Trump Campaign Bus Tour Makes its Way Through Central Florida

ORLANDO, Fla. (FNN NEWS) – Eric Trump and various Florida officials made campaign stops on a recent bus tour through Central Florida.

Kicking off at Osceola County’s Republican Headquarters, more than a hundred people gathered to see President Trump’s son Eric deliver remarks.

Eric Trump, alongside Florida Lieutenant Governor Jeanette Nuñes, Trump campaign advisor Corey Lewandowski, and former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, spoke on the upcoming election.

Eric listed the accomplishments of the Trump Administration, the failures and radicalization of the Left, and the reasons to vote in November.

He encouraged Floridians to vote by absentee ballot. “In Florida you have an honest system. So vote absentee. Your vote will be counted, it is real.”

President Trump has been very vocal about his disapproval of mail in voting, which is different from the absentee voting encouraged by Eric.

As a reminder, absentee voting is when voters individually request a ballot in the mail, while mail in ballots are sent to every registered voter.

There is controversy on whether or not mail-in ballots can open up elections to fraud. Oregon is an interesting state as all of their elections are conducted solely through mail in voting. The state places stringent checks on double ballots, checking voter identity, and is introducing a new verification system for the upcoming election.

In Florida, where the 2000 presidential election was decided over 500 votes, the security of elections is critical, especially in such a contested election year.

The “Team Trump on Tour” is actually twofold, with one bus launching in Kissimmee with Eric Trump and Florida officials and the other launching in Pennsylvania, the Women for Trump Bus Tour, spearheaded by Lara Trump, Mercedes Schlapp, and Karina Pierson. The pair of buses will travel across the country for three months, helping campaign for Trump 2020.

Many of the stops will be the different local Trump coalition offices, including Latinos for Trump, Black Voices for Trump, Women for Trump, Veterans for Trump, and Asian Americans for Trump. The bus tour will aim to energize party leaders, local candidates, and ground volunteers who work in conjunction with these offices.

The tour dates and locations are unknown more than several days in advance in order to maintain security for the special guests and event locations. It’s likely that the Florida bus will continue its way north, go up through Jacksonville, and continue to the rest of the states. The next destination of the Pennsylvania tour is unknown.

Upcoming events and tickets can be found on the Donald Trump website, which is updated frequently. The campaign also has a host of virtual events featuring different members of the first family and campaign staff.
