President Trump owned Florida on Tuesday night, Nov. 26, at what was dubbed by his campaign re-election as his “homecoming rally.”
Having made Mar-a-Lago his official residence, the president sparked the beginning of his Thanksgiving holiday with a rally at the BB&T Center in Sunrise, Florida. Not happy with the treatment he has been receiving from politicians in New York, where he grew up, he decided to move to Florida.
“I cherish New York and the people of New York, and always will,” President Trump tweeted.
“But unfortunately, despite the fact I pay millions of dollars in city, state, and local taxes each year, I have been treated very badly by the political leaders of both the city and state,” he wrote.
“Good riddance,” New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo tweeted after learning about Trump’s decision to move. “It’s not like Mr. Trump paid taxes here anyway. He’s all yours, Florida.”
Outside the BB&T Center in Sunrise, a group of about 200 protesters, with a helium-filled “Baby Trump” balloon, and some chanting, “Lock him up,” seemed insignificant among the sea of red and white, waiting to greet the president.
The chants from inside the stadium, “four more years,” and “USA, USA,” drowned out any protests toward the president, and a chant of “Conan, Conan,” erupted when Vice President Mike Pence mentioned in his introductory remarks the now-famous Belgian Malinois that had a crucial role in the killing of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
“Our troops are coming home and Conan the hero dog is just fine,” Pence told the crowd, reports Fox News.
During Vice President Mike Pence’s introductory remarks, a chant of “Conan, Conan” broke out when Pence mentioned the Belgian Malinois that played a starring role in the raid that killed Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
“Our troops are coming home, and Conan, the hero dog is just fine,” Pence told the crowd.
In his speech, when he took to the podium, President Trump told the crowd he would be alongside them at the ballot box; he would keep control of the Senate and win back the House, and “keep that beautiful White House.”
With the stock market at yet another all-time high and the economy flourishing, the president said, “Everybody’s getting rich and I’m working my [expletive removed] off.”
The Trump administration has created 6.7 million new jobs, with around 600,000 jobs created in Florida since President Trump’s election.
Speaking on the impeachment inquiry, “First it was the Russia hoax, total hoax, a failed overthrow attempt and the biggest fraud in the history of our country,” said the president. “Now, the same maniacs are pushing the deranged impeachment, a witch hunt the same as before.”
The polls are telling the real story of how the public feels about impeachment, said the president. “A lot of bad things are happening to them,” he said. “You see what’s happening in the polls? Everybody said, ‘You know what? That’s real [obscenity removed].”
