US presidential election calendar 2024: primaries, debates and other adventures of candidates

2024 is guaranteed to be even more turbulent for the United States than the previous one. And many events in America will determine the political situation throughout the world, reports with the BBC.

US President Biden's term ends in November 2024. And according to all the rules of American politics, the current president, anyone, not just Biden, turns into a “lame duck” in the last year of his reign.

The joker here is, of course, Donald Trump, who may not be allowed to participate in the November 5 elections at all.

Let's explore the chronology of political life in 2024 in the United States in detail.

Winter. Ukraine support vote and Republican debate

January 9 2024 years The House of Representatives returned from the Christmas break. Congressmen are expected to unblock aid to Ukraine.

At the very least, House Speaker Johnson calls aid to Ukraine a “priority for the United States.” However, the problem of financing the strengthening of the US southern border with Mexico remains unresolved.

The Biden administration has made moves toward the Republican-controlled House of Representatives.

January 10, 18 and 21, 2024 There will be a debate between the candidates for the Republican nomination for the presidency of the United States.

Poll favorite Donald Trump is likely to miss them, like the four previous rounds of internal party debates.

So US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Gailey, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, New Jersey ex-governor Chris Christie, entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy, who is also called “Donald Trump 2.0”, and perhaps Arkansas ex-governor Asa Hutchinson will try to convince TV viewers that they are suitable for the position of President of the United States.

Trump himself says that he would like to debate, but with Joe Biden.

Spring. Lawsuits against Trump

March promises to be a super hot month in American politics. At the beginning of the first spring month, two events will take place at once - the trial of Donald Trump and Super Tuesday.

4 March 2024 year The trial will begin on the merits of the federal criminal case "United States of America v. Donald J. Trump" about the likely participation of ex-President Trump in attempts to overturn the 2020 presidential election in the United States, including Trump's role in the attack on the Capitol on January 6, 2024.

The grand jury announced indictments against Donald Trump on the following four counts:

  • conspiracy to defraud the United States;
  • conspiracy to obstruct official proceedings;
  • obstruction and attempted obstruction of official proceedings;
  • conspiracy to violate the rights of citizens.

Investigators believe Trump was determined to stay in power after losing the presidential election and then spread lies about alleged voter fraud while knowing it was untrue. And he tried to prevent Congress from approving Joe Biden’s victory, calling on congressmen to delay the procedure and inciting his supporters to attack the Capitol.

Donald Trump does not admit his guilt. His entourage calls the process an attempt to interfere in future presidential elections and a witch hunt.

The greatest drama now is that the expedited trial that the special counsel has insisted on may not happen. The Supreme Court made a corresponding decision. This could complicate the electoral process and make Donald Trump's job easier.

There is no clear consensus on whether Donald Trump's potential guilty plea would automatically bar him from running for the US presidency.

The third section of the 14th Amendment to the American Constitution prohibits anyone from holding public office who has ever participated in an insurrection. This rule in America was introduced after the Civil War to prevent separatists from taking power.

At the same time, there are only three conditions for the possibility of running for president of the United States: the candidate must be born in America, he must be at least 35 years old and he must have lived in the States for at least 14 years. And the Constitution does not mention the criminal record of a US presidential candidate. Moreover, there were already precedents. In 1920, socialist Eugene Debs ran for president straight from prison, where he was serving a sentence for an anti-war speech criticizing America's entry into World War I.

The United States is immersed in a new season of the Trump series, which revolves around his eligibility to run.

At first, the Minnesota Supreme Court refused to bar Trump from participating in the presidential race.

Then the Colorado Supreme Court banned Donald Trump from participating in elections in the state. Thus, the court essentially recognized Trump as a participant in the insurrection on January 6, 2021.

Subsequently, the Michigan Supreme Court called Trump's right to run or not a political issue, which means the competence of the US Congress, not the court.

Maine Secretary of State Shanna Bellows then banned Donald Trump from the state's Republican primary, citing Section Three of the 14th Amendment of the US Constitution. Trump appealed the decision.

