Trump's big comeback: how the tycoon intends to reclaim the presidency
After a long hiatus, Donald Trump returns to public space. And again criticizes the current American administration and the "traitors" -Republicans. Although he is denied the ability to communicate with his supporters through social media, more traditional means of communication remain at his disposal. Writes about it "European truth".
This time around, Trump's attention is riveted for several reasons. One is his speech at massive Independence Day rallies in Ohio and Florida. The other is the accusations against Trump himself, as well as against his company, the Trump Organization.
All this makes the 45th President of the United States "gamble on raising rates" - ever more acute attacks against the current administration are almost the only way to avoid punishment.
Trump against "total disaster"
Donald Trump returns to public space in his usual manner: shocking and beautiful.
At the annual fair in the Wellington suburb of Ohio, about 15-20 thousand Americans gathered to listen to Donald Trump's speech. And they got enough drive - the president's speech, as always, was full of sharp accusations against the current administration and bright promises for the future.
Trump began his 94-minute speech by declaring that after just five months of work, the administration of the incumbent US President Joe Biden had failed, or, to quote Trump literally, "was a complete disaster."
He complained about growing crime, a weakened police force, illegal immigrants taking over the southern border of drug cartels, schools turning into "leftist indoctrination camps."
Trump added: "Joe Biden is destroying our nation right before our eyes."
He also reiterated his thesis that Republicans must urgently "recapture" the House and Senate in next year's midterm elections.
Traditionally, in his speech, Donald Trump also recalled that the election results were falsified. “It was the scam of the century, and it was the crime of the century. We will never stop fighting for the real results of these elections. Remember, I am not the one trying to undermine American democracy. I'm trying to save American democracy, ”he said.
The crowd supported this statement and began to shout: “Trump has won! Trump has won! "
However, his own attorney general, state officials and election commissions debunked the allegation of electoral fraud.
Donald Trump in his speech also noted that China is obliged to pay the United States and other countries of the world "at least $ 10 trillion" for damage from the COVID-19 pandemic. He also suggested that all countries refuse to pay their debts to China.
Criticism of the fight against coronavirus in the United States became a separate point of speech. During his speech, he said that during his administration, a vaccine was developed in less than a year, and the actions of the current administration do raise many questions.
Harshly criticized President and Joe Biden's foreign policy during his speech at a rally in Sarasota, Florida.
In particular, Trump noted that the United States is inferior to Russia, China and Iran, and recalled Russia's interference in the US presidential election.
Donald Trump recalled that it was he who suspended the construction of Nord Stream 2, for which, of course, Russia has a negative attitude towards him. According to him, he could free the country from oil dependence on Russia and the Middle East within two weeks.
Hope for 2022
A number of experts assess Donald Trump's return to public space as the beginning of his 2024 presidential campaign. In one of the talk shows on Fox, Donald Trump noted that he already had an action plan for 2024, but did not disclose details.
It is worth noting that the moderate wing of the Republicans is considering the 2024-year-old Governor of Florida, Ron DeSantis, as its candidate for the elections in 42. DeSantis is a longtime Trump ally and spearheaded the Republican fight against the harsh anti-coronavirus campaign.
According to polls of potential candidates, DeSantis was ahead of Donald Trump by 3% - 74% versus 71%.
However, the DeSantis Office said the governor is focused on winning Florida's re-election next year, rather than seeking to occupy the White House.
In such a situation, the task of Tampa is to overcome the resistance in the Republican Party as quickly as possible.
And this requires that the candidates from the Great Old Party for the next midterm elections to be held in 2022 are not “traitors”, but Trump's loyal allies.
The ranks of the Republican Party are gradually being transformed.

In particular, in May, Republicans in the US House of Representatives voted to resign Congressman Liz Cheney as chairman of the Republican Conference. This is the third highest position in the leadership of the Republican Party.
It is worth recalling that Liz Cheney is a clear anti-trumpist, supported Trump's impeachment and stated that the president is a threat to the rule of law and the principles of the Conservative party.
Kevin McCarthy, the leader of the Republican minority in the House of Representatives, said the move is solely about maintaining party unity, and not sorting out relations with Trump's opponents.
4 cases against Trump
Donald Trump's return to public space coincided with the intensification of investigations against him and his associates.
In particular, on July 1, Cyrus Vance, Attorney for the Southern Judicial District of New York, brought criminal charges against the management of the Trump Organization and its CFO Allen Weisselberg. The company and Weiselberg, a longtime business associate of Trump, plead not guilty to any of the charges.
What is Trump accused of?
Charge in New York related to tax evasion and receipt of certain benefits that were not declared.
In particular, we are talking about free rent of apartments and cars provided to Weisselberg and other officials without proper reporting on them in tax returns.
According to the investigation, Weisselberg received indirect compensation in the amount of $ 1,76 million, prosecutors said. In addition, Weisselberg hid his New York residence, evading state, federal and local taxes in the amount of about $ 900.
Allen Weisselberg does not admit the charges against him, his lawyer considers the case to be politically motivated. Trump himself thinks so.
Another case is the civil proceedings of New York Attorney General Laetitia James. She is now checking whether Trump's company has overestimated the value of some properties in order to get a loan, or, conversely, underestimated in order to receive tax breaks.
Investigation in political cases is even more revealing.
The prosecutor of Georgia's largest state has opened criminal proceedings over Trump's attempts to influence the results of the presidential election in November 2020, which was won by Democrat Joe Biden.
This is about Trump's attempts to reverse the state's election results, including a call to Georgia's Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger. According to the New York Times, Fulton County Attorney Fanny Willis sent a letter to government officials, including Raffensperger, asking them to retain documents related to Trump's January call.
But the main thing is that Donald Trump was recognized as a defendant in the trials of the storming of the US Capitol building on January 6. The president did not admit responsibility for the riots in Washington, where he urged his followers to go to the Capitol.
The first lawsuit against Donald Trump and his lawyer Rudy Giuliani was filed by Democratic Congressman Benny Thompson, along with the influential American civil rights organization NAACP.
The lawsuit alleges that Trump and Giuliani violated the Ku Klux Klan statute, statute of 1871, which includes protection from violent conspiracies that interfere with the constitutional responsibilities of Congress.
Later, 10 Democratic congressmen joined this lawsuit. A similar lawsuit was filed by Democratic Congressman Eric Swolwell, who was one of the main impeachments of Trump in the US Senate. Both lawsuits cite civil rights law passed to counter the Ku Klux Klan's intimidation of elected officials.
It is about the accusation of coordinating efforts to undermine the democratic electoral process and blocking the legitimate votes of millions of voters cast by black Americans.
“I joined this complaint as a plaintiff, since the threat to the security of our democracy and for me personally was frankly ignored. Someone must be held accountable for the brutal disruption of democratic processes, ”said House Representative Watson Coleman.
In this case, the results of the second impeachment are in favor of Trump. As the presidential adviser Jason Miller notes in response to the accusations, the Senate has already acquitted Trump on charges of inciting an uprising, proving that “President Trump did not plan, create or orchestrate the January 6 riots. President Trump did not incite or conspire to incite violence in the Capitol. "
However, the likelihood that the Senate decision will give Donald Trump immunity in the January 6 case is decreasing.
Will Donald Trump succeed in realizing his plan?
At one time, the US President abandoned plans to found his own political force - the Party of Patriots. However, this did not weaken Trump's position.
He has enough Republican supporters, many of whom still believe the 2020 election was "stolen."
Will the Republican leadership manage to quench the revolt within the party?
The answer to this question will determine the direction of US domestic policy in the coming years.
