happening now, breaking news. finish line, the presidential candidates and their surrogates are fanning out across the country tonight in the final hours of this unprecedented race for the white house. donald trump and hillary clinton are firing up their supporters and are they motivating their opponents as well? the last word, the trump and clinton campaigns are both making heavy investments in last-minute ads, buying primetime slots to deliver extended appeals to voters. tonight, as they make their final arguments for themselves and against each other, will talking to voters make a difference? motivating the base. the presidential candidates push to get their most ardent supporters out to the polls tomorrow. trump focusing in on the white working class voters who have catapulted him to the gop
nomination and clinton targets minority voters at the heart of the democratic party. will both sides come through for their candidate? all night long. the stars are out as the candidates and their biggest supporters barn storm through the battleground states late into the night and election day. cnn is live around the country to bring you all the excitement and all the tension. we want to welcome our viewers in the united states and around the world. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." this is cnn breaking news. >> breaking news on this election eve, as we count down to tomorrow's historic vote for president of the united states. tonight, the candidates are fighting to the finish for every last vote, especially in the handful of battleground states that could decide tomorrow's outcome. we just learned from president obama campaigning for hillary clinton, and we're standing by
to hear from donald trump this hou hour in pennsylvania. later tonight, he'll team up with mike pence for two morallies, first in new hampshire, finally in michigan. hillary clinton's campaign will be joined by the president and the first lady. a star-studded rally in philadelphia. clinton then goes on to north carolina for a late-night rally. and both campaigns are spending millions and millions on extended primetime television ads airing tonight. clinton's two-minute appeal features her speaking directly to voters, while trump is railing against what he calls the political establishment, showing images of clinton, president obama and others. and in a final picture of the race, our cnn poll of polls shows hillary clinton four points ahead of donald trump nationwide, 46-42%. we're covering all of that, much more this hour, this election
eve with our guesting, including congressman adam schiff, ranking member of the house intelligence committee and our correspondents and expert analysts are standing by as we get ready for a critical, critical election. let's begin right now with the clinton campaign. our senior washington correspondent jeff zeleny is in philadelphia for us. jeff, hillary clinton is about to hold a big rally there with the president and the first lady. but it won't be her last stop of the night. >> reporter: wolf, the obamas and the clintons will be here on independence mall in philadelphia, for what democrats hope is a passing of the torch. but before that is known, the clinton campaign has a nervous eye on so many battleground states. that's why hillary clinton is flying to raleigh, north carolina for a midnight rally. hillary clinton is racing through blue states in her fight to the finish. >> i can't do this without your help tomorrow.
this election is going to really set the course of our country. >> reporter: from pennsylvania to michigan and back again. >> so for those who are still making up your minds or thinking maybe it's not worth voting at all, let me just say the choice in this election could not be clearer. >> reporter: on the eve of the election, she's still working to shore up states democrats have won in the last two races, but democrats are pulling out all the stops to derail donald trump and his message for change. president obama also hitting michigan and new hampshire before joining clinton tonight on independence mall here in philadelphia. today, it seemed like he, not just his legacy, is on the ticket. >> michigan, whatever credibility i've earned, after eight years as president, i'm asking you to trust me on this one.
>> reporter: an unprecedented fall of campaigning of a sitting president and first lady, trying to pull clinton over the finish line. the fight against trump is also personal. >> it's bad being arrogant when you know what you're talking about. but it's really bad being arrogant when you don't know what you're talking about. >> reporter: heading into election day, the cnn poll of polls gives clinton a four-point edge but tighter in battlegrounds like florida, north carolina and ohio. the clinton campaign exuded more confidence today in the wake of another fbi bombshell. this time james comey clearing clinton again over her e-mails. she didn't mention it at all today, as she tried looking forward. >> i know that people are frustrated, a lot of people feel left out and left behind. there's fear, even anger in our country. but i've got to say, anger is not a plan, my friends.
