VERO BEACH, Fla. — Donald Trump Jr. campaigned for his father Wednesday evening in Vero Beach.

The eldest son of President Donald Trump hosted a "Make America Great Again" rally at the Indian River County Fairgrounds.

It was the last of his three stops throughout Florida on Wednesday.

Taking the stage in front of nearly 2,000 people, Trump Jr. asked voters to give the president "four more years."

"It's gonna be a landslide," one supporter told WPTV's Meghan McRoberts. Trump's gonna win."

Trump Jr. spoke for about 30 minutes, taking aim at Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, social media censorship, career politicians and other issues to fire up supporters.

"I mean, these are people (who) are excited that you have a president (who is) finally fighting for America," Trump Jr. told McRoberts in an exclusive one-on-one interview after the rally.

Trump Jr. said he's hoping for a "fair election."

He also touted his father's tax plan.

"The guy (who) built the strongest economy America has ever seen is the guy (who) can do it again," Trump Jr. said.
