Trump holds Fla. rally to support Republican candidate for governor

Trump made the comment while pushing for voter ID laws at a rally in Tampa to support Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) in the state's gubernatorial race. DeSantis hypes up Trump's economy and says we have "strong constitutionalists" who are now being appointed.

The 30-second spot continues sprinkled with amusing lines and images - all reinforcing that DeSantis is 100 percent Trump.

Trump said he spends a lot of time in Florida and only sees Nelson when it is election season.

Greene has campaigned off of his adversarial relationship with the President, even going as far as purchasing TV ads depicting him arguing with Trump at Mar-a-Lago. The spot opens with DeSantis's wife, Casey, touting Trump's endorsement, before featuring footage of him urging his young daughter to "build the wall" with colored toy blocks and leaning over the crib of his infant son, who is clad in a red "Make America Great Again" onesie. The president also was stumping for two-term Republican Gov. Rick Scott, who is campaigning to defeat Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Florida.

"The president is the leader of the party".

The president referred to his efforts to get Congress to approve more funding for a border wall, and the prospect of a partial government shutdown in the fall over the issue.

Trump has maintained a steady presence in the state, returning frequently to his winter home in Palm Beach.

Ron DeSantis, a Republican congressman who is now running for governor of Florida, is a prime example. Marco Rubio - in 2016's GOP presidential primary. He also held an anti-Trump protest near the rally earlier on Tuesday. DeSantis has been a vocal advocate of Mr. Trump and his policies, as well as a vocal critic of the Justice Department and intelligence agencies.
