While his base remains fired up, Trump heads into his re-election campaign as a historically unpopular president
Some of the Democratic 2020 candidates are getting in last minute shots as Trump prepares to take to the stage.
Here’s Joe Biden’s campaign manager, according to a report from AP:
“Donald Trump is launching his campaign for re-election tonight and the American people face a choice – we can make Trump an aberration or let him fundamentally and forever alter the character of this nation,” said Kate Bedingfield, deputy campaign manager for Democratic front-runner Joe Biden.
“I think Trump understands and he’s beginning to panic…he is in trouble,” says @BernieSanders, as the President holds a rally in Orlando while trailing in Fla. in the polls.
“His agenda…is not what the American people feel comfortable with,” he adds.https://t.co/5gVqaJnjIc pic.twitter.com/hmKSmLZCkg
There’s a bit of a lull in the crowd as we wait for Trump to arrive. People were doing a Mexican wave for a bit, but they’ve given up now. The music isn’t helping: we just had the slow plod of Candle in the Wind by Elton John, which was problematic in more ways than one given Trump’s past lewd comments about Princess Diana.
It was rocking in here earlier though:
This is the best dancing I’ve seen at a Trump rally since that guy moonwalked through a row in 2018 pic.twitter.com/csy5f1TioK
