President Donald Trump is scheduled to speak to a campaign rally crowd in Panama City, Florida, two years before the election. But his pre-rally tweet has one reporter mocking him.


As the president was landing in Florida, he or his staff tweeted out a photo of the rally crowd proclaiming: "See everyone in 30 minutes!" He then tagged Fox News along with hosts Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity.

CNN's Jim Acosta noted the tags, remarking that the translation of the tweet was Trump's instruction to carry his speech live to the Fox News audience throughout the entirety of the hosts two shows.

Trump's rally begins at 8 p.m. EST and you can watch it live here.
