Political differences bring a pair of billionaire Palm Beach neighbors to Tampa

President-elect Donald Trump and billionaire Jeff Greene from a video clip that Greene says was a heated December 2016 conversation about Greene’s support for Hillary Clinton.

President Donald Trump will be in Tampa later today to visit a technical high school and then hold a political rally with his chosen candidate for governor, Ron DeSantis.

Democrat Jeff Greene’s campaign bus features a “Trump’s Worst Nightmare” slogan.

DeSantis’ rise in Republican primary polls show the power of Trump in a GOP primary.

But Trump is also a factor in Florida’s Democratic primary for governor — particularly for his Palm Beach neighbor, fellow billionaire and dues-paying Mar-a-Lago Club member, Jeff Greene.

Greene, who has made his pledge to “stand up to Trump” a centerpiece of his Democratic bid for governor, plans to hold a “Stand Up To Trump” event in a designated protest space at the Florida State Fairgrounds where Trump will appear.

Greene planned to arrive in Tampa Monday night as part of a statewide bus tour. Greene’s bus includes the slogan “Trump’s Worst Nightmare.”
