The claim: Image of a large crowd is of a Trump rally in Florida 

As the presidential race enters its final stretch, an image purporting to show a massive rally for President Donald Trump in Florida — a major battleground state — has surfaced on social media. 

The claim follows Trump’s rally at Ocala International Airport on Oct. 16, where over 5,000 people were in attendance. 

“Trump rally in Florida, I don’t care what the polls say!” reads an Oct. 17 Facebook post accompanied by a photo of thousands of people on a bridge near water. 

“Ocala…Trump rally!” reads another post that has been shared around 800 times.
