GOP Presidential candidate Donald Trump landed at the Collier County fairgrounds Sunday in his personal helicopter.

Trump spoke to several thousand people, many of whom gathered 6 hours before the candidate arrived.

"It's great to be back in Naples, I have so many friends here."

It wasn't long before Trump went on the offensive against his Democratic challenger Hillary Clinton. He slammed her on everything from her foreign policy, to the rise of ISIS. He even "hammered" Hillary on destroying her phone.

"She got rid of 13 phones, with a hammer!"

Trump told the crowd about his "contract" with America, which includes cutting taxes, beefing up the military and tightening the borders.

"We're letting people into our country, we don't know who they are," said Trump.  "Radical Islamic terrorists right through our front door, stamping their visas, approved, approved."

Trump's plan hit close to home, he said he would shore up the Herbert Hoover dike at Lake Okeechobee, and protect the Everglades.  He reflected on his helicopter flight over the glades Sunday.

"When you look at those Gators, you look at those water Moccasins, you say wow, I'd better have a good helicopter."

But with most polls showing Trump trailing the 16 days left until the election are crucial in determining if Trump will have a shot at implementing his ideas.  But the billionaire politician claims Clinton has an unfair advantage.

"Without the media, she doesn't have a chance."

Trump appearances scheduled in St. Augustine and Tampa Monday.