>> reporter: on the brink of history, as the country decides where to elect its first woman president, clinton is trying to end on a high note, as she started more than 18 months ago, with this announcement video. >> i hope you'll join me on this journey. >> reporter: tonight, a new ad is airing, with clinton acknowledging a far bumpier journey than she imagined. >> i want to be a president for all americans, not just for those that support me. because we all have a role to play in building a stronger, fairer america. >> reporter: now, it was an extraordinary day on the campaign trail, wolf, in terms of the history of this country. never have we seen a sitting american president and first lady campaigning so much for someone they want to be their successor. in new hampshire, a short time ago, president obama almost sounded as though she was running again. she was nostalgic telling that old story from edyth childs, the south carolina woman who fired him up back in 2007 with an
anthem for his campaign, fired up, ready to go. he talked about that today. wolf, he was trying to transfer some of that energy and enthusiasm onto the clinton campaign. and tonight, they still need it, wolf. they're keeping an eye on several battleground states, hoping the president can help pull her across the finish line with a bigger margin of victory than she might even have otherwise. they're looking towards governing, but that only happens if she wins tomorrow. wolf? >> that is an accurate point. jeff zeleny in philadelphia for us. they're getting ready for a huge event there. donald trump is also on a while wind campaign swing this election eve with stops in five states. sara murray is in manchester, new hampshire. sara, trump will be joined by mike pence for the last of two rallies of the night. >> reporter: that's right, wolf. this was originally going to be donald trump's last rally of the night before his campaign
earlier, and that gives you an indication of how donald trump, with his jam-packed schedule today, even though he's been in high energy and good spirits on the trail, his campaign acknowledges that look, there is no simple, easy path for him to hit 270 tomorrow. it's going to be a steep slope. donald trump is closing out his 2016 presidential bid at a breakneck pace. >> this is the last day of our campaign. >> reporter: and relishing -- >> i'm not a politician. my only special interest is you. >> reporter: to presidential candidate, with just hours left to woo voters. >> with your vote, we are just one day away from the change you've been waiting for your entire life. >> reporter: the reality tv star turned gop nominee stretching his sunday campaign schedule
past midnight with his typical trump flare. >> hillary right now is fast asleep, she's sleeping so beautifully. >> reporter: today, he's touching down in five more battleground states. florida, north carolina, pennsylvania, new hampshire, and michigan. and tapping supporters from his children, and sarah palin and ru rudy giuliani to round out his day. >> the fbi, the director, was obviously under tremendous pressure. so they went through 650,000 e-mails in eight days. yeah, right. >> reporter: in the waning hours, our cnn poll of polls shows trump is in the hunt with 42% support nationwide, but
trailing clinton's 46%. >> she's doing fine, i'm doing fine in the polls and stuff. i don't know how. nobody goes to her rallies. >> reporter: his early voting in pivotal battleground states shows an uptick in latino turnout. the candidate who entered the race with this message -- >> when mexico spends its people, they're not sending their best. they're bringing drugs, they're bringing crime. they're rapists. and some, i assume, are good people. >> reporter: is now making a final plea to hispanic voters. >> to all of our wonderful hispanic communities in this state, i want you to know that you will have a true friend and champion in donald trump, that i can tell you. >> reporter: and relishing in the lighter moments on the campaign trail amid his high stakes sprint to the finish. >> nice head of hair, i'll say that. >> reporter: now, wolf, it's hard to overstate the improbable path that led to donald trump, this billionaire businessman, crashing through the field of
republican candidates and beating the republicans to take on hillary clinton. in new hampshire, right here, is where he got his first victory in the primaries as a presidential candidate. so it will be interesting to see when he does show up if any of that nostalgia seeps through on the campaign trail. >> we'll stand by for live kompbl of that this hour. sara, thank you very much. let's get more with our correspondents and political experts. gloria, donald trump, he's got a huge challenge in these next two speeches that are coming up. one this hour, one a bit later tonight. she's done five of them. he's showing he does have remarkable energy. >> he's trying to turn out his base, the trump voters they might be hidden in a lot of these blue states. you can't say that donald trump hasn't been energetic about trying to reach every potential voter he can reach. the republican national committee has a great get out the vote effort this year
opposed to 2012 when there was a great deficit on that score. so i think what we see donald trump doing and what we see his campaign doing is seeing a whole dozen or more states, they believe are within a margin of error. you can talk to pollsters about it, they might disagree. this is their shot. tomorrow is the day, and they're going to go all out to gather that base and to close on an argument, i believe, they believe, has worked for them. >> dana? >> well, first of all, you're right. it is important to give donald trump his due in terms of the stamina. i mean, i'm not 70, and i can't even imagine doing what he's doing. you're also pumped up by adrenaline, both candidates are. you talked about the fact that he's really going around and trying to energize his base. at this point, it's a two-way street. he is a performer and he's energized by the crowds. there's no question about it. that is almost entirely what he
focuses on when he is going to an event, coming from an event, when he's talking to his aides. it's always about the crowds, the crowds, the crowds. he talks about it during the event, as well. so he clearly wants to finish leaving nothing on the field, and i think that's clearly what this is about. the fact that michigan is one of his final states today, i do think is fascinating. if he could come closer than republicanis have been able to come in a generation, it would be noteworthy and very telling as to the demographic split in this election. >> he may win ohio, which is a huge prize in the industrial midwest. there is a shift in demographics in the base of the democratic party that has shifted away from the industrial midwest to states like virginia and colorado and nevada and maybe florida. but what you say is so true.
