tv The Ingraham Angle FOX News June 17, 2019 11:00pm-12:00am PDT
on "hannity". we got approximately 4.3 million viewers. he had 3.9. tomorrow night we'll have wall-to-wall coverage of the president in orlando. the president joins us wednesday night. here is laura ingraham. >> laura: i think he beat 60 minutes in the demo as far as i could tell. he was up against the u.s. open, which is something. i think a lot of people were tuning into for goodness sakes. >> sean: we thank the audience. this show, tucker, you, thank god you have made us number one in cable and we want to earn everyone's trust every day. but to be on a network and get your ass kicked and i only did a phone interview by little own sean hannity. he needs to pack it up. that is humiliating for him. >> laura: what i don't understand is did they shrink the presidential limo? they looked like they were
spooning with each other. a little too close for me. the twins with danny diveto and -- >> sean: you dive through it and break the window open. >> laura: it's 10:00. great show as always. things change at 10. >> sean: goodbye. >> laura: i'm laura ingraham and the "the ingraham angle" from washington tonight. ahead of trump's 2020 campaign launch tomorrow my angle offers some advice that you'll only see tonight plus folks were camped out for a day and a half in advance of the president's big rally in orlando. we'll take you on the ground for a live report of some of those waiting. do they have their grills out and cooking? waiting for the next apple launch. also tonight ralph reed says he will mobilize the most
ambitious evangelical turnout for trump on record. how does he plan to do it? he will tell us. and many of the top 2020 dems were in south carolina to pitch african-american voters on their candidacy. are they delivering what the audience wants? dr. cornel is here tonight. the president's relaunch is the focus of tonight's angle. tomorrow night president trump is formally launching his reelection campaign in orlando, florida. and as i said, the crowd is already lining up 40 hours early. but the usual suspects in the media were falling all over themselves to preemotion -- rain on the rally. they think the president trump's abc news interview with stephanopoulos gave him their opening.
>> he abdicated his oath of office. he did it the other day on stephanopoulos's interview. he is not protecting the national security interests of the united states. he is not committed to protecting our election integrity and security. >> laura: yes, he is. as we explained last week in the angle that argument is absurd. now, in fact, in many critical areas the trump administration has taken a tougher stance against russia than the obama administration has done. we've documented that show after show. but none of that matters when the reporter asking the questions has an agenda, even if he is aimable in the process. the agenda namely to resuscitate and revisit the mueller report. and even by the way when the president expresses minor anow answer not related to russia or mueller they try to make him out to be the bad guy. >> president trump: it's a fantastic financial statement. it is a fantastic financial statement and let's do that
over. he is coughing in the middle of my answer. i don't like that, you know? if you're going to cough, please leave the room. you want to do that a little differently there? >> we changed the angle. >> at some point -- at some point i look forward to frankly i would like to have people see my financial statement. >> laura: everyone who does tv knows they're honest that that was lousy form for stephanopoulos not to stop the cameras from rolling and air that entire exchange but hey, anything to advance the trump's mean narrative. the last part is telling where he does the -- and so he is just wronged in some meaningful way by his chief of staff coughing. >> laura: or maybe it was all a plot. >> one theory i read, given the
subject and the sensitivity surrounding his tax returns somebody pointed out maybe it was mick mulvaney trying to save the president and not trying to create a sound bite that could be used later on for abc. >> laura: cough gate. more goofyness. how many times if i said that to raymond, stop coughing? we were howling when it happened. let's get serious. tomorrow in orlando the president has a chance to relaunch this campaign and just hit every note. i think part of it is shrugging off the inclination to relitigate every past issue, insult, tweet, investigation. and the best way to frame all of this is look at what we've been able to accomplish even with two years of the russia hoax. >> you've got the stock market flirting with record highs, the near record low unemployment.
