He may be down in the polls but Donald Trump has told supporters that the US election will be like ‘Brexit times five’‘
Speaking at a rally in Pennsylvania, the Republican nominee said November’s result, as with Britain’s vote to leave the EU, would defy predictions.
He also repeated his claim the vote was rigged.
“This is the last time we are going to have a chance to win. This is it, folks. This is it.Such a great job, we have to get everybody together. We have to get out and vote. We’re going to have…believe me, this is Brexit times five. You watch what’s going to happen,” Trump said.
Clinton has accused Trump of threatening democracy for his refusal to say whether he would accept the outcome of the election if he loses.
On Friday, she was back on the campaign trail in Cleveland, in the key battleground state of Ohio.
“So, I want to say something to people who maybe reconsidering their support for my opponent. I know you may still have questions for me. I respect that. I want to answer them. I want to earn your vote. I am reaching out to all Americans, Democrats, Republicans, Independents. I think America needs every single one of us to bring our energy, our talents, our ambition to build that better country.
But Trump’s argument that the system is rigged against him appears to be resonating with some voters.
According to Reuters/Ipsos poll the Republican gained ground on Clinton this week, cutting her lead nearly in half.
