‘I’m here because I want to be among the people’
- President Donald Trump stepped off of Air Force One for a speech in Melbourne, Florida on Saturday
- He was introduced by the First lady Melania Trump who opened the rally with The Lord’s Prayer
- President spoke about bringing back jobs and increasing national security, and slammed the press
- He defended the controversial immigration ban and bashed the appellate court that struck it down
The president was introduced in front of a crowd of 9,000 in Melbourne by Melania Trump, who led them in The Lord’s Prayer after she and her husband stepped off Air Force One on Saturday afternoon.
The First Lady, after embracing the president, promised to ‘stay true to myself and be truthful to you’ and told the audience, ‘my husband is creating a country of great safety and prosperity’.
The ‘Make America Great Again Rally’ was almost identical in rhetoric to his 2016 campaign events that focused on bringing back jobs and increasing national security. Unsurprisingly, this rally had a heavier focus on bashing press coverage than before.
