Donald Trump opened big at the James L. Knight Center in Miami Friday night, welcoming his "deplorables."

"My opponent slanders you as deplorable and irredeemable," said Trump. 

Trump hit big topics with South Florida's melting pot. He talked about his plan to make a better deal with Cuba, national security, and jobs. 

"My economic agenda can be summed up in three words and you're going to like these three words; jobs, jobs, jobs," added Trump. 

Harriet Epstein to Miami all the way from Wellington because she wants Trump to win. 

"He is a winner and he's one of all of us because if he doesn't win, we all become a loser," said Epstein. 

Trump didn't mention anything about finally putting his birth conspiracy theory with President Obama to rest, but the president and Hillary Clinton were both mentioned several times. 

"We have a president and frankly, Hillary Clinton, who don't use the words radical Islamic terrorism and if you don't know what you're fighting, you're not going to fight it very well and we've proven that," said Trump to his supporters. 

Trump worked the crowd, asking them to put him in the White House in 2016. 

"I'm supporting the best candidate in the world," said Ruth Apnichel from Miami. 

Trump did mention Friday that he has been endorsed by the Fraternal Order of Police. Polls show him leading Florida and up considerably in Ohio, two of the most important states to watch for the presidential election.