he's trying to energize his base, and what the problem has been for donald trump from the beginning is, his base is not large enough to win a general election. and he has to -- he had to be about the business of expanding that base. and the question remains as we sit here tonight, is there some miraculous path to do that? >> he has been different these past couple of weeks. you've got to admit. >> oh, yeah. >> very disciplined, reading those scripts, not tweeting. >> we've seen this twice in the campaign. he had a disastrous august. his campaign was all but written off. he went on the teleprompter, we showed discipline. the debates went badly for him, he misbehaved in between debates. when the debates ended, after the tape debacle, he was very disciplined, focused, a message aimed at republican voters, consolidated the republican base to a large degree. so that's largely why this race is close. >> david, you have to admit,
donald trump with no real political experience, he beat 16 republican candidates, senators, governors for the nomination, now he's giving hillary clinton the run of her life in this campaign. >> as a first-time candidate, he's demonstrated a lot of retail political skills, and to dana's point, both candidates have left it all out on the field. the other day when secretary clinton was out in the rain campaigning, it reminded me of president obama about a week before the 2008 election day, when he was out campaigning in the rain, people will remember him in pennsylvania, in that windbreaker. the same thing, that sense that they've given it all they have and it's up to the voter. >> jeffrey toobin, you have to admit that he's stunned not only the united states but the world with his success so far. >> it's really an astonishing story when you think about the only other non-politician to be the nominee of the republican party was dwight eisenhower.
all he did was win the most important war in the history of the world. and the other person who won the nomination is donald trump trump. historians are going to be evaluating this for a long time, win or lose. he -- i do think, though, to quote george w. bush, when we say he's reading the teleprompter, that might be the soft bigotry of low expectations. we are saluting him for reading every word that comes up on the teleprompter. [ overlapping speakers ] >> we're going to have live coverage of donald trump's speech coming up. we're getting ready for that. we heard from the president of the united states in the last hour when donald trump goes to the microphones there in scranton, pennsylvania. we'll hear from him. but jim sciutto, you've been tracking potential threats on this election day here in the united states, specifically cyber threats. what are you learning? >> that's right. the department of homeland security is tracking them very
closely. there were things like a twitter outage. that was actually a technical thing. you had groups like gucifer, which is a very powerful hacking organization, it claimed over the weekend to have penetrated the federal elections committee. i've spoke with them, they have seen no evidence of successful hacking. the fec is not involved in counting votes. they made this claim we're inside, there's evidence democrats are rigging the vote, parallel to some of donald trump's talking points. but they're not actively involved in counting votes. the thing is, this is an information war. that's the way it's described to me by cyber experts and intelligence officials. so it's not so much necessarily about changing the outcome of the election, it's about sewing doubt, and the intelligence community has blamed russia for this information war.
arguably, they've already won that war, because you've had a months-long attack on democratic party officials, revelation of democratic party e-mails on a daily basis released through wikileaks. huge trolling operations pushing out fake news, questions about the voting system, raising doubts whether the system is rigged, whether it can survive this. with those doubts out there, frankly all of us are experiencing it. you're reading about it on the web a lot, particularly from the republican party. arguably that information war has been won. we're going to be watching tomorrow, because there are a lot of ways that information war can continue into election day. >> pamela brown, you're our justice correspondent. i know you know the justice department is sending monitors to 28 states to make sure the election process goes as it's supposed to go. tell us more about the role that these observers are going to
play. >> more than 500 doj monitors in 28 states. essentially they're going to be looking for voting rights come paints, voter suppression, efforts, that kind of thing. as jim touched on, there is concern that perhaps there could be these patrolling operations to disseminate fake news. so that's another part of this whole evasion, but as jeffrey can talk to, there was a shelby case in 2013 which changes the role for the justice department. they can go longer go into these polling stations. >> this is really important. in 2013, as pam said, the supreme court effectively ended the voting rights act. and this is the first national election in light of that. in north carolina today, you have the north carolina republican party bragging about how minority turnout is down after pollin places, the number of polling places in minority neighborhoods have been reduced.
