Lakeland Fl – Today Donald Trump made an appearance at Lakeland Linder Regional Airport to speak to a crowd of approximately 5000 with at least 2000 more supporters outside of the facility.

During his speech which lasted about 45 minutes, Trump promised change to America if he is elected. The crowd many time erupting in applause and Trump chants.

Trump told the spectators that the reason he is running is because America has given him a great family, and he wants to make America great again.

During the event, there were numerous attacks on the media for failure to fully report all of the news effectively. This came to the delight of the crowd.

Trump promised to appoint a special prosecutor to not only look into the matters concerning not only Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, but also her staff that was involved during the email  scandal.

At one point during the event he referred to Florida as his second home and promised to money back towards agriculture and get jobs back in this state.

At the end of the rally, Trump stated:

To the African America community, Latino community, and all other communities, I will be there for you as your President.  – Donald J. Trump

NAPLES, Fla. Today, Governor Scott was briefed by the Florida Division of Emergency Management on Hurricane Matthew, a major category 4 hurricane with maximum sustained winds of 140 miles per hour.

Governor Rick Scott said, “As Hurricane Matthew moves through the Caribbean this weekend, it’s a very dangerous storm and life threatening. We haven’t seen a storm of this magnitude approach our state in a very long time. While the National Hurricane Center’s forecast continues to show the track of the storm east of our state, it’s too soon to rule out impacts to Florida. We know how fast the track of a storm can change, and I urge everyone in Florida to prepare this weekend for any impacts this storm may bring.  Even if it does not directly hit our state, we will likely see strong winds, rip currents and beach erosion all along the east coast of our state. I will continue to monitor this storm throughout the weekend to ensure Florida is prepared and ready to respond.  If you don’t have a plan, please visit FLGetAPlan.com so that you and your family can get prepared.”

Florida Division of Emergency Management Director Bryan Koon said, “Hurricane Matthew’s exact pathway is continuing to develop, but we know this is a large and especially powerful storm which is expected to remain a major hurricane as it nears Florida. Do not get complacent. Understand that this storm is large enough and powerful enough for it produce strong rip currents and severe weather, even without making direct landfall in Florida.
