But Don Jr., Melania, his wife despite the indifference, and Eric Trump, supported the return of their fathers.
His closest allies and friends had first advised Trump not to announce his 2024 presidential candidacy before the November 08 midterm elections and wiser advice would prevail. But his humiliating defeat in the Senate and the House, where his candidates failed and the promised red wave failed, robbed him of his center stage and he wants to return.
After promising his supporters that he would make a surprise announcement on November 15, Trump again went against the advice of his allies and friends to delay the announcement until after December 6 when the Georgia vote came to a runoff. He stopped his rivals from making their offer public – Ron DeSantis and former Vice President Mike Pence are out to get their revenge on him for calling him “weak.”
Maggie Habermann, a New York Times columnist and former New York Post reporter who has closely followed him on two presidential tours and interviewed him, knows Trump’s mentality because she said Trump only feels empowered and secure if he occupies the White House with due regard for the law. the baggage he is carrying.
The January 6 insurrection at the Capitol and his alleged incitement to the riot stashed 11,000 top-secret documents in his Florida home with the Department of Justice suing him and New York Attorney General Letitia James with a civil lawsuit suing him for $250 million for ongoing tax evasion and fraud. Media reports said that obtaining loans from banks (Deutsche Bank) by inflating the values of his property made him feel very insecure and cautious.
Billionaire media house owner Rupert Murdoch, who has been a close ally of him in networks such as Fox News TV, Fox News Digital, New York Post and Wall Street Journal, announced soon after that he would no longer support him. Run for the White House in 2024.
Murdock broke with Trump shortly after his dismal performance and red wave failure with his handpicked candidates failed when he introduced Ron DeSantis as the party’s receiver in the New York Post and attacked Trump with a cardboard barbs likening him to Humpty Dumpty as he fell in front of him. The wall is called Trumpty Dumpty.
According to media reports, Trump’s favorite daughter Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner resisted his pleas to stand by him on Nov. 15 and both felt burned in Washington. They don’t want to go back and subject their children to another bitter episode from his 2020 campaign.
“They both feel burned out in Washington and don’t want to go back to exposing themselves and their children to another bitter campaign,” a Trump insider told the tabloid.
Like Melania, Trump’s wife, the duo did not have a happy time in Washington and reportedly fell out with allies like John Kelly, Kellyanne Conway, Steve Bannon and Chris Christie, all of whom were Trump’s closest allies during his 2016-20 presidency.
Mary Trump, often considered the black sheep of the family, Trump’s niece, rubbed him on the wrong side and has emerged as one of her uncle’s most consistent critics since the release of her book about him, Too Much and Never Enough.
Calling him a “black hole of need,” Mary Trump said the power-hungry Trump was ticking the clock on his watch before the Justice Department and Attorney General Merrick Garland to decide whether to indict him over the disposal of top-secret documents. to his home in Florida.
“If not, much worse things will start to happen,” she warned.
Trump’s bid for the presidency in 2024 reveals no new promises or a new campaign but reiterates his old rhetoric of the 2016 that put him in office–fight crime, rebuild the economy, stem the flow of fentanyl and other deadly drugs, reduce dependence on foreign oil, and protect America from threats. external.
However, Trump faces the greatest threat from his own party, the Republican Party, which is rapidly losing confidence in him as a star activist after the failure of his red wave and many of his candidates being overturned by Democrats such as Mehmet Oz, Lara Lake and Herschel Walker. among others.
The 2022 midterm elections did not result in the hoped-for “red wave,” and Trump-endorsed candidates have had a disappointing showing, Forbes says. Instead of cheering for a possible second term, key Republican supporters are said to be looking for a more benign name to fall back on.
The most prominent name that was circulated was Ron DeSantis, whom Trump and his daughter Laura warned against competing or facing the consequences.
On the other hand, although Biden succeeded in eliminating the red wave and retained the Senate, gaining 50 seats and narrowing the lead by 209 seats to 217 seats for the Republicans, that is, only one seat away from the majority of 281, but the results in California and Georgia so far For the decision to be made, the Democrats still have a slim chance of keeping the house. Biden is not being favored within the party because they feel he is too old at 82 for 2024 and the younger California governor Gavin Newsom should be given a chance.
Despite Trump’s failure to win back the Senate, some Republicans still believe he is the man to beat him in 2024.
A new poll conducted by Politico and Morning Consult after the midterm elections found that 47 percent of GOP voters would still support the former president if the primary were held today. But that figure is down one percent from 48 percent before the midterm.
What really worries Trump is that, of those polled, only 61 percent said they think Trump should run for another term, which is a 10 percent drop from the 71 percent who felt he should run before results began. Midterms in streaming.
The poll also had a startling revelation: 33 percent of Republican voters said they would throw power with Ron DeSantis if he secured the party’s nomination. That’s a jump of 7 percent for the Florida governor from the run-up to the midterm elections, and that spells bad news for Trump.
In recent months, DeSantis has distanced himself from Trump, and the former president didn’t take that well. Trump named DeSantis by calling him disloyal and referring to him as “Ron DeSanctimonious,” which even his conservative allies have called divisive.
During his November 15 speech, Trump declared that “America’s comeback begins now.” It remains to be seen if his return will be a success.
