Donald Trump stumps in Tampa

trump rally 06.11

Donald Trump is bringing his presidential campaign to Florida.

The presumptive Republican nominee is set to appear Saturday at a campaign rally in Tampa. It begins at 11 a.m.

Polls show Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton are tied in Florida, one of the nation’s biggest battleground states.

Trump is striking a more welcoming tone after being slammed for suggesting that the judge hearing a case against his now-defunct Trump University is biased against him because the judge’s parents were born in Mexico. He told a gathering of evangelical Christians in Washington on Friday that “no one should be judged by their race or their color.”

Trump has refused to apologize for his remarks about the judge. He issued a statement earlier this week saying his comments had been “misconstrued.”
