Trump says Florida re-election rally will rock

President Trump recently took aim at his Democrat opponents, while officially kicking off his 2020 bid for re-election. The choice was "Make America Great" vs. "Keep America Great". They only care about their own political power.

Republican Party Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel tweeted Wednesday morning that Trump had raised $24.8 million in less than 24 hours for his reelection.

Trump's campaign operation raised a whopping $24.8 million in less than 24 hours amid his 2020 re-election launch in Florida on Tuesday - a figure that blows past what any of the Democratic candidates raised in the entire first quarter.

On Tuesday night in Orlando, Florida, Trump complained that he had been "under assault from the very first day" of his presidency by a "fake news media" and "illegal witch hunt" that had tried to keep him and his supporters down. Vendors sold water, as well as pins, hats and T-shirts with slogans including "Trump 2020" and "ICE ICE Baby", a reference to the law enforcement agency tasked with enforcing immigration laws.

At one point, Trump asked the large rally crowd to clap the loudest for the campaign theme they favored the most.

"He said he'd make America great again and that's exactly what we've done", Vice President Mike Pence said in his introduction.

Alex Fuentes, a municipal diesel mechanic, wore a shirt that said "Make Democrats cry again".

While speaking to supporters in Orlando Tuesday, the president slammed "radical Democrats" who he said are "driven by hatred".

Ren, 74, said Huawei planned to cut production by $30 billion over the next two years to ride out the storm. Huawei has said its work does not pose any threats and that it is independent from the Chinese government.

On at least a few occasions, President Trump supporters did enter the crowd resulting in a few shouting matches.

"The goal is to get under his skin", said Mark Offerman, the blimp's handler.

Noble's mother was at the Trump rally while he was at the anti-Trump protest. And in 2019 he said windmills cause cancer (they don't).

Still, he gave lip service to the hype, telling the Orlando crowd he was standing "before you to officially launch my campaign for a second time". As they walked away, a man from the Proud Boys group said, "We're just Americans".

The Orlando Sentinel voted for not voting for Trump in 2020.

Trump aides scheduled the kickoff near the four-year anniversary of the day when the former reality television star and NY tabloid fixture launched his longshot campaign for president with a famous escalator ride in front of a crowd that included paid actors.

From stopping taxpayer funding of abortion and of experimentation involving aborted baby body parts, to protecting conscience rights, to calling out extremist Democrats who support abortion on demand through birth and even infanticide, to his two outstanding Supreme Court justices and transformation of the federal courts, President Trump has beyond delivered on his promises to the pro-life voters who propelled him to victory in 2016.
