Donald Trump telegraphed his candidacy for the upcoming presidential elections at a rally in support of Republican candidates in Iowa on Thursday.

Four days before the midterm elections, Donald Trump is already planning for the 2024 presidential election. “I will very very very likely run again. Get ready,” the former Republican president told a crowd of supporters in Iowa Thursday night.

The 45th President of the United States is banking on a large defeat for the Democrats in the ballot next Tuesday.

We're going to take back Congress, we're going to take back the Senate, he added. And in 2024, we will take back our magnificent White House.

The billionaire, who never admitted defeat in 2020 and who has been flirting for months with the ;idea to seek re-election, continues to exert its grip on the Republican Party.

The one who dubbed a large number of candidates for these elections is increasing meetings to support them and will probably take credit for their success if they deprive Democratic President Joe Biden of his majority in Congress.

Polls predict a large Republican victory in the House of Representatives, which must be completely renewed, and recently lean towards a narrow Republican majority in the Senate, where a third of the seats are at stake.

If their predictions hold true, Donald Trump seems determined to take advantage of this momentum to formalize his candidacy as quickly as possible and thus pull the rug out from under the feet of potential rivals like Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.

We can bet on a quick announcement, admitted Thursday Kellyanne Conway, his former adviser to the White House and close ally. You should keep your phones on you, sorry if you had other plans for the post-election period, she joked to a panel of reporters.

Quoting anonymous sources, the news site Axios bet Friday on the date of November 14 for such an announcement, which could also weigh on the various legal files concerning Donald Trump.

The ex-president is being investigated for his role in the Capitol storming, the management of White House archives and is being prosecuted by the justice of the #x27;New York State for its financial affairs.

In this state, in the hands of Democrats for more than 20 years, the tide could turn on November 8.

In the face of clouds gathering over Governor Kathy Hochul's campaign, the party has sent former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Vice President Kamala Harris to her side.

Other Democratic strongholds, such as Oregon and Colorado, also seem weakened by the discontent linked to runaway inflation, which Republicans blame on Joe Biden.

To counter this message, the president embarked on a tour of the country, emphasizing his efforts to protect the working classes and jobs.

After a stop in New Mexico devoted to erasing student debt, Joe Biden will be in California on Friday to tout his massive plan to support semiconductor production in the United States, then in the evening in Chicago. .

Joe Biden tried to mobilize the Democrats for the midterm elections, during a visit to California.

In the morning, he praised the latest labor market figures — an unemployment rate of 3.7% and 261,000 jobs created in October. While Republican leaders seem poised to cheer a recession, the US economy continues to grow and create jobs, he commented in a statement.

Admitting that inflation remained his main challenge, he vowed to tackle it.

“But as long as I'm president, I won't accept people saying that the problem is that too many x27;Americans find good jobs.

—Joe Biden, President of the United States

Joe Biden, whom Republicans also accuse of allowing the southern border to become a sieve and of x27;having let crime take to the streets, tries for his part to mobilize independent voters in defense of the right to abortion and democracy.

He plays a lot in this election: if he loses control of Congress, the end of his presidency will be paralyzed and the rest, complicated.

Joe Biden says so far he has the intends to run again, but the prospect does not necessarily appeal to all Democrats, due to his age – soon to be 80 – and his unpopularity. A heavy defeat would make this scenario falter even more.
