President Donald Trump boasted that he’s leading in early voting during his first of two campaign stop Saturday, this one in Muskegon, Michigan.
The president called his Democratic rival a ‘criminal’ and knocked around the state’s Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer – with his raucous crowd chanting lock him and her up.
‘It just came out, we’re leading – early voting,’ the president told thousands of supporters packed outside the Muskegon County Airport Saturday evening.
He told the crowd that the Democrats needed shown a ‘thundering defeat at the ballot box.’ ‘And by the way, it seems to be happening,’ the president said.
He admitted that he thought the election would have been in the bag had the coronavirus pandemic not happen.
‘This thing wasn’t going to even be an election,’ he said and then referenced the ‘plague.’ ‘I didn’t have to come to Michigan,’ Trump added, explaining he would have won the state because manufacturing had come back.

Upon arriving in Muskegon, Trump realized that the wind may do some damage to his hair.
‘Get me a hat out of that plane,’ he said nodding toward Air Force One.
He also joked that he was hat-less in a seat of Trump and winter hats.
About a third of the thousands of people gathered at the airport venue were wearing masks to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Aide John McEntee came onstage later and handed the president a red ‘Keep America Great’ hat.
At the rally, Trump hammered Michigan’s Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer for keeping the state locked down.
He also downplayed a recent right-wing militia plot to kidnap her.
‘They’re saying she was threatened. And she blamed me. And our people were the ones who worked for her people,’ Trump told the crowd.
In response a Trump fan shouted ‘liar!’
