He's still an outsider, he tells adoring crowd

  • New slogan in the works? The rally was mostly a "Greatest Hits" one, but new material included complaints about Democrats "who refuse to concede an election," counting "imposing sanctions on Russia" as one of the administration's achievements, and signs that he is planning a new slogan, the Washington Post reports. He told the crowd that "Keep America Great" might replace "Make America Great Again," and asked them to cheer for their favorite.
  • "Everything Trump wanted." The Orlando rally was everything the "optics-obsessed" president could have wanted, with thousands of "adoring supporters" in MAGA hats, Politico reports. There was a festival-like atmosphere outside the rally, and inside, supporters compared it to a rock concert even before he took the stage.
  • He went easy on his rivals. Trump spoke of Democrats in general as unhinged radicals bent on turning America into a socialist country, but he didn't spend long talking about his rivals, apart from "Sleepy" Joe Biden, the New York Times reports. "Our political opponents look down with hatred on our values and with utter disdain for the people whose lives they want to run, divide the American people up," he said. "Our job is to allow (them) not to do that."
