President Donald Trump officially launched his bid for the 2020 presidency at rally in Orlando, Florida, on Tuesday with a series of extravagant pledges to a packed stadium of cheering supporters.
He told cheering supporters: “We will push onward with new medical frontiers. We will come up with the cures to many, many problems, to many, many diseases – including cancer and others, and we’re getting closer all the time.”
“We will eradicate AIDS in America once and for all, and we’re very close. We will lay the foundation for landing American astronauts on the surface of Mars.”
Most of the Trump’s speech in the 20,000-capacity stadium was devoted to attacking familiar enemies, including Hilary Clinton, Democrats, and the “fake news” media.

“And that is why tonight, I stand before you to officially launch my campaign for a second term as president of the United States.
“I can promise you that I will never, ever, ever let you down. I won’t.”
