Despite the Republican Party’s disappointing performance in the midterm elections, the former president retries his climb to the White House in 2024
Donald Trump is ready to run again. The announcement of his 2024 presidential run is expected by 9 p.m. New York time, 3 a.m. in Italy.
The timing could not be worse for Republicans. Trump-backed candidates failed in key races in last week’s midterm elections, as voters rejected deniers and others with extreme positions on social issues such as abortion rights and education.
The Dems also cash in on a new success in the governor’s race, with their candidate Katie Hobbs elected in Arizona in a direct challenge to Trumpian Kari Lake. Another thud for the Tycoon, infuriated with his staff but nonetheless determined to try again to ascend to the White House in the 2024 presidential election.
A growing number of Republicans, moreover, are skeptical about the former president’s reelection bid because of the Republican Party’s disappointing performance in the midterm elections.
After fanning the flames for weeks over the possibility of entering the 2024 presidential race, Trump, 76, is nonetheless set to make a “very important announcement” on Tuesday at 9 p.m. New York time, which would make him the first contender from either party to officially declare himself.
