Trump keeps focus on economic success at Tampa rally

Trump keeps focus on economic success at Tampa rally

One Florida congressman running for the Republican nomination for governor is getting a lot of attention for a campaign commercial supporting President Donald Trump.

"I want to thank our farmers".

His trip on Tuesday - his second to the Tampa area since becoming president - included a workforce development event at Tampa Bay Technical High School, followed by the rally at the fairgrounds, to support the gubernatorial bid of Rep. Ron DeSantis.

"He's a balance - if nothing else, can we just have balance?" "That's a big one", said Trump, adding, "Democrats want to raise your taxes, they want to destroy your jobs, they want to crush our industries with crippling regulations".

On Tuesday, the president will headline a DeSantis rally in Tampa. "We support policies that help all people improve their lives".

The Tampa rally was a reminder that Trump - the man, the President and his entire political project - can be sustained only with the anger, the adulation and the chance to tear at the nation's most irritated political divides that he can find only in a campaign context.

US President Donald Trump campaigned in the battleground state of Florida Tuesday, hoping to energize Republicans facing a stiff test in November polls.

"The president is the leader of the party".

"We've had divisiveness long before Trump became president and we'll have it long after he's no longer president", Koch said during a rare question-and-answer session with reporters.

"You know, if you go out and you want to buy groceries, you need a picture on a card". He is arguing that he must act himself - that he wants to take things into his own hands, the source said.

Florida GOP candidate Ron DeSantis released a new campaign ad on Monday showcasing his child's ability to build a wall.

As his wife explains that he is teaching his daughter to talk, the video shows him holding a Trump sign and reading to her "Make". And after a while, you forget: 'Who's the senator?' But around five months, you see him at parties and you see him around ...

Two House candidates he backed - Katie Arrington in SC and Rep. Martha Roby in a runoff for her seat in Alabama - both won.

Trump's arrival in Florida underscored the larger-than-life presence he has wielded in Republican primaries ahead of the 2018 midterm elections, capable of influencing the outcomes of primaries with a single tweet.

Trump vanquished two of Florida's most famous GOP figures - former Gov. Jeb Bush and Sen. The remaining were undecided for the August 28th primary.
