Republican presidential nominee Donald TrumpDonald TrumpRobert Gates says 'extreme polarization' is the greatest threat to US democracy Cassidy says he won't vote for Trump if he runs in 2024 Schiff says holding Bannon in criminal contempt 'a way of getting people's attention' MORE on Monday urged the crowd gathered at his rally to both vote and "watch" when the general election comes around.
"You've got to get every one of your friends. You've got to get every one of your family. You've got to get everybody to go out and watch. And go out and vote," Trump said at the end of a rally Monday in Akron, Ohio.
"And when I say watch, you know what I'm talking about, right? You know what I'm taking about. I think you got to go out and you got to watch."
The Republican nominee has in the past said he's afraid the general election is going to be "rigged."
Earlier this month, Trump said the only way he could lose the state of Pennsylvania would be if "cheating goes on."
“That’s the way we can lose the state, and we have to call up law enforcement and we have to have the sheriffs and the police chiefs and everybody watching," he said at a rally earlier this month there.
"The only way they can beat it, in my opinion, and I mean this 100 percent, is if in certain sections of the state they cheat."

A page on the GOP nominee's website lets supporters volunteer to assume the role of a "Trump Election Observer." It is not clear what the Trump campaign plans to have the volunteers do.
Trump again alluded to the idea of the system being rigged Monday, saying, "There's something going on."
