Trump says 2020 campaign launch is 'hottest' ticket of all his rallies© Evan Vucci Supporters of President Donald Trump cheer as he speaks during a campaign rally on May 20, 2019, in Montoursville, Pa. President Trump on Wednesday bragged about the high ticket demand for his upcoming Florida rally, saying it looks to be the "hottest" ticket out of all his campaign events.

In a tweet, the president said the June 18 event in Orlando, where he will officially launch his 2020 campaign, already has 74,000 requests for the 20,000-seat arena.

"With all of the big events that we have done, this ticket looks to be the 'hottest' of them all. See you in Florida!" he tweeted Wednesday.

Trump, who has regularly held arena rallies throughout his time in office, frequently boasts about the crowd size at the events. Most recently, he has touted the attendance at an El Paso, Texas rally, comparing it to the crowd at an event hosted the same night by 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke.

In announcing the event last month, Trump said he will be joined by first lady Melania Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and second lady Karen Pence at the June 18 event at Orlando's Amway Center.

The Amway Center fits up to 18,500 people depending on the type of event, according to the venue's website.

The Trump campaign's event permit says about 17,000 people are expected to attend the rally, with overflow crowds expected outside, according to local NBC affiliate WESH2 News.

The local station also reported the city of Orlando may need to account for extra costs, including police and overtime pay for workers.
