Trump begins '20 re-election bid, raises $24.8m on day one

Friday, 21 Jun, 2019

The President of the United States Donald trump officially announced his intention to seek re-election in 2020, using brought him the success the slogan of the greatness of America.

The US President also pledged to prepare the way to land American astronauts on the surface of Mars as he launched his 2020 re-election campaign.

Political strategist Jim Messina, who organized former President Barack Obama's reelection campaign, told Bennett that Trump's reelection campaign lacks "any sort of general-election messaging". His campaign has spent millions of dollars on online advertising on platforms like Facebook and Google to find potential small donors, an investment that appeared to pay off handsomely Tuesday.

It dwarfs what the top Democratic contenders in the 2020 White House primary raised over the course of the first three months of this year.

There were no substantial new ideas or plans for the future in Trump's almost 80-minute speech in the Orlando arena, where the crowd formed a sea of Trump campaign red baseball caps, chanting "USA" and "Four More Years".

John Santos from the Democratic National Committee said that his party will continue to call him out on his failures and broken promises to the American people. (Fox News, the only major cable news network to cover Trump's rally, drew 5 million viewers.) He also said he has to get his own messages out via Twitter and other means because the mainstream news media has "lost credibility". A boisterous crowd of thousands of Trump supporters, many in red hats, began gathering outside the arena on Monday and spent Tuesday braving downpours and listening to a cover band as part of a "45 Fest" the campaign organized to energize the crowd.

Trump beat all three combined, including the front-runner Biden, whom he bested by almost fourfold.

"With all the fervor of our hearts, with all the forces - physical and spiritual - we will strive to ensure that America once again become great, and we really will ensure the greatness of America, said trump". His new one - "Keep America Great" - was greeted with boisterous cheers. "Trump is known for thinking ahead when it comes to political branding; he trademarked "Make America Great Again" on November 19, 2012".

Sanders raised the most money of any Democrat in the first quarter of this year, $18.2 million, followed by Harris ($12 million) and O'Rourke ($9.4 million).

Joe Biden is the Democratic presidential front-runner.

But his comments appeared to allude to the shift to the left triggered by the success of self-proclaimed democratic socialist Bernie Sanders, who lost only narrowly to Hillary Clinton in the race to be the party's 2016 candidate.
