President Donald Trump voted in person at an early voting site Saturday morning in West Palm Beach.

“I voted for a guy named Trump,” the president said with a smile to reporters after walking out of the closed door room he used to fill out his ballot.

The president also again used the moment to question the integrity of mail in ballots.

“Very strict by the rules, very secure, when you send in your ballot it could never be like that,” President Trump said.

Back in August the president used a mail in ballot to vote in the primary in Palm Beach County.

The president arrived at the Palm Beach County Library on Summit Boulevard just before 10 am, bringing early voting by the public to a brief halt.


“Our goal really was to get it going as quickly as possible because we wanted the least amount of disruptions to voters,” said Wendy Sartory Link, Supervisor of Elections.

The atmosphere outside the library was like a campaign rally for most of the morning with a couple hundred people waving Trump flags and signs.

Some supporters of Joe Biden objected to scene as voters were still trying to make their way into the early voting site.

“Look you got a huge truck singing Trump songs and actually having Trump speak by tape in a voting area and beyond the 150 feet, everyone could hear it, so that’s electioneering in my opinion,” said Sarah Quinlan.

The President left quickly the same way he arrived, with his supporters only catching a glimpse of him as the motorcade drove out to PBIA where President Trump boarded Air Force One for a rally in North Carolina.
