President Donald Trump's trip to Florida features separate addresses to a meeting of Jewish Americans and members of Florida's Republican Party.

The trip on Saturday comes hours after Trump celebrated Iran's decision to free a Chinese-American scholar from Princeton University who had been held since 2016. The U.S., in turn, released an Iranian scientist in its custody. Trump is scheduled to deliver the keynote address at the Israeli American Council's national summit, taking place in Hollywood, Florida. The council is financially backed by one of Trump's top supporters, billionaire Sheldon Adelson.
