President Donald Trump

ORLANDO, Florida — Less than a month into office, President Donald Trump announced on Wednesday, February 15th the first rally since his inauguration.

President Trump tweeted an announcement for the rally set for Saturday, February 18th in Melbourne, Florida.

“Join me in Florida this Saturday at 5pm for a rally at the Orlando-Melbourne International Airport!” President Trump tweeted.

An administration official said President Trump would rally supporters at an airport hangar there, the same venue where he held a rally in September.

President Trump is slated to arrive at the rally by landing at the airport on Air Force One and disembarking in front of the crowd, just as he did during the campaign, the official said.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer said on Wednesday the event was a campaign rally and directed questions about it to “the campaign.” He said President Trump’s campaign was paying for it but didn’t offer further details.

President Trump indicated in a form sent to the Federal Election Commission on Inauguration Day that he intended to run for President again, but noted it did not constitute the formal announcement of his 2020 candidacy.

Last week, the Office of Special Counsel issued guidance for federal bureaucrats with regard to the nascent re-election effort.

    A million people need to turn out for this. Thousands turned out for the self-centered, screaming women’s march in D.C. Thousands for the Muslim Million Man March. Why can’t hundreds of thousands stand up for true, upright American values? The far left is tolerant of everybody…except everybody to their right: almost everybody.

      Of course there will be because the Trump supporters will come on their own for the rally where as the loser protesters only come because they are getting paid to protest and have no clue what they are protesting against.
