Trump's campaign once again ends in Grand Rapids; will history repeat itself?


President Trump’s campaign made a final stop late Monday evening in Grand Rapids, Michigan, the same place he held his final campaign stop four years ago. In 2016, then businessman and candidate Donald Trump spent the last hours of his campaign appealing to voters in the city, where he held a large rally at the DeltaPlex arena. 

And it could be argued, the move worked.

Trump won Michigan over Hillary Clinton the next day by just under 11,000 votes, the narrowest margin of victory in any state in the country, and the first time Michigan chose a Republican since voters chose George H. Bush over Michael Dukakis in 1988.

Now, President Donald Trump is hoping for the same result, after making his final stop on the campaign trail in GR once again--this time appealing to voters at the Gerald R. Ford International Airport late Monday evening and into Tuesday morning.

“So, we are going to win the state of Michigan, and we are going to win four more years in that very beautiful, beautiful, beautiful house. It’s called the White House,” President Trump said. “We made history four years ago, and tomorrow, we are going to make history once again.”

According to Real Clear Politics polling data, President Trump trails Biden by 4.8 points in Michigan heading into Tuesday's election.
