Former President Donald Trump announced Tuesday that he will seek the presidency again in 2024, even as a rising number of Republicans are urging the party to look elsewhere in light of their 2022 midterm debacle.
Minutes before his scheduled 9 p.m. announcement from Mar-a-Lago, Trump filed paperwork with the Federal Election Commission saying he was running for president in 2024, and setting up a fundraising account.
"America's comeback starts right now," Trump said during his speech at his Mar-a-Lago home in Palm Beach, Florida. Trump had hoped to use a ceremony at his Mar-a-Lago home to seize credit for Republican election victories; but the GOP's failure to take the Senate and struggles in House races scotched that plan and forced Trump onto the political defensive.
