Trump filed for reelection shortly after taking office in 2017, and he has held campaign rallies in Florida and Pennsylvania in recent weeks. But he had teased a larger kickoff announcement and will hold it in the Sunshine State, which figures to feature prominently in the outcome of the 2020 race.

The president is banking on a strong economy and solid support among Republicans for his reelection bid. His approval rating has stagnated in the low-40s for most of his presidency, though a Harvard CAPS/Harris Poll survey released Friday showed Trump with his highest rating in two years at 48 percent.

The president appears to be increasingly focused on 2020, as he has been fixated on assessing the field of potential Democratic challengers in recent weeks.
