Former US President Donald Trump announced at a press briefing at his Mar-a-Lago residence in Florida that he will run for reelection on behalf of the Republicans in the 2024 presidential election. “It was only the beginning of our fight to rescue the American Dream. What Biden did was not good. In order to make America great and glorious again, I am tonight announcing my candidacy for president of the United States,” Trump said during his speech.
Trump’s unusually early entry into the race is seen in Washington as an attempt to get ahead of other Republicans aspiring to be the party’s nominee and to dodge possible convictions in the investigations he faces.
