The sound U hear in the hustlings are Democrats cheering and some Republicans crying…..
Yes, he maybe the ‘head’ of the base….
But a LOT of people running the party ain’t happy…..
This early throwdown isn’t gonna stop other GOPer’s from running like some in the media have hinted at….
In fact Trump IS trailing Florida GOP Gov. Ron DeSantis is several states right now in the polls…
Trump’s minions lost in big numbers a few days ago….
Trump & Co. are STILL the subjects of several civil and criminal investigations in different places….
Ever ‘The Donald’?
The battered and hurting ‘Big Apple’ Real Estate , Entertainer and ex-President is plunging on….
And could just tear the Grand ole Party into piece’s…
We’ll will get to see how this goes…..
Trump’s preemptive attack on two promising potential 2024 Republican challengers — DeSantis and Glenn Youngkin of Virginia — is also exacerbating tensions with fellow Republicans. Since the election, Trump has publicly mocked Youngkin’s name and attacked “Ron Desanctimonious” as insufficiently loyal.
Both men won battleground races for governor in the last two years.
“I don’t understand why he’s going after DeSantis,” said Rep. Ralph Norman(R-S.C.), a member of the pro-Trump House Freedom Caucus. “He’s basically carrying out Trump’s policies. Look what he’s done in Florida. That’s the only state where we had a red day. They’re in lockstep policies.”
Congressional Republicans were slow to embrace Trump during the 2016 cycle, but by the time he was running for re-election, almost the entire party was behind him. This time Trump starts out somewhere in between — and even those who back him aren’t bending to his every whim.
Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-Ala.) said he would support Trump, but that he also backs McConnell as GOP leader.
“Is that an oxymoron?” Tuberville asked rhetorically, referring to the long-running bad blood between the two men. “Everybody’s got their opinion. As I just said, I represent Alabama.”…
Donald Trump, who lost the 2020 election and left the White House under the cloud of impeachment for his role in the Jan. 6 riots on Capitol Hill, is running for president again.
The 45th president filed a statement of candidacy for a second term on Tuesday, shortly before announcing at a primetime event at his Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, Florida.
It is an extraordinary — although long anticipated — move for Trump, one certain to reshape his party’s trajectory, raise complicated legal questions and alter the presidency for the man who defeated him, Joe Biden….
At rallies and political events during the midterms, Trump’s message has mainly focused on the economy, the border, crime and the Biden administration. But he continued to fixate on his own legal issues and his 2020 election loss, insisting without evidence that there was widespread voter fraud.
Republicans say those fixations are a liability with voters. And there are renewed fears about a Trump candidacy following the party’s poor showing in the 2022 midterm elections, when a number of candidates backed by the former president failed to win key state and federal offices.
Historically, Trump is in rare company with his announcement of another run. Only one other president, Democrat Grover Cleveland, left the White House and ran for a second term four years later….
