Trump Announces 2024 Presidential Candidacy

Donald Trump, the man who chaired the presidential election. United States between 2016 and 2020, he refused. He accepted his defeat against Joe Biden and harangued the president. With his unfounded accusations of electoral fraud against the masses that assaulted the Capitol, he announced this Tuesday his candidacy to try to reach the White House again in 2024.

“To make America great and glorious again, I am announcing tonight my candidacy for President of the United States,”, he said. “The return of America begins right now”.

The announcement of this third assault on the White House was expected and Trump, who overcame the attack, was expected. two ‘impeachments’, he had anxiety about doing it for months, convinced that it can protect him from the various investigations that are hanging over him and potential charges. Finally, he has decided to do it at a time that is also difficult for him.

“America's return begins right now,” says the Republican in the Mar-a-Lago announcement

Following the midterm elections of last week numerous voices within the Republican Party, in conservative circles and among big donors question and criticizeHe expressed his influence in the formation, asking him to make way for other figures such as the re-elected governor of Florida Ron DeSantis. And they do so after the results for the conservatives were It was worse than expected, something that is largely attributed to the influence of Trump and the presence of extremist candidates backed by him who have been rejected at the polls in key races and in an electoral appointment. where the future of democracy was at stake.

Trump has not cared about these criticisms, nor recommendations from his advisers that he wait at least until the second round that will decide the election is held on December 6. He will win a Senate seat from Georgia that may facilitate the actions of the Democrats, who already have a guaranteed majority in the House. And the announcement of him came at 9:22 p.m. in an act in a room at Mar-a-Lago, his private club in Florida. Shortly before starting the speech, I had alreadyHe presented the documentation for that candidacy before the Federal Electoral Commission.

Exaggerations and contrasts

In the intervention In just over an hour, Trump, 76, combined reading the teleprompter (to make what he said would be a speech “elegant”) with his classic improvisations. It has also peppered the discourse with exaggerations, lies and misinformation. He has also used racism to re-describe Covid-19 as “the China virus” and mockery, > the way you have chosen to talk about climate change and President Biden.

He has also contrasted the idyllic portrait of the country under his mandate, especially with regard to the economy and the border but also in foreign policy, with what he has said is a &ldquo ;nation in decline” under the presidency of the Democrat, making an apocalyptic portrait of immigration and crime.

Meanwhile, from the personal account of President Bide n Twitter (one of the social networks from which Trump was expelled but to which he could return) posted a video denouncing the “failed presidency” of Trump and putting special echo in the assault on the Capitol and in Trump's promise to pardon the assailants.

In Trump's doomsday speech on the state of the country under Biden and Democratic state and local governments there were echoes of the promise to end the “American carnage” carried out by Trump. when he took office in 2016, taking over from Barack Obama. And it was not the only connection that his speech had with his first campaign, nor is it casual. Because in this third fight for the White House, Trump wants to recover the populist image of the 'outsider' of politics that fight against the 'establishment', combining it at the same time with that of the strong leader. In addition, this Tuesday he has portrayed himself as “victim” of alleged political persecution.

No news of 'the big lie'

Trump, whose speech has not been offered in its entirety by CNN or MSNBC but neither by FoxNews, which in the final part has given way to commentators, has addressed the culture warsHe will see how good returns they are giving to Republicans like DeSantis or Glenn Youngkin, two of their potential rivals. What has not directly stirred up the specter of the "big lie" about the alleged and discredited fraud in the presidential elections that lost 20 years. but yes has made references to the electoral system. And he has “promised to restore honesty and trust in the elections and to eliminate cheating” if he returns to the Oval Office. He has explained, for example, that he will require that all voters use identification, that they can only vote on the same day of the elections, that there will only be paper votes and that the The scrutiny will be completed on election day.

Trump has also promised to seek “unity” but in the same speech he has launched harsh and bloody attacks, vowing to “defeat the radical left Democrats trying to destroy the country from within.”

The campaign

Hours before the announcement ‘The Washington Post’ revealed Here are some details of the campaign operation that has already begun to take shape around the former president.This one aims to have less staff and budget than 2020 and will be based in Florida, not in New York and Virginia as above.

Trump is going to work without a manager for the moment and, unlike in 2020, when he complained that there were too many people he didn't know, this time he is going to surround himself with people with whom he is related and trust for a long time.

One of the key people on that team will be someone else. Susie Wiles, a Florida-based political consultant who helped him find out.
