    US Presidency 2020

    President Trump launches first campaign ad for 2020 election -- 1282 days away | syracuse.com
    The 2020 election season has officially begun.

    President Donald Trump launched his first campaign ad for re-election on Monday, 1,282 days before the next presidential election. The 30-second commercial, paid for by Donald J. Trump for President Inc. and approved by Trump, focuses on his first 100 days in office.

    "America has rarely seen such success," a narrator says in the video. "America is winning and President Trump is making America great again."

    Well, he has much more fun running for president than BEING president. Seems like a natural place for him to turn for validation and self-esteem.

    He actually filed paperwork to run months ago. Which then leads to another set of complications for Trump abusing taxpayer money. When is he speaking as The President (expenses paid) and when is he The Candidate (he has to pay)?

    When I was in the Washington airport back in March I bought a 'Make America Great Again' magnet.

    It's a real magnet. It actually exists.

    None of the first tier are running. Too old. Bottom tier, goodness help us if it comes to that! I'd add Sheldon Whitehouse to the list of people in the second tier. I don't see Franken running for President.

    He filed immediately. By running for office people can give him bribes campaign contributions.

    So straight up the GOP is a thoroughly corrupt party right? If they had the interest of the public at hand a lot of their policies wouldn't exist, or be up for debate, right?

    I honestly can't even think about American politics without images of good versus evil coming to mind.

    I agree that America has rarely seen anything like Trump's first 100 days in office.
