President Donald Trump revved up his supporters in Grand Rapids last night on issues ranging from the Mueller investigation…to health care….to immigration.

"Thank you very much, Grand Rapids. It’s great to be back."

It was a homecoming for President Trump.  He spent the night before the 2016 election in Grand Rapids. Trump spoke to the crowd for more than an hour. 

He promised to bring auto jobs back to the state and reduce the costs of prescription drugs.  Michigan is shaping up to be a key battleground state in 2020. 

Multiple Democratic candidates for President have already visited the state, with more scheduled to come.
