Is he using Air Force One for a campaign rally?

WASHINGTON — After a month of arduous and, at times, turbulent governing, President Donald Trump returned Saturday to what he really loves: Campaigning — and bashing the media.

Trump didn’t declare what, exactly, he was campaigning for in Melbourne, Florida, after flying in from his Mar-a-lago estate, but he was greeted by 9,000 supporters at Orlando-Melbourne International Airport, localaid.

Trump, ready for some relief from the confines of Washington and the limitations of the house he ran to occupy, reverted back to the campaign-style event, basking in what energized him for months during the slog of the presidential campaign: The adulation of his supporters — and attacks on the press.

“The dishonest media, which has published one false story after another, with no sources, even though they pretend they have them — they make them up in many cases, they just don’t want to report the truth and they have been calling us wrong now for two years — they don’t get it, but they are starting to get it,” Trump said Saturday.

Trump touched on a variety of campaign promises he pledged he would enact as president, including calls to bring jobs back to the US and replace Obamacare. He also spoke of the need to keep terrorists out of the US and criticized judges who blocked his executive order on immigration.
“If you have a college education you can understand it. If you have a high school education, you can understand it. If you were a bad student in high school, you can understand it,” Trump said, talking about the original ban.

White House aides took a hands-off approach to Saturday's event, which is being run by Trump's 2016 campaign, Donald J. Trump for President Inc.

If he is using Air Force One, I believe he is in violation of the law - he needs to be using his own private plane if he is indeed campaigning for the next election!
