Former President Donald Trump announced his bid for the 2024 presidential election late Tuesday, after losing the 2020 race for the White House to Joe Biden. Ahead of his announcement from Mar-a-Lago, Trump filed paperwork with the Federal Election Commission saying he is running for president in 2024 and setting up an account for fundraising.
"I am tonight announcing my candidacy for president of the United States," Trump told supporters. Trump's move comes as some supporters have called on Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis to seek the GOP’s nomination in 2024 and Biden has not formally announced if he will seek a second term.
Political parties often nominate the incumbent president for reelection if the leader is a member of their party. For example, after Trump won the 2016 presidential election, he was easily nominated by the Republican Party in 2020. And after Barack Obama won the 2008 race for the White House, he was nominated by the Democratic Party in the 2012 presidential election.
