Stars come out for Clinton as Trump brags he doesn't need them

On the final Friday night before the 2016 presidential election, Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton wrapped up a busy day of campaigning with a Cleveland concert featuring singer Beyonce and her husband, rapper Jay Z.

Republican nominee Donald Trump opted for the opposite approach, relying on his personal celebrity to draw a crowd of thousands to an event in Hershey, Pa.

"I didn't have to bring J-Lo or Jay Z," Trump said. "I am here all by myself. Just me. No guitar, no piano, no nothing."

Clinton's campaign has hosted a series of free concerts designed to drum up enthusiasm for her bid, particularly among millennials and minority voters. Rocker Bon Jovi and R&B singer Ne-Yo rallied voters in North Carolina, while singer/actress Jennifer Lopez took the stage in Miami and singer Steve Wonder was performing in Philadelphia.

In Cleveland, Beyonce and Jay Z offered their own testimonials for Clinton, with the "Single Ladies" singer noting that less than a century ago, women did not have the right to vote.

"Look how far we've come from having no voice to being on the brink of history -- again," Beyonce said. "But we have to vote."

Beyonce said she was thrilled that her young nephew was able to witness Barack Obama's 2008 election as the nation's first black president and now she wanted her daughter "to grow up seeing a woman lead this country and know her possibilities are limitless," Beyoncesaid. "That's why I'm with her."

Jay Z told the crowd of 10,000 that Trump "cannot be our president," adding that the Republican nominee's "conversation is divisive."

Clinton herself told the crowd to "take this energy out with you [and] help us win Ohio," reciting the address of an early voting location.

Trump has campaigned with some celebrity supporters, most notably former Indiana University basketball coach Bobby Knight. A New Hampshire event with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie scheduled for Saturday was canceled after two of his top aides were found guilty Friday on all counts for their roles in the George Washington Bridge lane closure scandal.

In Pennsylvania, Trump criticized Obama for his apparent nonstop campaigning on behalf of Clinton, his onetime rival for the presidency.

"He's like a cheerleader, jumping all over the place for Hillary," Trump said before adding, "We're better off if he doesn't work."

Trump also criticized the conduct of the ongoing offensive to retake Mosul, Iraq from ISIS, saying that the recapture of the city by Iraqi government forces would benefit Iran.

"We're not going to benefit. Because Iran is taking over Iraq," Trump said. "We handed that to them ..."

Clinton's own version of a greatest hits tour was to continue Saturday when she will host a concert with pop star Katy Perry in Philadelphia after stopping in Florida earlier in the day. The former secretary of state will then return to Philadelphia on Monday for a joint rally with President Barack Obama, first lady Michelle Obama and Clinton's husband, former President Bill Clinton.

Trump will be campaigning in Florida, North Carolina, Nevada and Colorado on Saturday, making last-ditch efforts to win support in states that both sides agree he must win to have a chance at the White House.
