Speaking at a rally in North Carolina on the first day of early in-person voting, President Donald Trump predicted a “big, beautiful red wave” on Election Night, ignoring the multiple national polls that show him trailing to rival Joe Biden. (Oct. 15)
DONALD TRUMP: Thank you, Mi-- no, I hear, it was on the-- it was broadcast today, the numbers are crazy. You know what it's called? And this is what we're going to have. We're going to have a red wave.
They don't want to send in the ballots and have the ballots thrown away into a dumpster. Who are you for, Trump? Get rid of that one. Get rid-- this is the craziest thing. They want to vote, our people want to go and they want to vote. It's going to be a big, beautiful red wave.
And let them put in their deal, and we'll check in every one of them. We're watching very closely where they came from, where they went, how did they get there, right, all this stuff that's going on. Not a day goes by when you don't read about what crooked things are happening.
But the red wave will crush it. And those are people that are going to get there on November 3, and previous to that, you know, the open voting, when you can vote. But they're going to get there. And people are talking about it already. And you're seeing that, aren't you, huh? You're seeing that. That's great, Michael. That's great. Going to be a lot of fun.
So again, this is the most important election of our lives, maybe in the history of our country. So get your friends, get your family, get your neighbors, get out and vote. The red wave is coming. The red wave is coming. And remember, early voting starts, guess when? Today. So go down there.
