The former president of the United States, Donald Trump, confirmed this Tuesday that he aspires to be a candidate in the 2024 presidential elections and thus opened the race for the republican nomination in which two other possible candidates are glimpsed for now, Ron DeSantis and Mike Pence, former allies of his.
Trump, 76, chose the opulence of his Mar-a-Lago Florida mansion to make an announcement that had been hinting for months and that it comes at a time when his political star is not what it used to be and is facing problems with the courts and Congress.
The tycoon focused on presenting himself as the candidate who can save the US from a debacle and restore the “glory” lost after his presidency.
True to his populist style, Trump also used much of his hour-long speech to lash out at President Joe Biden., its management and some oversights. In addition, he took the opportunity to boast of the “achievements” that were achieved during his time in the White House.
“Now we have a president who falls asleep at world conferences which confuses the name of the country it is going to with that of another one that is on a different continent and that is bringing us to the brink of nuclear war, which was an unimaginable concept just two years ago,” Trump said to mock Biden.
The former president also does not forgive Biden for his defeat and blames him for having “ruined” the country. “The last two years under Biden have been a time of pain, anxiety and decline” said the Republican, who criticized the inflation in the country or the “energy dependence” that he says is caused by Biden, not the war.
“The world was at peace and America was a prosperous country on its way to an incredible future”, stressed the tycoon. “In two years, the Biden administration has destroyed America’s economy. We are going to rebuild the economy of this country… I did it twice, before the covid and after, and we will do it again,” he added.
Trump also assured that the war in Ukraine with him “would never have happened”, and has boasted that no conflict of the magnitude of the war in Europe broke out during his tenure. “They are leading us to nuclear war. They talk about saving the oceans, but they don’t worry about weapons that can destroy us.”ironized regarding Biden’s return to the climate agenda.
Already looking at the campaign, Trump promised “fight like no one has ever fought” to prevent Biden from having a second termAlthough the Democrat will announce his decision on his candidacy in early 2023.
According to Trump, these two years with Biden have filled the country with “invaders” who traffic drugs and “mistakes” that have turned the United States into “the laughing stock of the world.” “It does not have to be like that. Two years ago we were a great nation and soon we will be again. Biden is forcing the decline of America on us and that is not a fate we should accept,” she noted.
“Our southern border is not secure… Millions invade us and we will pay a great price for this invasion that has generated an increase in crime,” Trump cried to applause. “For all this, to make america great againI announce that I will present myself in 2024”, he concluded.
