  • Rep. Ron De Santis is a candidate for governor of Florida

Trump's weird and inaccurate claims in support of the laws certainly won't help win much additional support on the issue.

President Donald Trump waves at supporters after landing in Tampa on Tuesday.

"I can be more presidential than any president in history, except for maybe Abe Lincoln with the big hat", Trump said.

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.

Florida, where Trump's Mar-a-Lago Club rises amid manicured greens and gently curved palm trees, is something of a second home for the president, who has dubbed his membership-only retreat "the Winter White House". "The only time I see Bill Nelson is five months before every election".

Trump will not be one of those presidents who only grudgingly tears himself away from the weighty affairs of state to campaign for party lawmakers.

Trump said Nelson wants to raise taxes, supports sanctuary cities, and opposed "Kate's Law", which would have increased criminal penalties for repeat illegal immigrants who committed violent crimes.

With sky-high approval ratings among Republican voters, the president has injected himself into several recent GOP primaries, helping candidates in Georgia, Alabama and SC with endorsements that have helped set the stage for the fall elections.

Smoke rises above Clear Lake as the River Fire ( Mendocino Complex ) burns near Lakeport, California, U.S. The Carr Fire burning in Shasta County has grown over 115,000 acres and is 35 percent contained.

"My great friend, a tough, brilliant cookie".

Outside the auditorium in Tampa, Trump's former campaign chairman Paul Manafort was back in his cell after the first day of his trial.

"This morning, POTUS signed the Perkins Career and Technical Education Act in to law!" she wrote on Instagram. U.S. Reps. Gus Bilirakis and Matt Gaetz, two Florida Republicans running for re-election, joined him as well.

Campaigning in Tampa, Florida, for his endorsed GOP primary candidates for governor and Senate, Mr. Trump said Democrats nationwide are "lousy politicians" who embrace "horrible policies".

Donald Trump denies all, attacking Mueller and Cohen over Russian Federation probe
We are very confident of the accuracy and reliability of the information that has been provided by Mr Trump Jr and on his behalf'. The notion of collusion or a conspiracy is a "hoax", Trump frequently says, and Mueller's investigation is a "witch hunt".

Responding to Trump's social media attack, Koch spokesman James Davis was measured.

He later added: "I'm for America First & the American Worker - a puppet for no one".

To Ronald Palmer of Brooksville, that doesn't sound like a bad idea.

The president never mentioned DeSantis's primary opponent - Florida Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam - by name.

"I'm very anxious that the hostility whipped up by President Trump and some in conservative media will result in somebody getting hurt", Acosta noted. Scott is seeking to defeat Democratic Sen.

While the move echoed across the political world, Republican operatives quietly dismissed the practical impact of the Koch's decision on the North Dakota Senate race, where Cramer's campaign believes he has a double-digit lead in the deep-red state against the Democratic incumbent.

With sky-high approval ratings among Republican voters, the president has injected himself into several recent GOP primaries, helping candidates in Georgia, Alabama, and SC with endorsements that have helped set the stage for the fall elections.