>> gdp growth continuing at better than expected rates. >> under president trump 450,000 manufacturing jobs have been added. >> unemployment is the lowest it's been here in the united states since 1969. job growth is strong, hourly wages are up. >> laura: that should be the play list for trump 2020. if any other president were doing the things trump is doing for this economy, for jobs, for workers, taking on china most of the media would be throwing rose pet alls and parade. who else has worked more diligently to -- >> president trump: we're forcing competition and driving down costs, that's what's happening and one of the reasons we're getting the drug prices stopping from those tremendous increases that have
taken effect for so many years for so many decades they've been going one direction, up. >> laura: who else has cut regulations like this president has to unburden american businesses? who else has recognized and responded to the crisis at the border like trump? using a threat of terrorists and diplomatic pressure trump has gotten mexico to step up finally on their immigration enforcement. >> president trump's new immigration deal with mexico starting to show an impact. 6,000 mexican soldiers deployed along the country's southern border with guatemala. stopping some caravans and people on rafts and 800 migrants stopped near the texas border over the weekend. >> laura: but for trump they all would have surely made it to the u.s. border and who else has stood up to the chinese on the world stage? to end the ongoing beijing orchestrated rip-off of american industry and intech
taou all property. only trump. i haven't talked about criminal justice reform. tax reform. renegotiating nafta. judicial appointments. the only response from democrats who are running for president is russia, identity politics, demonizing wealth creators and of course the go-to we'll give you free stuff. >> every american regardless of his or her income is entitled to the right to a decent job that pays a living wage. >> technical school, two-year college, four-year public college all free and tuition-free for all of our kids. >> i think that anyone who is in a situation where they are in need of healthcare, regardless of whether they're documented or undocumented, we have an obligation to see they are cared for. >> laura: they leave out the part where you'll pay through the nose for all of this.
while the government makes more decisions for you, your family, and your business. that means less freedom. well, trump needs to remind america if they send bernie, elizabeth or uncle joe to the white house the democrat socialists will run out of other people's money and what happens then? the country's economy will crumble into an abyss of mediocrity. >> no, god, please, no, no, no! no! >> laura: that's how i feel. on a serious note the trump reelection message should be simple, do you want to keep the good times going and make america even stronger? are you better off than you were in january 2017? some of you may not like some of trump's tweets. but you are going to hate what democrats will do to the prosperity that his policies have created. that's the angle. joining me now house minority
leader whip steve scalise and texas lieutenant governor dan patrick. dan, you're in orlando tonight meeting with the trump team. what will his message be tomorrow? you heard my little bit of advice there. >> i think your advice is on target. he can't help but take some shots at the media. that does get the crowd excited and keeps them on their toes but he has had an incredible record as you pointed out. here is the key. in 2016, 62,980,160 people voted for the president. some took a chance, remember, he said to some hey, what do you have to lose? some weren't sure. the conservative community or christian community. now all of those people are family. every one of those 62,980,160 people have bought in because president trump said what he was going to do, he did what he said he was going to do. politicians have never done that. say what you are going to do, do what you say you are going
to do. he has kept every promise. these people all those 62 million are with him. multiply that by how many bring more people? i can tell you just in texas people i knew from the business community thought he was too conservative. go down the list. they're all now in. i gross that up by 15, 20% more at 75 million votes and why he gets reelected. he did what he said he would do and that is what he was supposed to do. people respect him for that and they're family. i've had the privilege to be in the limousine with him several times. they're with you, they know you and love you and bring more people to the tent. >> laura: congressman scalise everyone is obsessing on battleground polls. trump internal polls supposedly said stoeg. i don't really care about the polls right now although i do think trump's numbers on just the overall approval can be higher and should be.
