Trump's announcement follows the unveiling of his 2024 presidential election campaign. Trump, who served as U.S. president between 2017 and 2021, failed in his 2020 reelection bid and falsely claimed the election was stolen. The former U.S. president faces a potentially steep climb to once again secure the Republican Party presidential nomination, based on recent polling and his party's mixed performance in the 2022 midterm elections.
