Donald Trump Launches New Campaign For The US Presidency

PALM BEACH, Florida, USA —

Former President Donald Trump said on Tuesday that he will launch a new campaign for the US presidency, making an early start to the 2024 race. The announcement comes just a week after a disappointing result for Republicans in the midterm elections. , and will force his party to decide whether to adopt a candidate whose refusal to accept defeat in 2020 brought American democracy to the brink.

“In order to make America great and glorious again, I am announcing tonight my candidacy for President of the United States,” Trump told an audience of several hundred supporters and press gathered in a sconce-decked ballroom at his Mar-a-Lago club, where he was flanked by more than 30 American flags and banners reading “Make America Great Again!”

“I am running because I believe that the world has not yet been able to see the true glory of what this nation can be,” he stressed.

“Once again we will put America first,” he added.

Trump enters the race at a time of political vulnerability. He had planned to launch his campaign after the midterm elections, which he hoped would be filled with victories for candidates he himself exalted during this year’s primaries. Instead, many of those candidates lost, allowing Democrats to seize control of the Senate and leaving the GOP on track for a slim majority in the House of Representatives.

Far from being the undisputed leader of the party, Trump is now facing criticism from some of his own allies, who say it is time for Republicans to look to the future, with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis one of the contenders. party favorites to the White House.

The former president remains popular among the Republican Party’s supporter base. But other Republicans, like former Vice President Mike Pence, are taking steps toward launching their own campaigns, raising the possibility that Trump will have to navigate a highly competitive Republican primary.

Trump announces his campaign amid a series of escalating criminal investigations, including several that could result in formal charges. Among them is an investigation into dozens of confidentially-sealed documents that were seized by the FBI from Mar-a-Lago, as well as ongoing state and federal investigations into his attempts to reverse the results of the 2020 presidential election.

A new campaign is a remarkable thing for any former president, let alone one who made history by facing two impeachments and whose term ended with his supporters violently storming the federal Capitol in an attempt to prevent the peaceful transition of powers on January 6, 2021.

But according to some close associates, Trump has been eager to return to politics and try to stem the rise of other potential adversaries. His aides have spent the past few months preparing the documents, identifying potential staff members and drawing the contours of a campaign similar to his 2016 operation, in which a small group of aides gathered between rallies on the government’s private plane. businessman broke all the odds and defeated more experienced and better financed rivals by exploiting deep political divisions and using shocking statements to attract media attention.
