Trump: ‘If I lose in Florida, I don’t care’
President Donald Trump is set to speak in Florida on Wednesday.
The Republican Party’s presumptive nominee is expected to address the crowd at the Florida Institute of Technology.
Florida, a state with an educated population, is Trump’s home state and has a history of electing Republican presidents.
But Trump is not expected to repeat his recent performance in his home state.
Trump was trounced in Florida in 2016 by Democrat Hillary Clinton.
Trump’s speech could draw criticism from some Democrats and Republicans alike for potentially inflating his margin of victory in Florida.
But the President has said he is willing to do well in Florida if he is able to win it.
“If I do well, I’ll win Florida,” Trump said during a news conference on Wednesday, according to the Associated Press.
“I don’t know if it’s the exact number, but it’s close.”
Trump will also be on stage at the University of Central Florida.
The event will be livestreamed on the Trump campaign’s YouTube channel.
Trump, who has often referred to himself as a “law and order candidate,” is expected with a group of GOP leaders, including former Florida Gov.
Jeb Bush, to talk about his policy proposals on immigration and border security.
