Trump kicks off 2020 re-election campaign in Orlando

Washington: US President Donald Trump formally kicked off his 2020 re-election campaign at a rally in Orlando, Florida, on Tuesday night.

"And that is why tonight, I stand before you to officially launch my campaign for a second term as president of the United States," Trump told a crowd inside the Amway Center arena.

During his speech, Trump touched on a wide range of topics, including the nation's economy, the administration's immigration policies and trade approaches, and his efforts to remake federal courts.

He also lashed out at, among other things, his political opponents, members of the mainstream media, and the Russia probe, which concluded in March.

Later on Twitter, Trump wrote: "Don’t ever forget - this election is about YOU. It is about YOUR family, YOUR future, & the fate of YOUR COUNTRY. We begin our campaign with the best record, the best results, the best agenda, & the only positive VISION for our Country’s future!"

Trump was elected the 45th president of the United States in 2016, after defeating Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.

He took office on January 20 2017 and filed papers with the Federal Election Commission for his re-election campaign the same day.
