After months of speculation and anticipation, former President Donald Trump has officially announced his candidacy for the 2024 presidential election.

Trump made the announcement Tuesday evening during a crowded rally at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida.

“My fellow citizens, America’s comeback starts right now,” Trump said. “... In order to make America great and glorious again, I am tonight announcing my candidacy for President of the United States.”

Trump criticized the Biden Administration and vowed to make America a “great nation” again. This will be his third bid for the White House after losing to Joe Biden in 2020.