you don't want your approval with this economy, you know, anywhere -- you want it up in the high 40s at least and we don't have an honest media. if we had an honest media the numbers would be higher. what is your take now when the democrats are committing money to states like texas. dan is the lieutenant governor of texas but texas is that in any way in play or is that just pie in the sky thinking for the democrats? >> laura, first of all i go back and look at some of the same polls in 2016. those were the same people who were saying that hillary clinton was going to win pennsylvania. hillary clinton was going to walk away with michigan. wisconsin wasn't even if play. by the way, florida and ohio were going to be razor thin close. i would go to those states when i would travel around helping out other congressional candidates and i would come back home and people would be depressed and say i've seen these polls saying there is no way trump can win and i said i
just came from pennsylvania and people are so fired up about this president's message. at the time he was a candidate. what he has done, laura, his message. he has followed through on it with real commitment in terms of making people's lives better. as you talked about so many things that president trump has done in terms of helping every segment of our society from the lowest income to people who gave up hope all together. people had left the workforce, the millions and millions of people who didn't even show up in the unemployment rolls that are now working. part of the american dream. and if i could sum it up any way, what president trump has done not just all the individual things you can tout. he fought for the forgotten men and women. he made government work for the people who had been left behind in the obama economy. and so that's what -- if all the other things that you can add up, he has a lot of great accomplishments he can tout. the fact that he actually went and fought for those people who had given up on government, that's what he -- is his
greatest achievement of so many. >> laura: dan, you say no but here is what joe biden says about where he can beat trump. >> i plan on campaigning in the south. i plan if i'm your nominee winning georgia, south carolina and i believe we can win texas and florida. i have no intention of walking away if i'm the nominee. >> not a prayer in large part because of prayer, i might say. look, the hispanic population, heavy pro-catholic and evangelical won't vote for a democrat that is pro-abortion. they're not pro-choice. they're the pro-abortion party. take all the hispanic voters in texas and south trump wins easily 40 to 50%. the african-american vote in the south. jobs, economy is better, they're doing better. no way with the leftist socialist policies that joe biden will have to tout to get
lieu the primary that anyone in texas or mississippi or alabama or georgia or south carolina, north carolina are going to vote for these people. >> laura: i have to go quick to scalise. congressman, quickly. this record is an unbelievably strong record. the economy is about as good as it -- i think it can be. maybe it can get stroerng but an amazing economy. anyone who says anything else is just lying. >> right. >> laura: is there anything you would suggest the president might do differently to make women feel more comfortable about voting for him who may be for whatever reason a little bit ansi about some issues? >> as long as the president keeps talking about some of the things he has fought for. suburban women, women across the country that you talk to are concerned about. they want a secure country and a border that's secure. president trump has fought harder than any president
republican or democrat in recent memory to secure the border. they see the caravans coming in. the fact that president trump fought to stop human trafficking. the president can talk a lot more about what he has done to combat human trafficking with real results that he has been able to deliver for people. that's something that's real important. something else that's really important, too, not only suburban women but men and women and families across the country are healthcare costs. the fact that president trump is trying to lower healthcare costs. while protecting pre-existing conditions and the democrats what they call medicare for all. socialized medicine. >> laura: gentlemen, thank you so much. i appreciate it. trump's critics have also seized on this moment from the abc interview. >> you didn't answer questions on obstructions. >> president trump: wait a minute i answered them in writing. they gave me a lot of questions. >> not on obstruction. >> president trump: you're being a little wise guy.
very simple, it's very simple. there was no crime. >> laura: joining me now is a former deputy assistant attorney general. who has it right here? i love that part of the interview. i thought the president was great there. but george stephanopolous -- you didn't answer questions of the special counsel in person basically on obstruction. >> so they are both kind of right. president trump is clearly right that he answered questions in writing. and that he -- that mueller did not find any kind of collusion. george stephanopolous, i think, might be correct although we haven't seen it all that president trump did not answer questions on obstruction in writing but none of it was in person. mueller could have pressed to try to get an interview in person which would have caused a huge constitutional conflict. >> laura: he decided not to do that. >> it was up to mueller to press forward. mueller says we could have but decided we want to wrap up the report quickly and avoid a
constitutional clash. >> laura: i think the president was right in how he answered this question. >> president trump: he found no collusion and nothing to do with obstruction because they made a ruling based on his findings and said no obstructions. >> he laid out evidence -- >> president trump: are you trying to say now there was collusion even though he said there is no collusion. he said no collusion. >> he said he didn't look at it. >> president trump: the report said no collusion. >> did you read the report? >> president trump: yes, i do. you should read it, too. >> laura: focusing on the collusion issue. there was no conspiracy or cooperation purposeful between trump and russia to effect the outcome of the election unless i read something wrong, correct? >> i think this one trump gets an a and stephanopoulos gets an f. if you read the report it says not just that mueller says insufficient evidence. he said there is no conspiracy at all.
>> laura: basically used as a synonym there, correct? >> the mueller report doesn't say there is no conspiracy but other stuff. he said there is no evidence. not insufficient evidence. no evidence. that's a major clear statement. no evidence and conspiracy between the trump campaign and the russians. i don't know where stephanopoulos is thinking that mueller kind of made some kind of wishy-washy finding that leaves some -- >> laura: nobody was thinking that on collusion, correct? on this issue going back to the issue of his lawyers, like any smart lawyer, like you would advise or i would advise my client. the idea that you would march your client in, the president of the united states, to talk to the mueller team? you should never work again if you're a lawyer. stephanopoulos doesn't understand that? i don't understand. >> part of it was you don't want mueller and prosecutors to try to play games to trick the president to committing perjury about something that he didn't do.
