  Trump 2020: president to launch election campaign in Orlando – live

  06/18/2019 06:21 PM

While his base remains fired up, Trump heads into his re-election campaign as a historically unpopular president

The music has stopped, but Trump isn’t due on stage for two hours, so there’s a long list of dignitaries picking up the slack.

I’ve just been listening to a fire and brimstone address from an extremely angry pastor here at the Amway Center. She is praying that Trump will be able to overcome every “evil political strategy” being sent from “from hell”.

A number of ‘Proud Boys’, the far-right organization listed as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center, has descended on Orlando before Trump’s campaign launch.

Videos from journalists in the downtown area shows men marching through the city chanting, among other things, ‘Proud Boys are here’ and flashing racist hand gestures:

Proud Boys and white power signs in Orlando. pic.twitter.com/t0ELnjtkTB

Several dozen members of the right-wing organization marched from the arena towards the Stonewall bar on Church Street, shouting anti-Democratic Party and pro-USA chants and with some displaying white power symbols on their clothing and banners.

The Florida Democratic Party is holding a Win With Love rally at the bar to counter the Trump event, with live music and local politicians and community leaders scheduled to address the crowd in the early evening.
