Trump to contest in the 2024 US presidential election

by Subhechcha Ganguly

While the country is still wrapping up the 2022 midterm elections, former US President Donald Trump officially announced his third bid for the White House, kicking off the 2024 presidential election cycle and leaving him a much diminished figure due to the defeat of Republican candidates he supported.

Trump declared his candidacy for president at a gathering on Tuesday at Mar-a-Lago, his resort-turned-residence, with the slogan “To make America great again.”The former president adhered to the script, which was especially remarkable because he had already criticised teleprompters as a tool for less skilled speakers. Additionally, he lacked the enthusiasm he usually exhibits at campaign rallies.

Trump presented a fairly mellowed image of himself.Trump also never once retold his claims, which it appears that voters in the November 8 midterm elections flatly rejected, about losing the 2020 election to President Joe Biden due to fraud.He supported candidates who ran on those lies with the hope of succeeding, but they failed.Trump’s argument for running for reelection was very straightforward: the US was in excellent shape at the end of his administration in 2020, and it has been deteriorating under his successor.

The past two years under Joe Biden have been a time of pain, hardship, anxiety, and despair for millions of Americans, he said, adding: “We were a strong nation and importantly, we were a free nation.”Biden received harsh criticism from Trump for failing to address issues like inflation, gas prices, the influx of migrants at the southern border with Mexico, which is one of his favourite topics, and for focusing excessively on climate change when nuclear weapons posed a more serious and immediate threat to humanity.Trump was attempting to set up a confrontation with the president by attacking Biden.

Both former Secretaries of State Mike Pompeo and Mike Pence are rumoured to be considering a run for office.The midterm elections are still ongoing, and Republicans wanted the party and donors to concentrate on the Georgia Senate contest in December. Trump’s advisors had pushed him to postpone the announcement. However, the former president refused to change his mind, so he entered first.President Biden, who is in Bali for the G20 summit, has stated he plans to run for a second term and will announce his decision after consulting with his family early next year.

But he reportedly looks forward to competing against the man he defeated in 2016. Earlier on Tuesday, Biden tweeted what appeared to be an attack ad against Trump. In a split-screen video, Biden is seen enacting a sizable infrastructure investment, while Trump is seen proposing the same investment but never delivering it.The caption for Trump reads “Talking,” whereas Biden’s reads “Delivering.”Around the time of Trump’s announcement, the president posted another video in which he claimed that “Donald Trump failed America.”The presidential election of 2024 is already well under way.
