WATCH LIVE: President Trump Holds Rally in Fort Wayne, IN Ahead of Midterm Elections
President Donald Trump will give a speech in Fort Wayne, Indiana on Monday night to gin up support for Republicans ahead of the midterms. The rally is scheduled to begin at 6:00 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 Indiana event comes after a rally he held hours ago in Ohio, and he’ll hold another one in Missouri after this.
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.
