United States: Trump announces his candidacy for the 2024 presidential election

Donald Trump announced his candidacy for the 2024 presidential election on Tuesday, hoping to pull the rug out from under his potential Republican rivals.

The former US president announced his candidacy during a speech from his residence in Mar-a-Lago, Florida, a week after the midterm elections, in which Republicans won fewer seats in Congress than hoped. Donald Trump spoke for just over an hour in front of hundreds of his supporters gathered in a ballroom in which dozens of American flags were displayed. “In order to make America great again, I announce tonight my candidacy for the presidency of the United States”said Donald Trump.

The former head of state criticized Joe Biden’s presidency, while emphasizing what he described as the successes of his tenure. “Two years ago we were a great nation, and soon we will be a great nation again”he said.

“Not really”

When asked if he had an opinion on Donald Trump’s announcement, the US president said: “Not really.” Joe Biden posted a video criticizing Donald Trump’s record on Twitter.

Donald Trump’s candidacy, announced much earlier than usual, shows his desire to discourage his potential rivals from entering the race for the White House, in particular the governor of Florida Ron DeSantis, or his former vice-president Mike Pence. Donald Trump was actively involved in the midterm elections, supporting some candidates who supported the presidential election theory “stolen”. Many of them, however, have been beaten at the polls, especially for crucial positions as senators. The Republicans, who saw the majority in the Senate escape them, however, seem well on their way to taking control of the House of Representatives.
