Trump launches 2024 U.S. presidential run getting jump on rivals : Donald Trump launched a bid to win the presidency again in 2024 on Tuesday in an effort to fend off potential Republican challengers.
Since losing the 2020 election, Trump has mounted relentless attacks on the integrity of the American electoral process.
A week after the midterm elections, in which Republicans did not succeed in winning as many seats in Congress as they had wanted, Trump made his statement at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, seeking a potential rematch with Democratic President Joe Biden.
Trump addressed hundreds of supporters in a ballroom, “In order to make America great again, I am tonight launching my campaign for president of the United States.”
Trumo avoided the slurs that have characterised prior public appearances in favour of an assessment of Biden’s administration and what he said were the policy accomplishments of his current term in office.
We were a great nation two years ago, and we’ll be one soon, he remarked.
Trump outlined well-known dark themes from his playbook, accusing immigrants of poisoning the country and describing American cities as “cesspools of blood” plagued by crime.
He declared that he would advocate for the execution of drug traffickers and the rehiring of military personnel who had been discharged for refusing to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.
When asked if he had a reaction to Trump’s statement while travelling to Indonesia, Biden replied, “Not particularly.” He published a video condemning Trump’s performance in office on Twitter.
LITTLE ROAD The first state-level elections are more than a year away, so there is a long path ahead before the Republican nominee is formally chosen in the summer of 2024.
