Florida GOP governor candidate, 'Pitbull Trump Defender,' releases campaign video

Florida GOP governor candidate, 'Pitbull Trump Defender,' releases campaign video

Many are so laboured that they make you want to wince, rather than laugh.

No one knows better than President Donald Trump what worked for him in 2016, and now he's going back to the well - trusting no one but himself - to stave off the threat of a Democratic rout in November that could cripple his presidency. "Not good. Not nice", Trump said. It's not unlike the sort of skit you might see on John Oliver, or perhaps something Sacha Baron Cohen might trick a politician into on Who Is America?. "I've kept my promises".

China and other top USA trade partners zeroed in on American farmers with retaliatory tariffs after the administration imposed duties on Chinese goods as well as steel and aluminium from the European Union, Canada and Mexico. China has moved to impose tariffs on US soybeans.

The comment came as Mr Trump waded into Florida Republican politics, endorsing US Representative Ron DeSantis in a competitive primary for governor and backed the Senate campaign of his longtime ally, Governor Rick Scott.

One Florida congressman running for the Republican nomination for governor is getting a lot of attention for a campaign commercial supporting President Donald Trump.

Many questioned if the billionaire president had ever bought groceries in his life.


WUSF News spoke to supporters and protestors outside the Florida State Fairgrounds expo hall in Tampa shortly before President Donald Trump appeared at a rally Tuesday. Last week Trump tweeted that he endorsed DeSantis, adding that he would be a "great" governor. The ad describes him as a "pitbull Trump defender".

The 30-second ad is narrated by DeSantis' wife Casey, whose pitch for her husband includes telling viewers that he is "an incredible dad" who loves "playing with the kids" and "reads stories" to them.

The candidate teaches one of his two children to "build the wall" - a reference to Trump's proposed wall on the USA border with Mexico - and shows them building a wall out of cardboard blocks.

The president also discussed worldwide issues, such as Iran and Palestine. "The most popular person in the history of the Republican party is Trump!" . Bill Nelson (D-FL), has also opened up a three-point lead over Nelson. Trump also will take part in a round table talk on career education around 6 p.m.at Tampa Bay Tech High School. The remaining were undecided for the August 28th primary.

In Tampa, Trump also alluded to the possibility of a government shutdown at the end of September, saying he "may have to do some pretty drastic things" to get funding for a wall. "And they just totally don't get what we were trying to convey".

While Time magazine reports there are certain stores that ask to see identification when someone pays with a credit card, there are no known requirements for purchasing groceries. He told supporters, "If you go out and you want to buy groceries, you need a picture on a card, you need ID".


"I am thrilled that President Trump has made it a priority to strengthen vocational training throughout the nation", said Putnam, looking for ways to tie his campaign into the president's visit "Here in Florida, I believe that if we give Floridians greater access to skills and training, then they can find their piece of the American Dream".

He said Tuesday: "After a while, you forget who's the senator".

Trump has maintained a steady presence in the state, returning frequently to his winter home in Palm Beach.

The content of the ad is appropriate for swinging Republicans toward DeSantis in the state.

"I don't think he's anxious about the general election at this point".
