MILWAUKEE — Wisconsin is officially on President Trump's 2020 radar with Tuesday night's campaign rally in Milwaukee just a few blocks from where Democrats will convene this summer to make their case for the White House.

President Trump kicked off his 2020 reelection effort with a downtown rally and a question.

He asked supporters should he keep the 2016 campaign theme 'Make America Great Again' or change it to...

"Who likes 'Keep America Great?'" President Trump said with a big applause.

During the 90-minute long rally, President Trump attacked and mocked his potential democrat rivals, the pending impeachment senate trial while praising America's military and the airstrike that killed an Iranian general.

"While we are creating jobs and killing terrorists, Democrats in Congress are wasting America's time with demented hoaxes and crazy witch hunts."

President Trump suggested Wisconsin farmers, hurt by his tariffs, will benefit from a new trade deal with Mexico and Canada.

Wisconsin is losing two dairy farms a day as bankruptcies continue.

"With incredible USMCA - Canada, Mexico - a giant victory for Wisconsin workers, farmers and dairy producers."

President Trump talked about the country's record-low unemployment and surging stock markets - while appealing to minority voters as well.

"African American, Hispanic Americans, Asian Americans unemployment rate have reached the lowest levels ever recorded in the history of our country."
