With 49 Days Left until Election Day, For Florida’s Future Launches #DailyDonald Retweet Marathon Hitting Trump, Rubio

September 19, 2016

Plantation, FL – Every morning, from now until Election Day, For Florida’s Future will count down by retweeting Donald Trump’s most offensive tweets since he started using the account @realDonaldTrump in 2009. Each tweet will can be found at @ForOurFutureFL.

Each day, the tweet will remind Florida voters of Donald Trump’s lack of temperament and questionable character as well as his continued support from Florida’s junior senator, Marco Rubio. A darling of the Tea Party in 2010, Rubio is now hoping to ride Trump’s Alt-Right wave to reelection after finding himself in a tough reelection fight after questionable practices that have enriched his family while in office, flip-flopping on multiple issues and clocking the worst attendance record in 50 years for a Florida senator.

Today’s #DailyDonald: “Sadly, because president Obama has done such a poor job as president, you won’t see another black president for generations!”

The Republican senator has vowed to vote for a man who has made offensive and derogatory comments to nearly everyone including women, Latinos, African Americans, and even the disabled. Rubio’s embrace of Trump is particularly worrisome from a Senator who represents a state as diverse as Florida. Trump has called immigrants from “all over” South and Latin America, “not just Mexicans”, “killers and rapists”. He’s called for a “deportation force” to separate 11 million immigrants from their families. He said an American judge was unable to perform his job because he is “a Mexican” and given white supremacists a national bullhorn online. Even white nationalists have called Trump a “glorious leader” for their movement.

Since its launch in 2009, @realDonaldTrump has sent out more than 33,000 tweets, many of them extremely offensive, hypocritical, sexist, bigoted, and disparaging. The #DailyDonald retweet marathon aims to shine a light on the character of the man responsible for the account — Donald J. Trump.

“Each tweet not only reminds Florida voters why Donald Trump is unprepared, unfit and too unhinged to trust with their vote,” said spokesman Blake Williams. “It further begs the question why Marco Rubio is still embracing this guy when so many leading Republicans have put the good of their country and their party first.”
