Trump made a “very big announcement” for November 15 on Monday. It can be assumed that he wants to announce his candidacy for the presidential elections of 2024, which has long been hinted at.
The 76-year-old remains popular with Republican voters. And the few Republican politicians who broke with him after his lies about presidential election fraud were ostracized by the party.
But in the country as a whole, Trump is stirring so much controversy that many Republicans such as DeSantis or former Vice President Mike Pence are believed to be challenging him with their nomination. The 44-year-old DeSantis, also positioned on the right, is a particularly strong contender.
“If he starts, it could end up being very painful for him,” Trump said of the Florida governor. “I think he would make a mistake. I don’t think it would be good for the party.”
