During President Donald Trump’s campaign rally in Melbourne, Fla., Saturday evening, he surprised the thousands in attendance by pulling one man up on stage to say a few words.
“We the people, our movement is the reason why our president of the United States is standing in front of us today,” said Gene Huber, who lined up for the rally at 4 a.m. ET.
Trump said he saw Huber on television while aboard Air Force One and then recognized him in the crowd.
Huber joined “Fox & Friends” Monday morning to talk about the experience.
“I had no clue about this,” said Huber, responding to reports that he was planted in the crowd.
“This happened because I was first on line and our wonderful president happened to see me on the news talking highly about him. There was no set up. There was nothing like that at all.”
Huber said he has a six-foot cardboard cutout of Trump that he salutes every morning.
“It’s a dream come true,” he said Sunday on “Fox & Friends Weekend” about the experience. “I’ve been supporting President Trump for over two years now, and my goal was to be first on line.”
Huber said he supports Trump because the president speaks from the heart, which grabs his attention.
“When President Trump talks, I’m glued to that TV,” Huber said. “He has common sense, he’s smart and he knows what he’s doing.”
