SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) – UPDATE: President Trump kicked off his re-election campaign last night in Orlando while supporters gathered right here in Savannah.
At the packed Amway Center in Orlando, the president debuted a new campaign slogan, “Keep America Great”.
During his speech, President Trump said he’s been under siege by investigations since he took office. He also described democrats in harsh terms, saying the party is driven by hatred.
Here in Savannah, over 100 Trump supporters tuned in at Coach’s Corner on E. Victory Dr.
Jonothan Jones was in attendance last night and said he thinks the president has accomplished a lot so far.
“If you just look at the last period in office and what he’s done and the people he’s reached out to, and just see his record,” Jones said. “This is a great time for people to come on and jump on the Trump wagon.”
The event was hosted by a number of local political groups, including the Chatham County Republican Party and the Skidaway Island Republican Club.
This all comes a week before two dozen democrats are competing for their party’s nomination to face off against Trump in the November 2020 election.
