President Donald Trump says voters must decide whether they want a booming America or want to allow the Democratic leadership in Congress and Missouri Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill to "wipe it all away."

He said America is thriving under Republican leadership because the GOP is putting America first.

Trump spoke Thursday night in Columbia, Missouri, in his second rally in an 11-stop, eight-state tour designed to coax Republican voters to the polls.

Trump is supporting Republican Senate candidate Josh Hawley, who is seeking to unseat McCaskill in a state Trump won by nearly 19 percentage points. Their Senate contest is one of the tightest in the nation.

At a rally on an airport tarmac, supporters waved red signs that said "Finish the Wall" and "Make America Strong Again."
