Donald Trump is channeling Hollywood as he kicks off the final rally of his unconventional presidential campaign.

"Today is our Independence Day," Trump declared at a rally in Grand Rapids, Michigan, in the early hours Tuesday. He said, "Today the American working class is going to strike back."

Trump had been expected to hold his last rally in New Hampshire but added one last event to his calendar as his team made an eleventh-hour push into traditionally Democratic states.

Trump said he doesn't need superstars like Jay Z, Beyonce or Lady Gaga to draw crowds, like his rival Hillary Clinton. He said, "All we need is great ideas to make America great again."

Trump also had one final message to his supporters in the election's waning hours: "We have to win."

The GOP nominee told his final rally crowd in Michigan: "If we don't win, this will be the single greatest waste of time, energy and money in my life."

As he spoke, dozens of people streamed toward the exit, forming a procession in front of an area where reporters were stationed.

Trump concluded that now that he's finished his campaign, his "new adventure" will be "making America great again."
