Donald Trump promised a win in Florida at a rally Saturday morning, vowing to “drain the swamp” of Washington and bring back manufacturing jobs while lashing out at Hillary Clinton over her use of emails.

“We don’t need Jay Z to fill up arenas,” Trump said, referring to the hip hop star’s appearance with Clinton Friday night in Cleveland, part of her blitz through key states with celebrities and high-profile politicians.

“We do it the old-fashioned way. We fill it up because you love what we’re saying and you want to make America great again,” Trump said.

“It is time for change, it is time for new leadership,” Trump declared. “Hillary Clinton is the candidate of yesterday. We are the movement of the future. And they’ve ever seen a movement like this. … and we have to close it out on Nov. 8 or sooner.”

He appeared before a crowd of several thousand, though the rally was put together with short notice. Trump accused the “lying, thieving media” of downplaying the size of his audiences and his standing in key states.
