diehards trump supporters in orlando more than 24 hours before the rally they were already camping out here this is to us maureen and lorien told us they barely slept to get into the 1st floor. we wanted to see our president class with other rallies but just to us this is a historical that. can pick up most of the rally go as voted for trump in 2016 and are eager to do so again we use a poor president because he's fulfilled everything that he promised to do and that's why he's a man of his word and we we believe that true leadership comes from being a man of your word it's important for me beard to bring attention to basically an election issue that i support i support barriers on america's southern border primarily to keep illegal narcotics and human trafficking out nori that was crucial to president strums 2016 election victory and he still seems to be quite popular
8:03 am
here but despite a growing economy and low unemployment the trunk company is facing a tough paths to reelection its internal polling data shows trump behind top democratic contenders in key states and just relying on his core supporters might be not enough to pull off another victory in november next year. but this night was all about optimism and the will to win and donald trump took the stage in a land. tonight i stand before you to officially launch my campaign for a 2nd term as president and i think. i can promise you that i will never ever let you down i won't take boosting to terrorist spending judicial appointment in orlando tromped out it's what he called he's great a cheap. yes at the same time he attacked his political opponents demonstrating how
8:04 am
much his cum pain appears to rely on us versus them rhetoric no matter what label they use a vote for any democrat in 2020 is a vote for the rise of radical socialism and the destruction of the american dream . words that acknowledge the anger and passion of chimes 2016 campaign and went down well with these core supporters in florida. alexander phenomena put that report together for us he joins us now from orlando good day to you alexandra 20000 people packed into the amway stadium there for that a rally can you give us some more of your impressions of what was happening there. what really struck me of brian was the fact that trump supporters seem to be very
8:05 am
loyal they voted for donald trump in 2016 and they are still supporting him although we have to say that he did not keep all the promises he had to made just take as an example the border which he has been talking about building the border wall for 2 and a half years now and nothing happened so far but that people there here in the lower land they still support if they don't pay for that they rather blame the democrats so they seem to have a special bond with donald trump i talked to many of them $1.00 of the troubled all the way from california saying that it is important for him to be here to support his president listening to the speech there and talking to the people as you did alexandra what are the main issues the president's going to be campaigning on this time around. president clumped talk about cues
8:06 am
he had to talk to for immigration health care or military spending trade so my impression was that he didn't really offer any new holy seas or a new agenda that would help him expand his political appeal he rather cut teen youths to attack his opponents calling the democrats and the angry left wing mob and promising his supporters to wage battle relentless battle on their behalf xandra as trump launches his reelection campaign we're seeing some contradictory polling results in the key battleground states where he's facing off again against the democrats those are ohio pennsylvania florida why are those states so very important for donald trump. every one of them
8:07 am
is very important for donald trump let's take a high oh for example there is a saying that no republican president or republican politician can be elected as president or be reelected without winning ohio and in doesn't look good for president strummed there are at least a cold according to the latest polls polls when we look at the floor in that florida he seems to be still quite popular here but according to the latest data that was leaked from he's campaigned he is here behind joe biden one of 2020 democratic hopefuls and when we looked at canceling or wisconsin very important states for donald trump it also looks like people there are not very happy with the 1st 2 and a half years of his presidency alexander thanks very much for your report and for

8:11 am
a work permit and land which is provided by the communities and then you neighbors they also receive monthly benefits. we have cash on foot as well because when we give them food get that is restricted to the 4 that we've given them but when you give them cash you have the option to buy and supplement whatever that debt that that is so it's optional ugandans have a strong willingness to give to those in need for 20 years they also suffered during the civil war they also benefit from international aid which can be used to build hospitals or schools but of course there are still challenges. as a young school we have an almost island is one of it is the infrastructure like the classrooms are not and now we don't how science a laboratory we don't have a library though we have the books but we haven't know where to put them there are

8:13 am
roads into it if it is a tremendous well constructed discourse of course structed it is. but there are also negative aspects rizzo's is like would supplies onto enduring in january this year almost $6000.00 more refugees arrived in uganda but it wants to keep its borders open and can only manage this influx with the help of aid money at least for the time being as uganda's policies continue to be put into action it's hoped that refugees who become self-sufficient like seamstress he just phony. here in germany investigations into the killing of a regional politician are being stepped up. new police reports indicate that a suspected far right extremist arrested in this case may not have acted alone the victim. was shot in the head at close range earlier this month investigators are looking at whether the suspect now in custody may have been part of

8:16 am
a far right extremist career if i can put it that way starting in the late eighty's . he's been part of the far right scene since then he committed politically motivated crimes a gun and went into found as such he was on the radar of the domestic intelligence service during that time. german m.p.'s say the suspects name appeared in documents from a parliamentary investigation into other far right killings that's now raising questions . what has been done to identify and destroyed by twin terror networks. did officials look into all of the information on the suspects and other known individuals. the experts say they're often skeptical of lone wolf narratives when it comes to the far right and it is a form lonely. the thesis of lone individuals preparing crimes undercover and in isolation. i consider that to be a betrayed sided. and often. people tend to be networked with each other on social
8:17 am

8:18 am
new findings that you reported on that witness report certainly point into this direction a politician i talked to on monday said that he found it very disturbing that investigators had ruled out and that would be very very early into the investigations right after they had arrested the suspect and experts on the right wing terrorism tell us that. terror that right wing extremists often closely know that they are loosely cross-linked with each other but those who are willing to act they are closely linked to look you know we saw your reason cheerier minister in that report and he has also said that this killing is a wake up call what does he mean by that. politicians from all sides are allowed their home affairs committee has called for an extraordinary meeting which is which
