Eric Trump made a stop at the Hotel Anthracite in Carbondale on Sunday morning for a rally ahead of Tuesday’s election.

The event drew a crowd of around 200 people.

Trump railed against the DC swamp and specifically, his father’s opponent on Tuesday, former Vice President Joe Biden.

He used a metaphor to explain why Biden’s 47 years of DC swamp experience is enough. And that 4 more years of Biden in DC, specifically the White House, is a bad idea for America.

“You leave your car at an auto repair place for 47 years. You go back to pick up your car, and the mechanic tells you, ‘You know what? We need your car for four more years! But, I promise you it’s going to be perfect.’ Would you believe that?” Trump told the crowd. “Of course you’re not going to believe that person!”

Trump also recognized the Mayor of Carbondale, Justin Taylor for endorsing President Donald Trump.

“I read an article the other day, it was really nice. That a Democratic mayor came out and endorsed Trump. So, I brought him something today. I brought him a hat signed by the President of the United States,” Trump told the crowd.

“Why does this President, who the media has spent a year and a half telling you that he is an absolute racist, that he believes in white supremacy, why is he doing so well with the African American vote?” well known American banker and politician, T.W. Shannon asked the crowd.

“Because the Democrats put the D in dependancy. They have told us, people that look like me, for 150 years that we are absolutely dependent on government and that we are less than Americans,” he continued on. “And, Donald Trump said no,” Shannon added. “What you need is a good paying job.”
