New York [U.S.], Feb. 19 (ANI): A day after his unprecedented remark branding a certain section of the media as "the enemy of the American people," United States President Donald Trump continued bashing the press in his Florida rally, where he noted that fake stories were being churned against him without any usage of sources whatsoever. According to CNN, Trump did not clarify why he was particularly back in campaigning mode, but was nonetheless greeted by 9,000 supporters at Orlando Melbourne International Airport. "The dishonest media, which has published one false story after another, with no sources, even though they pretend they have them -- they make them up in many cases, they just don't want to report the truth and they have been calling us wrong now for two years -- they don't get it, but they are starting to get it," Trump said Saturday at the rally. Touching a smorgasbord of campaign promises including bringing backs jobs to the U.S. and dismantle Obamacare, Trump also emphasized on the need to keep terrorists out of the US and criticized judges who had blocked his executive order on immigration. "If you have a college education you can understand it. If you have a high school education, you can understand it. If you were a bad student in high school, you can understand it," Trump said, talking about the original ban. During the rally, Trump even invited an excited supporter up to the stage, who was briefly stopped by the Secret Service before the President urged agents to let him come up and address the audience. The man, who could scarcely believe he was meeting the President, seemed visibly thrilled with Trump and even gave him a hug. Quoting sources, the CNN further stated that Trump is feeling "cooped up" in the White House and has been looking to break out and get back to what he was good at- campaigning, adding that Saturday's event could also be a way for Trump to reset his administration after a chaotic month where the President was forced to fire his national security adviser, struggled to roll out his executive order banning travel from seven majority-Muslim countries and strained to explain a growing story about how members of his 2016 campaign made repeated contact with Russian individuals known to US intelligence.
