In Ocala, #Florida, several thousand people crammed together welcoming @POTUS for a political rally 17 days before #Election2020.
Some without masks in the crowd.
A view of the crowd via print pooler @robcrilly.
"Early voting starts on Monday. We're gonna have a red wave, it's called -- a red wave," says @realDonaldTrump. "We will have a red wave the likes of which they've never seen and that includes 4 years ago."
During the TV town hall events, @JoeBiden is "constantly getting questions like you're talking to a child" while he gets "boom, boom," says @realDonaldTrump.
US soldiers "all coming back" from overseas except for some where there's oil, says @POTUS.
"Now we're coming back from the plague," says @POTUS. #CoronavirusUSA
"The Biden family is a criminal enterprise" and it's being "covered up by the media and big tech," repeats @realDonaldTrump at rally in Ocala, Florida.
"We're not just running against Joe Biden. We're running against the left wing media and we're running against big tech,' adds @realDonaldTrump.
"A lot of people are looking now at big bad tech," continues @realDonaldTrump.
"Silicon Valley and these guys are 99 percent behind the Democrats," according to @realDonaldTrump. "I don't need their money and I don't want their money."
"You know the polls came out today and they were very good," says @realDonaldTrump. "They don't report 'em." #Election2020
"One more defeat and they're going to accept it," says @POTUS of @TheDemocrats, who he contends are actually "Socialists or Communists."
"Suburban women like Donald Trump because they like safety and security" and don't want low income housing built next door, says @POTUS at rally.
"I think we're gonna win #Minnesota" because of @Ilhan. "She hates our country. She comes from a place that doesn't even have a government...and comes here and tells us how to run our country."
She "married her brother or something and came in here illegally," continues @POTUS about @Ilhan.
"We want to be where we were 7 months ago," says @POTUS.
"It's the enemy of the people -- our media," says @POTUS. "It's very, very dangerous what they do."
"We want Hope," says @realDonaldTrump, calling up Hope Hicks, counselor to the president, to the stage at a campaign rally.

"I have stage fright," she says and quickly leaves the podium.

"She tested positive and got better so fast...young and strong," declares @POTUS.
“We can use the same microphone now” (because they both had #COVID19), notes Hicks.
The presidency "is the best investment I ever made because it's an investment in our country," declares @realDonaldTrump. "I'm only doing it because of you. We're doing it together."
"Even without the vaccine, the pandemic is going to end," claims @POTUS, who then remarks this comment will make headlines tomorrow because the media is "crazy."
"Hey Ron, are we going to win this state, please?" asks @POTUS.

If he doesn't win #Florida, @realDonaldTrump vows he'll find a way to "fire" @GovRonDeSantis.
"Make America Great Again Again -- but I don't want to do it a third time," says @POTUS.
"I got an emergency call today" that @BarackObama is going to start campaigning for @JoeBiden, says @POTUS. "He knows what's going on up here with Joe...He refused to endorse him."
"We have some highly over-rated generals and we have some great ones," says @POTUS of the US military.
Pointing to a 100-year-old veteran in the rally crowd, @POTUS remarks: "He looks better than I do."
"I have the same exact plane at home," says @realDonaldTrump admiring a 757 jet in Ocala, #Florida.
"Keep your eyes open when you see these ballots coming in," says @POTUS.
"Get out and vote," concludes @realDonaldTrump at Ocala, #Florida political rally.

"Seventeen days from now we're going to win the state of Michigan" and four more years in the @WhiteHouse, says @POTUS at start of his outdoor airport rally in @MuskegonCounty. #Election2020 Image
"You got to get your governor to open up your state...and get your schools open," @POTUS tells the cheering crowd.

"Lock her up," chants the crowd referring to @GovWhitmer.

"Lock 'em all up," responds @realDonaldTrump.
In @MuskegonCounty, which has a population of just under 175,000, more than 1,700 people have tested positive for the #coronavirus and case numbers are steadily increasing, according to the county's public health department.

"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."
"Crowd looks smaller than Ocala," reports print pooler @robcrilly. "Probably still a good couple of thousand in attendance (very rough estimate). There are a few people at the back wearing masks, but crowd is largely maskless."
"The Biden family is a criminal enterprise," remarks @realDonaldTrump for the third time today.

"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..."

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.
A look at the crowd inside for the seniors event, awaiting @POTUS.

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."
