There will be a “big announcement” today.
Will Trump run again in 2024?
Former US President Donald Trump (76) promised a “big announcement” on Tuesday. He is expected to comment on a possible run for the 2024 election.
Still coming up as a possible Republican candidate for the 2024 presidential election: Donald Trump.

Did the midterm elections spoil Donald Trump’s (76) appetite for the office of US president? Or is he ignoring critics in his own party? On Tuesday, it should be clear whether the Republican will run for president again in 2024.
One day before the midterm elections, Trump fueled expectations last week: “I’m going to make a very big announcement on Tuesday, November 15th.” Hopefully this day will be the most important day in US history, the former president wrote on his social media platform Truth Social.
criticism from among themselves
It is now clear that the Republicans could not challenge the Democrats for control of the Senate as they had hoped. This brought Trump criticism from within his own ranks. By supporting outsider candidates with little chance of success, he damaged the party in the by-elections, so the tenor.
Candidate Kari Lake, 53, whom he supported, was projected to lose the recent Arizona gubernatorial election, according to projections. Democrat Katie Hobbs (52) apparently got into the race instead.
Former allies have their own ambitions
Trump’s former vice president Mike Pence (63) is now distancing himself from his former companion. He thinks there will be better alternatives in the future, Pence said in an interview with ABC News on Monday. Pence was also thinking of himself: He and his family were considering a Republican run, he said.
Trump’s biggest intra-party opponent for a 2024 bid is likely to be Ron DeSantis, 44, the governor of Florida. DeSantis was clearly re-elected in the midterm elections. The former student of Trump thus became a new star among Republicans. He has not yet officially announced his ambitions for the US presidency. But DeSantis wants more. Immediately after winning the election, he made it clear: “For me, the fight has only just begun,” he said.

Majority in the House of Representatives
What Trump now wants to announce at 9pm local time (Wednesday 3am Swiss time) at his private Mar-a-Lago estate “Big” has left him officially in the dark. Meanwhile, a narrow majority for Republicans is emerging in the House of Representatives. What is also certain is that Trump can count on his staunch “Make America Great Again” base.
Whether the former US president will actually be the Republican nominee for 2024 ultimately rests in the hands of the party. In the primaries, Trump would first have to win the internal party election campaign.
