Is Donald Trump coming to Florida?Comments Off on Is Donald Trump coming to Florida?
While his schedule is only posted online through today — showing a rally in Cincinnati, Ohio tonight — The Tampa Bay Times and Miami Herald report that Donald Trump may be making a stop in Miami, Florida in coming days.
- Station trying to confirm rumors that Trump is coming to Florida in next couple of days
- Florida is a key swing state with 99 delegates
This station reached out to the Trump campaign and is awaiting a response.
But it would not be surprising, given the fact that Florida is a key swing state with 99 delegates at stake.
Tuesday night, the presumptive Republican nominee for president held a rally in Raleigh, N.C. before a crowd of 2,000 plus. Tennessee Senator Bob Corker, who chairs the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, introduced the Republican presidential nominee.
Corker, along with New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and Indiana Governor Mike Pence, are among the potential running mates for Trump. His pick for vice president could be announced in the coming days, prior to the convention, according to multiple news outlets.
The centerpiece of his speech was about Hillary Clinton, or as he’s dubbed her, “Crooked Hillary.”
Trump wasted no time pouncing on news of Clinton’s server scandal. The Republican bemoaned the fact that the FBI did not recommend charges against Clinton, even using one of his now-signature phrases to explain: The system is rigged.
“Today is the best evidence that we’ve ever seen that our system is totally rigged. Hillary Clinton put the entire country in danger,” Trump stated, continuing, “Our enemies may have blackmail file on crooked Hillary and this alone means she should not be allowed to serve as President of the U.S.”
With their conventions on the horizon, Trump and Clinton are each working to unify their respective political parties.
News 13 and sister station, Bay News 9 in Tampa, will be heading to both the RNC and DNC conventions.
Trump stopped in the Sunshine State several times in the last few months, heading to Tampa twice and Mar-A-Lago in March.
