President Donald Trump will hold a rally Cape Girardeau, Missouri on Monday night to gin up support for Republicans ahead of the midterms. The rally is scheduled to begin at 10:00 p.m. ET.
Since the midterm elections are on Tuesday, Trump is giving three speeches around the country as part of his final crunch to motivate voter turnout. The president brought out some star power during his previous rallies in Indiana and Ohio, and since this rally will feature conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh and country music singer Lee Greenwood, he’s clearly keeping the right-wing celebrity factor going.
Sean Hannity was previously announced as a special guest for the rally as well, though the Fox News host insists he’s only interviewing the president beforehand and doing a live show from the venue.
Judging by his most recent rhetoric and talking points of choice from recent days, Trump will touch on 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.
