Donald Trump Files Candidacy For 2024 US Presidential Elections; Announces Bid In Speech

Must Read

Former United States President Donald Trump officially announced his entry in the 2024 US presidential race on Tuesday. His announcement came as many Republicans were getting more apprehensive about their longtime leader. 

To Trump’s announcement, President Joe Biden said that the former has “failed” the US while he was serving as the president. He tweeted, “Donald Trump failed America”. He tweeted from Bali where the US leader is attending the G20 summit. 

He announced his candidature at an event but even before that his campaign had filed federal paperwork to formally declare the same. With the announcement, Trump became the first main contender to declare his candidature officially. 

In his Mar-a-Lago residence in Florida, he declared, “America’s comeback starts right now. I am tonight announcing my candidacy for president of the United States. We are a nation in decline. We are a failing nation for millions of Americans. I will ensure Joe Biden does not receive four more years. Our country could not take that. 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.” 

The paperwork that formally declared his candidature with the Federal Election Commission was done only 23 minutes before his announcement, designating his campaign committee for fundraising.

However, for Republicans, the timing could not be worse. Voters rejected election deniers and those with strong attitudes on social issues like abortion rights and education, which hurt Trump-backed candidates in crucial races during last week’s midterm elections.

Republicans were within one seat of taking power on Monday night, nearly a week after the conclusion of voting across the nation, but it cost them their chance to retake the US Senate and left them far short of the sizeable majority they had hoped to win in the House.
