Great for America - a big win in 2020. President Donald Trump returned to the key battleground state of Florida on Tuesday to ask Americans to give him another four years in office, claiming he has kept the promises that helped sweep him into office in 2016. "I can promise you that I will never ever let you down – I won't," Trump told cheering and chanting supporters who packed a pro basketball arena in downtown Orlando.
While promoting issues like the economy and border security, Trump spent as much time condemning his Democratic opponents as "socialists" and "left-wing" extremists who have tried to destroy him and his family, and have "looked down" on his many supporters.
Signaling a brutal campaign over the next 16-and-a-half months, Trump accused enemies of trying to nullify the results of the 2016 election through investigations of Russian interference and calls for impeachment.
