President Donald Trump officially launched his re-election bid in Orlando, Florida on Tuesday. But having filed his intention to run on day of his 2017 inauguration, given his love of frequent televised rallies with supporters, and in possession of a tried and tested new campaign slogan, did the campaign ever really end? United States Studies Centre CEO Professor Simon Jackman joins the podcast to discuss Trump's launch event and previews the first of the Democratic presidential debates next week.
