Lisa Gustin has been to five Trump events, including one in Toledo-Ohio. This time she brought her 14-year-old son, Gabriel.

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump made his fifth visit to Michigan yesterday. The candidate held a rally in the Oakland County city of Novi.

“I’m an outsider fighting for you,” Trump told the crowd. “We have a movement like they’ve never seen in this country before.”

Michigan continues to appear key in Trump’s plans to win the White House. A statewide poll done after Monday’s debate shows Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton with a seven-point lead in Michigan.

Trump took aim at trade deals and said he has a plan that would bring automotive jobs back to Michigan.  

“We’re gonna rebuild Detroit. It’s time to rebuild Michigan and we’re not letting them take your jobs out of Michigan any longer,” he said.

Earlier in the day, Trump made a surprise stop at the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum in Grand Rapids. He laid flowers at the grave of the 38th president.
