Donald Trump says he’ll run for president again in 2024

Former US President Donald Trump has launched his third bid for the White House, declaring: “America’s comeback starts right now.”

At his Florida estate, he said: “We have to save our country.”

Mr Trump’s announcement comes as some fellow Republicans have blamed him for the party’s lacklustre performance in last week’s midterms elections.

US President Joe Biden, who defeated Mr Trump two years ago, has said he may run for re-election in 2024.

Speaking from the ballroom of his Mar-a-Lago private club in Palm Beach on Tuesday night, Mr Trump said: “We are a nation in decline.

“We are a failing nation. For millions of Americans, the past two years under Joe Biden have been a time of pain, anxiety, hardship and despair.”

He continued: “In order to make America great and glorious again I am tonight announcing my candidacy for president of the United States.”

Minutes before his announcement, he filed paperwork with the Federal Election Commission declaring his presidential candidacy and setting up a fundraising account.

Mr Trump’s unusually early declaration for the election of 5 November 2024 is being seen as a tactic to steal a march on potential rivals for the Republicans’ White House nomination.

Though Mr Trump is the first to enter the race and instantly becomes the front-runner, he is expected to face challengers.

They may include his own former Vice-President Mike Pence, 63, and rising star Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, 44.
