WASHINGTON — In his final pitch to voters before Election Day, President Trump warned a Democratic victory would destroy the booming economy and create a “socialist nightmare.”
Speaking to a crowd in Fort Wayne, Ind., Trump said America’s “single best economy” is at stake if Republicans don’t prevail in the midterms.
“If the radical Democrats take power, they will take a wrecking ball to our economy and to the future of our country,” Trump said, prompting boos from the crowd.
“The Democrat agenda will deliver a socialist nightmare,” Trump added. “The Republican agenda is delivering the American dream. Optimism. The American dream.”
Trump made three rally stops on Election Eve and spread a doomsday message. He accused Democrats — without evidence — of wanting to bring in undocumented immigrants to overwhelm schools, hospitals and communities.
“If you want more caravans and more crime, vote Democrat tomorrow,” Trump said.
Facing a severe gender gap, Trump brought on stage his three most high-profile female White House staffers: daughter Ivanka Trump, Kellyanne Conway and Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who made a special appeal to fellow mothers.
“I work for this president because I care about my kids’ future and I care about the future of our country,” the White House press secretary said.
Earlier in the day, Trump said he regretted not taking a “softer tone” in his first two years of office, in an interview with ABC 7 (WJLA-TV).
But at the Indiana rally, the president relished in making Democrats go nuts and said he’s not yet ready to tone it down.
“I do eventually want to unite, but the fact is we’re driving them crazy,” Trump said. “We’re driving them crazy. They don’t know what to do. They are going loco.”
