SARASOTA (CBSMiami) — Donald Trump stopped into Florida on the last day before the general election on November 8th.
Trump took the stage claiming he will win the race.
“In one day were are going to win the great state of Florida and we are going to take back the White House,” said Trump while at a rally in Sarasota. “Florida is my second home, a state I love so much.”
Not wasting time, Trump started on his opponent Hillary Clinton and her relation to the Sunshine State.
“And by the way, Hillary, once this is over, she’ll have nothing to do with this place,” said Trump.
Trump asked his supporters to get out and vote to beat a system that he is calling “rigged.”
“The system is rigged and at least we know it,” said Trump. “Hillary Clinton should not even be allowed to run for the presidency of the United States…What’s happening is a disgrace and our country is a laughing-stock all over the world.”
He went on, “You know what you can do, go out and vote tomorrow,” said Trump.
The GOP candidate painted a grim picture while talking about if his opponent wins the race.
“If they win, the American people will lose big league. This is it. Good luck. Get out there.”
He then touched down in Raleigh, North Carolina – another battleground state up for grabs – just after 3 p.m.
“You have one day until the election. It’s not even one day. You got a half-a-day to make every dream you’ve ever dreamed for your country and for your family to come true,” he said.
Trump was then off to Scranton, Pennsylvania.
“They say we’re tied in Pennsylvania. I don’t think so, I don’t think so,” he said. “I think we’re going to blow them out tomorrow in a lot of different ways. Blow them out.”
And then at around 8:30 p.m. he took the stage in Manchester, New Hampshire, the state that gave him his first primary win back in February
Meantime, his surrogates worked the campaign trail. Trump’s vice presidential pick, Mike Pence, touted the GOP candidate talking about Trump’s plans for jobs, law enforcement, and the economy in Duluth, Minnesota.
“We’re going to repeal every executive Obama order that’s stifling jobs and growth in this economy,” said Pence.
It’s a plan Trump also touted in Florida.
“A Trump administration will stop the jobs from leaving America and we will stop the jobs from leaving Florida,” said Trump.
Trump talked up his tax plan, comparing it to Clinton’s.
“As part of a plan to lower jobs, we are going to lower taxes on American businesses from 35 % to 15%,” said Trump. “Hillary Clinton wants to raise taxes.”
Trump also promised to get rid of the Affordable Care Act, also called ‘Obamacare.’
“Real change begins with repealing and replacing Obamacare,” said Trump promising to bring healthcare that would be at a fraction of the cost.
Trump also had a message for President Barack Obama who has been campaigning for Clinton.
“Tell this president to stop campaigning and get back to work,” said Trump.
And in returning to an original plan, Trump heavily mentioned at the beginning of his campaign, he spoke about his plan to keep illegal immigrants out by building a wall along the U.S.- Mexico border.
“A Trump administration will also secure and defend the borders of the U.S. and yes we will build a great wall and yes Mexico will pay for the wall,” said Trump.
In a fun moment during the event, a fan toss him a Halloween mask. He took it, admired it and commented on the hair saying, “nice set of hair! I’ll say that!”
Trump made many promises in his speech including to bring what he says will be change in the government.
“We will make America great again,” Trump said, closing off his speech.
To win the election on Tuesday, Trump needs to win Florida. Without the win, pundits say we would need a miracle.
“It’s really is close. I pray that everyone can make it out and make that great choice,” Trump supporter Beth Cann Capdevila told CBS4’s David Sutta.
“I’m so inspired. I can’t tell you the feelings I have. I want just a change. Why not just try something different than what’s going on,” Trump supporter John Cobb told Sutta.
Sutta says Trump’s stop marks his 27th campaign stop in Florida since he announced he was running. As for his opponent, Hillary Clinotn, she’s made 19 stops in the Sunshine State.
