Trump tells Michigan rally: “This is not a crowd of a person who comes in second place”

President Trump held a rally Thursday in Freeland, Michigan, a state he won in 2016 and one that could be critical for him in 2020, too. Mr. Trump used the rally to attack his Democratic opponent, Joe Biden, calling this election “the most important election in the history of our country.”

The president rallied at an airport hangar, an outdoor alternative to the indoor rallies that have been made nearly impossible by the pandemic. The president and his supporters have begun calling his rallies “peaceful protests” as a way to skirt rules limiting gatherings due to COVID-19.
