The Latest: Trump touts economy despite market turmoil

By The Associated Press

MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — The Latest on President Donald Trump's campaign rally in New Hampshire (all times local):

8:05 p.m.

President Donald Trump is telling supporters that even if they don't like him, they have to vote for him because their retirements depend on it.

Speaking at a rally for his reelection campaign in Manchester, New Hampshire, Trump is downplaying recent stock market turmoil and fears of an economic recession, highlighting other positive economic indicators.

Trump rose to the White House promising to bring about a historic economic boom, and faced with a potential slowdown is warning that if he loses in 2020, Americans' 401(k) retirement accounts will go "down the tubes."

He says, "Whether you love me or hate me, you have to vote for me."

6:35 p.m.

President Donald Trump has returned to the state that gave him his first presidential primary victory, looking to once again demonstrate his popularity with New Hampshire's Republican voters.

Trump is holding a campaign rally Thursday night at Southern New Hampshire University while spending the week at his New Jersey golf club.

Trump's polling numbers in New Hampshire would indicate that the president will have an uphill climb winning the state in 2020. He lost to Democrat Hillary Clinton by about 2,700 votes in 2016, and the state has shown over the years that it's no pushover for either party.

New Hampshire's four Electoral College votes are far below those of key swing states like Florida, Wisconsin and Michigan, but its influence can prove powerful in close election years.

12:05 a.m.

President Donald Trump is hoping to woo New Hampshire, which backed Hillary Clinton in 2016, into his column heading into 2020.

The president will visit the state on Thursday to hold a reelection rally.

New Hampshire is doing well economically, at least when using broad measures. But beneath the top-line data are clear signs that the prosperity is being unevenly shared, and when the tumult of the Trump presidency is added to the mix, the state's flinty voters may not be receptive to his appeals.

An August University of New Hampshire Survey Center poll found that 42% of New Hampshire adults approve of Trump while 53% disapprove. The poll also showed that 49% approve of Trump's handling of the economy and 44% disapprove.
