Former U.S. President Donald Trump hinted several times during midterm campaign rallies that he would be running again for the White House. On Wednesday morning, Taiwan time, Trump launched a new White House bid from a gilt-edged ballroom at his Florida resort, hoping to box out potential Republican rivals and return his false claims of election fraud to the center of U.S. politics.
Donald Trump, Former US President: “In order to make America great and glorious again, I am tonight announcing my candidacy for president of the United States. ”
In his remarks, Trump called the past two years since Biden took office as a time of pain, hardship, anxiety and despair. He mentioned that Americans are facing the highest inflation in over 50 years, and gas prices have reached the highest levels in history. Trump will seek his party's nomination even as he faces trouble on several fronts, including a criminal investigation into the removal of classified documents from the White House as well as a congressional subpoena related to his role in the Jan. 6, 2021, U.S. Capitol attack by his supporters. Trump has called the various investigations he faces politically motivated and denies wrongdoing.
