Trump, Facing Trouble In Florida, Goes All In

President Trump is pulling out all the stops in Florida ahead of November as polls there show him trailing former Vice President Joe Biden

Trump is going all-in to repeat his 2016 success in the country's biggest swing state, but polls indicate he has an uphill climb ahead.

The president has also become more vocal about the importance of wearing face masks in public spaces, posting a picture of himself wearing one on Twitter this week and calling it “patriotic.” 

“I think where the Trump administration wants to improve their messaging is they want to make sure that Floridians, particularly seniors and those in the suburbs, [know] that the president is doing everything he can,” Florida-based GOP strategist Ford O’Connell told The Hill. 

“He wants to make sure they know, and that he’s putting the coronavirus front and center,” he said. “I think if he gets over that hurdle in Florida with how they perceive him handling the coronavirus, which he can do from the White House bully pulpit, then he will be in a lot better standing in Florida.”