i mean, this is something that i think everyone is going to want to look at and see what the impact is over the course of tomorrow and through the election. >> donald trump, we're told now, has taken the stage in scranton, pennsylvania. let's listen in. >> just one day we are going to win the great state of pennsylvania and we are going to take back the white house. [ cheers and applause ] this election will decide whether we're ruled by a corrupt, political class or whether we are ruled by yourselves, the people. it is time to reject a failed political elite that has bled this country dry. to all the people of pennsylvania, i say we are going to put the miners and the
factory workers and the steel workers back to work. we're bringing our companies back. the trade policies of bill and hillary clinton have destroyed manufacturing in your state and throughout the country. i want to take this moment to share a message with all of the democratic voters in our country who are thirsting for change like everybody else, everybody is thirsting, thirsting for change. you're tired of a government that works only for wall street and the special interests. you're tired of the reckless foreign policy. the crazy wars that are never won. hillary clinton is the last stand for the wall street and special interest donors and to
special interest themselves. and hillary is the face of failure. she's the face of failure. she's the face of failed foreign policy. real change begins -- she is indeed the face of failure. look at what she's done with e-mails. look at the mess. look at the mess, and look at the corruption. real change begins immediately with the repealing and replacing of the disaster known as obamacare. [ applause ] this is a great room. we've had great victories in this room, by the way. [ cheers and applause ]
and i went to school in pennsylvania. and my kids went to school in pennsylvania. so i guess we assume it's a good place to learn. look, have you been seeing the polls, by the way? oh, boy. oh, boy. see the dishonest people back there, the media, the totally dishonest. [ crowd booing ] they are so dishonest. [ crowd chanting ] >> they are so dishonest, folks. you can't even read articles in certain papers
"the new york times" is a total lie. it is so false. i'm just telling you, such lies, such lies. such fabrication, such made-up stories. now "the times" is going out of business soon, that's the good news. but such made-up stories. such vicious made-up stories. but they're going a little crazy, because we're leading in ohio. we're leading in iowa. we're leading in new hampshire where i'm going to be in a little while. we're doing fantastically well in north carolina. i think we're leading. we i believe are leading in florida. [ applause ] and now hillary just announced she's going to additional stops. she's going to michigan. traditionally, not really a republican state.
but you know, i've been talking -- i was man of the year in michigan a number of years ago. and i started telling and talking about your car business is being stolen from you. i've been saying it for years and years and years. and you know what? michigan now agrees. we're leading in michigan. we're leading. and when i heard that crooked hillary is going there tonight, she had to. nobody thought in terms of michigan. when i heard, i figured you know what? i have nothing to do tonight, so i'll go there tonight and give it the last word, okay? so after this, i'm going to new hampshire. and then i'm going to michigan. oh, we're going to have a great victory tomorrow, folks. we're going to have a great victory. they have no idea.
the dishonest media has no idea. actually, they do have an idea. they're saying what is going on? and look at these people and look at this enthusiasm. there's nothing like it. by the way, and i have to say, this is considered the history of this country. this is actually -- and you've been hearing it -- this is considered the greatest movement. nobody has ever seen anything like this, folks. nobody has ever seen anything like that. >> i was thinking today, it's a movement, if you really think about it, it's a movement of common sense. it's a movement of competence. it's not a movement where we give $150 million to iran, where we give them $400 million in cash but that turns out to be
$1.7 billion in cash to iran. [ crowd booing ] >> for hostages, for hostages, which our president lied about. and just one other thing -- why is he campaigning all the time? he ought to be working on jobs, on getting rid of isis, on our borders, on our health care, which is failing so badly. boy, oh boy. and she can't get anybody to go to her rallies, so she gets jay zee -- [ crowd booing ] he uses the worst language i have ever heard. and by the time he's finished, what happens? he and beyonce, they're finished. by that time, most of the people have left. so she thinks she's getting people by the time she speaks they're all gone. she should just take a small room and talk.
