Before the rally, President Trump will visit Tampa Bay Technical High School for a roundtable discussion on Workforce Development in Tampa. The roundtable discussion is scheduled for 5:50 p.m.

PROTESTERS GATHER

A handful of protesters gathered outside the fairgrounds expo hall in Tampa, Florida, to protest President Donald Trump's visit hours before his scheduled arrival.

One of the early protesters was Democratic gubernatorial candidate and Florida billionaire Jeff Greene. He parked a bus with the words "Trump's worst nightmare" outside the venue Tuesday, drawing more than a few heckles and taunts.

He says he wants Trump "to see that not everyone believes in what he does here in Florida."

Another protester held a sign showing Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin and brought a speaker to play The Beatles' "Back in the U.S.S.R." repeatedly.

The song mixed with the taunts from people in cars and a man screaming into a loudspeaker about Jesus.

Nearby, two men held a large Confederate flag.
