President Donald Trump came up with a new Abraham Lincoln-themed pitch at his Omaha, Nebraska rally - his final stop on a three-state tour Tuesday.
Trump said voting for the Republicans is 'a vote for acknowledgement that Abraham Lincoln was a Republican. Isn't that nice?'
'People don't know what. A lot of people don't know that,' Trump then said.

Lincoln is widely known as the country's first Republican president.
Trump has, in the past, boasted that he's done more for black Americans than every president except Lincoln, who freed the slaves and was in office during the Civil War.
His rival, Democrat Joe Biden, turned that on its head during Thursday's final presidential debate.
'Abraham Lincoln here is one of the most racist president we've had in modern history,' Biden said. 'He pours fuel on every single racist fire. Every single one.'
At the Nebraska rally, Trump neglected to make his usual Lincoln boast.
He began by teasing his audience about Tucker Carlson's interview with Biden's son Hunter's ex-business partner Tony Bobulinski.
'So bad news just came out on Biden, but I won't tell you about that. You'll find that out tomorrow,' Trump said.
Three minutes later he gave a little more.
'Moments ago we learn about the other reason Joe Biden has been hiding in his basement. In a national television interview - do you want me to tell you the rest?'
His crowd chanted yes.
'The Biden family's business partner revealed shocking, disturbing and explosive information about Joe Biden's corrupt and illicit foreign business dealings while he was vice president,' Trump said.
Bobulinski is alleging that the Democratic nominee knew more than he's said about Hunter's foreign business dealings.
'This all happened at the same time as Biden was letting China steal American jobs and plunder American wealth, you saw that for eight years,' Trump said. 'If Biden wins, China wins and China will own the USA.'
'By the way, he's not a good guy, just so you understand,' the president added.
That earned Trump a Biden-themed 'lock him up!' chant from the crowd.
As the president headlined another mass gathering as COVID-19 cases increase, he spent a good chunk of his shorter, 45-minute rally praising his response.
Trump gave a hat-tip to his White House doctor, Sean Conley, who he said was in the crowd.
He also mistakenly told supporters, 'We will vanquish the vaccine,' a slip that came after spending the day poking fun of Biden's gaffes.
The Nebraska stop earned Trump a hat trick for the day in campaign rallies.
He's putting in time there because Nebraska's 2nd Congressional District looks to be up for grabs - with Biden dedicating resources there already.