>> laura: that wasn't a crime. >> the major point is that the president did not commit any kind of conspiracy with the russians. if you knew that would be true. if you already know you didn't do anything illegal in the first place. >> laura: the people on the team were phenomenal. i wouldn't be doing a long interview with stephanopoulos. whether it was 30 hours or five hours. i don't know why that was. i think the president did fine. thank you so much. 2020 democrat fanatic disconnected with the priorities of african-american voters? the new poll that should serve as a big wake-up call dr. cornel west joins me to break down what the candidates might down what the candidates might be missing next. my experience with usaa has been excellent. they really appreciate the military family and it really shows. with all that usaa offers why go with anybody else? we know their rates are good, we know that they're always going to take care of us. it was an instant savings and i should have changed a long time ago.
because i like to live life in the fast lane. unlike my parents. you rambling about xfinity again? you're so cute when you get excited... anyways... i've got their app right here, i can troubleshoot. i can schedule a time for them to call me back, it's great! you have our number programmed in? ya i don't even know your phone anymore... excuse me?! what? i don't know your phone number. aw well. he doesn't know our phone number! you have our fax number, obviously... today's xfinity service. simple. easy. awesome. i'll pass. >> i firmly support congresswoman jackson lee's bill to create -- >> i support that bill. >> i support that bill. >> when i am elected president -- >> laura: that's not the only litmus test 2020 dems are pushing when it comes to the
african-american communities. harris, gillibrand, warren, have all outlined programs calling for a federal jobs guarantee. but where does that leave them with these voters? top tier 2020 dems descend on south carolina for the black economic alliance forum a poll commissioned by that same group found that reparations and a federal job guarantee were listed at the bottom of what they feel would help them most. interesting. joining me now exclusively to respond is dr. cornell west, philosophy professor at harvard and professor emeritus at princeton. is this a disconnect and it show that democrats may be taking this voting block for granted? >> well, thanks for having me back. i do just want to acknowledge the passing of my dear appreciate -- these are deeper than politics and we have him in our thoughts and those of us
who are religious have him in our prayers. very much so. your question is an important one. i think that when you look at the history of black people we've always had a variety of different perspectives. we work at the lens through slavery and very excited about this discussion about reparations. it is just a matter of telling the truth about the american past. when brother danny glover go to washington they'll say let's have a serious discussion about it. it is not a major priority. symbolically it means that black suffering counts and it ought to be poor people suffering counts, working people suffering counts and that's why, my dear sister, bernie sanders, wins in polls 25 out of 26 against brother trump. he is the strongest candidate coming out of the democratic party because the neoliberals in the party have not been able to speak to the issue of jobs with a living wage.
haven't been able to speak to the issue of quality education. >> laura: dr. west on the issue of just what works for people in general, take race out of it. we have a lot of people coming from nigeria, from somalia, a big conga community. they are here and they're not tuned in to kind of the old, you know, the concerns of many african-americans, that's not their story. so they're here and they're trying to get a job or trying to get -- take care of their family or have healthcare. so there is a lot of different voices here in the black community and my thought is that there is not -- there is not enough democrats actually speaking to the wide berth of voices just even in that racial group. you see what i'm saying? the country is so diverse today and different. it is not the country of 50 years ago. it is very, very different.
