Joined by his wife and the first lady Melania, his son Don Jr., Vice President Mike Pence, and second lady Karen Pence; President Trump formally launched his run for a second term at a rally in Orlando.
President Trump urged his supporters to “keep this team in place” for four more years. The Republican president made his case before thousands of supporters at a rally in Florida, calling the state “my second home”.
“Tonight I stand before you to officially launch my campaign for a second term as president of the United States,” Mr Trump told supporters. “I promise you I will never ever let you down. We are going to keep America great again,” the president spoke in the Orlando event on Tuesday night, in a reworking of his familiar slogan.
Florida is a key battleground state and one that Mr Trump narrowly won in 2016. He filed his 2020 paperwork the day after his January 2017 inauguration, and he’s been holding regular campaign-style rallies across key battleground states ever since.
During his roughly 80-minute speech, Mr Trump reiterated key themes of his successful 2016 campaign.
He pledged to continue a crackdown against illegal immigration, one day after tweeting that US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) would soon begin removing “millions of illegal migrants” from the country.
Presidential Elections are due in USA in 2020 and Donald Trump faces a lieu of Democrat candidates who are also in the news.
Scores of Trump supports could be seen outside the venue in their signature red caps with the motto ‘MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN’.
