LIFA was there!
Donald Trump kicked off his campaign in Florida with appearances in Miami and Jacksonville, where LIFA caught up with him and recorded his comments on illegal immigration, the border, and the wall.
Thousands turn out for Donald Trump’s speech in Jacksonville
The New York businessman is leading Florida-based candidates Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio
Thousands of supporters chanting “Trump, Trump, Trump” and “Build the Wall” cheered presidential candidate Donald Trump throughout his 80-minute speech Saturday to a crowd crammed into The Jacksonville Landing’s courtyard.
Coming on the heels of Trump’s campaign stop Friday in Miami, Jacksonville is the second Florida city visited by Trump as polls show him leading two other candidates who are rooted in state politics — former Gov. Jeb Bush and U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio.
Trump said Bush is in the midst of a “failing campaign” that had to cut staff salaries by 40 percent.
“Here’s a guy who wants to run the country and he can’t even run his own campaign,” Trump said.
Trump said Rubio is trailing in the polls, “sweats like a dog” and showed a lack of loyalty to Bush by running for president at the same time as Bush.
“So those two guys are fighting like crazy, and I’m laughing, watching them fighting,” Trump said.
Trump took the stage to the pounding chorus of Twisted Sister’s rock song “We’re Not Gonna Take It” while wearing his campaign’s red baseball cap with the slogan “Make America Great Again.”
