Trump's backing puts new twist on Florida governor's race

Ron De Santis teaches his toddler daughter Madison to

President Donald Trump is traveling to Tampa Tuesday night to hold his first campaign event in the Sunshine State this election cycle.

During a rally in Tampa, Florida, Trump said that if "you want to buy anything, you need ID and you need your picture", but this isn't true for buying standard groceries.

"You know, I live a lot of time in Florida", the president said. 'In this country, if you want to buy nearly anything, you need ID'.

Trump also railed against Democratic Sen.

The president is scheduled to arrive there around 5:30 p.m.

"They just came out with a poll, did you hear?"

DeSantis is running against Florida Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam in the state's August 28 GOP gubernatorial primary. DeSantis gave a fawning introduction to Trump in which he praised his leadership and policies.

The Trump administration announced a $12-billion farm aid package last week, prompting some farmers and farm-state lawmakers, including Trump's fellow Republicans, to criticize the move, saying they would rather trade with no tariffs than receive government help.

Federal judge blocks release of plans for 3D-printed guns
The blueprints for 3D printed guns have been available online for years now, mostly in the deep recesses of the dark web. The states sought a restraining order and an injunction to block the gun info from being posted on the internet.

"I'm confident that there's an bad lot of Trump-Putnam voters out there who want a governor who actually understands the challenges facing them and puts them first", said Putnam, who also has lauded Trump's record as president.

Florida represented a crucial triumph for Trump in the 2016 presidential election and the president has maintained a steady presence in the state, returning frequently to his winter home in Palm Beach. Putnam attempted to tap into the president's technical training agenda, even though he wasn't part of Trump's agenda. He's made countless stops around the state, running a traditional grassroots campaign with a focus on Florida issues.

Another Trump ally, Gov. Rick Scott, is joining the president at an event earlier in the day but steering clear of the Tampa rally as he prepares for the Senate primary. And a Tampa Bay Times reporter said the same.

"People ask me why I think I can prevail against Mr Trump", Avenatti wrote.

Trump said people watched his rally on TVs outside the Fairgrounds. Trump introduces DeSantis, who takes the stage.

The president also signed the Perkins Career and Technical Education Act during his visit to the school.

Trump said Nelson wants to raise taxes, supports sanctuary cities, and opposed "Kate's Law", which would have increased criminal penalties for repeat illegal immigrants who committed violent crimes.

"The days of plundering American jobs and American wealth - those days are over", Trump said.
