Donald Trump's chances of pulling off a comeback in the presidential race depend on him winning one of his two home states.
He's willing to campaign almost nonstop during the week, hopping from state to state and attending several events in one day - just not on Sundays.
Before the scheduled rally, Trump stopped in at the St. Johns County Sheriffs Office for a roundtable discussion with area first responders that lasted about 20 minutes. "I'm here a lot - it's a great place".
"I don't know what kind of shape I'm in but I'll be happy, and at least I will have known, win, lose or draw - and I'm nearly sure, if the people come out, we're going to win, but I will be - I will be happy with myself because I always say, I don't want to think back, 'If I only I did one more rally, I would have won North Carolina by 500 votes, instead of losing it by 200 votes, right? If you read The New York Times and if you read some of these phony papers - these are phony, disgusting, dishonest papers - but if you read the stuff, it's like what are we doing?"
Trump's campaign announced a rally for the St. Augustine Amphitheatre at 3pm Monday.
The Republican candidate, who usually likes to campaign in different states on consecutive days, wraps up his extended trip to Florida on Tuesday with appearances in Sanford and Tallahassee.
Later in the rally, Trump called out to Fox News" Carl Cameron, who was standing on the press riser, and said: "Do you see all of those "Women for Trump' signs, Carl?"
"Everyone knows the assault our profession has been under", Shoar said. Florida is considered to be the 10th most powerful vote in the nation, and as a swing state, it's an important demographic if Trump hopes to win the election. Donald Trump simply has no pathway to 270 electoral votes if he does not carry the state on November 8th.
Most polls show Trump trails Clinton nationally.
"A Trump administration will also work alongside you to restore and protecting the handsome Florida Everglades", said Trump. In Florida, RealClearPolitics gives Clinton a 3.8 percentage point lead. Trump hit his usual talking points at the Naples rally Sunday, accusing Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton of impropriety and claiming the election system is rigged against him.
In his travels across the state, Trump has accused the Democrats of making up "phony" polls to suppress his voter turnout, a major part of his campaign efforts. Clinton, meanwhile, is in Coconut Creek on Monday.
Trump again promised to block all Syrian refugees fleeing a violent civil war from entering the United States: "We're going to shut that door, and we're going to shut it tight", he said.
There are glimmers of hope for Trump supporters.
