The president addressed thousands of supporters Tuesday night at an event meant to boost two Republican candidates before the August 28 primary in the battleground state.
Before the rally, the former fashion designer introduced the President in a speech at Tampa Bay Technical High School as part of "workforce development week", in which the father-daughter pair are visiting community colleges and hosting numerous events to do with vocational education reform.
Trump said people watched his rally on TVs outside the Fairgrounds.

But on Sunday, Trump reversed course in a surprise tweet: "I would be willing to "shut down" government if the Democrats do not give us the votes for Border Security, which includes the Wall!" "I have kept my promises". It's a testament not only to Trump's high popularity among Republican voters but also reveals the campaign's belief that Trump's supporters are enough for victory on August 28. "Name is Bill Nelson", Trump said Tuesday night. It helps bind him to supporters who feel bitter about Washington institutions they believe have cast them cruelly aside.
While Governor Rick Scott was scheduled to appear with the president this afternoon, he has drastically curtailed both his appearances and praise for Donald Trump since the U.S. Senate race began heating up.
