Florida residents who had their lives torn apart last year by the category-5, Hurricane Michael, were heartened by uplifting comments and promised-relief funding by President Trump, who spoke at a rally in the Florida Panhandle, last week.
So much so, that three Florida radio stations have decided to air hourly excerpts from the President’s speech through the 2020 election.
These radio stations will play at least a snippet of Trump speaking every hour until the end of the 2020 election, their owner said. https://t.co/CqKsqHedmV

The Epoch Times points out the appreciation for Trump’s pledge of relief funds totaling a purported $448 million.

Of course, this news came as a shock and triggered some leftists living in Florida:

Stop him? Private business owners making decisions with their companies… President Trump is the beneficiary of the radio stations’ decision to air his speeches, but he is not demanding or forcing them to do this.
Still, Democrats will continue to whine that the President is a power-hungry Nazi, bent on strong-arming his way into a second term. However, sane Americans see this for what it is, as Fox News rightly points out that Trump is being shown appreciation for his willingness to help a recently devastated community:
“All Trump, all the time?
Not quite, but three radio stations in Florida have vowed to air President Trump’s speeches every hour of every day until the 2020 election.
The stations disclosed the plan after the president spoke last week at a rally in the Florida Panhandle and promised $448 million in relief aid for Florida communities that were devastated by last year’s Category 5 Hurricane Michael.
. . .
Three Bay County stations – WRBA-FM, WKNK-FM and WASJ-FM – said they will broadcast two-minute excerpts of the president’s speeches every hour of every day until the end of the 2020 election, said Samuel Rogatinsky, a Fort Lauderdale-based attorney.
. . .
Rogatinsky’s newly formed company, Gulf Coast Media Inc., purchased the three radio stations from Powell Broadcasting Company, according to the paper. He said the Bay County community was heartened by Trump’s appearance in the neglected area and is on board with the radio stations’ plan.”
The stations’ owner, Samuel Rogatinsky, did throw Democrats a bone, however, as covered by the Orlando Sentinel:
“Rogatinsky told MSN the stations will offer similar airtime to other candidates if requested, to comply with the Federal Communications Commission’s equal time guidelines.
‘Really, we just want to have inspirational type things because the community is so down,’ he told the Orlando Sentinel on Monday. ‘Nobody else is really promising or doing anything. They want to hear what he has to say.'”
This should come as welcome news to the GOP and conservatives, as Florida will be a crucial battleground state, as it always is, in Donald Trump’s bid for another term. Getting more Floridians to hear the President’s uplifting and inspiring words will only serve to help him.
