Brad Parscale, Trump's 2020 campaign manager, opened the rally on Wednesday night and was quick to slam Democrats and the impeachment process.

"It is unbelievable how much they don't care about your voice here in Michigan," Parscale said. "They want to erase your vote in 2016 and they don't even want to give you a chance in 2020."

He added, "I have a feeling they don't even know where Battle Creek, Michigan is."

When he took the stage, Trump was reflective.

"I just said to the first lady you're so lucky I took you on this fantastic journey - it's so much fun, they want to impeach you, they want to do worse than that," he said. "And by the way, it doesn't really feel like we're being impeached."Trump won Michigan in 2016 by a tiny 11,000-vote margin over Hillary Clinton.
