Former President Donald Trump, empowered by his control over Truth Social (and resulting ability to say what he wants without censorship) and boosted by both his solid midterm endorsement record and how generally awful President Joe Biden’s America has gotten, dropped some big news.
Posting on Truth Social at 1 am on Tuesday the 15th of November, former President Donald Trump said:
Hopefully TODAY will turn out to be one of the most important days in the history of our Country!
That follows another recent post of Trump’s on Truth Social in which he said “I am going to be making a very big announcement on Tuesday, November 15th at Mar a Lago—in Palm Beach, Florida!”
And, during a rally around the same time as that post, former President Trump said:
“Two years ago we were a great nation, and we will be a great nation again. Not to detract from tomorrow’s very important even critical election… I’m going to be making a very big announcement on Tuesday Nov. 15 at Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach.”
With all those statements, many people expect that Trump’s announcement today will be that he is planning on running for the Presidency in 2024, though some suspect that he could also be trying to usurp power in the legislature by announcing he’s running for Speaker of the House.
While that position is traditionally held by someone in the House of Reps, it doesn’t have to be, so Trump could conceivably run for and win the position now that the GOP has won enough seats to take power in the House.
But most still expect Trump’s announcement will be about the 2024 presidential race. Nancy Pelosi, for instance, recently freaked out about a Trump run and tried to preemptively combat the GOP narrative about the Biden presidency so far, saying:
“President Biden has been a great president for our country. Over 10 million jobs under his leadership. Working with the private sector, of course. He has just done so many things that are so great.”
“He’s put money in people’s pockets, vaccines in their arms, children back to school, people back to work, for starters, creating 10 million jobs.
“He has made America independent by passing the CHIPS bill that says we’re no longer reliant on those who would withhold products that enable us to manufacture in our country. The [Inflation Reduction Act]… $368 billion in good-paying green jobs, clean air, clean water for our children, national security issue to stop migrations and competition for habitat and food, as well as honoring our responsibility to future generations.
“The PACT Act, honoring our veterans, the bipartisan infrastructure bill, all of it with justice, with equity, with inclusiveness, with diversity, taking us to a new place. He has been a great president and he has a great record to run on.”
So what will Trump announce? We’ll have to tune in tonight to find out. But, if the swirling rumors are to be believed, Trump is tossing his hat back in the presidential ring.
