Trump supporter's moment in the spotlight

Donald Trump invited a supporter up onto the stage at his latest rally, unnerving Secret Service agents whose job it is to protect the US President.

"I wouldn't say Secret Service was thrilled with that ... but we know our people," Mr Trump told the 9000-strong crowd in Melbourne, Florida.

The man, Gene Huber, is a huge fan of Mr Trump, and had been waiting in line for 13 hours.

"We the people, our movement is the reason why our President of the United States is standing here in front of us today," Mr Huber said from the stage.

"When President Trump during the election promised all these things that he was going to do for us, I knew he was going to do this for us."

"A star is born," Mr Trump replied.

Before Mr Huber's interruption, Mr Trump had been on a lengthy tirade aimed at the media - something he's done almost every day since becoming President, whether at rallies or on Twitter.

"The dishonest media, which has published one false story after another, with no sources, even though they pretend they have them - they make them up in many cases, they just don't want to report the truth and they have been calling us wrong now for two years - they don't get it, but they are starting to get it," he told the crowd.

The purpose of the rally, Mr Trump said, was to get his message out without relying on the "corrupt" media.

"Thomas Jefferson, Andrew Jackson and Abraham Lincoln - many of our greatest presidents fought with the media and called them out, often times on their lies," Mr Trump said.

"When the media lies to the people, I will never let them get away with it. I will do whatever I can so they don't get away with it. They have their own agenda and their agenda is not your agenda."

The rally comes a day after he labelled the mainstream media in the US "the enemy of the American People", echoing words by disgraced former President Richard Nixon, who once said: "The press is the enemy, the establishment is the enemy, the professors are the enemy."

Only right-wing Fox News, of the mainstream US news outlets, was spared his condemnation.

At the rally, Mr Trump also took time to describe the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) with Australia, New Zealand and nine other Pacific nations as a "job-killing disaster".

Mr Trump gloated how he withdrew the US from the TPP soon after his inauguration.

"I followed through on my promise to withdraw from the job-killing disaster known as the Trans-Pacific Partnership," Mr Trump said to loud cheers.
