John Kerry on 2020: 'I'm not running'

John Kerry on 2020: 'I'm not running' John Kerry has said will be sitting on the sidelines in the 2020 presidential race. The former secretary of state, who lost the 2004 election as Democratic nominee against George W. Bush, said in November he was “not taking anything off the table” in whether he would challenge President Trump. Kerry, 75, has since made up his mind and suggested he’ll throw his support behind Joe Biden, 76. "I was giving it thought at a time when Joe Biden hadn't made up his mind, I wasn't in a rush to have to get into the race then,” he told Sky News. "I'm delighted he's in the race as he and I are old friends.

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Four years after launching one of the most improbably successful runs for president in history, President Donald Trump officially kicks off its sequel on Tuesday, again offering himself as a political outsider — but this time from the Oval Office.

Trump, who launched his last campaign from Trump Tower, headed for a mega-rally in Orlando, hoping to replicate the dynamics that allowed him to capture the Republican Party and then the presidency in 2016 as an insurgent intent on disrupting the status quo. It's a more awkward pitch to make now that he's in the White House.

As he mounts his bid for reelection, Trump is offering himself as the outsider once again — but it's a much more awkward pitch to make from inside the Oval His promises to rock the ship of state are now more than an abstract pledge, though, complicated by his tumultuous 29 months at its helm.

The president's advisers said he aims to connect the dots between the promise of his disruptive first-time candidacy and his goals for another term in the White House. His promise to rock the ship of state is now more than an abstract pledge, though, complicated by his tumultuous 29 months at its helm.

Any president is inherently an insider. Trump has worked in the White House for two years, travels the skies in Air Force One and changes the course of history with the stroke of a pen or the post of a tweet.

"We're taking on the failed political establishment and restoring government of, by and for the people," Trump said in a video released by his campaign Monday.

That populist clarion was a central theme of his maiden political adventure, as the businessman-turned-candidate successfully appealed to disaffected voters who felt left behind by economic dislocation and demographic shifts. And he has no intention of abandoning it, even if he is the face of the institutions he looks to disrupt.

He underscored that on the eve of the rally in the must-win swing state of Florida, returning to the hard-line immigration themes of his first campaign by tweeting that, next week, Immigration and Customs Enforcement "will begin the process of removing the millions of illegal aliens who have illicitly found their way into the United States." That promise, which came with no details and sparked Democratic condemnation, seemed to offer a peek into a campaign that will largely be fought along the same lines as his first bid, with very few new policy proposals for a second term.

Early Democratic front-runner Joe Biden said Tuesday that Trump's politics are "all about dividing us" in ways that are "dangerous — truly, truly dangerous."

President Trump unveils 2020 slogan to replace 2016 rallying cry during campaign rally

But those involved in the president's reelection effort believe that his brash version of populism, combined with his mantra to "Drain the Swamp," still resonates, despite his administration's cozy ties with lobbyists and corporations and the Trump family's apparent efforts to profit off the presidency.

Advisers believe that, in an age of extreme polarization, many Trump backers view their support for the president as part of their identity, one not easily shaken. They point to his seemingly unmovable support with his base supporters as evidence that, despite more than two years in office, he is still viewed the same way he was as a candidate: the bomb-throwing political rebel.

On Monday, a boisterous crowd of thousands of Trump supporters, many of them in red hats, began gathering outside the Amway Center arena in Orlando, where the campaign had organized a festival with live music and food trucks.

They spent Tuesday braving downpours and listening to a cover band playing Southern rock standards such as Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Sweet Home Alabama" as they waited for Trump's arrival. Vendors sold water, as well as pins, hats and T-shirts with slogans including "Trump 2020" and "ICE ICE Baby," a reference to the law enforcement agency tasked with enforcing immigration laws. In the high-80s heat, some women wore "Make American Great Again" bathing suits.

Hillary Clinton claps back at Trump for attacking her at 2020 launch rally

Hillary Clinton claps back at Trump for attacking her at 2020 launch rally Hillary Clinton shot back at President Trump after he took digs at his 2016 election rival during his official 2020 campaign launch event. The former secretary of state responded on Twitter to former Florida Gov. candidate Andrew Gillum, who said she must be "EXHAUSTED!" because she has been "running through" Trump's "small mind" for a long period of time. "I can handle it. Blessed with stamina. And thankfully I didn’t stay up late last night watching InfoWars ...," Clinton tweeted on Wednesday. Trump kicked off his re-election campaign with a rally in Orlando, Fla.

Those involved in the president’s reelection effort believe his brash version of populism

"Trump has been the best president we've ever had," said Ron Freitas, a retired Merchant Marine and registered Democrat from the Orlando area who sat in a lawn chair. Freitas said he was sure Trump would prevail over whomever his Democratic opponent was.

Alex Fuentes, a municipal diesel mechanic, wore a shirt that said "Make Democrats cry again." He said he was an Iraq veteran who twice voted for Barack Obama but parted company with Democrats such as Hillary Clinton, mostly over foreign policy.

"There's a lot of minorities that are hidden Trump supporters," Fuentes said.

Hundreds of anti-Trump protesters clapped and took photos when a 20-foot (6-meter) blimp of a snarling Trump baby in a diaper was inflated. The blimp looks like the one that flew in London during Trump's recent state visit but is not the same one.

"The goal is to get under his skin," said Mark Offerman, the blimp's handler.

Protester Shaun Noble wore a rainbow-colored sign that said "Super, Callous, Fragile, Racist, Sexist, Nazi, POTUS."

Noble's mother was at the Trump rally while he was at the anti-Trump protest.

"It's really caused a divide in our relationship," Noble said. "But it's my right to believe what I want to believe in, and it's her right to believe what she wants to believe."

Some members of the far-right hate group Proud Boys were spotted marching in Orlando and at least twice tried to enter the street where the anti-Trump protest was being held. They were stopped by groups of police officers and deputies. As they walked away, a man from the Proud Boys group said, "We're just Americans. This is a sad day."

Trump will watch first 2020 Democratic debate, but he doesn't want to.
The president downplayed the Democrats ahead of the first debate, casting the candidates as a "very unexciting group of people." He stopped short of saying he planned to live-tweet during the debate. The debates, which will broadcast Wednesday and Thursday from Miami on NBC, MSNBC and Telemundo, is the first of the 2020 campaign cycle for top Democrats vying for their party's nomination. Each night will feature 10 different candidates. The only challenger Trump mentioned by name was former Vice President Joe Biden, the front-runner for his party's 2020 nomination.
