8:25 PM: Trump says just like Pelosi, Whitmer is a hypocrite whose family plays by a different set of rules. He rips her husband for trying to get his boat in the water while businesses were going bankrupt due to the shut downs.

8:22 PM: Trump says Biden wants to “belittle the vaccine” so the Trump administration doesn’t get credit for it. He rips Biden’s “dangerous anti-vaccine conspiracy theories.”

8:15 PM: Trump says Israel and the UAE will sign the peace deal at the White House next week. Trump says the networks didn’t cover that he got nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize that he has coveted. Trump says he is not saying this “out of ego.”

8:10 PM: Trump, after citing the Space Force, says “we did more in 47 months” and Biden did in 47 years. He says a lot what he did was “destroy” the “horrible things” the Obama-Biden administration did like the Iran nuclear deal.

8:02 PM: Trump says it was like an “avalanche of companies leaving our country” before he became president. Trump says Biden wants to get rid of the tariffs to let China continue its pillaging.

7:56 PM: Trump says Biden decided to get out of the basement and come to Michigan because Trump is doing well in the polls. He rips Biden for backing NAFTA, and he says “Joe Hiden’s” campaign is “giving him hell” for admitting that Trump’s USMCA is better than NAFTA.

“Could you imagine if I lost to him?” Trump asks. “Don’t do that to me, Michigan.”

7:55 PM: Trump says before the virus, his administration added over 200 new auto and auto-parts plants. Trump is surprised it says “200” on the Teleprompter because he didn’t think his administration added that many plants. “I thought it was a much lower number,” Trump says. He says they have no choice with 200.

7:52 PM: Trump says he has spent the last four years trying to reverse 47 years of Biden’s failed policies.

He also talks about the “chicken tax” on light trucks and says Biden wanted to support the South Korean deal that would have ruined the truck industry.

7:35 PM: Trump says Dem. governors are not opening up states for “political reason.” Trump says Michigan needs a governor that lets Michigan play Big Ten football.

7:33 PM: After saying Biden is controlled by “AOC plus three” and the “super libs,” Trump says he convinced Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to get car plants to come to Michigan and says they better vote for him because he brought back so many plants.

7:28 PM: Trump promises a “safe and effective” vaccine by the end of the year. He claims there will be a vaccine soon.

7:27 PM: Trump now getting ready to commentate on Biden’s CNN interview as the Pundit-in-Chief. Trump says Biden conceded in the interview that the USMCA is better than NAFTA. Trump says Biden made a “mistake” from his standpoint because “he doesn’t know what’s going on.”

He says Biden has also pledged to terminate national security travel bans and will overwhelm the state with Jihadi refugees and others during a pandemic. Crowd chants: “Build the wall!”

7:23 PM: Trump says he is running to keep jobs in Michigan. He says before the China plague, we had the greatest economy in the  history of the world. “And now we’re building it again,” Trump says, again referring to the “super V” recovery. Trump says the future doesn’t belong to China and, “if we win, America wins.”

7:21 PM: Trump claims he has seen polls that show him up in Michigan. He then praises GOP Senate candidate John James after spotting him in the crowd.

7:20 PM: Trump, sensing the crowd’s enthusiasm, says this is not the crowd of someone who comes in second place. He says he felt the same energy in 2016 when 30,000 people showed up to his rallies in Michigan.

7:17 PM: Crowd greets Trump with “USA!” chants. Trump tells the crowd: “We’ve brought you a lot of car plants.” Trump promises a lot more. Trump tells the crowd that this is the most important election in the history of the country. He reminds the crowd that Biden has devoted his career to outsourcing Michigan’s jobs. Crowd boos loudly. He says Biden has been a globalist sellout for half a century. He says Biden has surrendered the country’s jobs to China and he wants to surrender the country to the mob. Trump says if Biden wins, China, rioters, arsonists, and the flag-burners win. Trump says he wouldn’t worry about it because he’s not going to win.

7:15 PM: Crowd fired up for Trump.

7:05 PM: Air Force One has landed, and the rally will start shortly.
