Donald Trump Goes Against Advisors to Announce Presidency Bid for 2024
Click to Listen Now
Donald Trump, 76, made explicitly clear his desire to seek a second term as President of the United States of America in 2024.
“Two years ago we were a great nation and soon we will be a great nation again,” he said in a packed room of supporters at Mar-a-lago.
This comes as no surprise since he has been hinting at a comeback for some time.
It also comes after many candidates he endorsed in the 2022 Mid-term Primary Election, lost their races. Some Republicans have openly blamed him for the losses.
The big picture
Trump has been subpoenaed for ‘inciting’ the Jan 6, 2021 assault on Capitol Hill and is facing trouble for the mishandling of government documents. These investigations he has called politically motivated and has denied wrongdoing.
Why it matters
Trump’s announcement is an early bid and is believed to be done to distract and discourage contenders such as Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and Former Vice President, Mike Pence, who recently wrote a book about his time serving with Trump.
