    Donald Trump held three rallies in North Carolina and Pennsylvania on Friday in which he compared the inaccurate early predictions of Britain's "Brexit" to his own presidential campaign.

    The Republican nominee, down in the polls, told crowds the U.S. presidential election would be "beyond Brexit," "Brexit plus" and even “Brexit times five." In June, voters in the U.K. elected to leave the European Union in a result that defied predictions.

    Trump over the summer and in early fall has been fond of telling crowds he correctly predicted the outcome of that referendum, NBC News reports.

    Trump also took aim at the media again Friday, calling them out for perpetuating a "rigged system" designed to keep him from the White House. "They're the most dishonest people," Trump said of the media. The crowds’ boos turned to chants of "CNN sucks."
