President Donald Trump left his Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach to hold a rally in Melbourne, Florida, on Saturday.
Some people waited since 4:00 a.m. just to get into the event, and the lines were massive:
When the president arrived, the crowd greeting him was in the thousands:
After Trump had taken the stage, he hammered the media for being part of “the corrupt system.” But he stopped his speech after seeing a face he recognized on TV, earlier.
The face belonged to a man who was first in line at the rally, and he’d be waiting to see Trump since 4:00 a.m.
The president pointed him out in the crowd and said:
“I saw this man on television just now. He said I love Trump. Let Trump do what he has to do. That’s my guy right there.”
Then, Trump asked his big-time fan to come up to the stage. He told the Secret Service he wasn’t worried about him, so they let him climb over the barricade.
When the fan got to the stage, the president didn’t shake his hand, he hugged him:
Throwing everyone for a surprise, Trump-style, the Commander-in-Chief then asked the fan, who was shocked to be standing next to him, to say a few words:
Trump spots man in the crowd he saw on TV, calls him up, he speaks.

A powerful way to show the people who gave you votes that you care about them.
