    US President Donald Trump at a rally in Orlando, Florida on Tuesday officially launched his 2020 re-election campaign, as Democratic rivals prepare for their first primary debate amid inter-party clashes over possible impeachment.

    A Quinnipiac University Poll revealed on Tuesday that voters in the US state of Florida would choose any of the top six Democratic presidential candidates rather than give the 45th US president another term in office.

    Trump has rejected early survey results, however, noting that in 2016 almost every poll picked Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton to win, stressing that "our polls show us leading in all 17 Swing States".

      'We Went Through the Biggest Witch Hunt' in History - Trump

      Trump made Tuesday an issue of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election.

      "We went through the biggest witch hunt in political history", Trump said. "It was all an illegal attempt to overturn the results of the election".

      The Mueller investigation concluded that Trump's campaign team did not collude with Russia, but described 10 instances that may constitute possible obstruction of justice. However, US Attorney General William Barr concluded that the evidence against Trump in the Mueller report did not constitute obstruction of justice.

      Russia has repeatedly denied accusations of interference in the US political system, saying the allegations were made up to excuse the election loss of Trump's 2016 opponent Hillary Clinton, as well as deflect public attention from actual instances of election fraud and corruption.
