Trump and family barnstorm in North Carolina

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and his family spent Friday campaigning across the Tar Heel State.

GASTONIA, N.C. -- From Gaston County to Fletcher just outside Asheville, Donald Trump and members of his family campaigned hard Friday hoping to pull off a much-needed win in North Carolina.

Sounding at times, subdued, Donald Trump told supporters in Fletcher that win, lose or draw, he would be happy with himself on election night.

Trump reverted to many of the themes from the earlier days on the campaign trail. Themes like immigration reform.

"We are going to build a wall and Mexico will pay for the wall," he promised, using a line that still gets cheers from the audience.

He promised big tax cuts and said the Supreme Court will be the most important issue facing the next President.

"We are going to appoint justices to the United States Supreme Court who will uphold and defend the constitution of the United States.

Meanwhile, in Gastonia, Trump's son Eric fired up a crowd at the GOP party headquarters.

"Guys, who is going to win this thing?"

The crowd of volunteers and supporters shouted back, "Trump!"

Donald Trump has been criticized recently for his claims that the election is being rigged against him.

To that claim, Eric Trump said, "Certainly you have the mainstream media that is one-directional and everybody sees that, and so, one can clearly tell you have the entire mainstream media on her team.

Asked if his father might not accept the results of the election, Eric Trump said his father would accept the results, "assuming that it's fair. That's what he's said. He's said all I want is a fair election."

Hillary Clinton will be in Charlotte Sunday for a campaign stop at UNC-Charlotte.
