"It's in play now," Trump continued, going after Clinton during a critique of policies he argued hurt U.S. workers.

"I think she's wasting her time," Trump, the Republican presidential nominee, said.

"I think, rather than going to Michigan, she ought to go home and relax," he said.

A Republican presidential candidate has not won Michigan since 1988, and polls have shown Hillary Clinton with a consistent lead there, though some recent polling has indicated a tightened race.

Clinton has sought to shore up support among black voters in several battleground states amid a tightening in polls. Still, reports have indicated a rise in early voting among Hispanics, a potential bright spot for Democrats.

"We are doing very well with the African-American community, and we are doing very well with the Hispanic community," Trump claimed Saturday night in Colorado, a state with a significant Hispanic population.
