President Donald Trump kicks off 2020 campaign

President Donald Trump kicks off 2020 campaign

"Trump has been the best president we've ever had", said Ron Freitas, a retired Merchant Marine and registered Democrat from the Orlando area who sat in a lawn chair.

In 2016, Melania Trump came down the escalator ahead of her husband. He's also joined by a booming economy, that's followed by the booming Iran war drums.

All the while, he groused to aides and advisers that cable TV networks had largely stopped airing his campaign rallies live as they did in 2016, two sources familiar with his comments said, to the point that aides contemplated ways to garner media interest in Trump's rallies.

Local Democrats and activists held their own rally Tuesday, the Win With Love Rally, about a half mile up the street from the President's announcement next to the Stonewall Bar in Downtown Orlando. A snake slithering out of the swamp for the first time would have thought Trump was running against Hillary Clinton again.

His deputy campaign manager Kate Bedingfield added in a statement that the country "cannot afford four more years of Trump".

Konduga has been repeatedly targeted by suicide bombers from a Boko Haram faction loyal to longtime leader Abubakar Shekau. An estimated 27,000 people have been killed in its attacks which have forced 1.8 million people to flee their homes.


Although the exact numbers aren't yet available - the 2020 Trump campaign has yet to file any fundraising paperwork for the second quarter of 2020, and it may be months before any FEC filings reflect accurate numbers for June 18th's kickoff - at least one reporter from ABC News was able to corroborate the approximate amounts.

Currently, Trump Democratic opponents Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders lead Trump in Florida. In the high-80s heat, some women wore "Make American Great Again" bathing suits.

He has continued holding his signature "Make America Great Again" rallies in the months since, while also raising millions to fund a more professional, far larger campaign operation, with about 80 staffers now working at the campaign's Virginia headquarters, in NY and in key states across the country. There could have been a third choice- "No Coughing while Trump is Talking". Trump was en route to Orlando, Fla., to announce his bid for re-election.

As the editorial board noted, the Sentinel has long endorsed Republican candidates for president except for the elections held in 2004, 2008, and 2016. "After 2½ years we've seen enough".

Voter turnout for 2020 is expected to increase to a level not seen since the early 1900′s. "Not so for Trump, who claimed in 2017 that he lost the popular vote because millions of people voted illegally (they didn't). We are going on to victory", Trump said.
