President Donald Trump, his shadow hanging over midterm elections that will determine the future of his administration, used his final pitch Monday to ask voters to help preserve fragile GOP victories that could be erased by Democratic gains in Congress.

President Donald Trumps last campaign speech ahead of the midterm election on Monday night was interrupted for nearly 10 minutes after a woman collapsed and was later wheeled out of the Show Me Center in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, on a stretcher.

With the monthslong fight serving as a testing ground for his nationalist appeals and the strength of the coalition that powered him to the White House two years ago, Trump closed out a campaign season that has been defined by his racially charged rhetoric, hard-line immigration moves and scattershot policy proposals. Acknowledging the stakes in the closing days of campaigning, Trump stressed to voters that everything is on the line.

The incident marks the second time in a row Trump paused his speech after a medical emergency. In a previous rally at Fort Wayne, Indiana, on Monday, Trump paused after a person required medical attention.

Its all fragile. Everything I told you about, it can be undone and changed by the Democrats if they get in, Trump told supporters on a telephone town hall organized by his re-election campaign. You see how theyve behaved. You see whats happening with them. Theyve really become radicalized.

In an election-eve interview, Trump struck a gentler note with media conglomerate Sinclair Broadcasting, saying he regretted some of his caustic campaign rhetoric.

I would like to have a much softer tone. I feel to a certain extent I have no choice, but maybe I do, Trump said.

There was little of that on display as Trump spent his final hours on the trail Monday in Ohio and Indiana, with another stop planned in Missouri, where he harshened his rhetoric on illegal immigration and lobbed attacks at Democrats.

“Is there a doctor in the house, please,” Trump said while pointing to the crowd. “Doctor, please. Take your time. We have plenty of time, right?”

In a Monday tweet, he warned that law enforcement was strongly notified to watch closely for any ILLEGAL VOTING which may take place in Tuesdays Election (or Early Voting). Trump has falsely claimed that millions of illegal votes were cast in 2016, which he says deprived him of a victory in the popular vote, and has stoked concerns, without providing evidence, of rampant fraudulent voting.

U.S. President Donald Trump paused one of his typically raucous rallies as the crowd broke into song while an elderly woman received treatment following a collapse at the Show Me Center in Cape Girardeau, Mo. on Monday night.

He has also sought to distance himself from any potential blame if Republicans lose control of the House, saying, My primary focus has been on the Senate.

He warned supporters on the telephone town hall to get out and vote because the press is very much considering it a referendum on me and us as a movement.

At the rally, he stumped for Missouri Senate Republican candidate Josh Hawley, who is running to unseat Democrat Claire McCaskill in Tuesday’s midterm elections.

Republicans are increasingly confident they will retain control of the Senate, but they face Democratic headwinds in the House. In an interview with The Associated Press last month, Trump said he would not accept blame for a GOP defeat at the polls.

“I want to just thank everybody for the way you behaved, and at the end was beautiful, ‘Amazing Grace,’ that was beautiful.”

Sean Hannity Takes Stage at Trump Rally After All

Trump has maintained a busy campaign schedule in the final stretch of the race, with 11 rallies over six days. In the closing days Trump has brought out special guests to join him. Country singer Lee Greenwood performed Trump favorite God Bless the USA in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and was expected to appear Monday with the president in Cape Girardeau, Missouri.

In Indiana, Trump invited White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and counselor Kellyanne Conway on stage to speak along with his daughter Ivanka Trump.

The moment came during a rally where he was joined by Fox News host Sean Hannity, radio host Rush Limbaugh and TV personality Jeanine Pirro.

Fox News personality Sean Hannity and conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh were also slated to be special guests at the final rally, according to Trumps campaign, though Hannity insisted on Twitter he would only be covering (the) final rally for my show.

A Tallahassee police spokesman would not confirm or deny the videos were Beierle's. However, the man speaking in the videos looks like Beierle and biographical details mentioned in the videos match known facts about Beierle, including details about his military service. Also, the poster's YouTube username included the word "Scott," Beierle's first name. The existence of the videos was first reported by BuzzFeed.

At his rallies and on Twitter, Trumps closing argument has largely focused on fear — warning, without evidence, that a Democratic takeover would deliver the country into socialism, spurring an influx of illegal immigration and a wave of crime.

With the monthslong fight serving as a testing ground for his nationalist appeals and the strength of the coalition that powered him to the White House two years ago, Trump closed out a campaign season that has been defined by his racially charged rhetoric, hard-line immigration moves and scattershot policy proposals. Acknowledging the stakes in the closing days of campaigning, Trump stressed to voters that everything is on the line.

Attacks on favorite Trump foes House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters were staples of Trumps closing message to voters as he argued that Democrats would plunge the country into Venezuela-like chaos.

