Did you like President Trump's Florida rally Saturday?
There's more to come in the four-year reelection campaign.
Recent presidents have established their reelection campaign committees in their third year in office to meet ballot access deadlines for key nominating contests and to have time to raise sufficient campaign funds. Trump, in contrast, filed the paperwork to establish his reelection campaign committee on Jan. 20, 2017, the day he took office. This enables his campaign to fundraise for his reelection in his first weeks, months and years in office, including, as one news article noted, raising funds from ongoing sales of his “Make America Great Again” hats. He has also filed a trademark application for a reelection slogan, “Keep America Great.”
Trump is always thinking ahead.
