ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: A group of mariachis from Mexico serenaded U.S. Republican Nominee Donald Trump on Tuesday night (November 8) with a performance outside his Trump Tower headquarters in Manhattan as the U.S. election enters its final hours. Wearing traditional mariachi costumes, the musicians performed classic Mexican folk songs with Trump's headquarters towering above them. "We performed to have a good time because this election has been very sad and it has had a big impact on all of us and so this is an opportunity to experience some happiness now that the election is coming to an end," said Mariela Navarro, a Mariachi musician from Mexico. Trump and his rival Democrat Hillary Clinton waged a close battle in several crucial battleground states on Tuesday in their bitter race for the White House.
