On Tuesday, 45th President Donald J. Trump announced his run for president in 2024 with a lively crowd of supporters at his home at Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida. Trump went right out of the gate praising the Make America Great Again (MAGA) movement, telling the crowd, “This is the greatest country in the history of the world,” saying, “There has never been anything like it — this movement of ours.”
The crowd roared chants of, “TRUMP! TRUMP! TRUMP!”
Trump said, “America’s comeback starts right now.”
He noted his massive successes under his reign as president. He said, “Together, we built the greatest economy in the history of the world.”
Regarding a comeback after the Coronavirus pandemic, Trump said, “The number one fastest economic recovery ever recovery, how about that?” He also noted how China may have played a significant role in the 2020 election.
“China played a very active role in the 2020 election,” he said.
“Joe Biden has intentionally surrendered our energy independence,” said Trump of Joe Biden’s work to cripple the oil and gas industry — ripping the United States of its independence.
“The United States has been embarrassed… and weakened for all to see,” the President said.
Trump noted how the invasion of Ukraine “would never have happened if I were your president.”
Our enemies are speaking of us of scorn, laughter, and derision,” Trump added.
“But we are here to declare it does not have to be this way. It does not have to be this way. Two years ago, we were a great nation, and soon 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 nation right into the ground.”
“Despite a ridiculously long and unnecessary period of waiting… just a short time ago, the Republicans won back the House of Representatives,” said the President regarding the November 8 midterm elections, saying Pelosi has been “fired.” Trump also touted Herschel Walker, saying he would make “a great United States senator.”
“I am tonight announcing my candidacy for president of the United States,” said Trump.
“This will not be my campaign, this will be our campaign altogether.”
“The Washington establishment wants to silence us, but we will not let them do that.”
“We will win because we will fight with every measure of our strength and every ounce of our energy,” Trump concluded.
