Trump sets stage for 2020 fight with false claims and recycled attacks

Donald Trump has set the stage for the nastiest US presidential race in modern times with a campaign rally that recycled old themes and stoked resentment towards Democrats and the media.

More than 500 days before the 2020 US election, the president formally launched his campaign before a capacity 20,000 crowd in a sports stadium in Orlando in the vital swing state of Florida, demonstrating that his base, at least, remains as fervent as ever.

Trump spent little effort offering a vision of the future. He and his supporters were most energised by his greatest hits: grievance politics, demonising opponents, raging against perceives injustices. There was even a reprise of attacks on Hillary Clinton, his defeated rival in 2016, complete with furious chants of “Lock her up!”

His vicious, often fabricated, attacks implied that while a referendum on his record would likely end in defeat, his campaign believes that whipping up fear of a Democrat in the White House could yet save his skin.

Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders gave an immediate rebuttal to Trump’s speech, summarizing it as “lies, distortions, and total absolute nonsense”. He criticized Trump for barely talking about the climate emergency, or that “half of the people in this country are working paycheck to paycheck”.

Daniel Wessel, deputy war room director of the Democratic National Committee, said: “Like we said: new campaign, same broken promises. Voters heard nothing new tonight. It’s been the same thing for the past two and a half years. One broken promise after another.

1. Things will get worse for Trump, not better..

Why?

The continued House Investigations into the corruption that is Trump World.

The possibility of a serious Recession worse than the one Bush caused.

Another stupid war we cannot afford to engage in.

The increasing humanitarian crisis at the Border.

Allies refusing to deal with the United States as Diplomatic channels break down.

Trump's continued attacks on the foundations of our Democracy.

And on down the line. Same shit, different day. Democrats have much to campaign on when it comes to the issues. Trump's Achilles Heel is his over bloated ego. Go after what he has not done will get under his skin big time.

4. I agree

HE also is claiming better health care , but he and the gop claimed they were for pre-exsisting, but behind the scene they were against it all long, liars. He and the gop will destroy health care more, and he told everyone this when he accused the Dems would do that, which he always accuses others of what he is doing. Who kicked millions off of the ACA in their tax scam bill, they did ,and trump signed it taking trillions out of Medicaid, Medicare , and Social Security. They also have attacked women's health care over and over again. He targets his weak areas by claiming the Dems will hurt our health care system, when trump and the gop are really doing everything they can to hurt it. Anyone believing his newest claims he'll give us a better lower costing and covering more claim , well I got a bridge to sell you. because they'll make it even worse, again.
