"I will protect you, I will defend you, and I will fight for you with every ounce of energy and conviction that I have," @POTUS tells seniors.
"As president, I'm deeply aware that America’s 54 million seniors have borne the heaviest burden of the China Virus," adds @POTUS.
"My message to America’s seniors today is one of optimism, confidence and hope," says @POTUS in #Florida. "Your sacrifice has not been in vain. ... We are rounding that turn. Don't listen to the cynics and angry partisans..."
"I'm moving heaven and earth to safeguard our Seniors from the China Virus, to deliver life-saving therapies in record time, and to distribute a safe and effective vaccine BEFORE the end of the year."
"Seniors will be the first in line for the vaccine and we will soon be ending this pandemic," adds @POTUS.
Talking about a reduced fatality rate for #COVID19 in the US, @POTUS tells audience, which cheers: "Well, I'm here I'll tell ya."
"We cannot allow unscientific, panic-driven, fear-based policies to deny our children and grandchildren their future and their dreams," says @realDonaldTrump in #Florida.
"We're leading in the state of Florida, by perhaps a lot," says @realDonaldTrump. (Here's a look at the polling average:…)
"As we gather today, seniors are under threat from a radical left movement that seeks to destroy the American way of life," says @POTUS. "Sleepy Joe can do nothing about it."
"Their plan to delay the vaccine, delay therapies and prolong the pandemic will cost thousands and thousands of lives. It will be horrifying for our country," according to @realDonaldTrump.
"As long as I'm president, no one will lay a hand on your Medicare or your Social Security," pledges @realDonaldTrump in #Florida speech targeted at senior citizens (with some comments also directed at "suburban women.")
"I had somebody going totally crazy last night," says @POTUS of @SavannahGuthrie "Another evening in paradise, I call it."
"Socialist healthcare plans always end up denying care and coverage to the sick and the elderly in order to control costs," according to @POTUS. "We must not let them bring this lethal and deadly agenda to America."
"Big, fat ugly socialized medicine," adds @realDonaldTrump.
"It's a crime family," says @realDonaldTrump of the Bidens.
"It's an organized crime family as far as I'm concerned," he adds doubling down.
"He wasn't looking too good last night," says @realDonaldTrump of @JoeBiden on @ABC. "I couldn't watch. It was too painful."
Remarks by @POTUS to seniors conclude and the 'YMCA' closing song plays.
"This is the most people your pooler has been indoors with since March," notes @tamarakeithNPR.

"We won Macon Georgia. We're going to win it again," begins @realDonaldTrump. "We're running against perhaps the worst candidate in the history of presidential politics." Image

Motorcade of @POTUS has arrived at the Caloosa Sound Convention Center and Amphitheater, reports radio pooler @tamarakeithNPR, who notes "the route was lined with A LOT supporters with flags and signs. Some of the signs were home made." #Election2020 #Florida
"There was one guy vigorously waving a Biden campaign sign and two men with Biden flags. But this is an overwhelmingly pro-Trump showing. There are people packed together near the convention center, some with giant Trump heads," adds @tamarakeithNPR.

On @NBCNews 'town hall' program, @POTUS says "I had a little bit of a temperature" during his bout with the #coronavirus and "the lungs were perhaps a little bit infected."
"After the debate...a day or so, I tested positive," says @POTUS, declining to answer @SavannahGuthrie question on whether he took a #COVID19 test on the day of the debate.
"Possibly I did. Possibly I didn't," adds @POTUS. "I was in great shape for the debate."
