Despite what mass media would have you think, the vast majority of people in our country stand with Trump.
To prove it, the president’s supporters are ALREADY camping out for Trump’s official announcement of his re-bid for 2020 presidency, which he is set to declare tomorrow night at a historic rally at the Amway Center in Orlando, FL.
Check it out:
President Trump is prepared for the huge outturn expected at Tuesday's rally.
In a tweet he posted earlier, Trump said that he's already had over 100K requests to attend the rally, which is setting records - so much so that large movie screens are being put up at the Amway Center to accompany them all.

Click Orlando has more details on this moment in history:
More than 40 hours before President Donald Trump will announce his re-election bid in Orlando, supporters started lining up outside the Amway Center.
Eight Trump supporters started camping out Monday morning, with the first one showing up at 2:30 a.m. The rally is scheduled to begin at 8 p.m. Tuesday.
Gary Beck, a Trump supporter from Panama City, was the first in line.
"There's going to be a bunch of people, and it's going to be pretty intense," Beck said. "The electricity is going to be high. It's time for America to get back on its feet and be made better than it's ever been before."
Trump tweeted Monday that the rally "looks to be setting records," with more than 100,000 ticket requests. The Amway Center seats 20,000.
"We are building large movie screens outside to take care of everybody," Trump tweeted.
The visit marks Trump's first campaign event in Orlando since he ended his 2016 presidential campaign with a "Thank You Tour" stop at the Central Florida Fairgrounds.
Trump's last visit to the Orlando area was in October 2018 when he spoke at the International Association of Chiefs of Police at the Orange County Convention Center.
Trump's early strength in Florida on the night of the 2016 election was the first sign he was about to score an upset victory. In an otherwise bleak 2018 for Republicans, the state was again a bright spot.
But as another campaign heats up, Democrats aren't ceding the Sunshine State.
Democratic candidates have already visited to tap donors and connect with voters and will descend on Miami later this month for their first debates.
And Trump will return on Tuesday for his latest re-election announcement at a rally in Orlando.
The attention is recognition that, despite its expensive media markets and hyper-polarized politics, neither party can ignore Florida.
For Trump, there are few ways for him to remain in the White House without keeping Florida's 29 electoral votes.
What to know about Trump's visit
Ticket requests for the event have quadrupled the capability of the Amway Center, which holds 20,000 people. The president said in a tweet last week the event will be “the hottest of them all,” with 74,000 ticket requests already made for the event. He upped that number to 100,000 in a tweet Monday morning.
Fox News also said:
Supporters of President Trump already have started lining up outside Orlando’s Amway Center for the president’s official re-election campaign kickoff rally – more than 40 hours before the event is scheduled to start.
In a scene befitting a "Star Wars" premiere or new iPhone launch, Orlando-area media were reporting that the first Trump supporters began camping outside the arena as early as 2:30 a.m. Monday for Trump’s rally slated to start at 8 p.m. on Tuesday.
"There's going to be a bunch of people, and it's going to be pretty intense," Gary Beck, who was the first person in line on Monday morning, told local media. "The electricity is going to be high. It's time for America to get back on its feet and be made better than it's ever been before."
The president tweeted on Monday morning that his campaign has received more than 100,000 ticket requests for the event in an arena that only holds 20,000 people.
“Big Rally tomorrow night in Orlando, Florida, looks to be setting records,” Trump tweeted. “Our Country is doing great, far beyond what the haters & losers thought possible - and it will only get better!”
