Miami- Former President Donald Trump left signs again this Sunday that he plans to run as a candidate in the 2024 presidential elections for the Republican Party.
During a rally he offered in Miami-Dade County, in South Florida, Trump said he ran twice and “won twice,” alluding to the 2016 and 2020 elections, the latter of which he lost. against the current US president, Joe Biden, although he continues to repeat without proof that there was electoral fraud.
“And now, for our country to be successful, safe and glorious, I will probably have to do it again, but stay tuned,” said the former president, to the happiness of his ardent supporters, who began to call for another Trump presidential term with the chant “Four more years.”RELATED
The former president was the protagonist of a Republican campaign rally together with Florida senator Marco Rubio, who in the mid-term elections next Tuesday is running for re-election and where both addressed the Latino community living in the south in particular. from Florida.
The senator of Cuban origin, who starts with a relative advantage over his Democratic opponent, Florida Congresswoman Val Demings, pointed out that the voters of South Florida “have seen what socialism, communism and Marxism can do and they are not going to lose this country.”
Trump had words of praise for Rubio, who since 2011 has held one of Florida’s two seats in the Senate, and highlighted the joint work they did during his term to toughen US policy towards Cuba as well as to reduce taxes.
Trump did not forget how the senator defended him during the congressional investigation into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 electoral process and the possible involvement of members of his campaign team in that plot.
“Marco Rubio is the candidate of law and order,” said Trump, who asked for the vote for him and for the other Republican candidates in Florida, where some opinion polls show an unavoidable victory for this party on November 8.
“They are going to re-elect Ron DeSantis as governor of his state,” the former president also said, who in this way seemed to put a cold water cloth on the “tense relationship”, as several US media have pointed out, which is suspected between the former president and current Floridian governor, Ron DeSantis, who goes to the polls on Tuesday as the favorite to be re-elected.
The night before, Trump dealt a slight blow to his former godson-in-law by calling him “Ron DeSanctimonious” during a rally in Pennsylvania. “Trump at 71%, Ron DeSanctimonious at 10%,” the former president said, reviewing approval ratings among hypothetical contenders for the party’s 2024 nomination.
DeSantis was not part of today’s rally at the Miami-Dade County Fair and Exposition Center as he was on the other Florida coast carrying out campaign events, as part of his “Don’t tread on Florida” electoral tour that will conclude Monday possibly in Palm Beach counties, where Trump has established his residence, and Miami-Dade.
At the close of his rally, and to a somber tune, the former president called for the vote in the “important” midterm elections, where Republicans hope to gain control of Congress, after noting that the US is a “nation in decline” for fault of the current Administration of President Joe Biden.
The other senator from Florida, Rick Scott, who does not have to participate in the elections on Tuesday, as well as the president of the Republican Party, Senator Joe Gruters, participated in today’s act.
They were joined by legislators such as Mario Díaz-Balart, Carlos Giménez, Vern Buchanan and Matt Gaetz, among other Republican congressmen from Florida who seek to renew their mandates this Tuesday and who are aware of what a “blessing” from Trump means within the electorate. of your party.
Trump won Florida in the 2018 midterm elections and repeated victory in this state in the 2020 presidential elections, although he could not claim victory in Miami-Dade County, a solid Democratic stronghold for the last two decades.
However, judging by the turnout of Republican voters in the period of early voting and by mail, higher than the Democrats, this county could fall before the so-called “red tide”, alluding to the traditional color of the Republican Party, which some predict will come in Tuesday’s midterm elections.
