HIGHLIGHTS

► President Trump says his plans for Election Night aren’t yet settled, saying “we have a hotel” but that the DC mayor has “shut down” the city and imposed certain regulations on groups. “It that’s the case, we’ll probably stay here.”

► President Trump predicts he would do well in Texas, Florida, Ohio, and Pennsylvania and predicted he would flip Minnesota. 

► President Trump  confirmes he met with Lil Wayne, said Lil Wayne asked for the meeting and called him a nice guy.

► President Trump complains about the cap on crowds in Minnesota, which is forcing him to let only 250 people into his rally.

President Trump praised yesterday’s GDP number and predicted that economic growth would continue “if you don’t raise taxes like Biden wants to do … If we don’t do that we’re going to have the best year we’ve ever had economically next year. We’re superseding all other countries.” “I think we had one of our biggest days ever, it wasn’t reported like it should have been.”

He said the country was “making the turn” on the pandemic, saying that “people that are seriously ill are getting better.” “We have great medicines. I would call them a cure, but other people call them therapeutics.”

He then returned to the economy, saying he was “really celebrating” the GDP number and that “the economy is going to be very shortly at a level at which I don’t think it ever was.”

“I can’t express more strongly, an increase of 33.1 — you have to go back to 1952, you have to go back to 1961 … It’s a great day yesterday and now today we’re really celebrating this because nobody thought it was possible. … It really shows that our policies work. If you had a president with different ideas, instead of having a 33.1 gain you’d have a disaster on your hands.”

Trump on Election Night: We haven’t made a determination.” He said there are “certain rules and regulations” in DC. “We have a hotel,” he said, but the mayor has “shut down Washington DC.” “If that’s the case, we’ll probably stay here or some other location.” “I think it’s crazy — Washington DC is shut down. Can you imagine?

On his chances in Texas: “I think we’re going to do very well. … Texas is looking very strong. … Florida is looking great. … Ohio is looking great. North Carolina is looking fantastic, actually. We think Pennsylvania’s looking fantastic but that’s a late vote.” He brought up Biden’s fracking comments. “If Pennsylvania didn’t flack, you wouldn’t have Pennsylvania. believe me.”

On his meeting with Lil Wayne: “He wanted a meeting. He’s a really nice guy. Really an activist in a very positive way. … As you saw the meeting went very well.”

On where he’ll go on Election Day: “I don’t know.” He said he would give that answer in the next few days. He brought up Minnesota’s cap on crowds. “We’ve got the biggest crowds in the history of politics. … We have 25,000 people in Minnesota, which is our last stop today. 25,000 people want to be there and they say you can only have 250 people. They thought I’d cancel. I’m not canceling, and we’ll find out what happens.” He said he stopped the riots in Minnesota. “They’re angry at Omar …I think it’s going to flip for the first time since 1972.”

On stimulus: “We will have a tremendous stimulus package immediately after the election.” He said the GOP would take back the House, do “very well” in the Senate — “it’s a little bit more complex, frankly” — and do well in the presidential. "Nobody has done what we've done, even close. I think we're going to have a great election. People are going to realize that. That's why you have a big turnout. That's why you have big crowds."
