Trump is already in pretty decent shape with Latino voters, despite the efforts of Democrats and their media allies in painting him in a negative light.
Even so, the campaign is taking no chances for 2020. Trump is going to launch a new outreach to Latino voters, starting in Miami.
Trump, wooing Hispanic voters, starts in Miami
Donald Trump will make Miami the jumping off point for his 2020 outreach to Hispanic voters, a prized portion of the electorate in a prized state, Florida, which is key to his reelection effort.
Vice President Mike Pence will roll out “Latinos for Trump” in Miami on Tuesday, a day before Democrats land in the city for their first debates and a week after the president kicked off his 2020 reelection campaign in Orlando. The activity has underscored what’s already apparent: Florida and its 2.2 million Hispanics voters are key to Trump’s bid to remain in the White House…
The Latino effort will be co-chaired by Florida Lt. Gov. Jeanette Núñez, a Cuban American and former member of the Florida House, said a person familiar with the decision who confirmed the Tuesday event but was not authorized to speak to the press. The event was first reported by the Wall Street Journal.
Mike Pence is going to play a key role in this effort.

Pence to help launch ‘Latinos for Trump’ in Miami
Vice President Mike Pence will attend a kickoff event next Tuesday in Miami for “Latinos for Trump,” a campaign effort to engage Latino voters ahead of the 2020 election.
The event will take place at a Miami hotel one day before the first of two Democratic debates are held in the same city. Florida will serve as a crucial swing state in the 2020 presidential race, but the Trump campaign said “Latinos for Trump” will be a nationwide project.
“The strong Latino support for President Trump and his policies will be instrumental in re-electing the president for a second term,” Hannah Castillo, director of coalitions for the Trump campaign, said in a statement.
Collins echoed some of Trump’s common arguments of why minority groups should support his reelection, pointing to low unemployment rates among Hispanics and the president’s support for Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaidó over embattled President Nicolás Maduro.
Democrats may be making the same mistake they did in 2016.
Underestimating support for Trump.
