Trump makes stop in Cedar Rapids hours after Clinton

Posted: Updated:

Presidential candidate Donald Trump made what could be his last Iowa stop before the election in Cedar Rapids, Friday night.

The candidate was nearly two hours late having two campaign stops earlier in the day in New Hampshire and Maine.

But the large crowd waited it out, eager to hear Trump speak.

Getting right to business once he did take the stage, Trump praised the FBI for reopening the investigation into Hillary Clinton's private emails and calling the controversy, "the biggest political scandal since Watergate."

Trump then moved on, focusing on his goals for the first 100 days of office, should he be elected. Trump listed getting rid of Obamacare and Common Core, as well as upholding the 2nd Amendment, and appointing U.S. Supreme Court Justices.

Also emphasized at this rally, the importance of early voting. Trump highlighted the influence first-time voters will have on the election's results.

KWWL spoke to some of the Trump supporters in attendance. Among the crowd were many women who are voting for Trump despite recent allegations made by women claiming Trump sexually assaulted them.

 "These ladies that are accusing him, I think they are being paid by the other side. Also, they have had all these years to complain about him or bring up lawsuits against him. If they really had a complaint, they should have done it then. If they are having a hard time over it, they better find the Christian way," said Trump supporter Rose Kendall.

Others said Trumps comments were in the past and they were looking to the future.

As of Thursday, Trump and Clinton were tied in Iowa.
