Donald Trump seems to keep letting criticism roll off his back. Despite setbacks in the meantime for the Republicans and internal dissatisfaction with his behavior, he would like to run again for the US presidency. Many American citizens now have a bad image of him.
According to insiders, former US President Donald Trump wants to run in the presidential election in two years, despite the recent setbacks of his allies. “President Donald J. Trump and his team are working hard and are fully focused on saving our country,” it said hours before the Republican’s much-anticipated appearance at his Palm Beach estate.

Announcing his candidacy for the ballot on November 5, 2024, the 76-year-old would start the race unusually early, even by American standards. Should Trump win the election, he would become the second U.S. president to serve non-consecutive terms, after Grover Cleveland in the 19th century. However, Trump would have to overcome several obstacles to return to the White House.
DeSantis and Pence possible opponents
According to a Reuters/Ipsos poll ahead of the congressional elections, 53 percent of American citizens have a negative opinion of the businessman. For Republicans, that’s nearly one in four. In his party’s primary, he was likely to run against Florida’s newly elected and up-and-coming governor, 44-year-old Ron DeSantis. Trump’s own former vice president, 63-year-old Mike Pence, is also likely to throw his hat in the ring. Trump also faces several lawsuits and investigations, including his supporters’ storming of the Capitol on January 6, 2021. He denies any guilt and calls the allegations politically motivated.
After the disappointing performance of the Republicans in the congressional elections in early November, Trump has faced criticism from his party colleagues. Numerous prominent Republican allies lost their seats to the Democrats. As a result, the “red wave” hoped for by many Republicans — named after the party’s color — failed to materialize in Congress. “It should have been a huge red wave,” Maryland Governor Larry Hogan, a moderate Republican who would also consider running for president, said on Sunday. “And yet we didn’t perform.” This is the third straight election in which Trump has stolen victory from the Republicans, Hogan said. “I’m tired of losing.”
