Clinton backer plans news conference to counter Trump lunch in Miami

@PatriciaMazzei

Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine, a prominent local Hillary Clinton backer, has planned a bit of counter-programming Friday during Donald Trump's roundtable lunch.

Levine will hold a news conference across the street from Miami's Versailles Cuban restaurant "to discuss Trump's record of preying on ordinary Americans -- including workers, contractors, small business owners, Trump University students, and others -- to enrich themselves."

That's a message the Clinton camp has been pushing against Trump in South Florida. On Thursday, other surrogates held a photo op in front of a failed Trump-licensed tower in Fort Lauderdale.

Joining Levine will be Maria Rodriguez, executive director of the Florida Immigrant Coalition.

UPDATE: With Trump canceling his events in the wake of the Dallas police shootings, the Democrats' press conference was also canceled.
