Donald Trump, the only U.S. president to have attempted a coup to remain in power and who is now under multiple criminal investigations for it, nevertheless plans to announce Tuesday night that he is running to regain his old job in 2024 — with polls suggesting he could win the Republican Party nomination again.

The 9 p.m. announcement Trump’s aides were trying to rustle up as many supporters as possible to attend, remained on schedule, despite some Republicans advising him to postpone because of the dismal performance of his anointed candidates in last week’s midterm elections as well as the Dec. 6 runoff between Republican Herschel Walker and Democratic incumbent Sen. Raphael Warnock in Georgia.

Trump Candidats who wanted his support to spread his lies about the 2020 elections were required “stolen” He and dozens of other candidates from across the country were willing to trade with him. However, the most prominent of these races was the one in which I was involved. Trump’s candidates lost to Democrats.

Trump’s choices for governor in Michigan, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Maryland and Arizona, for secretary of state in Arizona, Michigan and Nevada, and for U.S. Senate in Arizona, Nevada, Pennsylvania and New Hampshire all were defeated.

After previously expecting to win 60 seats, the Senate defeats ensured that Democrats will continue to control the chamber for the next two-years. Republicans are likely to have a slim majority in the House.

“He got his ass kicked,” One top Trump Advisor on condition that anonymity is respected “And he knows it.”

If Walker ― whom Trump personally recruited based on their friendship from his professional football days ― loses next month, Democrats would have a 51-49 clear majority in the Senate and not need Vice President Kamala Harris will break tie votes They also would have an easier time getting judicial nominations through the committee and onto a floor.

Many Republicans are concerned about the impact of this. Trump’s announcement, Democrats will be able to make him the face of Republicans in that runoff and drive up Democratic turnout.

TrumpBut, the outcome was so certain, that Republicans would win in an overwhelming majority “red wave” He stated that he would announce his decision Tuesday night, a day before the midterms. Now, he feels that he can’t change that date.

“I think he’s afraid of looking stupid,” The adviser stated.

Trump Although the Republican Party is deeply unpopular, it has more supporters than any potential challenger. These circumstances could almost be identical to 2016. The year 2016 was a record-breaking year. Trump won the GOP nomination despite never having the support of more than about one-third of the party’s primary voters until he had secured the presidential nomination.

He remains to see if he can win again. He was a star game show host, who had successfully marketed himself as a bold but skilled billionaire businessman. He could be facing criminal charges in 2024 for both his attempted coup and for removing high-secret documents from White House.

A successful campaign is made even more valuable by the possibility of criminal charges.

For The last 10 months Trump If he is ever charged in any of these investigations, he has been calling for civil disobedience. He’s labeled the FBI and the Department of Justice “corrupt” He warned his followers that he would be arrested and they should engage in the largest demonstrations. “would not take it.”

He can now claim that prosecutors are only trying to keep him out the White House. They would also almost certainly have to suspend any criminal charges for the duration his presidency, should he win another term.

Official Justice Department policy since the end of Richard Nixon’s tenure was not to pursue investigations into sitting presidents — which could likely mean federal prosecutors would suspend any ongoing actions against Trump Should he retake power.

While state prosecutors are not included in the federal policy, Supreme Court justices argued that New York State prosecutors were.

George Conway, the ghost-writer of the Supreme Court brief in Bill Clinton’s Paula Jones civil case against him, stated that there is no specific case law to his matter. Trump’s potential situation, he is confident that the high court will take seriously the Constitution’s Article II powers and duties that a president is entrusted with.

“If Article II prevents a federal prosecution, I don’t think there’s any question it would prevent a state prosecution,” He said that these protections would be in effect even if the victim is not at home. Trump Somehow, the 2024 election was won from behind bars. “He could run for office from prison. And if he wins, you’d have to spring him.”

Autoritarianism experts worry, however, that Trump He would view an election win as a confirmation of all his past actions, including his acceptance of Russian help to win in 2016, his willingness to allow Russia to assist him in winning in 2016, and his extortion of Ukraine in 2019 that led to his first impeachment. His second was triggered by his 2020 coup attempt.

Worse, he might declare that he owes more time at the White House than just 4 years due to having to deal with various investigations.

Despite Losing the 2020 election by 7,000,000 votes nationally and 306-232 at the Electoral College Trump In more than two centuries, the United States president refused to hand power over peacefully. The Jan. 6 assault on the Capitol — which he incited in a last-ditch attempt to remain in office ― resulted in five deaths, including the death of a police officer, 140 injured officers and four police suicides.

Nevertheless, Trump The Republican Party’s dominant figure, Donald Trump, began publicly speaking out about running for the presidency in February 2021. It was barely one month after his resignation.

According to statements made on his personal social media platform Trump has continued to lie about the election and the Jan. 6 committee’s work, calling it a “hoax” similar to previous investigations into his 2016 campaign’s acceptance of Russian assistance and his attempted extortion of Ukraine into helping his 2020 campaign.
