Donald Trump promises to return

The 45th President of the united states, Donald Trump, announced Tuesday evening that he would seek the Republican presidential nomination in 2024. Investigations are ongoing into Trump’s actions during the mob attack at the Capitol on January 6 2021, as well as his storage of classified documents at the Mar-a-Lago estate after Trump left the presidency.

Surely, Trump is counting on an easy Republican nomination thanks to the support of his “nuclear electorate”. On the other hand, the recent midterm elections showed that Trump already had a clear candidate: Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who won re-election in the state by a wide margin and with strong voter support. independent. Some Republican leaders, experts say, aren’t keen on Trump’s possible return and will favor alternative candidates, including Florida Governor DeSantis, who is clearly laying the groundwork for a potential nomination.

Howard Schweber, a professor of American politics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, said: “What struck me about Trump’s statement was his weakness. under two different aspects. First, the show itself was not like the usual Trump. He was a rambling, distracted Trump who didn’t seem to know why he was doing this. In the past, when he ran for president, especially in 2016, his speeches were always characterized by fiery rhetoric and strong messages, this time that was not the case. The second striking thing is that GOP candidates often rely on Republican media support, in which the Murdoch empire plays a huge role. Rupert Murdoch’s reaction to Trump’s announcement can be seen in his New York Post this morning, which has been strongly pro-Trump in the past. This time, Trump’s statement only ran on the banner at the bottom of the first page, which read something like “Florida man made an announcement, see page 12″, which is an overt gesture of disrespect for Trump. This suggests that the Murdoch and Murdoch people believe that Trump is very, very weak within the Republican Party, and their perception tends to spill over to the masses. Both in terms of Trump’s own statement and his reaction to it, it seems to me that his position is weak. I expect there will be a conflict within the party between Trump and DeSantis. But for now, it certainly looks like the Florida governor is in a stronger position. I don’t think there’s a chance they’ll unite.”

“Donald Trump has gotten a lot of negative press lately, including from Republicans, but that’s exactly what happened in 2015. People forget that in 2015 the vast majority of the Republican Party hated and hated him openly. But that didn’t matter. Since the 1980s, Trump has acted on the principle that all press is good. Trump’s “nuclear electorate” thrives on criticism and negativity. Elon Musk is allowing him back on Twitter, and presumably he will, I think Donald Trump will be right back in the race Trump’s “nuclear electorate” backed him in 2015 because the Republican establishment was against trump, and the fact that the new republican establishment is now rebelling against trump, I think, will have the same effect as it did in 2015. I would be very surprised if trump and DeSantis were on the same ballot, I think trump only wants someone he can easily control r for the office of vice-president with him. I think that’s why he chose Mike Pence. And Mike Pence was easy to control until January 6, ”added in turn Jeremy Geddertdirector of the political science department at Assumption University in Massachusetts.
