It’s Official: Donald Trump Announced He’s Running for President in 2024

Leer en Español

Despite the many adversities in recent months: Lawsuits, judicial setbacks, subpoenas, multiple proceedings and congressional hearings due to the events of January 6, 2021, the entire mass media apparatus constantly attacking his image, and last but not least, bad results in the midterm elections, former President Donald Trump made his long-awaited “big announcement” last night and declared that he will run again for the White House.

The announcement occurred at his residence in Mar-a-Lago and he was seen much less grandiose than normal, trying to be slow and restrained, although of course, with his usual style.

“America’s comeback starts right now,” Trump said to a room full of supporters. “Unlike other presidents, I kept my promises.”

“The world was at peace, America was prospering, and our country was on track for an amazing future— because I made big promises to the American People and, unlike other Presidents, I kept my promises,” he said.

“Under our leadership, we were a great and glorious nation, something you haven’t heard for quite a long period of time. We were a strong nation, and importantly we were a free nation. Now, we are a nation in decline. We are a failing nation.”

“I am tonight again announcing my candidacy for President of the United States.”

It is difficult to know what will happen during the next two years within the Republican party. Many analysts and the media affirm that Trump lost his legitimacy as the leader or “head” of the party as a result of the notoriously bad results in the Midterms. Others, however, indicate that although the blow was big, Trump is still holding the helm of the Grand Old Party.

Many conservative commentators have expressed the need to dismiss Trump as a presidential option for the Republican party. It is not a small thing to say that public figures with huge influence such as Mike Cernovich, Ben Shapiro and Matt Walsh, among many others, have clearly stated that Trump should not be nominated and the baton should pass to Ron DeSantis.

On my part, I agree, however we must remember that politics and electoral forces move with flexibility, especially at this particular moment for the United States.

The best that those of us who constantly analyze American politics can do now, is to watch and wait. Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s holidays will put a “truce” in the political context and only until the new Congress and Senate take possession, the fight for power in the most powerful country in the West will return.

The time will come to measure the possibilities of one or the other, the reality today is that Donald Trump is already campaigning and that, regardless of the final result, is always good entertainment.
