Donald Trump | Trump Set To Launch 2024 Presidential Bid | Presidential Election | English News
Former President Donald Trump is expected to announce Tuesday night that he’s running for president a third time.
He has been hinting in recent weeks and months that he would. “I will very, very probably do it again,” Trump told rally goers in Iowa earlier this month.
He plans to announce his candidacy at a 9 p.m. ET event at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida, while Republicans are still reeling from voters’ rejection of several of their candidates for key races — many of whom had been endorsed and even handpicked by Trump.
Some Republicans blamed Trump for boosting a slate of extremist candidates who were ultimately rejected by independents and did little to motivate base voters. “The party needs to get past Donald Trump,” retiring Pennsylvania GOP Senator Pat Toomey said after the elections. Democratic Lieutenant Governor John Fetterman defeated Republican Mehmet Oz in the race for Toomey’s seat.Former Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker, a Republican, also suggested Trump’s hold on the GOP ultimately harmed their chances of a “red wave.””There’s significant influence from the former president and I think that influence probably hurt the party and hurt the party’s chances on Election Day,” Baker told CNN.Trump is also facing criticism from his former vice president, Mike Pence, after the Jan. 6, 2021, assault on the U.S. Capitol led to a rift between the two.
