President Trump officially kicked off his reelection bid in Orlando on Tuesday night and during a towering speech delivered to an enthusiastic crowd, laid out the grave stakes that America faces now that we are on the brink of socialism.
Supporters started lining up outside the 20,000 Amway Center over a day before the leader of the free world would speak and while the local newspaper threw a hissy fit with an editorial that it would not endorse Trump without even knowing who the Democrat candidate would be, the president packed them in and spoke in stark terms to the overflow crowd.
On no issue are Democrats more extreme – and more depraved – than when it comes to Border Security. The Democrat Agenda of open borders is morally reprehensible. It is the great betrayal of the American Middle Class and our Country as a whole! #Trump2020 pic.twitter.com/f9RJhpp50J

Via The Associated Press:
Addressing a crowd of thousands at Orlando’s Amway Center on Tuesday night, Trump complained he was “under assault from the very first day” of his presidency by a “fake news media” and an “illegal witch hunt” that had tried to keep him and his supporters down.
He painted a disturbing picture of what life would look like if he loses in 2020, accusing his critics of “un-American conduct” and saying Democrats “want to destroy you and they want to destroy our country as we know it.”“A vote for any Democrat in 2020 is a vote for the rise of radical socialism and the destruction of the American dream,” he said. Trump made only passing mention of any of the Democrats running to replace him even as he tossed out “radical” and “unhinged” to describe the rival party.
The apocalyptic language and finger-pointing made clear that Trump’s 2020 campaign will probably look a whole lot like his run three years ago. Even after two-and-a-half years in the Oval Office, Trump remains focused on energizing his base and offering himself as a political outsider running against Washington.
In his speech, Trump spent considerably more time focused on former Democratic rival Hillary Clinton than on his current 2020 challengers, even though she is not on the ballot.
President Donald Trump blasts the Democratic Party: “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.”

Pay attention because Trump is all that stands between decent Americans and the socialist mob.