>> that's very true but even the new black immigrants from the caribbean and africa. they have a concern about racism. the crucial thing is the ways in which the economic plight. when we talk about the amazing economy. i've given brother trump credit and acknowledge the economy looks very good statistically but 40% of our fellow citizens are either in poverty or living near poverty and why william barber and others are there in washington, d.c. talking about the poor people. 40%. one out of two of black and brown children, appreciateous children under 6 years old live in poverty in the richest nation in the world. the homelessness. >> laura: you are playing a loop, though. you are speaking like nothing has changed. and -- >> i acknowledge that the
statistics are better, no doubt about that. >> laura: , no it's not just statistics. we had an amazing event last week in washington where former convicts are actually now getting -- having doors opened for them instead of slammed in their face because of the second chance initiative. so as an american >> that's a beautiful thing. >> laura: so it's not just the statistics. those are real people being helped. we don't have time to play the sound bite. this is a great event and i keep saying where are all the liberals. why is there no embrace of trump for what he is doing here? i'm telling you the reason they're not doing is they don't want to give him credit. he is making people's lives better. tangible. it's tangible. >> but here is where i draw the distinction between the neoliberals in the democratic party and the genuine progressives like bernie sanders. he is concerned about those
concrete realities you're talking about but the suffering is still too much. it is still -- we don't have enough schools, not enough jobs with a living wage. we aren't talking about socialism. we're talking about justice and fairness. justice and fairness. you got tax abatement, subsidies for the well to do. that's free stuff, too. let's make sure our children have food, quality education, job with a living wage and moral issues. >> laura: that's why the democrats shouldn't attack what obama said he was for, school choice. obama was for school choice. democrats want to shut down any competition for public schools. that's another topic. >> we have a lot to talk about there absolutely. >> laura: i'm still having lunch with you in cambridge and we'll shock everybody. dr. west, appreciate it.
>> laura: the follow-up to an issue we've been sounding an alarm about. the dangers of legalizing marijuana. now it appears some in the media are finally waking up to the dangers. within hours of each other yesterday both the "washington post" and "the new york times" posted articles with new warnings. under the headline potent pot, vulnerable teens trigger concerns in first state to legalize marijuana. with some marijuana products averaging 68% thc greater than the pot baby boomers once smoked, calls to poison control centers and visits to e.r. have
risen and children's hospital for treatment of vomiting paranoia, psychosis jumped to 777 from 161 in 2005. you still think the drug is harmless? then in the "new york times" this. marijuana damages young brains. states that legalize it should set a minimum age of 25 or older. the writers who are both physicians say, quote, researchers found an i.q. decline over the 25 year period for adolescents who used marijuana every week. in addition studies have shown that substantial adolescent exposure may be a predictor of opioid use disorders. right now 33 states and d.c. currently have passed laws broadly legalizing marijuana in
some form. if they care about children and young people at all they should at the least consider adding some protections. and then there is this just days ago in nevada democratic governor signed into law a bill that would prevent companies from denying employment based on a failed drug test. the measure comes two years after recreational marijuana sales began in the silver state. here now to debate the proponent of this bill along with tina from the las vegas chapter of the national organization for the reform of marijuana laws. all right, tina. you don't have concerns about the potential for cognitive decline in applicants who smoke pot given what we just laid out moments ago, the journal of american medical association study, the journal of american
psychiatry study. it's shocking until the mainstream media haven't told us about what pot does especially to the developing brain. >> for myself i've been inundated with all positive statistics like 24% reduction in states that have medical marijuana in opioid fatalities. so i've been focusing on the positive statistics that come from it. nevada voters did vote for recreational cannabis two years ago and treated like alcohol in question two and what we're asking today. >> laura: you're saying the concerns about your increased risk of everything from schizophrenia, to bipolar disorder, cognitive impairment, depression, long-term suicide effect, you discount any of that and you think the studies are wrong, the study out of montreal, that the all wrong, too? >> right. i'm focusing on what this drug
can do as a exit drug instead of an entrance drug. the fact of the matter is we have an opioid epidemic and pills kill. this is a white suburban problem. i haven't seen too many stories about myself or any other cannabis users having schizophrenia but we have to attack the opioid addiction. the prescription companies have been hit hard. hard to get opioids. people are turning to heroin laced with fentanyl. if we could get folks treatment by getting them cannabis we would save people like many -- >> laura: that's not what "the new york times" found. the story we just referenced said the opposite. randy, you can get in on this. i can't remember a time where i read a heartbreaking or harrowing story of someone who was on a really awful drug or even addicted to opioids who hadn't tried marijuana. i'm not saying it's a gateway but most people dying of meth
