Will former President Donald Trump be re-elected to the White House?
After Trump filed for re-election recently and announced his candidacy to run in 2024 some conservative hopefuls believe that could be a real possibility.
Trump, who was elected president from 2017 to 2021, told reporters and a crowd of conservative supporters on Tuesday, November 15 during his announcement at his waterfront estate in Florida, Mar-a-Lago, (his campaign headquarters) that his platform will be about “issues, vision, and successes.”
CNN reported that Trump is looking to become the only second commander-in-chief ever elected for two nonconsecutive terms.
“In order to make America great and glorious again, I am tonight announcing my candidacy for president of the United States,” Trump told the crowd.
During his roughly hour-long speech, Trump talked about his wins, Democrat defeats, a struggling economy under Biden’s watch, and describing how his second potential go-round in office would patch up the mistakes Biden is making.
In a Washington Post article, President Biden and his staff are working on a strategy to respond to Trump’s ever-increasing insults on the Democrats and, effectively, Biden to combat what they’re anticipating will be a “constant stream of attacks.”
“This will not be my campaign, this will be our campaign all together,” Trump said in his speech. “Anyone who truly seeks to take on this rigged and corrupt system will be faced with a storm of fire that only a few could understand.”
During his speech he reminded the crowd that he “didn’t need this.”
“I had a nice easy life,” he said before running for president adding that it’s about his love for the country and it’s time to “save our country.”
“Every policy must be geared toward that which supports the American worker, the American family, and businesses both large and small) and allows our country to compete with other nations on a very level playing field,” Trump said.
In a Yahoo! News report Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) said afterward that Trump needs to step down for good.
“If we want to start winning, we need someone else on the mound. And we’ve got a very strong bench that can come out,” Romney said comparing Trump’s run to a lackluster sports figure. “I know, there’s some fans that love him. Just like, you know, an aging pitcher, there are always fans that want to keep them there forever. But if you keep losing games, try to put some new players on the field.”
