Trump on Thursday urged his supporters to stay positive ahead of a 2020 presidential election.
“It’s just a long, long way to go,” Trump said of his chances for winning the 2020 election.
The president also repeated his assertion that his Republican Party should continue to unite behind him.
“I’m not going to go back to the same old political, political games,” Trump told a group of supporters.
“This is not going back to old politics.
This is going to be a great time to be president of the United States.”
Trump told supporters at a rally in Iowa on Thursday that he is “a better negotiator than the Democrats.”
“I’ve been very good at winning deals, I’ve been much better at negotiating with the Republicans,” Trump added.
“We’re going to win this election.”
In addition to his 2020 bid, Trump also announced he was endorsing Republican businessman Mitt Romney for president.
