Donald Trump launches new campaign for US presidency

Former US President Donald Trump is set to launch his third campaign for the White House on Tuesday, seeking to put behind dismal results for the Republican Party in the midterm elections a week ago and defy history, signs show. Amidst that his control over the party is waning.

Trump wanted to use the expected Republican victory in the polls as a springboard to launch himself into the presidential nomination, while seeking early support to keep his rivals at arm’s length. Instead, he is being blamed for endorsing a series of losing candidates after disappointing results in which Democrats retained control of the Senate and a still-undecided majority in the House.

“Hopefully, tomorrow is going to be one of the most important days in the history of our country!” Trump wrote on his social network on Monday.

An announcement is expected at 9 p.m. from Trump’s club in Palm Beach.

A new campaign would be an extraordinary thing for any former president, especially one who made history as the first person to be twice impeached and whose term ended with a throng of his supporters jostling for power. The Congress headquarters were attacked to try to stop the peaceful transition. 6, 2021. Only one president in US history has been elected to two non-consecutive terms: Grover Cleveland in 1884 and 1892.

Trump also faces a growing series of criminal investigations, including a State Department probe into the discovery of hundreds of classified documents in boxes and drawers at his club at Mar-a-Lago.

Aides and allies asked Trump to wait until after the midterm elections — and then until after Dec. 6 of a senatorial race in Georgia — to announce his plans. But the former president, eager for the spotlight, is trying to fend off a long list of potential rivals, including Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who easily won re-election last week, is now being seen as a possible 2024 presidential candidate.
