Trump kicked off his campaign with fantasy promises of curing cancer and AIDS and putting a man on Mars during a second term. He knows that won’t happen in the next 4 years, but he also knows his fanatical voters love to be lied to by him about what he can accomplish and that they lie for him when he fails, so he’s going all out. He also knows they will blame anyone else in office for not getting those things if he’s not elected. This is day 1 of his campaign. It will only get crazier from here.
The president made some extravagant promises on Tuesday night as he officially launched his reelection bid at a rally in Orlando, Florida.
