TUCSON, Ariz. -- President Donald Trump's 2020 Presidential campaign made a stop in Tucson Thursday.

President Trump's daughter-in-law Lara Trump and 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale were at Hotel Tucson City Center for the event at 11 a.m..

Lara Trump who has emerged as a fierce campaigner for her father in law.

Lara Trump and Parscals worked to fire up the crowd and paint a picture of how they plan to re-elect Donald Trump.

Lara Trump told the audience she helped the Trump campaign carry her home state of North Carolina in 2016. Now she and campaign manager Brad Parscale are working to win in 2020.

Lara Trump says, "He's delivered on so many promises that he made in 2016 save for a few that Congress really could help out and vote on but they're too busy doing other nonsense like trying to impeach this President that they can't focus on getting anything done for the people of this country. But that's how you know that they're terrified."

Lara Trump says she sees it as a compliment and a sign they're getting to the opposition when protestors appear, as three of them did when campaign manager Brad Parscale was on stage earlier.

They were escorted out without incident.

Brad Parscale said Donald Trump's 2016 campaign succeeded even though the organization was put together as the campaign went on.

He says 2020 campaign has been organizing since the day the last campaign ended.

Parscale was a specialist in the world of social media before he became the Trump campaign's overall campaign manager. He says the campaign is developing phone apps to help people who want to volunteer for the Trump campaign improve their training and co-ordination to make the campaign more effective.

Parscale says the Trump campaign has the largest list of prospective donors in history and it's still growing.

"We also looked at 2016 and said we have one of the largest volunteer armies the Republican Party has ever seen with about 600 thousand, with about half or three-quarters of those trained. We are going to build two million trained volunteers for 2020."

Jesse Baca says he'll become one of those volunteers.

"I honestly feel that he was God-sent to run this country because this country has been going through a different direction and I think he's really saved this country."