Joshua Quick spoke to ABC's Good Morning America on Sunday and said he grabbed Scott Paul Beierle's gun after it jammed, and hit him. Tallahassee Police have identified Beierly as the man who entered the Hot Yoga Tallahassee during a Friday night class and started shooting, killing two and wounding six. Police say the 40-year-old Beierle then turned the gun on himself but have offered no motive in the attack.

Its Election Day: Here Are the Biggest Issues for Voters

Faced with low Republican enthusiasm, Trump is convinced that immigration will again be an animating issue for his base. He seized on the caravans of Central American migrants to reinforce an immigration message that recalls the racially charged immigration talk of his 2016 campaign.

Thats an invasion. I dont care what they say, Trump said Monday of the thousands of migrants marching toward the U.S.-Mexico border.

Trump has maintained a busy campaign schedule in the final stretch of the race, with 11 rallies over six days. In the closing days Trump has brought out special guests to join him. Country singer Lee Greenwood performed Trump favourite "God Bless the USA" on Sunday in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and appeared with the president Monday night in Missouri.

Trump has also used the confirmation battle for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh to stir up his most loyal supporters, with his aides believing it to be one of the most effective arguments for bringing GOP voters to the polls. He frequently declares that 2018 is the election of Kavanaugh and the caravan.

"It's all fragile. Everything I told you about, it can be undone and changed by the Democrats if they get in," Trump told supporters Monday on a telephone "town hall" organized by his re-election campaign. "You see how they've behaved. You see what's happening with them. They've really become radicalized."

In the final sprint to Election Day, Trump has pushed forward with rallies amid news events that would have halted previous leaders — holding a massive event in Illinois the same day a gunman massacred 11 people in a Pittsburgh synagogue.

Often the candidates Trump has traveled to support feel like supporting actors in the theater of his rallies, though in the final days of the campaign Trump has been more generous in his praise of the Republicans he wishes to see elected.

With the monthslong fight serving as a testing ground for his nationalist appeals and the strength of the coalition that powered him to the White House two years ago, Trump closed out a campaign season that has been defined by his racially charged rhetoric, hard-line immigration moves and scattershot policy proposals. Acknowledging the stakes in the closing days of campaigning, Trump stressed to voters that everything is on the line.

In cramped aircraft hangars and pack arenas across battleground states, Trump has boasted about the energetic displays of support from his most loyal backers, drawing parallels to his own White House bid. Theres electricity in the air like I havent seen since 16, he said Monday.

In a Monday tweet, he warned that law enforcement was strongly notified to watch closely for any ILLEGAL VOTING which may take place in Tuesdays Election (or Early Voting). Trump has falsely claimed that millions of illegal votes were cast in 2016, which he says deprived him of a victory in the popular vote, and has stoked concerns, without providing evidence, of rampant fraudulent voting.

This is a very important election, Trump added, emphasizing the stakes. I wouldnt say its as important as 16, but its right up there.

Trumps midterm efforts will not stop with his Missouri rally on Monday night. He plans to spend Election Day encouraging voters to get to the polls from the White House. And his own bid for re-election in 2020 is already underway.

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. — President Donald Trump, his shadow hanging over midterm elections that will determine the future of his administration, used his final pitch to ask voters to help preserve "fragile" GOP victories that could be erased by Democratic gains in Congress.

"Its all fragile.

"You see how theyve behaved. You see whats happening with them. Theyve really become radicalized."

In an election-eve interview, Trump struck a gentler note with media conglomerate Sinclair Broadcasting, saying he regretted some of his caustic campaign rhetoric.

Trumps overwhelming tendency to focus on himself and his own political fortunes was again evident on Monday, and it threatened to overshadow his comments about the candidates who are actually on the ballot Tuesday. In Missouri, Trump spoke for nearly an hour before inviting the Republican Senate candidate there, Josh Hawley, on stage to say a few words. In Indiana, GOP Senate candidate Mike Braun waited 40 minutes, and in Ohio, Trump spoke for a half hour before calling the Republican gubernatorial candidate, Mike DeWine on stage to speak for a few minutes.

"I would like to have a much softer tone. I feel to a certain extent I have no choice, but maybe I do," Trump said.

There was little of that on display as Trump spent his final hours on the trail Monday in Ohio, Indiana and Missouri, where his rhetoric on illegal immigration turned harsh and he lobbed attacks at Democrats.

"The contrast in this election could not be more clear. Democrats produce mobs," Trump said at his final rally Monday night in Cape Girardeau, Missouri. "Thats whats happened. Republicans produce jobs."