started somewhere along the line on pot. that's anecdotal. on the other stuff it's devastating evidence for what it does to the young brain. >> what if we could use cannabis to get them off meth? >> laura: one thing we have to do is get both sides on this actual show. go ahead. >> we're more focused on the employee and not necessarily on the young brain but when nevada legalized recreational use we saw a significant increase in positive drug testing in the workplace, 37% of nevada employees were using drugs and going to work every day. so we've been dealing with this issue for several years now and trying to figure out how best to face the fact that we've got conflicting laws. the law that passed in nevada says you have to hire someone if they test positive that totally conflicts with federal law that calls it a controlled substance. we're putting employers in a really tough spot and we need to federal government to take
action here. >> employers that came to the legislators who said we can't find anybody that can pass a drug test. resorts and entertainment. >> laura: can't find anyone who can pass a drug test. hold on a second. here is what i think bill barr has to do as the attorney general. i think randi is right, there is a problem when this is a federal crime and yet states have legalized marijuana. the federal government wants to put its hands up in the air. this is a problem. i think this conflict, whatever position you have on this particular issue of drug testing, this shows that we have a conflict and both of you did a great job. thank you so much. and ralph reed says he plans to mobilize the most ambitious evangelical turnout for president trump in the
faith and freedom coalition president ralph reed says he has a plan to get both of those numbers even higher. he joins us now exclusively. great to see you. it's already pretty substantial. how do you turn out more faith-based voters than before? >> well, the first thing you do is you grow the pie, laura. and we estimate even with those huge numbers, they were impressive. trump got the largest share of this vote of anybody in the history of modern exit polling. there are 15 million and 17 million of those voters who aren't registered to vote or didn't turn out. our plan is to register, grow the pie, register a million to two million of these faith-based voters. that's a big deal. remember, trump won the presidency by a combined total of 80,000 votes spread out over
three states. so if you were to add 50 to 100,000 new faith based voters in key states it's a game changer. >> laura: ralph, hold on. they are going to -- their plan is to add a lot of new voters, too. they intend to add a lot of the folks who came from puerto rico to florida. 120,000. they'll bring in more women, more minorities. so they have the plan, too. but that is -- i think what they're doing already, ralph, i thought of you because i heard this. this guy, guy cecil. he called out evangelicals and you. >> this conservative evangelical christian nationalism that grew out of the 1980s in a concerted effort
by right wing christian conservatives like ralph reed and the christian coalition who sought to do their very best with white evangelical christians to conflate nationalism with their faith. >> laura: you see what's going on here and trying to tar people? >> wow. >> laura: i'm looking out for you. i had to play that for you. >> that's funny, laura. because i actually went to the mount where jesus is reported to have delivered the sermon on the mount and guy and i read scripture verses together and he never said anything to me about that. i've actually worked in the minority community for decades mobilizing african-americans and hispanics who share my faith and values. i think that if the left thinks that we are going to concede the hispanic and african-american community to them, particularly in the pews in 2020, they're in for a big
wake-up call. we'll do a lot in those communities as well. >> laura: well, ralph, we really appreciate it. we could talk to you for an hour. so much more to get to on this. up next we're still about 21 hours away from president trump's 2020 campaign launch in florida. but his supporters have been lined up since sunday. we're live on the ground to talk to some of those who are camping out for the big rally camping out for the big rally in just a few moments. when we started our business we were paying an arm and a leg for postage.

rsvped for this event but it only holds 25,000. >> i got here at 2:30 in the morning because this is one of the most important elections in our nation's history. >> what did you bring with you today? >> food and water. and a hammock. >> we had a thunderstorms earlier today. what was it like for you to be out in the rain? >> i was actually in training so i wants out in the rain. >> no problem. great. >> weren't scared of lightning? >> no problem. >> what does it mean to you? >> i'm excited to be here to see and be donald trump announcing his second run. >> lots of excitement around here. thank you very much. the doors will open at 5:00 tomorrow. they have a long wait out here. the president will take the
stage at 8:00 tomorrow night. back to you, laura. >> laura: it's loud. like the people in line for the apple product launch or the new "star wars" movie. it's wild. they're having fun. good for them. thanks so much. we appreciate it. our own ramon will cover the president's campaign kickoff tomorrow night in orlando. that will be fun.
we are a few hours from donald trump's 2020 reelection launch. you can see it live on fox news. raymond arroyo will be here talking to those camped out and a live report at 10:00 pm. that is all-time we have tonight. don't forget my podcast and shannon bream and the fox news at 19, take it from here. shannon: we begin with a fox news alert. iran threatens to breach its nuclear limit within days. the pentagon says more us troops could be headed to the middle east and new evidence related to two attacks as its leaders deny and point the fingers at the us. general jack keane is here. crowds gather in florida on the eve of donald trump's campaign relaunch, top democratic contenders
