Almost immediately after President Donald Trump was inaugurated in 2017, he expressed his intention to run for re-election in 2020 — but he had yet to officially announce his candidacy.
Now, the time has come. Trump’s 2020 campaign will formally kick off at one of the president’s trademark rallies later this month, according to the president himself.
Keeping America great
The president took to Twitter on Friday to share the details of how and when his 2020 re-election campaign will officially commence.
“I will be announcing my Second Term Presidential Run with First Lady Melania, Vice President Mike Pence, and Second Lady Karen Pence on June 18th in Orlando, Florida,” Trump wrote.
Trump included in his tweet a link for supporters to register for tickets.
While the start of Trump’s re-election campaign was highly anticipated by the president’s legion of supporters, it wasn’t as welcomed among Democrats and liberal media figures who are insistent that Trump will soon be headed out.
Those left-leaning talking heads have fully invested themselves in the now-debunked narratives alleging that President Trump not only colluded with Russia to win in 2016, but also obstructed special counsel Robert Mueller’s two-year investigation into those false allegations.
But Mueller was never obstructed, and in fact was granted as much time and cooperation as was needed to complete his probe. Still, he found no evidence of alleged collusion and insufficient evidence to support an obstruction charge — conclusions that some Democrats and media figures have refused to accept.
Indeed, they’ve spent the last two years hoping that the combination of slanderous investigations and constant negative media coverage — including blatantly false “fake news” — would lead to Trump’s impeachment or resignation in disgrace, a hope they are unwilling to relinquish in spite of the reality around them.
Meanwhile, roughly two dozen Democrats are vying for their party’s nomination to take on Trump in 2020, despite the odds being stacked against them.
Among those are names like Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, and Elizabeth Warren — all of whom have a tough road ahead of them if they plan on winning next year.
As of now, the odds are strongly in favor of Trump being re-elected in 2020, given historical trends, his incumbency, his solid base of support, and, of course, the soaring economy.
His race to remain in the White House will soon be officially underway.
