President Trump kicked off his reelection campaign with a rally in Orlando. VP Pence was the opening speaker, doing his usual polished job. First Lady Melania Trump spoke beautifully:
It has been my honor to serve as First Lady of this incredible country for the past two years. And I’m excited to do it for six more. I am proud of all my husband, this administration, and the whole family have done on behalf of the American people, in such a short time. He truly loves this country, and will continue to work on your behalf as long as he can. All of us will. Thank you all again for being here tonight. And now, I want to introduce my husband, the President of the United States, Donald J. Trump.
President Trump was in fine form. He called out the Democrats and the media for trying to steal and then undo the 2016 election. He said the attack was on the voters, the people who had been put down and forgotten by career politicians. The president rehearsed the craziness and hatred coming from the Democrats, towards the American people, and warned Democrats must not be allowed back in control of the country. He especially pointed out Democrats’ reckless disregard for the most vulnerable Americans, who are most harmed by floods of illegal immigrants taking jobs, services, and increasing gang crime. He expressly claimed the Democrats’ immigration position is all about their own political careers.
