Gaetz, Greene kickoff rally in Florida

THE VILLAGES, Fla. (AP) — U.S. Reps. Matt Gaetz and Marjory Taylor Greene, two of the Republican Party’s most controversial figures, kicked off their “America First Rally” roadshow Friday with a Trump-centric revival of sorts for the MAGA faithful at a Florida retirement community. The gathering appeared to be an attempt to position the two conservatives as successors to the former president’s populism. “Tell me, who is your president?” Greene shouted after walking out onto a ballroom stage in front of hundreds of supporters wearing “Trump” T-shirts and “Make America Great Again” red ballcaps. “Trump!” the mask-less crowd of retirees wearing MAGA red yelled back. Joking that he was a “marked man in Congress … but a Florida man,” Gaetz called former President Donald Trump “the undisputed leader of the Republican Party.”
