11:40 PM: “Two years ago we shocked the Washington establishment and stunned the world… when we defied the pundits and the critics and rejected the failires of the status quo and elected a government that finally puts America first,” Trump says. He says his supporters weren’t surprised, though.
He says every day since the “failed old ruling class” has tried so hard to claw their way back to power.
“How can they be opposed to the strongest economy we’ve ever had?” Trump wonders, including for Asians, Hispanics, blacks. “There’s gotta be something on their minds.”
He says the the old ruling class are the ones that shipped jobs, stole wealth and lined their pockets at the expense of working-class Americans.
Trump asks voters to vote against the ruling class on Tuesday.
There was medical emergency in the front row, standing area of the Show Me Center at the Trump rally in Cape Girardeau. The patient was carried out on a stretcher. The crowd sang “Amazing Grace” when first responders carried the person out. @KOMUnews pic.twitter.com/dUU4DnJEeu

11:31 PM: Trump talking about cracking down on China’s unfair trade policies. He says after years of rebuilding other countries, we are rebuilding our country with American aluminum, American iron, and American steel. He says the steel industry is roaring back to life because of beautiful tariffs.
“Every day is promises made, promises kept,” Trump says.
He talks about his proposals to reduce prescription drugs. (He realized how powerful the office of the presidency really is..)
11:25 PM: Trump says Democrats are encouraging illegal aliens to violate our laws to sign them up for free health care, free education… He says Democrats want them to give them the right to vote… “I can’t imagine why,” Trump says.
Trump says Democrats want “totally open borders, which means crime will pour into our country.” He says Democrats do not want any protection for working Americans re: immigration policies.
11:24 PM: Trump says America can’t protect “really rich” nations… “It’s not fair,” Trump says. “And we’re working it out… We’re talking about a lot of money.”
11:23 PM: Trump says Democrats will eliminate Medicare Advantage while Republicans will protect it for seniors who have earned it and paid for it. He says Republicans will always protect people with preexisting conditions while Democrats will give health care to illegal aliens.
11:20 PM: Trump warns Democrats will raise taxes and destroy Medicare with their socialist takeover of health care if they take back power. Trump still upset about the “one vote” that prevented him from repealing and replacing Obamacare.
11:19 PM: Hawley tells the crowd that McCaskill reminds her of Hillary Rodham Clinton. Blasts McCaskill’s record for supporting open borders as the crowd chants “Lock Her Up!” He says McCaskill has spent a lot of time in politics, voted for amnesty, etc… and has a phony foundation just like Hillary.
11:15 PM: Trump says McCaskill will no longer agree with him on border security on Wednesday if she wins re-election. He says she will no longer remember anything she said about agreeing with Trump on Wednesday and never vote with him. “She’s not going to vote for us,” Trump says, reminding the crowd that she didn’t vote for Kavanaugh. He says McCaskill has one of the most “open-borders voting records” in Congress. She voted against Kate’s Law, against enhanced vetting, and for “deadly sanctuary cities” for criminal illegal aliens.
Trump in Missouri mocks Claire McCaskill for backing his recent efforts on immigration: "She said the Democrats are crazy. And then she said ‘and I agree with our president on border security.’ All of a sudden she agrees with me… On Wednesday she will no longer agree with me.”

“Democrats produce mobs. Republicans produce jobs,” Trump says.

10:20 PM: Rush say Trump is “indefatigable…doesn’t get tired… just keeps going.”
He says Trump doesn’t have to put up with this but “thank God” he puts up with the abuse.
“We’re defending an America that has strayed from our founding. Nothing to with race. Nothing to do with gender. Nothing to do with any of the identity politics labels. It has to do with culture. It has to do with protecting and defending the Constitution.”
10:18 PM: Rush says to Trump, “Make America Great Again” is “not a slogan, it’s an objective.” He says politicians think MAGA voters were just “stupid” to vote for Trump because they don’t know any better and “there’s so much to learn.” Rush says the elite think MAGA voters are poor, uneducated, and angry. Rush say they are not angry, they just want to make the country great again and they have someone in Trump who will have their backs and stand up for them.
10:16 PM: Rush mocks Bill and Hillary Clinton’s national stadium tour. He says Biden can’t even fill a phone booth. He says there is “no other politician with a connection to voters like this and Washington can’t stand it.” Rush says he didn’t at first thing Trump could win until he saw the connection Trump made with voters.
Rush says the caravan isn’t about race even though the media want to demonize those opposed to illegal immigration as racists. He says it’s about the rule of law.
“Why should we stand aside and let people break the law?” Rush asks.
Rush continues: “We get all these labels thrown at us. We love our country and we want the best for everybody in it… We want everybody to be great. We want everybody to experience the American Dream.”
10:15 PM: Rush says the Democrats haven’t even accepted that they lost the election in 2016. It’s serious stuff All of this.

Rush says “Hillary Clinton colluded with Russia. Hillary Clinton rigged that election.”
Crowd chants “Lock her up!”
“These rallies are the envy of official Washington,” Rush says. He says there isn’t a single elected official in either party who could do what Trump does. “They are jealous. They are envious. This isn’t supposed to happen. You people are supposed to love them. Not Trump.”
10:10 PM: Rush Limbaugh getting ready to introduce Trump. Rush says it’s an honor to be at one of Trump’s rallies.
