Andy Card, the former White House chief of staff under President George W. Bush, was in Tampa Bay Wednesday to give a keynote address at the the annual State of the Port event at Port Tampa Bay. 

Card spoke about the upcoming inauguration of President Elect Donald Trump: 

"When Donald Trump takes that oath, he is vowing to preserve and defend the Constitution on the biggest stage in the world." 

"I pray that you all pray for our president every day. I hope none of you pray against him because he'll be our president." 

"He will have a plan to lead this country. By April 30, after his first 100 days in office, he will be judged for his plan up until that point."
