What Is a Meaning of Former President Donald Trump' Announcement of a White House Bid for 2024?

On 15th November, Former US President Donald Trump announced that he would run for the Presidential Election of 2024.

Even after losing to Democratic candidate Joe Biden in the 2020 Presidential Election, he has continued to show his will to rerun and has noticed that he will make a special announcement on 10th November. In this meaning, this announcement is an expected event.

Mr. Trump has announced his candidacy this time because he wants to get ahead of influential Republican candidates such as Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and Former Vice President Mike Pence. There is speculation to try to take the initiative in the primary election.

In the US midterm elections, which are still being counted, 162 of the 180 candidates Trump has endorsed for both the House and Senate have so far secured victory, though they are independents in hotly contested states. Scepticism about Mr. Trump's leadership has emerged within the Republican Party, in part due to his loss to a democratic candidate who has embraced the ranks.

Therefore, it can be inferred that he intends to maintain his centripetal force within the party by announcing his candidacy for the presidency early.

In addition, the fact that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) conducted an investigation into the handling of classified documents during the presidency was one of the reasons for Mr. Trump's early announcement of his candidacy.

In other words, if he becomes a candidate for the 2024 Presidential Election, prosecuting Mr. Trump could invite criticism that it is judicial intervention in politics. That is why the authorities are more likely to hesitate to prosecute Mr. Trump, and his personal security might be ensured.

On the other hand, among the incumbent Biden and the other 44 presidents of the United States, Grover Cleveland is the only one, who, like Trump, has been unsuccessful in seeking re-election and then winning. Now we know that winning the 2024 presidential election will not be easy.

For that reason, attention is paid to what kind of campaign Mr. Trump will carry out in the future, or what will be the result.
