Donald Trump already has a 2020 campaign slogan

President-elect Donald Trump has not even been sworn into office yet, but he already has an optimistic campaign slogan for his 2020 re-election. The reveal came mid-interview with The Washington Post's Karen Tumulty:

Halfway through his interview with The Washington Post, Trump shared a bit of news: He already has decided on his slogan for a reelection bid in 2020.

"Are you ready?" he said. "'Keep America Great,' exclamation point."

"Get me my lawyer!" the president-elect shouted.

Two minutes later, one arrived.

"Will you trademark and register, if you would, if you like it — I think I like it, right? Do this: 'Keep America Great,' with an exclamation point. With and without an exclamation. 'Keep America Great,'" Trump said.

"Got it," the lawyer replied. [The Washington Post]

Perhaps unbeknownst to Trump, "Keep America Great" has already been used by an anti-Trump super PAC as a counter against his 2016 campaign slogan, "Make America Great Again." And there is one other thing to consider before a full embrace of keeping America great — drop the exclamation point. You don't want someone to accuse you of being too low-energy for it.
