President Donald Trump has officially kicked off the campaign for his re-election in 2020 with a large rally in Orlando, Florida. He announced his new campaign slogan as "Keep America Great!" to the roars of the crowd, many wearing hats and clothing featuring his 2016 slogan, "Make America Great Again".

There were few mentions of his Democratic opponents – though one mention of "Sleepy Joe [Biden]" did get up. Instead, the president kept to familiar themes like immigration, trade and the “witch hunt” conducted against him by the special counsel, Robert Mueller.

Democratic contenders for 2020 will get their chance to front the public next week with the first televised presidential debates, also being held in Florida.
