As the Democrats held their first 2020 presidential debate, U.S. President Donald Trump retweeted a bizarre video that Fox News described as “sure to send shivers down the spines of his biggest critics.”

The video, which Trump first tweeted last Friday, was a mock cover of Time Magazine depicting the Trump 2020 sign counting up ever for years and eventually reading “TRUMP 4EVA” - implying that Trump will remain president indefinitely. 

Veteran conservative activist Ralph Reed said Wednesday that the faith-based group he leads plans to spend at least $50 million on get-out-the-vote efforts in 2020 for Trump.

It’s part of a large-scale marshaling of evangelical resources that’s poised to benefit Trump’s reelection campaign.

After Trump spoke to an annual conference hosted by Reed’s group, the Faith & Freedom Coalition, the longtime GOP strategist previewed a voter outreach plan for 2020 that he said would include significant investment in Latino voters of faith.

Of the $50 million the group has set aside to spend on communicating with voters, Reed said $4 million would go toward contacting socially conservative and religious Latino voters in swing states that include Florida, Colorado, Nevada and Arizona.

“We will do our job. We will turn out our vote,” Reed told reporters.

The Faith & Freedom Coalition’s work on turning out voters, particularly Latinos, who support socially conservative issues such as abortion restrictions, will help bolster the Republican Party’s efforts to deliver Trump a second term.
