Trump to Announce 2024 Presidential Campaign on Nov. 15 in Florida

Former US President Donald Trump stated on Tuesday, Nov. 15, that he would make a “major announcement” from Mar-a-Lago, where he is expected to launch his presidential campaign in 2024.

“I’m going to be making a very big announcement on Tuesday, Nov. 15 at Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida,” Trump declared on the eve of the midterm elections at a Save America rally in Vandalia, Ohio. “We want nothing to detract from the importance of tomorrow,” he continued, presumably to explain why he wasn’t announcing his run that night.

Trump was reportedly considering whether to launch his third presidential campaign on the eve of Election Day, but Republicans were concerned that doing so would energize Democrats while potentially losing independent voters.

Several foreign media outlets have reported that Trump is eager to launch his third presidential campaign, and preparations for campaign infrastructure and staffing have accelerated dramatically in recent weeks, with an early list of top aides apparently having come together.
