Having issues while installing packages onto R studio

I tried downloading ggplot2 on RStudio, but following problem occured.

> install.packages("ggplot2")
WARNING: Rtools is required to build R packages but is not currently installed. Please download and install the appropriate version of Rtools before proceeding:

And it continues to download files endlessly
I am using R version 3.6.1
RStudio version 1.2.1335

The first thing you have to solve is installing Rtools, this is a separate software not an R package, you can download it from here

Also, have in mind that you are missing a lot of dependencies, this is going to take a while, so be patient.

Thanks a lot. It is installed.
