Donald Trump will hold another Florida rally Nov. 3 in Pensacola
No stranger to Tampa, Donald Trump is expected to discuss his favorite topic ... Donald Trump.

President Donald Trump will fly to Florida to rally voters here at least once in November, days before the midterm elections.

The website states he will be speaking at the Pensacola International Airport at 5:30 p.m. Doors open at 2:30 p.m.

Trump already plans to host a MAGA (that’s Make America Great Again) rally in Fort Myers on Oct. 31.

Republican operatives say Trump selected Fort Myers for two reasons. First, Germain Arena is one of the largest venues in Southwest Florida. Second, energizing Republican voters in Lee and Collier counties provides a foundation of support for statewide candidates.

Notably, Gov. Rick Scott, who is challenging Democratic incumbent Bill Nelson for his U.S. Senate seat, will make one of his first campaign trail appearances since Hurricane Michael when he goes to campaign alongside Trump and Republican gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis in Fort Myers.

The Nov. 3 rally happens the same day Trump already plans to host a rally in Bozeman, Montana.

And indeed, Florida and Montana both host major Senate races this year, here between Scott and Nelson and in the Big Sky State between Democratic incumbent Sen. Jon Tester and Republican challenger Matt Rosendale.

Of course, Trump also has a particular interest in the Governor’s race in Florida, where his endorsement of Ron DeSantis played a role in securing the Republican nomination for the former Congressman. Now, DeSantis faces a hard fight with Democrat Andrew Gillum.

Polls show both the Senate race and Governor election as dead heats.

With the addition of another Florida stop, that makes 11 rallies the president plans to hold between now and Election Day, so this may be the last time Trump visits the Sunshine State before the midterms wrap up.

    BILL NELSON and Socialist ANDREW GILLUM are running for Senate & Governor respectively. Nelson / Gillum both proudly supports abolishing ICE, sanctuary cities, amnesty for millions of illegal aliens, using taxpayer funds for illegal aliens & DACA. In addition, both are weak on border security and national defense.

    If you OPPOSE illegal immigration, taxpayer funds used for illegal aliens, sanctuary cities, amnesty r Please VOTE NO for BILL NELSON & ANDREW GILLUM this November….we can’t afford anymore Democrats. Both supported by both La Raza & MALDEF which says it all.

    Vote this election for candidates who prioritize citizens over illegal aliens (bet you thought that was a given …not anymore.) Those candidates who oppose sanctuary cities, open borders, non citizens voting, amnesty for millions of illegal aliens and taxpayer funded in state college tuition discounts. That means NO Democrats.

    Recent Gallup poll- almost 60% of Democrats now view socialism positively, little changed from 2010 survey.

    To Democrats programs like (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, DACA) and (Temporary Protective Status, TPS.) are permanent programs. There is nothing temporary about these programs to the left. The goal for Democrats is to flood/lure the country with illegal aliens & refugees, then fight against / eliminate deportations. Democrats want to encourage, reward, protect illegal aliens with jobs, amnesty, drivers licenses, discounts for college tuition, scholarships, then after they’re here….protect them from deportation. This creates MORE illegal entry and the Democrats know this.

    The current migration at our southern border is costing taxpayers a Kings Ransom. Fleeing persecution? or fleeing for freebies? they sure don’t stay in Mexico when they reach “safety” or ask for political asylum in Mexico. Why? because Mexico will give them NOTHING. So they make the long journey to our border, our generous Democrats and our tax dollars. Just debating DACA in congress is costing taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars….. thank the parents.

    Just a few examples of the more outrageous costs associated with illegal immigration, we will pass this burden on to our children and grand children as has been passed on to us.

    *The cost of educating illegal aliens children is staggering. From K-12 it costs taxpayers $122,000 for EACH illegal alien student. This does not include the billions spent on bilingual education for illegal aliens.

    *Taxpayers in numerous states are funding in state college tuition discounts for illegal aliens. Cost to taxpayers over a billion dollars annually.

    *30% percent of all Federal Prison inmates are illegal aliens.Does not include local jails and State Prisons. At $21,000 per year expense per inmate in Federal Prison U do the math.

    *$3Million Dollars a DAY is spent to incarcerate, process Illegal aliens in the Criminal justice system. I repeat 3 MILLION a DAY.

    *$2.2Billion dollars a year is spent on is spent on food assistance programs such as SNAP (food stamps) WIC, & free school lunches.

    If you OPPOSE illegal immigration, taxpayer funds used for illegal aliens, sanctuary cities, non citizens voting, open borders, amnesty for millions of illegal aliens, weak border security, tax increases. VOTE NO for ALL Democrats this November.
