Former US President Donald Trump will announce his candidacy for the presidency of the United States again next Tuesday, according to his adviser Jason Miller. Trump’s upcoming announcement comes after the defeat of most of the candidates he supported in the midterm elections that took place on Tuesday, without achieving a “giant red wave” from Republicans, as he expected.
Jason Miller, an adviser to former US President Donald Trump, said Friday that the latter will announce his candidacy for the 2024 presidential election, next Tuesday.
The real estate mogul had previously hinted at the possibility of his candidacy again, saying that he would make a “big announcement” from his Florida residence on the fifteenth of November.
The Trump adviser added, via the “War Room” podcast presented by another friend of the former Republican president, Steve Bannon, that “President Trump will announce on Tuesday that he is a candidate for the presidential election. It will be a very professional and very elaborate announcement.”

In recent days, Trump no longer raised much suspense about the possibility of his candidacy, especially after American media close to the Republicans blamed him for the unexpected losses of the Republicans in the midterm elections and called for his “abandonment.”
Miller noted that earlier Friday he met Trump, 76, who told him, “Of course I’m going to run. I’m going to do it, and I want to make sure people realize I’m excited and that we need to get the country back on track. Everyone knows I’m going to run.”
This will be Trump’s third nomination in the race for the White House. Although his influence on the Republican Party is undeniable, the former Republican president emerged weak last Tuesday from the midterm elections that disappointed many members of his party.
While the final results are not yet out, it appears that the Democrats have managed to limit their losses.
Several days after the polls, the counting of votes continued on Friday amid an atmosphere of suspense, while the control of any party in Congress has not yet been resolved.
The Republicans appeared to be on course for a majority in the House of Representatives, but they are still 7 seats short.
For the Senate, a vote in Nevada and another in Arizona could be decisive. If either party wins these two seats, it will secure control of the Senate.