Now the fate of Trump, who wants to become president again, must be determined by the US Supreme Court. He is tasked with deciding whether to overturn the Colorado Supreme Court's decision, which would then automatically give Trump the opportunity to get on the ballot in every state.

However, to do this, a majority of judges must be sure that Donald Trump did not take part in the insurrection.

5 March 2024 year The so-called “Super Tuesday” will take place.

On this day, 15 states and territories will hold primaries to elect delegates to the national conventions of the Republican and Democratic parties. They will eventually choose presidential candidates from the parties.

25 March 2024 year The People of the State of New York v. Donald J. Trump will begin.

Trump is accused of making hush money payments to porn actress Stormy Daniels (real name Stephanie Clifford) during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Investigators believe he sought to ensure Clifford's silence about their past sexual relationship. Clifford then arranged for a television interview, the topic of which could be her relationship with Trump.

Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen said he paid the porn actress $130 out of his own pocket. Trump subsequently reimbursed him for expenses classified as legal fees. Therefore, Trump is accused of falsifying business records.

And if he is found guilty on all counts, the maximum penalty could reach 136 years behind bars.

Donald Trump does not admit guilt and accuses the prosecutor of political motivation.

But that is not all.

20 May 2024 city Court hearings begin in the case “United States of America v. Donald J. Trump, Waltin Nauta and Carlos De Oliveira.”

This is a federal criminal case against Donald Trump, his assistant Walt Nauta and the maintenance manager of his Mar-a-Lago villa, Carlos De Oliveira, and concerns Trump's storage of secret documents at his villa.

Trump is accused of improperly handling classified documents after his presidency under the Espionage Act, as well as making false statements and conspiracy to obstruct an investigation.

Trump does not admit guilt.

Summer. NATO summit and formal nomination of candidates.

July 9-11, 2024 A NATO summit will be held in Washington, which will coincide with the organization's 75th anniversary.

NATO Ex-Sec General Anders Fogh Rasmussen at the 2023 summit in Vilnius proposed to consider the so-called hybrid membership in relation to Ukraine, which provides for Ukraine’s partial accession to the Alliance. First of all, according to such a plan, NATO could accept territories controlled by Kyiv. And then, in theory, the Ukrainian lands liberated from Russian occupation in the future could join.

However, President Zelensky at the final annual press conference called such a proposal nonsense and said that Ukraine “is not invited to NATO.”

Therefore, bold opinions about the likely invitation of Ukraine to NATO from President Biden, which were recently heard in the Ukrainian information environment, are unlikely to materialize next year.

July 15-18, 2024 The Republican National Convention will take place in Milwaukee, where Republican candidates will be nominated for president and vice president of the United States. According to tradition, the first such congress and nomination of candidates is held by the party that does not rule the White House.

The Democratic Party will hold its National Convention August 19-22, 2024 in Chicago.

Biden’s main rival is not even called Trump, but his own age – 81 years old.

There are opinions that argue for the need to support an alternative candidate who, in their opinion, may have a great chance of defeating Donald Trump. But the way the situation is unfolding at the beginning of 2024 indicates that Democrats will obviously bet on the candidacy of the incumbent President, Joe Biden.

True, the chair under his vice president, Kamala Harris, is shaky. In this case, options are possible.

Autumn. Debates and election day

16 September 2024 g. The first debate between Republican and Democratic presidential candidates will take place in Texas. Candidates will practice elocution for 90 minutes.

The second and third rounds of debates are scheduled for October 1 and October 9, 2024, respectively.

5 November 2024 g. US presidential elections will take place. It is still unknown exactly who will participate in them. Too many factors can influence the final decision. Although the greatest chances of meeting in a political duel are with old opponents - current US President Joe Biden and his predecessor Donald Trump.

Even if the names of the candidates are different, it is already obvious that the fight will be fierce. And its result will largely predict the conditions under which Ukraine and the world will be able to end a full-scale war with Russia and other conflicts.
