President Trump officially launched his re-election campaign with a rally at the 20,000-person capacity Amway Center in Orlando, Florida on Tuesday evening.
Between the lines: Florida is a key 2020 battleground. Trump won by a narrow margin there in 2016 with 48.6% of the vote to his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton's 47.4%. The 2018 midterms showed narrow Republican wins for Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) and Sen. Rick Scott.
Chicago police responded to hundreds of people looting stores and causing widespread property damage in the city's downtown overnight, resulting in at least one exchange of gunfire, the Chicago Tribune reports.
The state of play: Police superintendent David Brown said the event was a coordinated response after an officer shot a suspect on Sunday evening, per CBS Chicago.