talk. just take a small room and talk. it's just been announced that the residents of pennsylvania are going to experience a massive double digit premium hike. so high that i won't tell you what it is. it's very high. all 67 counties in pennsylvania, most of which i won in the primaries, right? [ applause ] almost all. almost every one of them are losing obamacare insurers next year. but the truth is, it's not going to matter because we're going to repeal it and replace it. don't worry about it. so you can leave here happy. premiums are surging, companies are leaving, insurers are fleeing, doctors are quitting, and deductibles are going through the roof. yet crooked hillary clinton wants to double down on
obamacare, making it even more expensive than it is right now. [ crowd booing ] i'm asking for your vote so we can repeal and replace obamacare and save health care for every family in pennsylvania. [ applause ] and by the way, for every family in this country. real change also means restoring honesty to our government. hillary clinton is the most corrupt person ever to seek the office of the presidency of the united states. she's threatened national security. she sold her office to the highest bidder. and then to cover her tracks, she deleted 33,000 e-mails after receiving a congressional subpoena.
[ crowd chanting "lock her up" ] for president. she's being protected by a rigged system. and part of the rigged system is the dishonest media, believe me. they're rigging the system. [ crowd booing ] true. it's true. don't worry, they'll never show the crowds, folks. they show my face, never show the crowd. it took over a year for the fbi to review 50,000 e-mails and then just eight days they reviewed 650,000 e-mails? [ crowd booing ]
so now it's up to the american people to deliver justice at the ballot box tomorrow. you've got to get out and vote. [ applause ] let's swamp them. pennsylvania, let's swamp them. you've got to get out. our country has never, ever done anything like they're doing right now when it comes to justice. james cartwright, four-star general two weeks ago admitted to one mistake. and he did it on the basis -- did it on the basis of national security, he said. and i can understand that. he may go to jail for up to five years. general petraeus' life has been destroyed for doing 1/100th of what hillary clinton did. so sad.
so sad. it's honestly a disgrace. and now she's allowed to run for president and general cartwright will end up being in jail. my contract with the american voter begins with a plan to end government corruption and take back our country from the special interests and the donors. i want the entire corrupt washington establishment to hear the words from all of us, when we win tomorrow, we are going to washington, d.c. to drain the swamp! [ applause ] [ crowd chanting "usa" ]
they say we're tied in pennsylvania. i don't think so. i don't think so. i think we're going to blow them out tomorrow in a lot of different ways, blow them out. no way. this is not the sound of a second place finisher, that i can tell you. no, they have us tied. don't forget, we were 12 points down three weeks ago. and then after the debates, all of a sudden we started going up.
we started going up, and it was great. and now they have us even. but i think we're much better than that in pennsylvania. i do. so do you. get out there and vote. at the core of my contract is my plan to bring back our jobs. pennsylvania has lost almost 40% of its manufacturing jobs since nafta. a deal signed by bill clinton and supported by his lovely life hillary clinton. lovely lady. america has lost 70,000 factories since china entered the world trade organization. another bill and hillary-backed disaster. we are living through the greatest jobs theft in the history of the world. a trump administration will stop the jobs from leaving america, and we will stop the jobs finally from leaving pennsylvania. very simply, folks, very simply, and you haven't heard this, very
simply, if a company wants to fire their workers, leave pennsylvania, and move to another country like mexico, and then ship their products back into the united states, we will make them pay a 35% tax on those products. and you know what's going to happen? they're not going to leave. and if they do, that's okay, the country will make a lot of money. but they're not going to leave. they're not going to leave. now, your politicians could have thought of that, some of them. some of them can't for they have other problems. we will renegotiate nafta, one of the worst deals, probably the -- not probably, the single worst trade deal ever made in the history of this world, it's true. we'll stand up to china and stop the job killing transpacific
partnership, which hillary clinton wants. you know, she called it the gold standard and then lied during the debate. and she said, i never said that. i said, yes, you did, you called it the gold standard. turned out she was lying. of course, she could look at it differently. it is the gold standard for the other side, not for the united states. for the other side. how about this. how about this. how about getting the questions for the debate? [ crowd booing ] they fed her illegally, they fed her the questions for the debate, donna brazile. they fed her the questions for the debate. and she never came -- [ crowd chanting "cnn sucks" ] they fed her the questions to
