Donald Trump

New York: Veering between incumbent and insurgent, US President Donald Trump trumpeted the economic gains during his two years in office but also portrayed himself as an outsider as he hit out against the political establishment and the inquiries against him during the official launch of his 2020 re-election campaign. Displaying his trademark flamboyance on Tuesday, he tried to make the attacks on him an attack on the 20,000 supporters packed inside a sports arena in Orlando, Florida, and his fervent backers elsewhere. “They tried to take away your dignity and your destiny,” he said of the Democrats reminding them that his 2016 rival Hillary Clinton had called his supporters “deplorable” and “irredeemable”.
