Donald Trump made his final campaign stop at the DeVos Place Convention Center in Grand Rapids.

Thousands of people were there to welcome him back to Michigan.

The same day voters will cast their ballots.

Nine And Ten’s Veronica Meadows was right in the middle of the action at his final rally.

"Donald Trump wrapped up his campaign to a packed house at the DeVos Place Convention Center in Grand Rapids where a sea of loyal supporters stayed up until the early hours to show Trump their support before they head to the polls."

"So it’s now officially Tuesday November 8. Did you ever think you would be hearing a major speech close to 1 in the morning," Donald Trump said.

Thousands of Michigan voters waited until well after the clock struck midnight. All to hear Donald Trump take the stage one last time. Introduced first by running mate Governor Mike Pence.

"He’s a fighter, a winner until very recently it seemed like he was fighting out there all alone and now this movement is coming together. Michigan is coming together to make Trump the next president," Pence said.

The energy was electrifying.

As Trump pushed for issues like supporting police, cracking down on illegal immigration and bringing more jobs to America.

"After we win I’m going to be coming back to Michigan a lot. I’m going to be coming back every time we open a new factory or a new plant and we will do it we will do a lot of expansion," he said.

Those issues hitting close to home for people in the crowd.

"The immigration really is what stands out for me, because we have a lot of illegals coming over and taking our jobs and all our jobs are leaving and going to other counties so that’s what really stood out to me," Alec Duzan said.

Thousands of people put aside a good nights sleep, work, and studying all to see Trump’s final push for the White House.

"Together we will make America wealthy again, we will make America strong again, we will make America safe again and we will make America great again," Trump said.
