43 of the most outrageous things Trump said during his chaotic five rallies in one day

43 of the most outrageous things Trump said during his chaotic five rallies in one day

In a final bid to win over voters and swing polls in his favour, Donald Trump is working overtime and hosting rally after rally after rally.

The Hill reports that the president will hold 14 rallies in the three days before Tuesday's election in battleground states such as Pennslyvania, North Carolina, Florida and Michigan.

Monday saw the president hold a mammoth five rallies in one day in an attempt to spread his message to any undecided voters.

The rallies on Sunday, which took place in Michigan, Iowa, North Carolina, Georgia and Florida had large gatherings but there was little to no evidence of face masks being worn or social distancing measures being in place.

His first stop was Macomb County, Michigan where he spoke for just over an hour and shortly began complaining about the weather not long after he had started talking. Complaining about the weather has become a recent staple of these rallies.

Trump continues to complain about the wind by lamenting windmills for killing birds.

Perhaps, the most controversial moment of the weekend was when Trump supporters in Texas surrounded Joe Biden's campaign bus on a highway. The incident is now being investigated by the FBI but Trump called their behaviour 'nice.'

Trump whips the crowd into a frenzy by calling Biden a 'corrupt politician' who has been 'bought and paid for by China.'

Trump lashes out at Democratic congresswomen Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and demands that they are investigated by the Department of Justice.

The president repeats a debunked line that Joe Biden once called young Black men 'super-predators.'

For 47 years, Joe Biden viciously attacked African Americans. We know that. He shipped away your jobs, decimated the black middle-class, and flooded your cities with foreign labor, gangs, and drugs. He opened and he openly called… And I think everyone knows this. He openly called young black men 'super predators.'

With that the president was on the move to Dubuque, Iowa and surprise, one of the first things he talked about was the weather.

In keeping with Melania Trump's anti-bullying campaign, the president mocks the shape of lawyer Adam Schiff's head.

Trump demands that he knows the results of the election on Tuesday night, rather than have the votes lawfully counted in a proper fashion.

While rambling about federal judges Trump accidentally calls Biden 'Bernie'.

Trump claims, with no evidence, that the Democrats want to "abolish religious liberty and they want to ban God from the public square."

Ivanka Trump briefly appears on stage and calls her father a 'warrior.'

This is some serious energy and a little bit of cold, but you all warm up the room. Well, I love you and we all love this man, a warrior through and through who never forgets why he’s in Washington, why he ran for President and who he’s fighting for, which is you, the American people.

Before he signs off in Iowa, Trump again claims that the Obama administration spied on his campaign, even after he had won the 2016 election.

Trump then jets down to Hickory, North Carolina and guess what? Yes, he's complaining about the weather again.

While trying to mock Biden, Trump manages to praise controversial world leaders such as Kim Jong-un and Vladimir Putin.

We got endorsed by a lot of great people, we got endorsed by great people and a lot of newspapers are endorsing us because they know that Joe Biden is not up to this job. All you have to do is watch him for about five minutes, he is not up to this job. One thing I can tell you, President Xi, Putin, Kim Jong-un, they’re very sharp, they’re very sharp, they’re all very sharp and we cannot have a leader that’s not sharp.

Unbelievably, Trump claims that Biden wants to delay the vaccine and turn America into a 'prison state.'

Joe Biden is promising to delay the vaccine and turn America into a prison state while letting rioters roam fee. They close your churches, they close your schools, but if you want to riot and burn down the stores and have the anarchists out there and do lots of it, that’s okay. You can’t stop that. You can’t go to school and you can’t go to church. It’s crazy.

A controversial moment happened around 30 minutes into this speech when Trump began reading a poem called The Snake. The poem has long been labelled as 'xenophobic' and 'anti-immigration.' Trump had previously used it at rallies but this is the first time that he has used it in the 2020 campaign.

After he was done in North Carolina, Trump spoke in Rome, Georgia and at this point, it's almost a cliche that he would talk about the weather.

Worryingly, Trump spreads more baseless conspiracy theories about mail-in ballots and suggests that "bad things can happen in places like Pennsylvania and Nevada."

Again, without evidence, Trump says that the Democrats will cancel numerous American holidays, including July 4, under a lockdown.

Trump praises Marjorie Taylor Greene, a congressional candidate and QAnon believer who has previously attempted to get two Muslim congresswomento swear an oath on the Bible as they were sworn into office on a Quran.

Trump wraps things up in Georgia after just a 45-minute speech but does find some time for some dancing.

The president's final rally of the day takes place in Opa-Locka, Florida. Mercifully, he doesn't make any comments about the weather but does convince his supporters to boo the media, prompting some to give cameras the middle finger.

Trump pleads with suburban women to 'love him' which does compel a crowd of women to chant their love for him.

Despite the coronavirus still being a very real and serious threat, Trump mocks Biden for having safety guidelines at his rallies and prompts the crowd to chant 'lock him up' after mentioning Barack Obama.

The crowd in Florida are quite lively and begins a 'Fire Dr Fauci' chant which prompts Trump to say "let me wait a little bit after the election."

Trump bizarrely begins to brag about wanting to physically fighting Joe Biden and complains if the media would have reported on what he had said.

Trump mentions the aforementioned group of his supporters who drove alongside Joe Biden's bus in Texas and complains that the media would rather talk about that than Antifa.

It appears that we spoke too soon and Trump did talk about the weather but this time he was glad that is was warm in Florida.

Trump has taken to showing memes at his rallies and shows a video comparing Joe Biden to Jim Carrey.

Trump goes back to talking about fighting Biden.

The rowdy Florida crowd begins yelling 'lock her up' when Trump mentions Ilhan Omar's name.

Trump brags about doing the complete opposite of what Obama did in office, which doesn't sound like the best thing to be bragging about.

Trump wraps things up in a truly odd way by talking to someone called 'Joan Miller from the Brooklyn Club.'

And with that Trump's five chaotic rallies in one day were in the books. We can only imagine what he'll say on election day...
