Donald Trump made an official announcement on Tuesday (November 15) to be the candidate of the Republican Party in the general election to be held in 2024. . News from AFP.
Trump, 76, said, ‘I am announcing my candidacy for the presidency of the United States tonight.’
Trump has already filed paperwork to run. He is the first person to officially announce his candidacy for the next US presidential election.
If he wins the election in 2024, Trump will be the second president in the history of the United States, who will be elected for two different terms.
Trump told his supporters, “The comeback of the United States begins now.” Trump won the 2016 US presidential election as a candidate from the Republican Party. His victory shocked the world.
In a speech Tuesday night, Trump acknowledged that his party suffered some losses in the recent midterm elections. But he did not challenge its results. This is a marked change from Trump’s sharp reaction to his loss in the 2020 presidential election.
However, the former US president did not take responsibility for the Republican candidates not getting the majority even in the mid-term elections. Rather, the voters have not yet realized the full extent and pressure of the pain our country is going through.
He then predicted that the 2024 vote would be ‘very different’.
Trump lost to Biden in the 2020 election. But Trump has accused the election of massive fraud. He has not yet admitted defeat. Now he announced his candidacy for the next presidential election.
