Following the president’s official kickoff of his re-election campaign on Tuesday in Orlando, Florida, Moore is questioning if Democrats are ready to run against Trump, as the president “hasn’t lost one inch” of his voter base.
“I know no one wants to waste that kind of time even looking at him, but not wanting to see the enormity of the fight ahead doesn’t make it go away,” Moore tweeted in response to footage from Trump’s rally.
“He hasn’t lost one inch of his fired-up insane base,” Moore added. “Are u ready?”
Moore is a critic of Trump who said he’d move to Canada if things went downhill following the release of his anti-Trump documentary, joining a list of other celebrities who promised the same thing if Trump were elected.

I watched the whole thing last night. I know no one wants to waste that kind of time even looking at him, but not wanting to see the enormity of the fight ahead doesn’t make it go away. He hasn’t lost one inch of his fired-up insane base. Are u ready?

The liberal activist wasn’t wrong in that Trump “hasn’t lost one inch” of his voter base.
As the Gallup polls reveal, Trump hit his all-time highest approval rating at the tail end of April, in large part due to a booming economy, as he had 46 percent approval. He currently has a 43 percent approval rating from June 3-16.
As for the Republican voters, the president has an 89 percent approval rating, which is identical to a poll from January 20-29, 2017 — a stark contrast to the recent 6 percent approval among Democrat voters.
Some of Trump’s supporters were pumped up for his re-election campaign launch, as they camped out for over 40 hours prior to the event. The president claimed there were “over 100,000 requests” for tickets, but not everyone could come as the building could only hold 20,000 people.
As IJR Red previously reported, McDaniel pointed out that Trump raked in “a record breaking $24.8M in less than 24 hours for his re-election.”
