"Seventeen days from now we're going to win the state of Michigan" and four more years in the @WhiteHouse, says @POTUS at start of his outdoor airport rally in @MuskegonCounty. #Election2020
"You got to get your governor to open up your state...and get your schools open," @POTUS tells the cheering crowd.

"Lock her up," chants the crowd referring to @GovWhitmer.

"Lock 'em all up," responds @realDonaldTrump.
In @MuskegonCounty, which has a population of just under 175,000, more than 1,700 people have tested positive for the #coronavirus and case numbers are steadily increasing, according to the county's public health department.
An impression by @realDonaldTrump of @JoeBiden taking out his notes.
"Nobody told me there'd be 40 mile per hour winds today," says @POTUS. "Get me a hat."
"I signed a bill that gives you 10 years in jail" for destroying statues, says @POTUS. (It was an executive order.)…
With the #Michigan wind continuing to blow, @POTUS puts on a hat.
"We hope she's doing well but I guess she's in seclusion," @POTUS says of @KamalaHarris, concerning #COVID19 positive cases around the campaign. (She is to return to the campaign trail Monday.)
All our rallies "are peaceful protests. Now we have no legal problem," says @POTUS about his large political gatherings during the #coronavirus pandemic.
"Do you want to vote for the candidate supported by anti-American rioters?" @realDonaldTrump asks the crowd.
"The fake news keeps saying suburban women don't like me," says @POTUS.
"We're winning," @realDonaldTrump tells #Michigan supporters. (According to @RealClearNews #Election2020 polls' average, @JoeBiden is up 7.2 points in the state)…
"You are a handsome devil," @POTUS tells @TedNugent.
"If you vote for me, prosperity will surge. Normal life will resume," promises @realDonaldTrump. #Election2020
"I guess she was threatened. And she blamed me!" @POTUS says of @GovWhitmer.

"Our FBI has to start looking at Antifa and some people like they're not looking at that they should be."
"She'd go out and badmouth me" says @POTUS of @GovWhitmer, contending she told him #Michigan was satisfied with the federal government's support during the #COVID19 pandemic. "It's so dishonest."
Increasing the number, @POTUS says "50,000 ballots" were found in a river. (There's no evidence of this.) #Election2020
The "absentee ballots in a river" tale apparently stems from this incident:…
"Every one wanted to touch a different part of my body," says @POTUS of the "17" doctors who surrounded him when he was treated for #COVID19 when he was hospitalized at @WRBethesda.
"He's a criminal. He's committing crimes," says @realDonaldTrump of @JoeBiden at #Michigan rally.
A response from @GovWhitmer while @POTUS is still on stage in her state:
"One of the most dishonest groups of people I've ever seen in my life," says @POTUS of @CNN. "Their ratings suck."
One of the biggest threats to #Michigan is the @JoeBiden plan to flood the state with refugees from terrorist hot spots, claims @realDonaldTrump. "It's in the manifesto he agreed to with Bernie Sanders. ... He will turn Michigan into a refugee state."
"Damn it, Minnesota, you better vote for me," says @POTUS after mentioning @IlhanMN.
When the #borderwall is finished soon, "we are going to have a great big beautiful celebration," promises @POTUS.
The US military's hypersonic "super-dupers...go 5 to 7 times faster than the fastest missiles in the world," according to @POTUS.
"I better damn well be president" on January 1st. "I will be. I will be...for 20 more days," says @realDonaldTrump.
"Thank you Michigan. Go out and vote," concludes @POTUS after 90 minutes on stage at @MuskegonCounty Airport. #Election2020

"We won Macon Georgia. We're going to win it again," begins @realDonaldTrump. "We're running against perhaps the worst candidate in the history of presidential politics."
"Crowd looks smaller than Ocala," reports print pooler @robcrilly. "Probably still a good couple of thousand in attendance (very rough estimate). There are a few people at the back wearing masks, but crowd is largely maskless."
"The Biden family is a criminal enterprise," remarks @realDonaldTrump for the third time today.

Motorcade of @POTUS has arrived at the Caloosa Sound Convention Center and Amphitheater, reports radio pooler @tamarakeithNPR, who notes "the route was lined with A LOT supporters with flags and signs. Some of the signs were home made." #Election2020 #Florida
"There was one guy vigorously waving a Biden campaign sign and two men with Biden flags. But this is an overwhelmingly pro-Trump showing. There are people packed together near the convention center, some with giant Trump heads," adds @tamarakeithNPR.
A look at the crowd inside for the seniors event, awaiting @POTUS.

On @NBCNews 'town hall' program, @POTUS says "I had a little bit of a temperature" during his bout with the #coronavirus and "the lungs were perhaps a little bit infected."
"After the debate...a day or so, I tested positive," says @POTUS, declining to answer @SavannahGuthrie question on whether he took a #COVID19 test on the day of the debate.
"Possibly I did. Possibly I didn't," adds @POTUS. "I was in great shape for the debate."
