Donald Trump held five rallies on Monday, in key states such as Florida, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Michigan.

With him was his running mate, Mike Pence, along with Trump’s children. During his rally in New Hampshire, Trump revealed that his longtime friend, the New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, had voted for him, along with coach Bill Belichick.

“Tom Brady, great guy, great friend of mine, great, great champion,” Trump said Monday to a large crowd. “He called today and he said, ‘Donald, I support you, you’re my friend, and I voted for you.'”

“This guy is a champ and a winner and he is a great person,” Trump continued. “So I said, ‘Tom, you voted for me, you support me, am I allowed to say it tonight to this massive crowd in New Hampshire?’ He said, ‘If you want to say it, you can say it.'”


In a Monday morning interview with Kirk & Callahan, a radio show, Brady said “No, I haven’t voted yet,” adding that he would vote “today or tomorrow.”

Before Trump took the stage in New Hampshire, Pence spoke about Hillary Clinton and Benghazi, when a man yelled out from the crowd, “Assassinate that b—-!”

It was just the beginning of the rhetoric that has become common throughout Trump’s campaign. The Republican presidential nominee assailed the “crooked media,” attacked the “corrupt Washington establishment” and mocked his opponent at every rally.

“It’s a rigged, rigged system,” he declared in Raleigh, North Carolina. “And now it’s up to the American people to deliver the justice that we deserve at the ballot box tomorrow.”

He continued to assure his supporters that a Trump presidency would “suspend the Syrian refugee program and… keep the Islamic terrorists the hell out of our country.”

“A Trump administration will also secure the borders of our country and, yes, we will build a great, great wall,” he said in New Hampshire.

“Real change comes from restoring honesty to government,” he continued. “Let’s start by getting rid of Hillary Clinton.”

While the total crowd count of his New Hampshire rally was not immediately available from the campaign, a pool report from press traveling with the Trump campaign noted that the arena website lists just over 11,000 as the capacity.

The pooler observed that, while it was a large crowd, there were empty seats in the upper levels as well as areas in the floor that were not quite full.

Trump also addressed the seeming lack of star power at his rallies, mentioning Beyoncé and Jay Z with a dismissive “I like them,” then adding “I get bigger crowds than they do.”

“Is there any place better to be than a Trump rally?” he asked in North Carolina. “We’re having fun. And I don’t have a guitar, and I don’t have a piano.”
