“It has been my honor to serve as First Lady for the past two years and I am excited to do it for six more,” First Lady Melania Trump said Tuesday night in Florida.
President Donald Trump officially kicked off his 2020 re-election campaign from the Amway Center in Orlando Tuesday, touting his record in the White House and plans for the future of America. “Thank you Orlando, what a turnout,” President Trump said as he stepped to the lectern. “I’m thrilled to be back in my second home…it’s the great state of Florida.”
“Our future has never looked brighter or sharper,” Trump said. “The fact is the American Dream is bigger and sharper and better than ever before.” Trump went after Democrats and accused them of wanting to “erase the vote” of those who supported him against Hillary Clinton in 2016.
“They want to destroy you and they want to destroy our country as we know it,” Trump said.
In typical fashion, he also went after the media.
“CNN sucks!” the crowd chanted. “Four more years!” President Trump touted his record on jobs, manufacturing, illegal immigration and the Supreme Court. “They didn’t just try to win, they tried to destroy him with vicous and false accusations,” Trump said about Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
“We are building the wall, we’re going to have over 400 miles built by next year,” he said. “This election isn’t merely a verdict on the progress we’ve made, it’s a verdict on the un-American conduct of those who want to undermine democracy and undermine you.”
“We’re going to Keep America Great, which is why I stand before you tonight to announced my second term as President of the United States,” he continued. “I can promise you that I will never, ever let you down. I won’t.”
Trump also officially introduced his 2020 campaign slogan: Keep America Great.
“From the very first day I walked through the doors at the White House, I never forget who sent me there. You did,” he said.
