"You do not do that with Andrew Gillum. Have you asked Andrew Gillum why he had CAIR – the Council [on] American Islamic Relations – to Tallahassee in 2016. He spoke to welcome them.
They were an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation terror financing trail – the largest terror financing trial in history. He welcomed them, he thanked them for what they were doing. Why were they in Tallahassee? To protest the anti-BDS legislation that the Legislature was doing, which was protecting our relationship with Israel. The CAIR people got kicked out of the House committees because they were saying all this anti-Semitic stuff. I don't see the media going after Andrew Gillum. What about his relationship with Dream Defenders? They support boycotting Israel. They equate Israel to an apartheid state.
Oh no, [Gillum] gets his zone of protection. So it's a double standard. It's an attempt to create a narrative, and if I have a crowd with 500 people, how the hell am I supposed to know who's in the crowd? That's not a good way. You do not do that with Democrats. You do not look to find the most radical person in the Democrat audience. I'd like you to start doing that, [because] I'll tell you, it's not very difficult. I can find anti-Semites around him. I can find him doing things, but it's almost like we don't want to discuss that."
Unstable and untrustworthy. Floridians deserve so much better than this. https://t.co/YvvjaChY4y— Andrew Gillum (@AndrewGillum) September 24, 2018