the debate and she didn't say, i can't do this, i'm sorry, it's so unethical. can you imagine if i was given the questions to the debate, what would happen? the biggest stories -- you don't even read this. you read a little about donna brazile. they gave her to the questions to numerous debates against bernie sanders. and bernie sanders, he is really upset. i would bet you he would wish that he didn't give her that little nod, because he made a deal with the devil. you know it. he ruined the legacy. he really had a very important legacy going, folks. he ruined his legacy when he did that, and he's got to be very embarrassed. he's got to be very, very embarrassed. as part of our plan to bring back jobs, we are going to lower taxes on american business, from 35% to 15%. [ applause ]
and we will massively cut taxes for the middle class, the forgotten men and women of this country, who built our country. we will massively lower taxes. it's in our plan. and i'll tell you, hillary, and you see her plan, she's going to raise taxes substantially, folks. we're the highest taxed nation in the world and she's going to raise taxes. we will lift restrictions on american energy, including shale, oil, natural gas, and clean coal. hillary is openly stated she wants to shut down the mines and ban shale production. you folks can't be too happy about that, i guess. we are going to unleash an
energy revolution right here in pennsylvania. we will cancel billions of dollars in global warming payments to the united nations. billions and billions and billions. and use that money to rebuild the infrastructure of the united states. and we will put our miners back to work and we will put our steel workers back to work. they're going back to work. we will rebuild our inner cities. the african-american community, the hispanic community, living in the inner city have been treated very unfairly. crime that is so bad, and i say it, you can't sometimes walk to a store or you get shot.
horrible education, and no jobs. no jobs. for 100 years, democrats have ruled the inner cities. unabated, unbroken. we are going to fix our inner cities. we're going to bring back jobs. we're going to bring back safety. we're going to bring education to the inner cities. and i say, because there's such unbelievable potential in terms of people within our inner cities. and i say, honestly, folks, what do you have to lose? it's so bad now. what do you have to lose? i will fix it. we are going to spend, and we are going to bring those jobs back. we are going to fix our inner cities. what do you have to lose to the african-american community and to the hispanic community?
and by the way, take a look at what's happening in florida and other places. the african-american community likes donald trump and they're not liking voting for hillary clinton very much. they're not showing up. they don't want to vote for her. the hispanic community, the numbers are becoming great. the cubans gave me a bay of pigs award last week. the entire cuban community of miami, bay of pigs association. a lot of trends are very disturbing to the media. i'll tell you, you look at what's going on. [ crowd booing ] and my numbers with the african-american community are -- i knew that was going to happen. i knew it. but we're going to fix the inner cities. we will become a rich nation again. but to be a rich nation, we must
also be a safe nation. hillary clinton wants a 550% increase in syrian refugees flowing into our country. [ crowd booing ] her plan will import generations of terrorism, extremism, and radicalism into your schools and throughout your communities. when i'm elected president, we will suspend the syrian refugee program and we will keep radical islamic terrorists the hell out of our country! [ cheers and applause ] have no choice. we have no choice. a trump administration will also secure and defend the borders of the united states. and yes, we will build a great wall. [ applause ]
[ crowd chanting "build that ball" ] [ crowd chanting "build that wall" ] >> are you ready? and who is going to pay for that wall? >> mexico! >> 100% correct. they will. they have unbelievable how they've done with our country. i was with the president of mexico three months ago. terrific. it was a terrific meeting. but you know, when you have highways going into a country
it's got to be like a two-way highway. right now they get all the jobs and the factories and plants. they get all the income, all the money, the taxes. we get unemployment, and we get drugs. we get nothing. that will all change, folks. it will change very, very fast. and it will be a two-lane highway. maybe one lane for a little while. but just for a little while. they have to catch up. this is a lot of years, a lot of years we've been abused by people that don't know what they're doing. a lot of years we've been abused by stupid politicians, very stupid politicians. hillary clinton supports totally open borders. there goes your country. and her plan gives your social security and medicare benefits. she wants to give them to illegal immigrants. we're going to take care of our veterans, folks.
