Donald Trump kicks off his 2020 re-election campaign

Donald Trump has officially kicked off his re-election campaign for 2020.

The Republican president made his case before thousands of supporters at a rally in Florida, calling the state ‘my second home’.

Mr Trump used the announcement to lash out at Democrats, accusing them of trying to ‘rip your country apart’.

Jabbing at the press and poking fun at ‘crooked’ Hillary Clinton who he ran against in 2016, the president addressed a crowd of thousands in Orlando.

Mr Trump complained he had been ‘under assault from the very first day’ of his presidency by a ‘fake news’ media and ‘illegal witch hunt’ that had tried to keep him and his supporters down.

And he painted a disturbing picture of what life would look like if he loses in 2020, accusing his critics of ‘un-American conduct’ and telling the crowd that Democrats ‘want to destroy you and they want to destroy our country as we know it’.

During his 80-minute speech, Mr Trump spoke fondly of his 2016 run, calling it ‘a defining moment in American history’.

He told the cheering Orlando crow: ‘Tonight I stand before you to officially launch my campaign for a second term as president of the United States.

‘I promise you I will never ever let you down.

‘We are going to keep America great again.’
