WATCH LIVE: President Trump Holds Rally in Cleveland, OH Ahead of Midterm Elections


President Donald Trump will speak at the I-X Center in Cleveland, Ohio on Monday to gin up support for Republicans ahead of the midterms. The rally is scheduled to begin at 3:00 p.m. ET.

Since the midterm elections start on Tuesday, Trump is giving three speeches around the country as part of his final crunch to motivate voter turnout. The president’s event in the the Buckeye state will be followed by rallies in Indiana and Missouri.

Judging by his most recent rhetoric and talking points of choice from recent days, Trump will invoke illegal immigration and the current state of the national economy among his usual campaign hits.

Political observers and critics have questioned whether the national economy is in as good shape as the Trump Administration says, and while Republicans are hoping to use the economy as the foundation of their re-election message, the president has mostly preferred his recent fear-based rhetoric about Central American migrants slowly approaching the U.S. southern border.

Trump is also likely to talk about core voter issues like health care, gun policy and taxes. On such issues, there’s a open question in various political circles about how many voters will cast their ballots to hold a referendum on how Trump and the GOP have governed the country over the last two years.
