Trump may soon announce 2024 bid – media – RT World News

The former US president is reportedly considering announcing a re-election bid this month

Former U.S. President Donald Trump plans to announce his 2024 presidential bid early, even before November’s midterm elections, the New York Post reported Saturday, citing sources. Other outlets have suggested it could happen as early as this month.

According to a person close to Trump, speaking to NYP, « there are talks about an early launch »with some plans on the matter being worked on. « There are no details, but people are preparing », the source of the added take. « They are preparing the ground. »

CNN and The New York Times reported that the announcement could come as soon as this month. Trump apparently shocked his aides by saying he could reveal his intention to run for office on social media, without notice, according to the Times report.

The ex-president is expected to confirm his re-election bid from Florida, home of Governor Ron DeSantis, another potential candidate and possible main Republican rival to Trump, The Daily Telegraph reported on Saturday citing sources.

Although many Republicans welcome Trump’s possible re-election, there are concerns that such an announcement could distract from the midterm elections scheduled for November, or even constitute « a direct threat to democracy » The New York Times report suggested on Friday.

US President Joe Biden, Trump’s Democratic rival in the last election, last year confirmed his intention to run in the 2024 presidential race. However, some Democrats have questioned whether he should run for office a second time. . According to a New York Times report last month, party officials are frustrated with the incumbent’s struggle to stick to his platform.

Trump repeatedly dropped hints about his plans for 2024. In late January, speaking to a « Rally to Save America » in Texas, he indicated that « We’re going to take back this beautiful, beautiful house that happens to be white… We’re going to take back the White House. »

Trump’s prospects for a second run for president are bolstered by his early advantage over Biden in a hypothetical game in 2024, according to a recent Emerson College poll. The survey, conducted in late June, put support for the 45th president at 44%, with Biden at 39%. In the next election, Trump will be 78 and Biden will be almost 82.
