SUNRISE, FLA. (WSVN) - Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump addressed the National Association of Home Builders at the Fontainebleau in Miami Beach, Thursday.
Trump made an appearance at the National Association of Home Builders’ mid-year meeting at the popular hotel, at 10:30 a.m., just one day after his appearance at a Trump campaign rally in Sunrise, Wednesday.
At the meeting, Trump reiterated his attack on President Obama. “I’ve made a fortune with China, but they don’t respect us,” said Trump. “They don’t like our president. Putin doesn’t like our president, has no respect for Obama whatsoever. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could actually get along with Russia?”
Nearly 90 minutes late, Wednesday evening, Trump walked out on stage at his rally to thunderous applause.
Almost immediately after he approached the podium, he went into an indictment of Hillary Clinton and alleged newly released e-mails that appeared to show aides arranging a meeting between a Clinton Foundation donor and an ambassador.
“So what came out yesterday, reported today, right, pay for play, cold, pay for play, right, you’re not allowed to do it, it’s illegal,” said Trump to the crowd.
According to the Associated Press, Trump even went so far as to accuse President Barack Obama of being the “founder of ISIS.”
“ISIS is honoring President Obama,” said Trump. “He’s the founder of ISIS. He’s the founder of ISIS. I would say the co-founder would be crooked Hillary Clinton, co-founder.”
The rally was occasionally interrupted with chants and an incident where a protester had a drink poured over his head.
There was also at least one shoving match with another protester. Trump then asked the crowd, “Is there any place better than a Trump rally for fun?”
Those two protesters were arrested and reportedly charged with disorderly conduct.
After the rally, Wednesday night, the GOP presidential nominee arrived in Doral with his motorcade at the Trump National Doral Hotel where he spent the night.
