Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump will hold a rally in Fort Myers, Florida this afternoon.
Trump will speak from the Germain Arena in Fort Myers beginning at 3:00 p.m. Eastern Time. The event can be viewed in the embedded YouTube player via Right Side Broadcasting.
During the speech, Trump will almost certainly be discussing terrorism and the recent bombing in Chelsea. On Saturday, an explosion occurred in New York City that injured 29 people, although none of the injuries were serious and there was no fatalities. Pipe bombs were later discovered near a train station in New Jersey. Police are seeking Ahmad Khan Rahami in connection with the attack.
Over the weekend, Trump tweeted that after incidents like these, the United States has to “change the playbook.” It’s unclear exactly what Trump means by this; when asked to clarify on Fox and Friends, the Republican candidate only said that the U.S. needs to “knock the hell out of them.”
Trump has also discussed his strict immigration policy proposal after this bombing. He has previously called for a suspension of immigration from countries with a “proven history of terrorism.” Ahmad Khan Rahami was originally born in Afghanistan.
“The immigration laws of the United States give the president powers to suspend entry into the country of any class of persons,” Trump said shortly after the Pulse nightclub shooting in June. “I will use this power to protect the American people. When elected, I will suspend immigration from areas of the world where there is a proven history of terrorism against the United States, Europe or our allies, until we fully understand how to end these threats.”
Trump’s other rallies for the remainder of the week will be held in North Carolina, Ohio and Pennsylvania, three key states in the 2016 election.
