Donald Trump to announce SECOND TERM campaign – US president vows to win AGAIN

Trump, who became President in 2016, tweeted on Friday: “I will be announcing my Second Term Presidential Run with First Lady Melania, Vice President Mike Pence, and Second Lady Karen Pence on June 18th in Orlando, Florida, at the 20,000 seat Amway Center. Join us for this Historic Rally!” 

Trump has been a controversial figure over the past few years.

His policies have ranged from the executive order that restricts entry to the US from certain countries, as well as the wall with Mexico and his rejection of the Paris climate deal.

These have resulted in criticism both in the US and around the world. 

The 72-year-old has also made many outspoken comments against political opponents, the media, and those who have opposed him, along with the investigation into his links to Russia.

Trump’s announcement comes just days before he makes a state visit to the UK next week.

During his visit, he and his wife, Melania, will see a display of British royal pageantry during the visit.

They will also have lunch with Queen Elizabeth, tea with heir Prince Charles, a banquet at Buckingham Palace and a tour of Westminster Abbey, coronation church of English monarchs for 1,000 years.

Trump is also likely to tell Prime Minister Theresa May that her successor should ban Huawei from building 5G networks.

Meanwhile, widespread demonstrations are currently being arranged for June 4 in a repeat of similar events that took place during the President’s last visit to London.

Last year saw a giant inflatable “Trump baby” flown above Trafalgar Square.

Royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams told “Protests are expected and this will be among the most contentious state visits ever.

“Obviously the emphasis is in the ceremonial and the traditional features of these visits such as the state banquet, business links and the celebration of the military ties on the eve of the commemoration of the 75th anniversary of D-Day.”

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, Commons Speaker John Bercow, London Mayor Sadiq Khan and Lib Dem leader Sir Vince Cable have announced their plans to boycott the white-tie dinner in protest to Trump.

On the flip side, Nigel Farage’s allies say Whitehouse officials are keen to get the Brexit Party leader and Trump’s long-term pal a seat at the banquet.
