Former US President Donald Trump revealed his intention to run for president again in 2024. Earlier in the day, his aides filed paperwork with the US Federal Election Commission to establish the “Donald J. Trump for President 2024” committee.

Trump defended his legacy on trade deals, foreign policy, border control, and his reaction to the COVID outbreak in his speech. He also suggested that China meddled in the 2020 presidential race, which he lost. Trump said that since taking office, Biden had destroyed Trump’s legacy.


He said that if he had been in charge, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine would never have happened. He defended Republicans’ midterm election turnout, which failed to give them control of the Senate. However, he believes that two more years of Biden would persuade voters of the merits of a Trump presidency.

Trump once referred to migrants as “poisoned” and said that crime waves in American cities have created “cesspools of blood.”. He promised to support the death sentence for drug traffickers and term limits for legislators. Also, rehiring of military soldiers who had been discharged for refusing to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

Trump rejects Republican demands for change

The announcement comes after months of rumors that he could run for president again. It also comes as Republicans are closing in on the 218 seats needed for a House majority. The move by the former president to run as a Republican candidate comes despite the poor performance of the candidates he backed in last week’s midterm legislative elections.

Many Republicans blame him for the Republican Party’s bad midterm showing. Some in the Republican Party want a change of guard, with many eyeing Florida Governor Ron DeSantis as the next Republican Party presidential nominee in 2024, especially following his recent stunning midterm victory.

Former Vice President Mike Pence, Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin, Texas Governor Greg Abbott, former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, and former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo are among the possibilities.

Investigations against the Trump

The former president’s bid for re-election comes as he faces a legislative subpoena over his role in the January 6, 2021 attack on the US Capitol by his followers, as well as a criminal investigation by the Justice Department into his possession of official files removed when he left office. Trump’s address made no mention of his followers’ January 6, 2021 attack on the US Capitol.

The Trump Campaign is being probed in Georgia for attempting to sway the 2020 election results. Furthermore, according to a complaint filed against Trump in New York by Attorney General Letitia James, Trump’s eponymous corporation reportedly engaged in years of deceptive bookkeeping by tricking banks about the worth of his assets.

An investigation is in progress for tax evasion against The Trump Organization. He had consistently denied any misconduct and accused the inquiries of being political in nature. Trump was the first president of the United States to face impeachment twice. But Republicans in the Senate acquitted him both times.

President Joe Biden reacted to Trump’s announcement of a second presidential run on Wednesday by saying the Republican “failed” his country while in office. Trump resigned after his term, claiming without evidence that voter fraud gave Joe Biden the election.

If re-elected, Trump will become only the second president in history to serve two non-consecutive terms. Grover Cleveland is the only one, who served in 1884 and 1892. Meanwhile, Mr. Trump submitted papers to run for President on Wednesday.

His unusually early participation in the campaign is being interpreted as an attempt to get a head start on other Republicans vying to be the party’s flagbearer – as well as to avoid potential criminal charges.
