Trump says Democrats have a 'wrecking ball'
US President Donald Trump told Florida voters that Democrats want to knock the country down "with a giant wrecking ball." The president was hosting a rally in Pensacola, Florida, his second of the day after a rally in Montana. Trump appeared in Florida to back the Republican candidate for the Senate, Governor Rick Scott, and the GOP's nominee for governor, Ron DeSantis. Trump said Florida's Democratic senator, Bill Nelson, hasn't lobbied his White House on behalf of Florida residents. And he says the Democratic nominee for governor, Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, will ruin the state in one or two years, adding that Gillum just isn't "equipped" to be governor. Trump is highlighting the nation's economy, including record-low unemployment, particularly among racial minorities, and promising a tax cut focused on the middle class.
