Former President Donald Trump ended months of speculation and launched his bid on November 15, 2022, to retake the White House in 2024, an early attempt to clear the GOP primary field ahead of a potential rematch against Joe Biden. This should bring major fear to Biden, Dems, liberal media and big social media. The US needs a strong leader.
“Ladies and gentlemen, distinguished guests and my fellow citizens, America’s comeback starts right now,” Trump, 76, told hundreds of cheering supporters who gathered in the ornate ballroom of his Mar-a-Lago resort for the official announcement. “In order to make America great and glorious again, I am tonight announcing my candidacy for president of the United States.”
Moments before his remarks, the 45th president filed paperwork with the Federal Election Commission confirming his candidacy. “I will ensure that Joe Biden does not receive four more years,” he added later in his remarks. “Our country could not take that. And I say that not in laughter, I say that in tears. Our country could not take four more years. They can only take so much.” The former president made a theatrical entrance after the sound system blasted the anthem “Do You Hear the People Sing?” from the musical “Les Miserables.”
“Our enemies are speaking of us with scorn and laughter and derision … People are going absolutely wild and crazy. They are not happy. They are very, very angry,” Trump said. “Now we have a president who falls asleep at global conferences, was held in contempt by the British Parliament over Afghanistan … and he is leading us to the brink of nuclear war, a concept unimaginable just two short years ago.” Trump vowed that if he’s elected to a second non-consecutive term, “we will be a great nation again.” “The decline of America is being forced upon us by Biden and the radical-left lunatics running our government right into the ground. This decline is not a fate we must accept,” he said.
