TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — It’s no secret that presidential hopeful Donald Trump speaks his mind, even if it means offending people and stirring up controversy.
The billionaire celebrity and real estate mogul has his eyes set on the White Hose and brought his campaign and abrasive style to Tampa on Friday.
“Everything you have to say now has to be politically correct, it’s disgusting,” Trump said Friday night at the Sun Dome.
Trump was treated like a rock star by a large and enthusiastic crowd in the home state of two of his rivals, Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio. A USF Sun Dome spokesperson said Trump’s rally attracted a record crowd of 10,970.
Trump touched on hot button topics like immigration and jobs. “I’ll be the greatest job-producing president,” he said.
Trump also made jabs at protesters and Jeb Bush, “Jeb Bush is a total stiff,” Trump brazenly declared.
He also took stabs at the media, leading the crowd in a collective “boo” while gesturing at the cameras pointing at him.
So why do so many people like Donald Trump? You might find some of the reasons surprising.
