First Week of February Declared As ‘Donald J. Trump Week’ In Florida City

The city of Frostproof, Florida has declared the first week of February as “Donald J. Trump Week” to honor the former Republican president, who remains popular in the area.

The proclamation from the City Mayor cited former President Trump’s record when he was president – including the creation of 1.2 million jobs in the manufacturing and construction sector alone, designating 9,000 opportunity zones and posting unemployment record lows under his administration.

The proclamation also laude his foreign policy which led to no “new wars” and more American troops sent home from overseas deployments.

“Former President Donald J. Trump was overwhelmingly supported, and received 76.43% of the votes in Frostproof, Fla., Precinct 537, won the state of Florida twice and received more votes than any incumbent in United States history,” the city’s Mayor Jon Albert reads.

Donald J. Trump week runs this year from February 1 to 6.

State Rep. Anthony Sabatini, who also proposed renaming US Route 27 as “President Donald J. Trump Highway,” spoke in support of the “Donald J. Trump week” and called the move from Frostproof a “great initiative.”

He also said more cities should follow “our lead” in Central Florida to honor the former President.

“Proud to play a role in supporting this common sense, bi-partisan designation honoring the best president since Calvin Coolidge,” Sabatini wrote on Twitter.

“First city in the nation to do this,” he added on a Facebook post.

Some critics argued, however, that the timing shouldn’t have coincided with the first week of the Black History Month. Nonetheless, his supporters said in defense that “it’s not fair to turn it into a race issue.”

The third Monday of February is designated as “Presidents Day”– popularly recognized as honouring George Washington and Abraham Lincoln but also as a celebration of the birthdays and lives of all US presidents.

Meanwhile, former President Trump currently resides in his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida. Earlier, he got a warm welcome in the state where he plans to spend his time after exiting the White House.

His energetic supporters greeted him waving American flags and holding-up signs welcoming him home as they cheered the former president as his motorcade slowly made its way through the streets of Southern Florida.
