Donald Trump filed with The Federal Electoral Commision for 2020 reelection five hours after being sworn in as President

Several MAJOR implications. If officially a candidate, Trump can use candidate status to curry favor with PACs, businesses, other organizations because he's acting as Trump the candidate, not Trump the president. Different rules apply. Even more importantly it completely changes how non profits can handle him. 501c3's cannot "campaign" or risk losing nonprofit status It means they can't speak negatively about him. Imagine @PPact having to convey risk to Planned Parenthood w/ limits on how to address This throws nonprofits' strategy for next few years into chaos. They must figure out how to work against Trump w/o "campaigning." and further muddies the already swampy ethical waters of financial gain, conflicts of interest & business transactions


...and it begins