we're going to take care of our veterans. hillary also strongly supports sanctuary cities like in san francisco where kate steinle was murdered by an illegal immigrant deported at least five times. couldn't keep him out. we're going to keep them out. they come back, five years. they come back again, ten years. believe me, nobody is coming back. we will cancel all federal funding to sanctuary cities. we will stop illegal immigration, deport all criminal aliens and dismantle every last criminal gang and cartel threatening our citizens. have to do it. have to do it. [ applause ] have to do it. we will also repeal the obama-clinton defense sequester and rebuild our badly depleted military.
it means a new future for philadelphia's navy shipyard, right? i know it well. i went to school in philadelphia. i know it well. it's going to be activated again, really activated. i'm honored to have the endorsement of more than 200 top admirals and generals and 22 medal of honor recipients, and the laist is growing rapidly. and they told me on mosul the other night, i was at ft. bragg, we had 25,000, 27,000 people in a field. it was unbelievable. and some of the generals and admirals came up to me, we had a lot of them there. they said, mr. trump, you're so right on mosul. you're so right. you know, i've been saying the element of surprise. four months ago, we say, our leaders, "we are going to attack
mosul in four months." a month later, we say, we are going to attack mosul three months, we are going in. because we're going to get the leaders of isis who are in mosul. well, you have to understand, they've already left when you said the four months, right? they're gone. then two months, then one month, then one week, a few weeks ago. we will be going into mosul in one week. the element of surprise. the great general douglas macarthur, right? spinning, spinning in his grave. the general great george patton. can you imagine what they must be -- let's assume they could actually see what's happening, maybe they are. can you imagine what they must be thinking? these were great warriors, great generals. as we tell the enemy exactly what we're going to do, when we're going to be there, where we're going to enter. oh, boy, folks, we're going to
have such a different country. you're going to be so proud of your country again. you're going to be so proud. wouldn't it be nice if nothing were said by our politicians and by obama? wouldn't it be nice if they did the job and then had a news conference a week later and said, total victory. they're having a very hard time right now. the leaders and the people have gone. and the other fighters are entrench and it's much more difficult than they thought, because of that. but the generals said, you're so right on that, mr. trump, you're so right. hillary in our failed establishment have dragged us into foreign wars that have made us less safe and never end. they never end. shipped our jobs -- that will all change when we win the presidential election. [ applause ]
because from now on, it's going to be america first. america first. [ crowd chanting "usa" ] is everybody going to vote tomorrow? >> yes! >> get your family, get your friends. no matter what you do, you've got to get out and vote. the whole world is laughing at us. they're laughing at what's going on in our country. when you look at trade, we don't win. trade, trade, with the world,
trade. we're $800 billion in the hole with the trade deficit with the world. with china, almost $500 billion trade deficit. who negotiates these deals? you know who negotiates them? political hacks. political hacks. dealing against the toughest, smartest people that have been trained -- they've been trained to do nothing but this. they laugh at the stupidity of our country. but you know what, we have the greatest negotiators in the world. we have the greatest businesspeople in the world. we're going to use these great businesspeople, carl icahn endorsed me, so many others. we're going to use our great leaders, our great businesspeople. it's time. it's time. think of it, almost $800 billion, all this work, all this everything, and we have a deficit. $800 billion. to all americans, i say, it's time for change. it's time for leadership.
in summing up, just think about what we can accomplish in the first 100 days of a trump administration. we are going to have the biggest tax cuts since ronald reagan. hillary's going to raise your taxes. she's going to raise your taxes. we are going to protect your social security and medicare and you know what hillary's going to do. you know what hillary's going to do, right? not good what she's going to do with your social security. all right, let's -- we will eliminate every unnecessary job-killing regulation. a disaster. cancel every illegal obama executive order. protect your religious liberty.
we will rebuild our badly depleted, and you know what's going won with the military. you see it all the time. we will rebuild our badly depleted military and we are going to finally take care of our great veterans. provide school choice and put an end to common core. we're bringing education local. we will support the men and women, these are great people, of law enforcement. support. and we will save our 2nd amendment, which is under siege. hillary clinton is going to do big, big bad numbers on your 2nd amendment. and appoint justices to the
united states supreme court who will uphold and defend the constitution of the united states. i can't believe i'm saying this. it started on june 16th, last year. june 16th. it's a long time. long time. thank you, i love you, too, darling. thank you. i can't believe i'm saying this. you have one day until the election and now it's less than that. it's been a long journey. remember how i entered and we had 17 governors and senators and you know, the old story. and one by one, right, all together, one by one by one by one, and we ended end getting -- by the way, some incredible endorsements. ben carson, mike huckabee. so many others. so many others.
