President Donald Trump says he hopes a supporter will be fine after a medical incident at his last rally ahead of Tuesday's midterm elections.

Trump paused for about five minutes after being alerted to a medical emergency in a crowd of thousands.

As emergency workers went to the woman, Trump said, "Take your time, take your time, relax." After a few minutes, the audience broke into the anthem "Amazing Grace".

He resumed his speech after the supporter was taken out of the arena and said to the song, "That was beautiful."

He adds, "I hope she's fine."

Medical emergencies are common in presidential campaigns where security requires participants to spend hours on the job.

President Donald Trump holds his last rally of the intermediate election campaign in 2018.

Trump arrived Monday night in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, his third rally of the day and eleventh in his final spurt before election day.

He is in Mississippi River City to recruit the Republican Attorney General of Missouri, Josh Hawley, who challenges Democratic incumbent Sen. Claire McCaskill.

First, however, he appeared with some of his favorite conservative commentators, radio stations and Rush Limbaugh from Cape Girardeau, and Fox News presenters Sean Hannity and Jeanine Pirro.

The outcome of the midterm elections has become a referendum on Trump's presidency and is likely to change course.

President Donald Trump introduces a trio of women working for his administration at one of his recent rallies.

Trump's daughter and senior adviser Ivanka Trump appeared on Monday next to the president in Fort Wayne, Indiana for the second time that day. Trump invited White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders and counselor Kellyanne Conway to speak as well.

Sanders opened her remarks with a dig in the media and joked that she was not used to dealing with friendly people.

It is expected that women will play a key role in Tuesday's midterm elections and determine which party controls Congress.

In the latest NPR / PBS News Hour / Marist poll, 49 percent of women disapproved of Trump's performance, compared to 44 percent of men.

President Donald Trump was repeatedly interrupted by demonstrators during his rally in Indiana on his last mid-term sprint.

On Monday, protesters began to sing against Trump three times before being drowned by Trump fans in a downtown Fort Wayne Coliseum.

The demonstrators were accompanied. Trump told a demonstrator to "go home to mom".

At the Trump election campaign in 2016, demonstrators were a common sight. Occasionally there were violent riots between demonstrators and Trump supporters.

They have become much rarer since Trump's inauguration, as the president noted on Monday.

He sadly said he was "not surprised" that they would play a role in Indiana, but it was not clear what he meant.

President Donald Trump makes a final electoral argument, claiming that Democrats "are creating a wreck ball for our economy and the future of our country."

Trump was the second of his last three rally stops on Monday in front of a loud, crowded crowd in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

He says, "A vote for the Republicans is a vote to continue our extraordinary prosperity." He says, "A vote for Democrats is a vote to bring this economic recovery to a halt very quickly."

The president further stated that a democratic victory would create "a socialist nightmare".

Trump was in Indiana to assist the Republican Senate candidate Mike Brown, who challenges Democratic incumbent Sen. Joe Donnelly.

President Donald Trump wrote an election night on the Fox News website.

The article on the president's favorite news channel website encourages voters to keep Republicans in power to keep the economy growing.

Trump writes, "America is facing a critical decision" in Tuesday's midterm elections, claiming that if the Democrats gained control of Congress, they would "bring a huge blow to their economy and their future."

The message was part of the President's closing argument, but was overshadowed by his focus on hard immigration issues in the final days of the campaign.

Some Republicans fear that Trump's decision not to focus on the economy was detrimental, especially among suburban women who could control the house.

President Donald Trump urges Republicans to opt for the midterm elections to maintain his "political movement."

Trump has repeatedly fought Republican-Democrat disputes in Cleveland on Monday, saying that the opposition party calls for "open borders" and "rising" crime.

He also referred to the final days of the 2016 campaign and compared his disgruntled victory to the Republicans, who now opposed the polls and possibly retained both houses of Congress.

Most polls indicate that the GOP will retain control of the Senate but lose the house.

In Ohio, Trump has seen some of his biggest hits in the campaign, including a blow to campaign hero Hillary Clinton in 2016.

Trump is scheduled to hold rallies later this Monday in Indiana and Missouri.

The first daughter, Ivanka Trump, accompanies her father during his last election campaign before the elections.

Ivanka Trump, who is also a seasoned White House advisor, rarely makes campaign appearances, but she traveled with President Donald Trump to his Cleveland rally on Monday.

The president seemed to make fun of the #Metoo movement by introducing his daughter and saying, "You can not use the word" beautiful "when talking about women, which is politically wrong."

Trump swore never to use that word again. His daughter then promoted the White House's economic policies and its strong employment record.

President Donald Trump begins his last campaign before the midterm elections by declaring that "everything is at stake."

Trump's first stop on Monday was in Cleveland, where he stumbled upon Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine, the Republican governor's candidate.

He defeated DeWine's Democratic opponent, Richard Cordray, whom he described as a "bad man" who "hurt many people."

The midterm elections became a referendum on Trump, urging the crowd to maintain Republican control in both the House and the Senate.

He says, "In a sense, I'm on the ticket."

In recent days, however, Trump has distanced himself from the Republicans' efforts to hold the house that most pollsters believe might appeal to the Democrats.

After Ohio Trump will travel to Indiana and Missouri.

President Donald Trump predicts post-election cabinet changes and calls such adjustments "very common" but does not provide a timetable for them.

Nevertheless, Trump Montag says that he is supported by "some really talented people" and that "I love my cabinet for the most part". The President answered the reporters' questions before boarding a flight to Ohio for the first of three Air Force One rally campaigns.

Trump replied that he was "surprised" by a question whether he wanted to replace Defense Secretary Jim Mattis.

He also said Ryan Zinke, as Secretary of the Interior, had done a "very good job" despite a series of investigations into his conduct, including a matter referred to the Ministry of Justice for further investigation.

Trump says he will review all reports of Zinc's behavior.

President Donald Trump calls on his followers to vote on Tuesday. He said the media would treat the interim results as a referendum on his presidency.

Trump tells supporters in a Tele-Town Hall, organized by his re-election campaign, that although he's not in the election, he "in a sense, I'm in the election."

He adds, "Whether we look at it or not, the press sees it as a referendum about me and us as a movement."

Trump also argues that if the Democrats gain control of Congress, they will work to turn everything back, which he has tried, and say, "It's all fragile."

Trump's son Eric Trump, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and other Republican leaders also participated in the appeal.

Trump holds three rallies in Ohio, Indiana and Missouri on Monday.

President Donald Trump arouses the fear of illegal elections on the eve of Tuesday's election – a rare practice.

Trump tweeted on Monday that "the law enforcement agency has been urged to pay close attention to illegal voting that may take place on Tuesday (or in the early voting session)." Everyone caught is subject to the maximum legal penalties allowed by law.

Trump claimed repeatedly after taking office and without evidence that 3 to 5 million people voted illegally in 2016. That's why Democrat Hillary Clinton received almost 3 million more votes than Trump nationwide.

Studies have shown that voter fraud is rare in the US. The Brennan Center for Justice found that most reported cases can be traced back to other sources, such as spelling mistakes.

The president and a former president are closing their arguments with the time before the decisive midterm elections.

President Donald Trump urged voters in Tennessee and Georgia on Sunday to support the Republicans in nationwide races, warning that Democrats favor high taxes and illegal immigration. The Democrats offered former President Barack Obama for their final argument. Obama appeared in Indiana and later in Chicago and warned Democrats against being distracted by lies and scare.

Trump seemed to distance himself from the fate of the House's Republican nominees as he devoted himself to the midterm elections on Tuesday of the last election to help the Senate and Gubernatorial candidates.
