Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said Thursday that President Obama should stop campaigning for Hillary Clinton and get back to work, after Mr. Trump apparently caught a glimpse of Air Force One while in Florida.

“I just left, by the way, Miami, and in leaving, I see Air Force One,” Mr. Trump said at a campaign stop in Jacksonville. “I said to myself, ‘I wonder who that could be.’

“And it’s our president,” Mr. Trump said, prompting a round of boos. “And he’s down here campaigning for Crooked Hillary. Why isn’t he back in the office, sometimes referred to as the Oval Office? Why isn’t he back in the White House bringing our jobs back?

“This guy ought to be back in the office working,” he said. “He’s not going to be there very long, thank goodness, but he ought to be back in the office working.

“We don’t win anymore as our country,” he said. “We don’t win with our military. We don’t win on trade. This guy ought to get back to the office and stop campaigning.”

Mr. Trump’s campaign stop followed an appearance by Mr. Obama on behalf of Mrs. Clinton at Florida International University in Miami earlier in the day.

Recent polls have shown Mr. Trump and Mrs. Clinton running virtually neck and neck in the all-important Sunshine State.
