AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump says he’s going to win in Maine, not just the 2nd Congressional District.
Trump opened his remarks in his fifth visit to Maine this year by drawing attention to an FBI statement that it’s investigating whether there was classified information on new emails from Democrat Hillary Clinton. He also talked about trade deals that he says have hurt manufacturing jobs in Maine.
Trump visited Lisbon on Friday in Maine’s 2nd Congressional District, where Trump is focusing his efforts in hopes of winning at least one of the state’s four electoral votes.
Maine is one of two states that split their electoral votes.
But Trump said he’s going to “win in Maine,” suggesting he’s going to win the entire state and all four electoral votes.
Earlier in the day, Trump was in Manchester, New Hampshire. The Republican nominee said Friday that “perhaps finally justice will be served.” He was addressing a roaring crowd in Manchester, New Hampshire, shortly after news broke of the FBI decision.
Trump said that “Clinton’s corruption is on a scale we have never seen before” and said that “we must not let her take her criminal scheme into the Oval Office.”
Trump said he had “great respect” for the FBI’s decision. He had previously been very critical of the FBI and Department of Justice for the earlier decision not to bring charges against the Democratic nominee.
