Trump Officially Enters 2020 Race to 'Keep America Great'

(C-SPAN)

Almost four years to the day President Donald Trump announced his run for the White House from Trump Tower in New York City, he took the stage at a massive rally in Orlando, Florida, on Tuesday night to announce his plans for a second term.

Greeted by thunderous cheers, Trump and first lady Melania Trump joined his vice president, Mike Pence, and wife Karen. Though the first lady declared: "It has been my honor to serve as first lady of this incredible country for the past two years. And I'm excited to do it for six more," Trump himself was almost an hour into his speech before he declared his candidacy.

"With every ounce of heart, might, and sweat . . . we are going to keep America great again, and we will indeed keep America great," Trump said. "Better than ever before. And that is why tonight I stand before you to officially launch my campaign for a second term as president of the UnitedStates."

During his speech, Trump pounded Democrats, Hillary Clinton, the media and the two-year investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 election by special counsel Robert Mueller.

"The only thing these corrupt politicians will understand is an earthquake at the ballot box. We did it once and now we will do it again and this time we're going to finish the job."​

"2016 was not merely another four-year election. This was a defining moment in American history, ask them right there," he said, pointing at the news media in the crowd. He then smirked as the crowd booed and chanted their disdain.

"That is a lot of fake news back there," he declared.

"Our patriotic movement has been under assault from the very first day," he declared. "We accomplished more than any other president has in the first two and a half years of a presidency. And under circumstances that no president has had to deal with before, because we did, in the middle of the great and illegal witch-hunt.

"We went through the greatest witch-hunt in political history. The only collusion was committed by the Democrats, the fake news media, and their operatives and the people who funded the phony dossier, crooked Hillary Clinton and the DNC," he said.

"It was all an illegal attempt to overturn the results of the election, spy on our campaign, which is what they did, and subvert our democracy. Remember, the insurance policy just in case Hillary Clinton lost."

At which point the crowd burst into the chant: "Lock her up!"

Of Democrats, he complained:

"They only care about their own political power," he said. "They went after my family, my business, my finances, my employees, almost everyone that I have ever known or worked with, but they are really going after you. That's what it is all about. It's not about us. It's about you. They tried to erase your vote, erase your legacy of the greatest campaign and the greatest election probably in the history of our country.

"Our radical Democrat opponents are driven by hatred, prejudice, and rage. They want to destroy you and they want to destroy our country as we know it."

He framed the 2020 election as "a verdict on the amazing progress we have made" and "a rigged system."

"So, if you want to shut down this rigged system once and for all, then show up November 3rd. That's your day, big day, and vote, vote, vote. We're going to have a big, big day."

He also taunted Democratic presidential primary frontrunner, former Vice President Joe Biden, though only by the derogatory nickname he has given him.

"Remember the statement from the previous administration? That you would need a magic wand to bring back manufacturing? Well, tell Sleepy Joe we found the magic wand."

Trump claimed in the Obama administration years, "on average we lost 2,000 manufacturing jobs a month. Since my inauguration, we've added 16,000 manufacturing jobs a month."
