Trump says he's fine by himself; Clinton hangs with Beyoncé

Before the concert, a Clinton aide had told CNN, "what Jay Z says it up to Jay Z". "He can not be our president".

Recording artist Jay Z is seen on a screen as he performs during a Get Out The Vote concert Democratic presidential nominee former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton at Wolstein Center on November 4, 2016 in Cleveland, Ohio. I've never said he he's said in my life. And the campaign selected a heavily African-American part of North Carolina for where Clinton and Michelle Obama would make their joint debut on the campaign trail last week, timed to coincide with the expansion of the number of early voting sites.

The Democratic presidential nominee wrapped up a day of campaign stops at a packed, star-studded concert in Cleveland.

"Eight years ago, I was so inspired to know that my nephew, a young, black child, could grow up knowing his dreams could be realized by witnessing a black president in office", she said.

"He has spent this entire campaign offering a dog whistle to his most hateful supporters", Clinton said, singling out Trump's endorsement from the official newspaper of the Ku Klux Klan and noting he has retweeted messages from white supremacists.

"I suppose I could have stayed home and baked cookies and had teas, but what I made a decision to do was to fulfill my profession", Clinton's quote read on the giant screen.

With days until the election, Clinton holds a narrow lead in national polls, but Republican Donald Trump, who is also returning to Ohio Friday, appears to hold a narrow margin in Ohio.

'Once you divide us, you weaken us'. That's why tonight she'll be in Philly for a concert with Katy Perry.

Beyonce has always been a Clinton supporter.

"And with your help, a glass ceiling to crack once and for all", she said. But you know, the language last night! "Just me. No guitar, no piano, no nothing". Tickets to the concert were free, and one of the distribution sites was across the street from the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections.

Chatter about Beyonce performing emerged as the event got closer.

"We have to think about the future of our daughters, our sons and vote for someone who cares for them as much as we do", she said. "If you are ready for freedom, make some noise".
