Trump launches 2024 presidential bid amid midterm elections fallout

Donald Trump

Former President Donald Trump announced Tuesday night that he was running for president in 2024.

Trump is speaking Tuesday evening at his Mar-A-Lago resort, after teasing a “special announcement” last week.

“We are a nation in decline. We are a failing nation for millions of Americans,” Trump said in a speech at his Florida private club, speaking about President Joe Biden’s first two years running the nation. “I will ensure Joe Biden does not receive four more years.”

He also filed papers with the Federal Election Commission Tuesday night in which he declared himself a candidate for the presidency and established a new campaign committee.

“This campaign will be about issues, vision and success, and we will not stop, we will not quit, until we’ve achieved the highest goals and made our country greater than it has ever been before,” Trump said.

This will be Trump’s third run for the White House, following his 2020 loss to President Joe Biden and his 2016 victory over Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, after emerging the winner of a long, arduous Republican primary campaign that year.

Trump is the first major Republican candidate to launch a presidential campaign, though several other top contenders, including his longtime ally Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R), are said to be considering runs.
