President Donald Trump made it official Tuesday night in Orlando: He's running to keep America great.

It was quite the spectacle at the Amway Center, with thousands of adoring fans donned in red, white and blue and MAGA hats lined up hours, even days before the event to show their support for the president. And as soon as he took to the stage, the crowd roared with  cheers and "U-S-A" chants.

“It turned out to be more than just a great political campaign. It turned out to be a great political movement because of you,” the president said. “It’s a movement made up of people … who believe that a nation must care for its own citizens first.”

Don Jr., the oldest son, lead off the festivities with a series of attacks against Joe Biden. Vice President Mike Pence promised the crowd that four more years “means more jobs, more judges … and at least four more years to drain the swamp.”

And when Trump grabbed the mic, he followed suit by hailing his accomplishments thus far and running down what more he could do if elected to a second term.

It was everything the Trump campaign could have hoped for, with some in attendance comparing it to a rock concert before the event even began.
