'A Guy Named Trump': President Votes In Florida For First Time Since Leaving New York City

President Trump cast his ballot early in West Palm Beach, Fla., on Saturday, telling a group of supporters: "I voted for a guy named Trump."

Trump changed his official residence last year to his private club at Mar-a-Lago from New York, after arguing that politicians in his home state have mistreated him. "JUST VOTED. A great honor!" he later posted on Twitter Saturday.

Trump cast absentee ballots during the presidential primary in March and again in the primary election in August.

Meanwhile, Vice President Mike Pence and his wife Karen dropped off their absentee ballots Friday at a site in Indianapolis.

The president made the tours to two predominantly red regions in Florida on Friday, The Villages, a retirement community located north of Orlando, and Pensacola, to start a weekend of marathon campaigning.

Crowds began lining up in the early-morning dark for a chance to cheer on their president. The Trump campaign scheduled “Trump the Vote” events at 9 a.m. throughout Florida from the Panhandle to Miami so voters could cast their ballots “with Donald Trump."

The crowds were gathered with American flags and MAGE gear early Saturday at the library, which is across the street from Trump’s golf course in West Palm Beach. Small groups of supporters of Joe Biden, the Democratic nominee, mixed in the crowd with their signs.

Trump entered at 9:59 a.m., wearing a mask, where he was greeted by Wendy Sartory Link, Palm Beach County’s recently elected supervisor of elections.

“To continue our movement, I am going to rely on you. Get out and vote,” Trump told supporters in the Sunshine state during a rally on Friday. “Vote early. Bring your friends, your family, your neighbors, your co-workers. Even grab your boss and say: ‘Come on, boss. You got to vote.’”

Despite increasing numbers of coronavirus cases, which risen above 80,000 in the country shattering single-day records on Friday and emphasizing a disturbing increase in several Midwest states, Trump will make the tours to battleground states, stumping in Lumberton, N.C; Circleville, Ohio, and Waukesha, Wisc., in the final 10 days of the campaign.

Former President Barack Obama will hold a demonstration for Democratic nominee Joe Biden in Miami on Saturday, as well.

Biden, in the meantime, will hold a pair of small events in Bucks County, part of suburban Philadelphia that 2016 Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton won by a slender part, and Luzerne County, a blue-collar area that twice voted for Obama but went majorly for Trump four years ago.
