Orlando Sentinel endorses 'not Donald Trump' for president ahead of reelection kickoff

Orlando Sentinel endorses 'not Donald Trump' for president ahead of reelection kickoff

Some members of the far-right hate group Proud Boys were spotted marching in Orlando and at least twice tried to enter the street where the anti-Trump protest was being held.

Lemire reported from NY.

If you couldn't make it to Orlando, here's how to watch Trump's prime-time speech live tonight.

CBS News reports numerous voters in the queue listed the economy and immigration among their top concerns - issues Mr Trump is sure to address throughout his campaign.

Folks started lining up at 5 a.m. Monday to witness President Trump kick-off his 2020 re-election campaign.

"I want to know who stood with me when it mattered most".

That anecdotal energy is reflected in polling, too. "You just can't, you just can't cough".

But Democrats cite a string of broken promises in Trump's first term, from lowering drug prices to closing corporate tax loopholes and stopping plant closures, as well as his crackdowns on women's rights and immigrants.

That populist clarion was a central theme of his maiden political adventure, as the businessman-turned-candidate successfully appealed to disaffected voters who felt left behind by economic dislocation and demographic shifts.

The Sentinel has mostly endorsed Republicans since 1960, but in recent years it has been more independent, backing Democrats in 2004 (John Kerry over George W. Bush), 2008 (Barack Obama over John McCain) and 2016 (Hillary Clinton over Trump).

They figured that Trump probably had no chance but still wanted to see if he would sign their dog-eared copy of the "The Art of the Deal".

Lines began forming at the Amway Center in the wee hours of Monday morning, according to News6 in Orlando, with eight people camping out as early as 2:30 a.m-more than 40 hours before the rally.

It is no secret that Trump's popularity has substantially reduced over the last months, especially after his policies led to higher tensions with Iran and failure in many US foreign policy issues; however, the real question is why USA media, especially the ones close to the White House, such as Fox news, have started to expose Trump's unpopularity.

"We know that there's gonna be a lot of people here, so we chose to get here early and we're hoping to get really close and close as possible as we can get to Trump", said Nathan Gunn, Trump supporter. They don't hold him to the same standards they hold other politicians because they don't see him as a politician; they see him as a rock star.

"If the economy stays strong, he is very likely to get re-elected", said Trump confidant Newt Gingrich, a former Republican speaker of the US House of Representatives. Harris and Buttigieg both have a 1 point margin over Trump.
