Donald Trump 2020: US president launches re-election campaign at Orlando rally vowing political 'earthquake'
Donald Trump vowed to deliver another "earthquake at the ballot box" in 2020 as he formally launched his re-election campaign in front of 20,000 cheering supporters in Orlando, Florida.  The US president warned that "the swamp" he had vowed to drain during his 2016 campaign was "fighting back so viciously and violently" that he needed another four years in office.  Mr Trump boasted of his presidential achievements including creating a US economy that was "the envy of the world", declaring: "The American dream is back." He also painted the Democratic Party, his political opponents, as "radical socialists", warning: "They want to destroy you, they want to destroy our country as we know it." The rally in a key swing state was well received among supporters in the stadium, who cheered and jeered at Mr Trump's punch lines - including repeatedly booing the "fake news" media.  President Donald Trump speaks to supporters where he formally announced his 2020 re-election bid on Tuesday in Orlando, Florida Credit: AP Yet the president's speech was largely devoid of new policy pledges, instead often repeating lines delivered on the 2018 midterm elections campaign trail.
