Trump Set to Launch 2020 Campaign Tuesday 6-18-19

He has staged dozens of rallies, stashed millions in the bank and hurled Twitter insults at potential foes. But President Trump’s re-election bid officially starts on Tuesday.

Ever the showman, Mr. Trump is seizing the opportunity to hold a splashy “announcement”—a mega-rally in Orlando, Fla.—more than two years after making clear he would seek a second term. A Trump campaign official said today they have received over 100,000 RSVPs from people who plan to attend the ‘mega-rally’ kicking off the Trump 2020 campaign “Promised Made - Promises Kept”.

The Orlando event is expected to include first lady Melania Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and his wife, Karen Pence, as well as the president’s adult children, said people familiar with the planning. It has been in the works for more than six weeks and is likely to usher in a more active campaign schedule.

“Obama and Bush didn’t enjoy campaigning as much as Trump. They were very much consumed with world affairs,” said presidential historian Douglas Brinkley, a Rice University professor.
Said Mr. Brinkley of Trump: “He sees himself as a leader of a movement (Make America Great Again). He hunkers back down into the movement when he has a chance.”

3. "Please accept this letter as my Form 2 for the 2020 election," Trump wrote

the Federal Election Commission on Jan. 20, 2017.

What’s a “Form 2”? Bureaucratic parlance for a politician declaring one’s candidacy ...

Since his inauguration, Trump has conducted at least 57 political rallies — funded in part by his campaign and not official White House business. All but a half-dozen took place in states he won in 2016, allowing him to bolster his bases of support ...
