WARREN, Michigan — Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump vowed before a packed audience of roughly 2,000 in a high school gymnasium on Monday afternoon: “In eight days, we are going to win the state of Michigan.” The boisterous crowd was the second Trump had addressed in the state, having earlier spoken to a large rally in Grand Rapids. They waited for two hours until he arrived, and there was a large overflow crowd outside the venue, impressing members of the traveling press pool. In front of large hand-painted “VOTE TRUMP and “AMERICA FIRST” signs, Trump vowed to “repeal and replace” Obamacare, which he noted had led to double-digit premium increases in health insurance premiums in the state. As he does at every rally, Trump ripped the media. He challenged the journalists in the room to ask Hillary Clinton why she did not speak up when CNN contributor (and later Democratic National Committee chair) Donna Brazile passed her debate questions from the network on multiple occasions. “We do want the answer to that question, media. Ask her!” He noted that CNN had fired Brazile, and asked: “If they fired Donna Brazile, why aren’t they firing Hillary Clinton?” Trump was briefly interrupted
