A protester climbed a crane at a construction site near the campus of Florida International University on Monday morning ahead of a speech by President Donald Trump.

According to local news outlet WSVN, the man was wearing a helmet, climbing gear and straps. He displayed a banner and American flag.

Police have asked construction workers to clear the area.

“I was setting up my station and they were telling everybody on the deck to get out and then next thing you know they came to the bottom telling everybody to get out the site,” one worker told WSVN. “We left all our tools and everything. We have no idea what the guy wants.”

Trump is expected to address the ongoing turmoil in Venezuela and express support for opposition leader Juan Guaidó during his speech.

Scaramucci accused the president of playing to his base, in a way that has dangerous manifestations: for the president and the country.

“He’s blowing very hard on a dog-whistle that every ethnic group that’s landed in the United States has had to hear,” Scaramucci told the BBC.

“I don’t think the president is a racist, but here’s the thing: if you continue to say and act in that manner, then we all have to look at him and say, ‘OK, well, maybe you weren’t a racist, but now you’re turning into one.'”

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) on Tuesday issued an unusual defense of President Donald Trump's racist remarks against four Democratic congresswomen by comparing the president to an internet troll.
