Editorial: Floridians Send A Clear Message: Trump and His Broken Promises Are Not Welcome Here

Florida Democrats From Across the State Are Motivated to Defeat Trump in 2020

As Trump held an event to mark his official move to Mar-a-Lago, Floridians called out his record of broken promises and let him know he’s not welcome in their state.

See for yourself:

BAY NEWS 9: “‘Floridians keep hearing what Trump and Florida Republicans ‘are going to do,’ ‘ says Florida Democratic Party executive director Juan Penalosa. ‘Trump was going to provide FEMA funds to the panhandle. He was going to help Venezuela. He was going to lower healthcare costs and honor our troops. Trump has not kept one promise,’ Penalosa went on. ‘If he does intend to keep the promise of spending $200 million to attempt to buy an election, he is going to face a great deal of opposition from the millions of people he has marginalized, dismissed and lied to.’”

MIAMI HERALD: “Juan Peñalosa, executive director for the Florida Democratic Party, said volunteerism is up about 400 percent from this time four years ago and fundraising has jumped as much as 15 percent since Trump announced he was moving to Florida. Those numbers aren’t possible, Peñalosa said, ‘unless there’s a whole lot of enthusiasm on our side to get him out of office.’”

CBS MIAMI: “President Donald Trump’s ‘Homecoming Rally’ at the BB&T Center in Sunrise won’t be the only rally at the venue. With nearly 600-thousand registered Democratic voters in Boward, they outnumber registered Republicans in the county by more than two to one. Democrats plan to welcome Trump to Florida with the Baby Trump Balloon and a rally to Defeat Trump. ‘We plan to send a message to Trump – Florida is tired of being hurt by his broken promises,’ said Rizzo in a statement. ‘This isn’t a homecoming rally, this is a retirement party.’”

MIAMI HERALD: “A day before newly minted Florida resident President Donald Trump’s ‘homecoming’ visit to Broward County and hours before a Republican rally for Latinos Monday, Democrats held a conference call to talk about their efforts to mobilize Hispanic voters to vote blue in 2020. Among the issues they discussed: Cuba policy, Trump’s actions in Puerto Rico and the Latinos for Trump group, which they called ‘a sham.’ … According to a recent Telemundo/Mason-Dixon poll, 64% of Latino voters would choose to replace Trump with a Democratic president, compared with 25% who said they would support him.”

WTSP TAMPA: “‘We plan to send a message to Trump – Florida is tired of being hurt by his broken promises,’ Florida Democratic Party Chair Terrie Rizzo said in a statement. ‘This isn’t a homecoming rally, this is a retirement party.’”

THE LEDGER: “When Trump arrives for Tuesday night’s event at the BB&T Center, Democrats will be protesting nearby. An email sent out by the Palm Beach County Democratic Party called on its members to offer the president their own ‘welcome’ rally. ‘Donald Trump is moving to Florida, but we’ve got a message for him: Whether he resides in New York or in Florida, we WILL defeat him in 2020!,’ the email invite read.”
