Melania Trump champions husband Donald in dueling Florida rally with Biden

0

First lady Melania Trump gave a full-throated endorsement of her husband at a rally in Tampa as the couple campaigned together in Florida on Thursday in a dueling event with Democratic nominee Joe Biden.

Clad in a leopard-print dress, the ex-model told the crowd to re-elect President Trump, touting his foreign policy record and domestic achievements in her first appearance at a rally since Trump’s re-election kickoff in Florida in June 2019.

“President Trump chooses to move this country forward. This country deserves a president with proven results, not empty words and promises,” Melania Trump told the crowd to chants of “four more years.”

Meanwhile, Biden was in Coconut Creek where he told a crowd of supporters at a drive-in rally that the election was “over” for Trump if the Sunshine State went blue.

The RealClearPolitics polling average gives Biden a razor-thin .5 percentage-point lead in the battleground state, well within the margin of error.

Speaking after the rare introduction for his notoriously-private wife, Trump called for the prosecution of Miles Taylor, the former Department of Homeland Security official who on Wednesday outed himself as “Anonymous,” a 2018 New York Times op-ed critical of the president.

“There should be major criminal liability for some scum like this,” Trump said to cheers. “It turns out to be this low life who nobody knows who he is. He had nothing to do with us.

“He should be prosecuted. Are you listening to me back in Washington? He should be prosecuted,” Trump went on.

The commander-in-chief also railed against Biden’s son Hunter, following The Post’s bombshell coverage of their shady overseas business dealings.

“They don’t call him out on where’s Hunter.” Trump said, blasting the media blackout of the scandal-scarred son’s emails which indicate the former veep was involved in a deal to make millions in China.

“Where’s Hunter? Is Hunter in the crowd?” he went on to cheers of “Where is Hunter?” and “lock him up!”

Both Trump and Biden are in the battleground state of Florida on Thursday where they are holding dueling rallies as polls show an extremely close race for the Sunshine State’s 29 electoral votes.

The Slovenian-born first lady had been slated to join her husband at a campaign rally in Erie, Penn., earlier this month but had to cancel her appearance because she was suffering from lingering COVID-19 symptoms after the first family contracted the virus.

With just five days until Election Day, the low-profile first lady travelled to the swing-state of Pennsylvania on Tuesday where she told a crowd of supporters than Democratic nominee Joe Biden was a “socialist.”
