Trump rallies support for Scott, DeSantis in Florida midterm contests

Trump Campaigning

A White House spokesman did not immediately respond to questions from the Associated Press about when the president last bought groceries or anything else himself.

Trump was railing against the idea of noncitizens voting and advocating stricter voting laws when he asserted that IDs are required at the supermarket checkout.

Trump touted both of them as "fearless" and "fighters" for the people of Florida.

While the reasons for the early arrivals are plentiful, many said they're there to show support for the president. The president is joking that "Abe Lincoln is tough".

As in previous rallies, the President let his unease show on Tuesday, warning voters they need to be just as engaged as they were two years ago. But he doesn't mention that there were no scientific opinion polls in the 1860s when Lincoln was president.

The sources familiar with Trump's thinking also told Bash he is genuinely concerned about the outcome of November's elections, in which Democrats have perhaps a better than 50-50 chance of taking the House - and seriously curtailing his political power in Washington.

Monday night, they gathered in Tampa to make signs with messages like, "Lock him up" and "Vote them out".

Trump has maintained a steady presence in the state, returning frequently to his winter home in Palm Beach. "The only time I see Bill Nelson is five months before every election".

The controversy began in 2013 when self-styled crypto-anarchist Cody Wilson showed off the world's first 3D-printed gun. Grewal responded Monday with news that New Jersey would file a lawsuit against Defense Distributed .

"We have a great cabinet now, a couple of little changes, but we have a great cabinet", Trump said.

Although Scott attended the workforce development event at the Tampa high school, he steered clear of the later rally, instead attending a Senate fundraiser of his own. He was joined by Scott, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, daughter and adviser Ivanka Trump and several members of Congress from Florida. "Ron loves playing with the kids", she says, adding - with tongue firmly-in-cheek: "People say Ron's all Trump, but he is so much more". The contest is the latest GOP primary into which Trump has injected himself, having previously helped candidates in Georgia, Alabama and SC with endorsements that have helped set the stage for the fall elections.

Trump took the stage once again to urge voters to turn out for DeSantis in the primary.

Scott, who is running in one of the nation's marquee Senate races this fall, has largely been mum on the president during his Senate campaign.

In the Republican race to be Florida's next Governor, candidate Ron DeSantis is now on the offensive thanks to an endorsement by President Donald Trump.

He parked a bus with the words "Trump's worst nightmare" outside the venue Tuesday, drawing more than a few heckles and taunts.

Trump's remarks at the Florida State Fairgrounds Expo Hall come one week after his administration announced that it is preparing a $12 billion emergency aid package for farmers who have been caught in his escalating trade war with China and other countries.
