What will it take for Donald Trump to win the nomination for the 2024 Presidential election? Politico has more on the recent announcement:
Donald Trump, who lost the 2020 election and left the White House under the cloud of impeachment for his role in the Jan. 6 riots on Capitol Hill, is running for president again.
The 45th president announced his bid for a second term during a primetime event at his Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, Florida. He filed a statement of candidacy as well.
“In order to make America great and glorious again I am tonight announcing my candidacy for president of the United States,” he declared, to thunderous applause in the room.
It is an extraordinary — although long anticipated — move for Trump, one certain to reshape his party’s trajectory, raise complicated legal questions and alter the presidency for the man who defeated him, Joe Biden. He explicitly discussed his campaign as an effort to restore the presidency he had.
“There has never been anything like it, this great movement of ours… And perhaps there will never be anything like it again,” Trump declared. “America’s comeback starts right now.”
