Hillary Clinton and Donald trump have made their final pitch as a US presidential candidate. On the last day of the campaign Clinton seemed to be a clear but not favorite among the people.
She held a small lead in national polls and in key battleground states. Clinton talked about bringing the country together after the election was over.
She said, “We’ve got to heal our country, or, as the Bible says, ‘repair the breach,’ because we have so much divisiveness right now, we’ve got to start listening to each other, respecting each other.”
Trump, on the other hand, gave dark warnings about what would it mean if he didn’t win. He said the country was going downward, hampered by favor trading political elite and mismanaged economy.
He said, “If we don’t win, I will consider this the single greatest waste of time, energy . . . and money, If we don’t win, honestly, we’ve all wasted our time.”
Trump was scheduled to make stops in five states, while Clinton made two stops in Pennsylvania and a stop in Michigan.
President Obama also made four stops – events that ended a chapter in his political career. Obama in his last Campaign appearances as president helped Clinton win the office he’d denied her eight years before. “I am asking you to trust me on this one,” Obama said at a stop in Ann Arbor, Mich.
Later in the day, in the college town of Durham, New Hampshire, he told thousands of supporters, “It’s not often you have a chance to shape history. The world is watching us,” “This is one of those moments,” Obama added. “Don’t let it slip away.”
