Forget Impeachment: Trump Is Campaigning
(UnitedVoice.com) – While President Trump is facing a Senate trial that will likely find him acquitted, he is behaving like someone who knows he’s in a dogfight to win reelection in November.
Over the last week, Trump has been pounding away at the Democrats. He’s labeling them socialists, going after Micheal Bloomberg, and asking “American Patriots” to give generously to remind Democrats that they are in an uphill battle to win the White House. This is especially true in the coveted swing states.
As part of his defense and reelection messaging, Trump is claiming that it’s Democrats who are interfering in the 2020 election — not him or any other country. For nearly the first three years of his presidency, Trump was also fighting off the Russian hoax investigation that concluded in the Mueller report that there was no wrongdoing.
The Impeachment Hoax is interfering with the 2020 Election – But that was the idea behind the Radical Left, Do Nothing Dems Scam attack. They always knew I did nothing wrong!

Democrats Are Afraid of Socialist Label Among Hispanics in Florida
Trump’s reminder of the socialist label of the Democratic Party is sticking in places like Florida. Trump often reminds voters that Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT) is a self-proclaimed Democratic Socialist and Sen. Elizebeth Warren (D-MA) touts many of the same policies as Sanders. The candidate who wins Florida in November is almost guaranteed to win the White House.
Trump’s “socialist” attack may be resonating among Hispanics in Florida who come from socialist countries such as Cuba, Nicaragua, and Venezuela. According to the Pew Research Center, one in six voters in Florida is Hispanic. One-third of all Hispanics in Florida are Cuban and they were twice as likely to vote for Trump in 2016.
Trump Is Increasing Campaign Activities
On Thursday, the president was at Trump National Doral Miami for winter meetings with the Republican National Committee (RNC) as they prepare to kick the campaign into high gear. The RNC and the Trump campaign are closely aligned. They’re sharing valuable resources to ensure the president’s re-election and to help Republicans win back the House.
RNC spokeswoman Mandi Merritt said of the winter meeting, “The goal is to help highlight the record energy and momentum we are seeing across the country for our unparalleled infrastructure and ground game that will be key to reelecting President Trump and Republicans up and down the ballot in 2020.”
Special Events and Rallies
On Friday, Trump spoke to thousands of pro-life marchers at the annual March for Life. He was the first sitting president to appear in person at the event. Since taking office in 2017, Trump has highlighted the pro-life event.
Trump campaign national press secretary Kayleigh McEnamy said:
“President Trump is the most pro-life President in the history of our country, and becoming the first President to speak at the March for Life is further evidence of that.”
On January 4th, the campaign launched “Evangelicals for Trump” during a massive rally at a Miami megachurch. Trump made a continued campaign promise to stand up to the pro-abortion lobby and protect innocent life.
The campaign is also busy scheduling new rallies across battleground states. In the next few weeks, three rallies are scheduled, two of which are in Iowa and New Hampshire. At the same time as the rallies, Democrats will be voting for their candidates in the Iowa Caucus and New Hampshire primary.
Since November 2019, Trump has held nine rallies in key battleground states.
