Trump Slams Nelson, Democrats in Florida

President Trump went after Sen. Bill Nelson (D-FL) and the Democratic Party in Nelson’s home state of Florida on Monday, criticizing Democrats’ insistence on raising taxes on American families.

“We didn’t get one Democrat to vote for us, and Senator Nelson was hostile to us,” he told a crowd in Florida. “If for any reason [the Democrats win a majority], they’re going to raise your taxes way up high.”

Trump said that if Democrats tried to repeal the tax cut, he would veto it, but he implored the audience to not let Democrats get that far.

Nelson is currently running for re-election in a state Trump won in 2016. He’ll face popular Gov. Rick Scott (R-FL) in the general election, and Republicans have identified Florida as a potential pickup opportunity.

It’s clear that the president and Republicans want to hammer Nelson for his refusal to give Florida families a tax break.
