The Trump campaign Tuesday launched a new website that lays the groundwork for a re-election run.

It touts President Trump’s achievements — and it solicits contributions.

The campaign described the new website, www.donaldjtrump.com, as a “one-stop” destination to learn about how the president is spurring economic growth and “changing the American political landscape.”

Mr. Trump self-funded most of his run for the GOP nomination in 2016. He began fundraising after securing the nomination, forcing him to play catchup with his Democratic rival.

The new site begins the fundraising effort well in advance of the 2020 race.

The website also gives Mr. Trump another avenue to circumvent the news media, which he routinely dismisses as “fake news.”

Michael Glassner, executive director of Donald J. Trump for President Inc., stressed the the website would be a place where Americans can “discover the truth about President Trump’s action agenda to Make America Great Again.”

He said it will provide visitors “a picture window” that will take them behind the scenes at Trump rallies and other campaign events.

“President Trump believes in speaking directly with the American people. That is the very purpose of this new campaign website – it is an extension of the President’s plan to reinvent the American political system to benefit all Americans,” said Mr. Glassner.
