The Left’s Trump Derangement Syndrome is sure to go into overdrive over this.
Katherine Rodriguez reports for Breitbart that two days before his inauguration, Donald Trump already had the slogan for his re-election campaign in 2020.
During an interview with the Washington “fake news” Post on Jan. 18, 2017, he asked, “Are you ready?,” then announced his 2020 campaign slogan:
“Keep America Great!”
Trump called his lawyer into his office to trademark the slogan, more than three years before he is up for re-election, so confident is he that America would be great by the time he uses it.
It turns out he had done this before.
In 2012, within a week of Mitt Romney’s loss to Obama, Trump trademarked “Make America Great Again” for a $325 fee.
He explained that at the time, “I felt that jobs were hurting. I looked at the many types of illness our country had, and whether it’s at the border, whether it’s security, whether it’s law and order or lack of law and order. Then, of course, you get to trade, and I said to myself, ‘What would be good?’ I was sitting at my desk, where I am right now, and I said, ‘Make America Great Again.’”
To him, “Make America Great Again” meant a plan from more jobs to a stronger military.
The slogan and the hashtag #MAGA quickly made its way to hats and t-shirts, and became a rallying cry for supporters.
In addition to his 2020 campaign slogan, Trump plans to keep his campaign office in Trump Tower open during his first presidential term to work on re-election efforts, Politico reported.
