Trump is already working on the campaign for the presidential election
Donald Trump is already behaving like a presidential candidate and has begun discussing with his advisers the candidacies of his potential campaign aides, although he has not yet officially announced his candidacy for the 2024 election. This was written by the “Washington Post” newspaper, citing sources close to politics. “Trump has begun discussing recruiting for his campaign and is asking people to help out in various states,” the publication said. The former president also monitors which “donors” meet with other potential candidates in the elections.
Ahead of the official announcement, which could come as soon as the midterm elections for the US Congress on November 8, Trump hosted state representatives and members of the Republican National Committee at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida. It is at Mar-a-Lago that Trump plans to announce his presidential bid, according to the newspaper’s sources. But some of his advisers insist that it must be done in one of the swing states.
Trump’s intention to start the campaign shortly after the midterm elections, his advisers attribute to the fact that it will allow him to attract Republican support from other candidates of the same party. He believes prominent GOP figures will enter the race, including Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, former Vice President Mike Pence, and former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. Some policy advisers also note that it would be better for Trump to announce the nomination for the election as soon as possible before the Justice Department decides to charge him in one of the investigations, including the storming of the Capitol on January 6, 2021 d. They believe that in this way, the prosecution of Trump can become a political issue that is profitable for him.
On Wednesday, the Associated Press reported that Trump aides were quietly preparing a campaign to nominate him in the election. During a speech at a rally in Texas on October 22, Trump hinted at his desire to run in the next presidential election. At the time, he said he was willing to do so so the US could once again become a “successful, safe, and great” country.
In early September, Trump’s former aide and son-in-law Jared Kushner told Sky News that the 76-year-old Trump could re-enter the race for the presidency. Kushner admitted that the former American leader had already spoken to him about the upcoming elections, and although he did not give a definite answer to the question of his participation in the upcoming presidential race, he noted that “it is difficult to rule out something with Trump because he is a very flexible thinker”.
Earlier, a poll by the research organization YouGov showed that more than half of Americans do not want the current US President Joe Biden, and the former head of state Donald Trump to run for a new term in 2024.
