Trump has announced he has made his decision about 2024, if he will run then I hope he announces before the midterms to frighten more people into voting for the Dems.

Here is a link to the incredibly obscure journal in which he chose to share this with us (Total circulation: 406,237).
His announcement to run will probably be purely to avoid prosecution

Re: All about Trump and 2024

Trump announced the death of Ivana Trump, and in added a fund raising link for his political platform. I believe this was in an email sent to supporters. Stay classy.

Re: All about Trump and 2024

A group of eight prominent Republicans including judges and lawyers have reached the "unequivocal" conclusion that the 2020 presidential election was not "stolen" from former President Donald Trump.

The report reviewed the details of all 64 failed lawsuits launched in the aftermath of the election, as well as multiple post-election reviews and audits that failed to prove massive fraud. The Republicans wrote that, "Trump and his supporters had their day in court and failed to produce substantive evidence to make their case."

The report "LOST NOT STOLEN: The Conservative Case that Trump Lost and Biden Won the 2020 Presidential Election" can be downloaded here (all 72 pages).

One example from the report
Quote:
3.Absentee Ballot Drop Box Video Surveillance.

Challengers alleged that ballots were deposited in remote, unattended absentee-ballot drop boxes without meaningful opportunity to observe or challenge the ballots, in violation of state law.
A state court found that the challengers provided no factual basis to support their allegations.
Responsible experts in election procedure have observed that unattended drop boxes are inconsistent with best practices and are insufficiently protected against potential fraud. But that is not the same as saying that in any particular election, there actually was a fraud.

Persons who claim that a democratic election has been tainted by fraud bear a burden, both in court and in public discourse, to rely on provable facts and actual evidence.
It is poisonous to our system for people on either side of the aisle to lodge allegations of voting fraud without being able to back them up.

Re: All about Trump and 2024

Due to the bad Press hitting Trump at the moment he will have to soon declare his candidacy for the President otherwise if waiting too long he will risk getting so damaged that there will be a competitive primary instead of a shoo-in.

Declaring before the mid-terms would be a great gift for Biden and the Dems.

Re: All about Trump and 2024

I don't know where this fits in best, so I try here. Great piece about conservatism, becoming milder, and being truthful to fundamental principles rather than policy preferences.

Might require subscription, although mostly his newsletter is free. I can post the full article if desired.

Re: All about Trump and 2024

The latest about Truth Social.

Quote:
The colourful Rocket man behind Donald Trump’s stalled stock debut.
The debut is stalled due to a couple of investigations by the SEC and a New York grand jury about Trump's stock debut and presumably about how well the relevant regulations were followed.

A lawyer for Rocket One and its founder, Michael Shvartsman, denied they had any advance knowledge of the merger between Digital World and Trump Media.

Months before former President Donald Trump's social media company unveiled an agreement to raise hundreds of millions of dollars last fall, it is claimed word of the deal leaked to an obscure Miami investment firm, whose executives began plotting ways to make money off the imminent transaction, according to people familiar with the discussions.

A top Rocket One executive, Bruce Garelick, was on the board of Digital World until he resigned in recent weeks.

It is claimed that Shvartsman once issued a lawsuit against the Edmonton police department that they issued false and malicious allegations including that his nightclub was backed with Russian Mafia money.

Edmonton police claim the lawsuit was dismissed and they won many thousands of dollars in compensation.
Trump's alleged links to colourful characters seem to cause more problems than they are worth?

Re: All about Trump and 2024

The New York Post is a right leaning conservative newspaper, from yesterday's editorial "As a matter of principle, as a matter of character, Trump has proven himself unworthy to be this country’s chief executive again."

Ingraham was fronting DeSantis the other day despite a live Trump "rally" at the same time. All relevant focus group interviews I have read about point to GOP voters preferring another candidate in 2024.

She would be great in a foreign policy capacity, but can't see a black, "neocon", "RINO" making any ticket in today's GOP.

What do you base the statement that a black person would not do well as a GOP candidate.

Being a GWB neocon disqualifies her in my eyes, but if not for that I would vote for her in a second.

You are right, black is not the factor here. But I agree, she would never be able to win anything with the GWB legacy. Although personally I think she is great and from a European perspective an isolationist US is more scary than a "neocon" US.

Sigh, I remember when Europeans could take of themselves.

Now it seems, they give their residents fat socialist payoffs while waiting for others to come and die for them
