President Donald Trump will return to Florida for a “homecoming rally” next week, the president said Monday, Nov. 18, in a tweet to announce his campaign rally.
The rally will be held on Nov. 26, in Sunrise in Broward County. The event is scheduled to start at 7 p.m. at the BB&T Center.
The event is dubbed a “homecoming rally” after President Trump had recently announced he was changing his residency to Florida from New York. He has long owned property in Palm Beach County in Florida.
“President Trump recently became an official resident of the great state of Florida and looks forward to a ‘Welcome Home!’ rally with his fellow Floridians,” said Michael Glassner, executive director of the Trump campaign.
“Florida is thriving under President Trump and this homecoming rally will be one of our best yet,” Glassner said in a prepared statement announcing the rally.
This is the second rally for the president in Florida this year after the first one held on June 18 in Orlando where President Trump formally announced his re-election campaign.
At his high-energy rally in Orlando in June, 20,000 supporters filled the Amway Center while large overflow crowds watched the rally outside the venue on big screens. Supporters lined up 40 hours in advance and 120,000 ticket requests were made to the campaign.
According to Palm Beach Post, the timing of the next rally suggests President Trump is likely to spend Thanksgiving holiday at his Mar-a-Lago club as he has in the past two previous years.
