Trump rallies supporters in Louisiana

U.S. President Donald Trump made his final appeal to Louisiana voters on Thursday (November 14), urging them to vote the Democratic governor out of office this weekend.

TRUMP, SAYING: "If you want to defend your values your jobs and your freedom then you need to replace radical liberal John Bel Edwards with a true Louisiana patriot Eddie Rispone." Trump told a stadium filled with supporters that the "eyes of history" were looking down on them.

TRUMP, SAYING: "In two days, I really need you, but you really need you to send a message to the corrupt Democrats in Washington - they are corrupt, they are crazy, crazy, crazy - that you're not going to let them destroy our country and rob your children of their future.

You have to let them know it." Trump's rally comes a day after the U.S. House of Representatives held its first public hearings in the ongoing impeachment inquiry.

The president took the opportunity to push back against allegations that he abused his office.

TRUMP, SAYING: "But once again their lies will be exposed just like they were the last times.

About when they asked these two never trumpers what exactly you think you impeach him for?

And they stood there and went like, what?

But they're unraveling and their sinister plans will fail.

They've already failed as far as I'm concerned." Recent opinion polls predict a tight race in Louisiana, although Democrat John Bel Edwards holds a slight lead.
