US President Donald Trump has arrived for what the White House calls “a campaign rally for America” in Florida.
The rally in Melbourne is similar in style to those he held during the election campaign.
The rally comes off the back of a week in which Mr Trump attacked the media in an aggressive press conference.
His national security adviser Michael Flynn also quit earlier in the week. Mr Trump is to interview candidates for the role on Sunday.
On Saturday, President Trump and his wife Melania were greeted by thousands of supporters at the rally in a state he won in November’s election. Protesters have also promised to line the route to the venue.
It is unusual for a sitting president to hold a rally in the style of those held during election campaigns. One supporter, Gene Huber from West Palm Beach, said the decision to hold a rally was not a concern. “No jitters at all,” he told the AFP news agency. “This is a world leader now who’s taking control.”
