Preparations of the president in full force:
News related to Donald trump election has shown that he has been holding political rallies across the country over the course of many months recently. Most important of all, the news sources also indicate that Trump has been involved in various programs to raise money for his re-election campaign. It is interesting to note that the rally on June 18 would also mark the fourth anniversary of the day when Donald Trump had announced his candidacy for the Presidential election in 2016 at Trump Tower in New York City.
Donald Trump had won the state of Florida in the 2016 elections and has also shown an affinity for the state as his second home. However, there is no clear assurance regarding the victory of Trump in many crucial states in 2020 thereby implying the need for a tough fight from his side to win the title of the President of the United States.
Other sources of Donald Trump news about his re-election show that he had filed for re-election only after a short period after coming to office in 2017. Sources have reported that the president would be depending heavily on strong support from the Republicans as well as a strong economy in order to forward his bid for the 2020 re-election. According to recent reports, President Donald Trump has been highly focused on the 2020 presidential elections.
War of words with Joe Biden:
The reasons to validate his higher inclination towards 2020 can be identified in the attention that he has been giving to the evaluation of the possible Democratic challengers for the election. One particular name has been a formidable priority on the agenda of the president, and that person is former Vice President Joe Biden.
According to the latest updates on Donald Trump twitter account, his obsession with Joe Biden can be observed clearly. Other than pinning humiliating nicknames on the former Vice President and predicting him as the last resort of a Democratic nominee, the president has also taken a dig at the intellectual capabilities of Joe Biden. In a recent trip to Japan, the president expressed confirmation to the views of North Korean dictator, Kim Jong Un, regarding Joe Biden. Both of them shared the opinion that Biden did not have sufficient intellectual capacity and is a ‘Low IQ’ individual. This event was a hot topic, as Trump was criticized in various circles. Presently, Joe Biden has the top spot in the majority of Democratic primary polls alongside leading ahead of Trump in multiple polls according to predictions for the 2020 election.
Bringing Florida to the core of the campaign:
A campaign official for Donald Trump had stated the importance of Florida State to his possibilities for re-election. The official conveyed his statements in a phone interview with CBS and clearly indicated that Florida was “Very” significant for the chances of the President to take over the White House again.
He further added that Republicans are faring better in Florida and since the President has pinned his hopes of winning strongly on Florida, there are high chances that Florida would be the deciding factor for Trump’s win in the 2020 presidential election.
Plans for Florida:
According to sources on the plans for Donald Trump election in 2020, the Sunshine State has received the highest priority over the rest of the country. Florida has been assigned a single and personal political ‘region’ on the map of the president’s re-election campaign. On the other hand, remaining states in the political landscape of the US have been categorized into 8 different regions for the campaign.
One of the senior campaign supporters also stated that they expect a formidable presence in Florida, and it is the only state that deserves to be a region in itself. On the other hand, the 2020 campaign of President Donald Trump has also been highly attentive regarding the three states of Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Michigan, which were highly influential in ensuring his victory in 2016.
The basic rationale for selecting the target group was stated to be their support for the president’s idea of forceful support for freedom rather than a socialist dictatorship. Amidst the news of the president announcing his re-election campaign for 2020, the predictions for his path to the White House in 2020 indicate towards a constrained path. Democrat challengers are planning on increasing their competitiveness in the three upper Midwest swing states, i.e., Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Michigan that proved to be Mr. Trump’s key to victory in 2016.
