The Trump supporters gathered at the famed Miami restaurant Versailles to watch the results roll in. Outside of the restaurant, the crowd was a sea of red "Make America Great Again" hats and American flags alongside cars, pick-up trucks, and even a tractor-trailer rolling by honking in support of Trump's reelection.
A wave of support from Hispanic voters gave President Donald Trump a narrow victory in Florida on Tuesday night, boosting his chances of re-election.
Trump, who won the state in 2016, outperformed his 2016 margins with Florida's Hispanic voters, who made up 19% of all the state's voters. A lot of the swing came in Miami-Dade, the county that contains Florida’s largest Cuban and Venezuelan communities, many of whom are strongly anti-left wing.
Trump and his allies have frequently painted opponent Joe Biden, a moderate Democrat, as either a socialist himself, or in hock to the "radical left." Some Miami voters told Reuters this struck home.
- I'm here to support our president. I think he's done a fine job. Despite the pandemic, despite it all, he's done an incredible job. He's bringing back the economy. He's brought back jobs. He's fixed our trade deals. He's caring about the American people where no other politician has cared, because Donald Trump is not a politician.
- Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump.
- Coming from Cuba, we all know what communism and socialism looks like. We know fake promises when somebody says it, and Joe Biden is basically giving us fake promises.
