President Donald Trump will be formally announcing that he will be seeking reelection tomorrow night, in front of what should be a capacity crowd at the Amway Center in downtown Orlando.
Here is what you’ll likely hear from the President:
A lot of 2016 messaging at the expense of his opponents: Donald Trump broke through a crowded GOP primary almost four years ago, by making fun of his opponents. Tomorrow, Trump will likely unload on “Sleepy Joe”, “Pocahontas”, “Buttiger er, Buttigen” and others. The audience will love it as much as they did the first time.
High praise for Ron DeSantis over the signed “Sanctuary Cities”bill and “Build the Wall 2.0”: The President will be surrounded by some of his favorite people including early supporters, Congressman Matt Gaetz, and Senator Rick Scott. On the podium, expect him to talk up Ron DeSantis, who was in Gaetz’s role before he ran for Governor and signed the anti-Sanctuary cities bill last week. You’ll also hear about progress on the wall and what the President will do to get it completed.
Tough talk on foreign policy and trade: Trump will snap at China and Mexico over recent tariff controversies, and will also put Iran on notice that any hostilities against the United States will not be tolerated.
“No collusion, no obstruction”: The President will take another victory lap on the Mueller report that didn’t directly implicate him in any obstruction of justice (it didn’t absolve him either).
Very little moderation: Normally, when politicians don’t have a primary, they run to the center. You’re not going to get that from Trump tomorrow night. This announcment is going to be for his core supporters and he’s probably going unscripted and he’s going to say what he feels. It’s the same route he took to get elected.
