Trump: Post-Election, Florida Supporters Have Gone From 'Mean and Vicious' to 'Cool and Mellow'

The president-elect made the comments during a thank-you rally in Orlando.

The Sunshine State was his most visited battleground state during the campaign; he spent 19 days there since clinching the nomination May 26.

Trump kicked off his rally thanking the "incredible" people of Florida, whom he later called out for being "vicious" and violent during the campaign.

"Four weeks ago, just prior to, you people were vicious, violent, screaming, 'We want the wall,' screaming 'Prison, prison, lock her up!' You were going crazy. I mean, you were nasty and mean and vicious, and you wanted to win, right?" he said at the Central Florida Fairgrounds complex. "But now it's much different. Now you're laid back, you're cool, you're mellow, right? You're basking in the glory of victory."

"That's correct, that's his name," Trump said. "I never heard of this guy before."

Days before the election, McMullin tweeted a photo of himself and his running mate, Mindy Finn, holding Egg McMuffin, writing, "McMuffins for McMuFinn. #McMullinFinn."

Trump did not address President Barack Obama's final scheduled news conference or Russia or Aleppo. But for the second time that week, Trump brought up the need for safe zones to protect refugees.

"So we are going to start using our head. We are going to do things right and try to patch that up and try to help people. We'll build safe zones," Trump told his supporters. "We are going to build safe zones in Syria. We are going to build safe zones. And we are going to get the Gulf states to pay for the safe zones, and we'll try on help people. We are going to try, and we are going to get it done."

On Saturday, Trump is expected to make the final stop on his thank-you tour, in Mobile, Alabama.
