You have to get rid of Trump, so Geraldo hes going to Michigan.

Major its a situation where the midwest, the rust belt, which used to be firm hi in the democratic camp, was revealed in twenty. Sixteen by President Trump to be in play Michigan one of the key states. You know Hillary Clinton ignored the rust belt. She ignored the midwest and it cost her dearly im here in Ohio, which was a swing state. The president is beginning to tuck up now, hes a couple of pointses held in most surveys. I see itll be Michigan, Ohio, Wisconsin Pennsylvania. Those will be the key determinants if Trump does as well in the Midwest as he did in two thousand and sixteen.
