Trump again goes to the presidency: he officially began the election campaign with a very tough program
Donald Trump announced on the evening of November 15 that he is running for president in 2024, laying out an aggressively conservative agenda that includes the execution of people convicted of selling drugs. CNBC.
This campaign will be Trump's third for the presidency, and his first attempt to win votes since his refusal to accept defeat in the 2020 election and his desperate attempts to hold on to power led to the attack on the US Capitol on January 6, 2021.

“We are a nation in decline. We are a loser nation for millions of Americans,” Trump said in a speech at a private club in Florida, criticizing the record of President Joe Biden in his first two years in office. "I'll make sure Joe Biden doesn't get another four years."
Earlier on November 15, Trump filed paperwork with the Federal Election Commission in which he declared himself a presidential candidate and established a new selection committee.
“This campaign will be about challenges and success and we won’t stop, we won’t quit until we reach our highest goals and make our country better than ever before,” Trump said.
Trump made little mention of the 2020 presidential race and made no mention of his two separate impeachment trials: the first over the use of U.S. foreign aid in an attempt to force Ukraine to investigate the Biden family, and the second over his role in the January 6 attack. to the Capitol.
Instead of dwelling on his time in office, Trump's speech echoed his 2016 campaign speeches in many ways, painting a dystopian picture of America as a failed nation devastated by violent crime in "a time of pain, deprivation, unrest and despair."
Trump said the "greatest threat to our civilization" is what he called the weapons of the Justice Department and the FBI, which is currently investigating his handling of classified documents, his role in the massive effort to reverse the 2020 presidential election results, and his obstructions. action against Congress, which confirmed Biden's victory.
He called for "an overhaul from top to bottom and a cleansing of the festering rot and corruption of Washington, D.C."
Trump also said he would demand a sweeping new list of electoral restrictions, including requiring only paper ballots, allowing voters to vote for one day only, requiring photo ID to vote, and "all votes are counted on election night."
“I will do the job,” he said. “This is a very personal job for me. I take it very much to heart."
However, voting in America is controlled by the states, not the federal government. Even if Trump were president and had the support of the Republican Congress, he could not change the way elections are held in individual states.
During the 2022 election cycle, Trump promoted a group of candidates in the 2020 election who were running for office in their respective states to oversee the election. Races were held in Michigan, Arizona, Minnesota, and Nevada, and all of Trump's candidates lost.
Launching his campaign now, just a week after the Republicans lost a key midterm election, Trump also rejected advice from current and former advisers who warned him against declaring himself a presidential candidate shortly after his party's defeat.
The FEC has nominated Donald J. Trump for the 2024 President and officially launched the 2024 Republican presidential primaries, a contest whose dynamics have changed dramatically over the past week.
Until last Tuesday, Trump, 76, was the undisputed leader in his party's nomination contest, with polls showing the former president's support among Republican voters averaging more than 20 percentage points compared to his nearest rival, Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.
But that was before DeSantis won re-election by an extraordinary 19-point margin, electrifying Republicans across the country and providing the party with a bright spot on an overcast day when Democrats won most of the major Senate and gubernatorial races.
Some early post-election YouGov polls show DeSantis leading Trump.
The Florida governor has reportedly met with donors and launched his own presidential campaign to challenge Trump for the GOP nomination.
“I just started fighting,” DeSantis promised supporters in his re-election victory speech.
Trump's growing legal troubles will also be a factor in any upcoming primary and general election battles. His family's real estate and hotel empire is facing a wide-ranging New York state fraud lawsuit that could permanently undermine his operations and reduce his personal fortune.
Trump is also facing an investigation in Georgia into his efforts to overturn the state's 2020 election results.
Trump's new status as a candidate is not expected to affect either the fraud suit or the Georgia case.
But now that Trump is officially Biden's political opponent in the 2024 election, Attorney General Merrick Garland will need to decide whether to appoint a special counsel to take over day-to-day management of federal investigations into Trump.
The White House is keen to avoid any suggestion that the investigation and possible prosecution of the president's archrival is politically motivated or that it is in any way intended to harm Trump's prospects in the 2024 election.
Whoever wins the Republican primary is likely to face President Joe Biden. The President has yet to officially begin his re-election campaign, but campaign plans have reportedly hardened in recent weeks.
On Tuesday, Trump accused Biden of mismanaging the economy. “In two years, the Biden administration has destroyed the US economy. Destroyed,” he said.
The prospect of a lengthy primary between Trump and DeSantis would be great news for Democrats, in part because Democratic campaign strategists see DeSantis as a formidable challenger.
Biden likes this idea too. When asked by a reporter on November 9 about Trump and DeSantis, the president said, "It will be fun to watch them fight each other."
Despite his setbacks, Trump remains the undisputed leader of the Republican Party, and his loyal MAGA conservative base is also a Republican primary voter, making him a formidable contender from the get-go.
