From Watch Parties to Street Fairs, Tuesday’s Official Launch of President Trump’s 2020 Re-Election Campaign Promises to Have Something for Everyone


The long-awaited kickoff to President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign for 2020 has finally arrived and much like the president himself, it is turning out to be the first of its kind, anywhere.

The event – an all day affair Tuesday dubbed “45 Fest” – is already setting records as organizers prepare for President Trump’s arrival at Orlando’s Amway Center tonight at 8pm, and will be carried live online and on air.

Like most campaign-style rallies, the Trump campaign is making accommodations for supporters unable to get into the 20,000-seat arena. “We are building large movie screens outside to take care of everybody. Over 100,000 requests. Our Country is doing great, far beyond what the haters & losers thought possible – and it will only get better!” the president tweeted Monday.

In anticipation of what President Trump promises to be “a very exciting evening,” supporters began lining up some 40 hours in advance.


Several news outlets are on-the-ground covering the day-long festival event, including The Epoch Times’ .


Nationwide, almost 800 watch parties are scheduled, according to The Washington Examiner.

“A total of 797 events are already planned to focus on the president’s announcement, and they will occur in every state, plus Puerto Rico, Guam, and the Northern Mariana Islands.

That number dwarfs the 133 “#ImpeachTrump Day of Action” events Saturday that were sparsely attended, including one in front of the White House, prompting a mocking tweet from the president.

Furthermore, Trump Victory Leadership Initiative Training and MAGA Meet Ups have almost 1,000 events scheduled to watch the rally, Breitbart reported.
