Salesman Trump aims for a second term

US President Donald Trump launches his reelection bid on June 18, but he’ll need all his salesman’s skills

Donald Trump considers himself a legendary salesman, but can he really sell America on giving him four more drama-filled years at the White House?

Tuesday, he’ll make his big pitch.

The 2020 reelection kickoff rally is being held in Orlando, Florida and campaign operations chief Michael Glassner says the “historic” event “has already generated tens of thousands of ticketing requests.”

There’s little mystery about how the night will go down.

Expect Trump, the self-promoting hero of his ghost-written book “The Art of the Deal,” to claim the US economy is richer, the military stronger, and the country more respected than ever in history.

Expect ultra-loyal, core Republican supporters in red “Make America Great Again” baseball caps to chant “USA!”

When the president points to journalists covering the event, expect the crowd to boo.

In 2016, Trump was a novelty, a candidate so different and to many outrageous that few seriously thought he could beat his seemingly bulletproof Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton.

But this time around, everyone knows what to expect.

“The way he looks at it, it worked beautifully in 2016 when everyone else was wrong, so he’ll follow the same instincts and (believe he’ll) win again in 2020,” veteran University of Virginia political analyst Larry Sabato said.

“It may not be the right strategy, but it is Trump, and he’s incapable of reorienting himself.”
