The Democratic Candidate for Governor of Florida Just Perfectly Clapped Back at Donald Trump for Slamming Him at His Latest Rally

The Democratic Candidate for Governor of Florida Just Perfectly Clapped Back at Donald Trump for Slamming Him at His Latest Rally


Democratic Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum is firing back at President Donald Trump, who took an indirect swipe at Gillum at a MAGA rally in Montana on Thursday.

"Heard went after me again tonight — in Montana — but still didn't have the courage to @ me by name," Gillum tweeted Thursday night.

Mr. President, my name is Andrew Gillum and I'm going to be the next Governor of Florida because lies and scare tactics don't vote, people do.

During a stump speech for Montana Republican Senate candidate Matt Rosendale, Trump said it would be a "disaster" for Florida if his chosen candidate, Ron DeSantis, loses the race. Trump did not mention Gillum by name.

"Ron for governor," Trump said, plugging DeSantis into a speech for Rosendale.

Florida voters came to Gillum's defense. He's drawing a lot of excitement from the progressive left.

Gillum, the current mayor of Tallahassee, won a surprise upset victory in Florida's Democratic primary race last month and currently leads DeSantis, a three-term Republican Congressman, in the polls. If he wins, Gillum would become Florida's first black governor.

The day after the primary, Trump tweeted that Gillum is "a failed Socialist Mayor...who has allowed crime & many other problems to flourish in his city. This is not what Florida wants or needs!"

Gillum quickly responded to Trump, urging the president to tag him if he's looking to pick a fight.

"What our state and country needs is decency, hope, and leadership. If you agree, join us at . Also, @ me next time, ."

Gillum is not the only gubernatorial candidate Trump attacked in his Thursday speech - without having the courage to use their names.

Trump insulted the entire state of California, where Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom (D) is running on a platform of universal health care for all California residents.

"But I said to myself just common sense, everybody's gonna come in," Trump said of California. "I may even move to California to get free health care," he added. "I may move there."

Newsom responded: "Next time you call me and my policies out, have the guts to @ me and we can have a chat."

Twitter once again tore into Trump and his unpresidential behavior.

Some California voters don't want Trump to move to their state.

Trump also warned attendees that California could "increase in size to 500 million people" if Newsom gets elected.

"California has just become one really large person," Trump added.
