President Trump hit the campaign trail today and held a rally in front of a lively crowd in Sanford, Florida.
Jim Acosta and CNN were there and when Acosta did a live segment before the rally the crowd shut him down with chants of CNN sucks. (see video below)
He said live on air, “And as this crowd is chanting that there are members of the press here who suck…I should also point out, Wolff. What also sucks? Getting the coronavirus.”
Trump took the stage shortly after and started string and ended stronger. “I feel so powerful,” Trump said. “I’ll walk in there and kiss everyone in the audience. I’ll kiss the guys; I’ll kiss the beautiful women.”
Thousands of people cheered and chanted “We love you!” as President Donald Trump flew into Central Florida on Monday night to hold his first campaign rally outside Washington since his coronavirus diagnosis 11 days ago.
“It’s great to be back in my home state of Florida,” Trump declared during his nearly hourlong speech. “We’ve all endured a lot together, and we are doing better by far than in 2016. We are going to have an even greater victory than we did four years ago.”
The mostly maskless crowd was seated closely together in chairs and bleachers when Trump took the podium on the tarmac at Orlando Sanford International Airport, with Air Force One parked nearby. Many had waited four or more hours for the event to begin.
Trump declared the election between himself and Joe Biden “the most important in American history” and attacked Biden for what he said would be a “draconian, scientific top-down” way of combating COVID-19.
“If you don’t feel good about” going out amid the pandemic, then “stay,’” Trump said. “If you want to get out there, get out there.”
