Donald Trump has reacted furiously to the FBI dropping its probe into his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton, with a familiar argument, that the elections are fixed against him.
Reversing his previous praise of the bureau when they began a review of new emails, he questioned its ability to review the evidence.
“Right now, she’s being protected by a rigged system. You can’t review 650,000 e-mails in eight days, you can’t do it. Hillary Clinton is guilty. She knows it. The FBI knows it. The people, the people know it. And now it’s up to the American people to deliver justice at the ballot,” he told supporters in Pennsylvania.
Trump insisted that the FBI would continue to investigate Clinton, saying she wasn’t fit to be president. A view shared by many at the media mogul’s rally in Virginia.
“I think that we really need a change and I want a businessman who knows how to do something. Who knows how to manage the country. Who knows how to make something, instead of someone who just wants to take from you and give to other people. I think he is honest. I believe that he’s got the pulse of the people,” said one supporter.
As the campaign heads into its final day, it’s an open question whether Hillary’s eleventh hour reprieve will translate into support at the ballot box.
