My Deplorables — This is it. The FINAL DEBATE.
The Corrupt Clintons are doing everything they can to stop us.
They are committing voter fraud, the rigged media is ignoring the facts, and they are telling lie after lie.

AND people like Crooked Hillary Clinton will no longer get rich off the backs of the hard working Americans that built this country.
We will WIN. We will MAGA.