The president also accused Democrats of wanting to make America “a giant sanctuary city for drug dealers, predators and bloodthirsty MS-13 killers.” A few hours later at a rally in Fort Wayne, Trump accused Democrats of “openly encouraging millions of illegal aliens to break our laws.” He did not, at any point, offer any evidence to support his claims.

In a Monday tweet, he warned that law enforcement was "strongly notified to watch closely for any ILLEGAL VOTING which may take place in Tuesdays Election (or Early Voting)."

"I do eventually want to unite," Trump said in Fort Wayne, Indiana, "but Im driving them crazy."

“Democrats are inviting caravan after caravan — isnt that nice — of illegal aliens to flood into our country and overwhelm your communities,” Trump said in Cleveland, falsely accusing his opponents of aiding a group of Central American refugees and migrants who are currently traveling north through Mexico.

Trump has also sought to distance himself from any potential blame if Republicans lose control of the House, saying, "My primary focus has been on the Senate."

In addition to making apocalyptic predictions about the future, Trump frequently reminisced about the past, specifically about his election victory two years ago over Democrat Hillary Clinton. At each of his rallies on Monday, thousands of supporters eagerly chanted “Lock her up!” as if it were still 2016.

He warned supporters on the telephone town hall to get out and vote because "the press is very much considering it a referendum on me and us as a movement."

Republicans are increasingly confident they will retain control of the Senate, but they face Democratic headwinds in the House. In an interview with The Associated Press last month, Trump said he would not accept blame for a GOP defeat at the polls.

Trump has maintained a busy campaign schedule in the final stretch of the race, with 11 rallies over six days. In the closing days Trump has brought out special guests to join him. Country singer Lee Greenwood performed Trump favourite "God Bless the USA" on Sunday in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and appeared with the president Monday night in Missouri.

In Indiana and again in Missouri, Trump invited White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and counsellor Kellyanne Conway on stage to speak along with his daughter Ivanka Trump.

Fox News personality Sean Hannity and conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh served as "special guests" at the final rally, according to Trumps campaign, though Hannity insisted on Twitter he would only be "covering (the) final rally for my show." Trump, however, did call Hannity to the stage.

Trump leaned heavily into the culture wars during his speeches. For instance, during the rally in Missouri, Trump mentioned the solid jobs numbers that came out on Friday as an afterthought, and immediately pivoted to discussing another story that broke that day that he seemed to view as more significant — the revelation that an obscure allegation of misconduct against Kavanaugh turned out to be bogus.

At his rallies and on Twitter, Trumps closing argument has largely focused on fear — warning, without evidence, that a Democratic takeover would deliver the country into socialism, spurring an influx of illegal immigration and a wave of crime.

Despite what Trumps comments might lead people to believe, neither Ford or Ramirez have recanted any part of their claims against Kavanaugh. But the presidents decision to attack them and subject them to further threats and public ridicule illustrates why women are reluctant to come forward with allegations against powerful men in the first place.

Attacks on favourite Trump foes House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters were staples of Trumps closing message to voters as he argued that Democrats would plunge the country into Venezuela-like chaos.

The president gave three speeches in three states during a whirlwind day on Monday. By the end of the final one in Cape Girardeau, his supporters seemed unsure what exactly is at stake on Tuesday, repeatedly chanting four more years! despite the fact Trump isnt on the ballot until 2020 and will likely serve either two or six more years.

Faced with low Republican enthusiasm, Trump is convinced that immigration will again be an animating issue for his base. He seized on the caravans of Central American migrants to reinforce an immigration message that recalls the racially charged immigration talk of his 2016 campaign.

Lock her up! chants werent just directed toward Kavanaugh accusers on Monday night. During his rally in Missouri, conservative political commentator Rush Limbaugh and Senate candidate Josh Hawley (R) each prompted the chant to be directed toward the typical object of Trumps abuse, Hillary Clinton.

"Thats an invasion. I dont care what they say," Trump said Monday of the thousands of migrants marching toward the U.S.-Mexico border.

Shortly after Ford came forward publicly with her account of being assaulted by Kavanaugh at a party while they were in high school, she disclosed that she and her family werent living at home because of threats she was receiving. Trump, however, called for renewed scrutiny on her anyway.

Trump has also used the confirmation battle for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh to stir up his most loyal supporters, with his aides believing it to be one of the most effective arguments for bringing GOP voters to the polls.

This woman came out and said she made up the story, Trump said on Monday evening in Fort Wayne, Indiana, referring to a woman in Kentucky who reportedly admits she fabricated an allegation against Kavanaugh.

"We energized the Republican Party with that," Trump said in Missouri. "The Democrats overplayed their hand."

In the final sprint to Election Day, Trump has pushed forward with rallies amid news events that would have halted previous leaders — holding a massive event in Illinois the same day a gunman massacred 11 people in a Pittsburgh synagogue.
