Donald Trump, elected on November 8, 2016 to the surprise of the Democrat Hillary Clinton, regularly declares that he is convinced of his victory in 2020.
US President Donald Trump announced Friday that he would officially launch his campaign for a second term on June 18 from Florida. A strategic choice since Florida is a key state of the presidential election that Donald Trump narrowly won in the 2016 election.
“I will announce my candidacy for a second presidential term with First Lady Melania and Vice President Mike Pence June 18 in Orlando, Florida,” tweeted the billionaire Republican who has participated in many meetings over the past months campaign across the United States.

In front of his supporters, Donald Trump, elected November 8, 2016 to the surprise of the Democratic Hillary Clinton, regularly refers to the six years that remain in power, convinced of his victory in 2020.
- Trump will turn 74 in 2020
In 2020, Donald Trump will be 74 years old. American voters will calculate that he will be 78 years old at the end of his second term if he succeeds in being re-elected. More quite a young man but the American president feels comforted to run for this second term.
The name of his Democratic opponent in the vote of November 3, 2020 is currently the big unknown: 23 men and women are candidates for the nomination of the party and the race looks very open.
Florida is a traditionally highly contested state in the presidential election. Barack Obama won in 2012 against Mitt Romney with a little less than 1% gap and Donald Trump ahead in 2016 Hillary Clinton, with a little more than 1% gap.