almost -- almost all of them. not quite, but almost all of them. they signed the pledge and they honored the pledge. but almost all of them and it's great. but now we have one flawed candidate to beat. one person who will not be able to do the job for you, folks. will not be able to do the job. you have one day to make every dream you've ever dreamed for your country and your family come true. you have one magnificent chance to beat this corrupt system and to deliver justice for every forgotten man, every forgotte n woman, and every forgotten child in this nation. it will never happen again. it will never happen again, folks. in four years, not going to happen. not going to happen. it's never going to happen again. do not let this opportunity slip
away. we are fighting for every citizen who believes that government should serve the people. not the donors and not the special interests. and we are fighting to bring us all together as americans. we're a divided nation. we're a very badly divided nation. we're going to be brought together. just imagine what our country could accomplish if we started working together as one people, under one god, saluting one american flag. wouldn't it be nice? i'm asking you to dream big. vote. we are just one day away from the change you've been waiting for for your entire life. you got to go out and vote. get everybody to vote.
it will be the greatest vote you ever cast in your lifetime because together, we will make america wealthy again. we will make america strong again. we will make america safe again. and, yes, we will make america great again. thank you, everybody. thank you. god bless you, everybody. god bless you. get out and vote! thank you, pennsylvania. thank you. >> donald trump making his final appeal to voters in pennsylvania right now. and, indeed, across the country. gloria borger, let's get a little analysis. he basically went through all of his major talking points. >> he went through his major talking points. i think he went back a little bit to the stream of consciousness that we've seen during the campaign.
riffing on hillary clinton. telling african-americans what you have to lose. but also calling clinton the face of failure. which is really something he wants to use to motivate his base. this was a base-motivating speech, as he said, get out there and vote. >> dana, he also said it's a rigged system. >> absolutely, that's what this is all about at the end. she's the insider. he's the outsider. she's going to bring more of the same, he's going to bring something different. i just have to say as we're closing out, i've been listening to this song for the past year and a half, you can't always get what you want is his closing song. i've never understood that. >> he just likes -- >> david axelrod, his message -- his message does resonate with millions of americans. >> well, in the heart of pennsylvania, in particular, that, you know, anti-trade message, anti-immigrant message has found an audience, particularly in the industrial heartland where people have felt
these changes in our economy very, very strongly, but i was struck, having gone around the table and given him all this credit for being disciplined, that he did sort of devolve into open mike night again, which has been a problem for him in this campaign. i look at that and i say, will that grow your vote? and i raise that question earlier. i raise it again. he is -- you can only get the same people to vote once, and i don't think that was a base-building speech. >> david swerlick. >> he sounded wistful to me, if he pulls it off and becomes president, rough draft of the state of the union. if he loses and hillary clinton becomes president, where does he go with the stream of consciousness, all these issues from kate steinly to trade, we're all going to be asking ourselves what happens next? >> there's policy point that i think is worth pointing out. he says he's going to overturn obamacare. if he wins, he's going to keep senate and he'll keep the house. they really will overturn
obamacare. i mean, this is really one of the -- >> well, maybe. needs 60 votes. >> you know, they'll get rid of the filibuster. i mean, i think this is a true campaign promise he's making. and i think voters can decide whether they want to or not, but obamacare is gone. >> it is a lot more possible if he's president. no question. >> yeah, if he's president, he has a republican majority in the senate -- >> which he will. >> -- and a republican minority in the house -- >> which he will. >> pamela brown, it was a very rousing speech, the crowd there loved it. >> that's absolutely right. you know, you look on the heels of what happened yesterday with the fbi coming out and essentially closing the probe into hillary clinton, for now, unless, of course, new e-mails surface. this was something that was a key talking point for donald trump. he doesn't have that anymore. but the situation is that that will be something that will continue to hang over hillary clinton no matter what happens tomorrow. >> jim sciutto, quick thought. >> two quick things. on iran and on the tpp, hillary being for it before she was against it. he had the makings of what could have been substantive criticisms
of her policy stand, but mixed in with all the other stuff throughout the debates lost the opportunity. >> all right. we're going to continue our special coverage, nonstop coverage here on cnn throughout this night. all day tomorrow. want you to stay with us. in the meantime, that's it for me. i'm wolf blitzer in "the situation room."
