US President Donald Trump said on Friday that he will formally launch his re-election campaign at a June rally in Orlando, according to CNN.
He said in a tweet that the kickoff rally will be June 18 alongside first lady Melania Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and second lady Karen Pence, CNN reported.
The event is largely symbolic, as the President has made it clear he is running for a second term since he took office in January 2017. On the day of his inauguration, Trump filed formally to run for a second term in 2020. The President has also held multiple reelection rallies, the first in February 2017, said CNN.
