Former President Donald Trump announced on Tuesday night that he is running again for the White House in 2024. 

"In order to make America great and glorious again, I am tonight announcing my candidacy for president of the United States," Trump said. 

The former president told a crowd of supporters at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida: “This will not be my campaign; this will be our campaign all together.”  

He vowed to ensure that “Joe Biden doesn’t get four more years,” calming that under his leadership “being destroyed before your eyes.”

Trump’s main message during his roughly hour-long speech focused on bringing Americans together through success. 

“We’re going to unify people and it was happening in the previous administration, previous to the previous, and what was bringing them together was success,” he said. 

"I am running because I believe the world has not yet seen the true glory of what this nation can be. We have not reached that pinnacle, believe it or not,” the former president said. 

Trump’s announcement was made just hours after the Republican Party has gained control of the House of Representatives. The former president called the GOP takeover “the beginning of our fight to rescue the American Dream.”

Trump addressed the Republican failure to generate a “red wave” in the midterms and meet expectations to win more seats in Congress. He protected his own record of Republican endorsements, saying that he supported 232 candidates of which only 22 lost their races.  

"Much criticism is being placed on the fact that the Republican Party should have done better and, frankly, much of this blame is correct. But the citizens of our country have not yet realized the full extent and gravity of the pain our nation is going through. And the total effect of the suffering is just starting to take hold,” he said. 

"I have no doubt that by 2024, it will, sadly, be much worse and they will see much more clearly what happened and what is happening to our country and the voting will be much different," Trump added.

The former president lamented what he called “a nation in decline,” accusing President Joe Biden of the state of inflation, increased gas prices, the border crisis, as well as the consequences of the war in Ukraine. A missile landed in Poland killing two people on Tuesday, bringing Europe closer to a wider war. According to Biden, the missile was “unlikely” to have been fired from Russia.

“Unlike Biden possibly getting us into World War III, which can seriously happen, I will keep America out of foolish and unnecessary foreign wars, just as I did for four straight years,” Trump said. 

“Ukraine would never have happened if I were still your president,” he added, stressing that even many Democrats “admit that.”

The former president also mentioned the Abraham Accords peace agreements between Israel and three Arab countries, as part of his administration’s successes on the foreign policy front.
