Election 2024 Trump

Former President Donald Trump arrives to speak at Mar-a-lago on Election Day, Nov. 8 in Palm Beach, Fla. Trump is preparing to launch his third campaign for the White House.

Donald Trump announced his 2024 run for the presidency on Nov. 15. In his address he railed against what he perceived as the “persecution” of himself and his family, but made scant mention of his legal woes.

Confirmation of Trump’s White House bid comes at a curious time — a week after a lackluster Republican midterm performance that many blamed on him. Moreover, it comes as the former president faces multiple criminal investigations over everything from his handling of classified documents, to allegations of falsifying the value of New York properties. There is also the not-so-small matter of a Justice Department investigation into the Jan. 6 storming of the Capitol.
