REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE Donald Trump has told terminally ill people to “hang on” and vote for him.

Speaking at a rally in the battleground state of Nevada, Trump said that it was important that people voted for him.

He said it was a “magnificent chance for justice” for supporters to replace the “failed, corrupt establishment”.

He told the crowd that he would repeal and replace Obamacare and show “America is back”.

He then said that voter turnout would be important, prefacing his comments:

“I say kiddingly, but I mean it. I don’t care how sick you are.

“I don’t care if you just came back from the doctor and he gave you the worst possible prognosis, meaning: it’s over – you won’t be around in two weeks.

It doesn’t matter – hang on until 8 November, get out and vote. All we’re going to say is we love you and we will remember you always.

“Get out and vote.”

Nevada is one of the states that Trump will be aiming to win for the Republicans after it was held by Barack Obama in 2012. However, its six electoral college votes are a toss-up at the moment, with both he and Hillary Clinton leading various polls.

However, a number of swing states are now leaning towards Clinton, two new polls show.

Polls released by Politico/Morning Consult and CNN/ORC show Clinton with a six-point and five-point lead, respectively.
