Donald Trump has announced his 2020 election slogan will be “Keep America Great!”
The US president, speaking at a a rally in the industrial heartland of Pennsylvania, said: “We can’t say ‘Make America Great Again’ because I already did that. I can’t use that in three years, two-and-half years, it’s close.
“I’m almost positive, you can never be 100 per cent sure, but our new slogan when we start running is going to be ‘Keep America Great…exclamation mark.”
Mr Trump added: “I look forward to 2020 because I want to see how far left the person we’re running against is going to be.”
In a speech that was peripatetic even by Mr Trump’s standards he also railed against the European Union on tariffs, which he called “my baby,” said he hoped for the “greatest deal” with North Korea, and strongly advocated the death penalty for drug dealers.
The president, speaking to thousands of raucous supporters in an airport hangar near Pittsburgh, also said he would love to run against Oprah Winfrey in 2020 because he “knows her weakness”.
Amid allegations of an affair with a porn star, which he denies, Mr Trump also lavished praise on his wife Melania, calling her an “amazing first lady” and adding: “You think her life is so easy folks? Not so easy.”
