Trump Launches 2020 Presidential Bid at Florida Rally

HeadlineJun 19, 2019

Back in the United States, President Trump kicked off his 2020 presidential bid with a “Keep America Great” rally in Orlando, Florida, Tuesday evening. Trump again attacked immigrants, his 2016 opponent Hillary Clinton, CNN and Democratic lawmakers, accusing them of “flood[ing] the country with illegal immigrants.” Democratic Congressmember David Cicilline tweeted that it was a “hate rally.” In his response to the rally, 2020 presidential candidate Bernie Sanders called Trump a racist, a sexist and a xenophobe, and accused him of neglecting climate change, gun violence and inequality.
