“Get ready”
Trump hints at renewed candidacy – again

Since his defeat to US President Biden, Trump has talked about running again in the 2024 presidential election. He has not officially confirmed this so far – now the ex-president is alluding to his comeback. In an election campaign, he chooses unambiguous words.

Former US President Donald Trump has again hinted that he could run for the White House again in the 2024 election. “To make our country prosperous, safe and glorious, I will very, very, very likely do it again,” he said Thursday night (local time) at a Republican campaign event in Sioux City, Iowa. “Get ready, that’s all I’m telling you,” the 76-year-old added.

Trump appeared as a speaker at the rally in support of the Republican nominees for the November 8 congressional election. During his performance, the ex-president reiterated the long-disputed claim that he had also won the 2020 election. To this day, the Republican refuses to admit defeat to US President Joe Biden. Trump has been flirting with another presidential candidacy since he was voted out.

All 435 seats in the House of Representatives and about a third of the seats in the Senate will be reassigned next Tuesday in the US “midterm” elections – the middle of Biden’s tenure. In addition, governor elections are underway in several states. Polls show Republicans have a good chance of winning the House of Representatives. An exciting race for the majority is predicted for the Senate.

Judge orders surveillance of Trump companies

After a fraud case, the financial flows of Trump’s companies must be checked. A judge ruled in New York on Thursday to hire an independent accountant to audit the Trump organization. The judge thus complied with the request of New York Attorney General Letitia James, who had filed an extensive lawsuit against Trump at the end of September.

The decision now severely restricts the freedom of the company. For example, the Trump organization is prohibited from selling assets or undertaking restructuring without first notifying the court and James’s office. The independent accountant must have access to financial reports and other important information – and the company must pay the accountant itself.

The attorney general’s lawsuit is against Trump, his company named after him, and their three children, including Donald Junior, Eric and Ivanka. James accuses them of manipulating the goodwill of the Trump Organization on a large scale and for years. Among other things, she wants to ensure that the Trumps have to pay 250 million dollars (256 million euros) as compensation. Trump’s group rejects the allegations; Donald Trump himself has so far refused to testify.

In October, James called for some financial flows to be controlled. She feared Trump and his children would try to make pre-trial arrangements that would protect them from a possible conviction. There is every reason to believe that the defendants would continue to engage in similar fraudulent behavior until trial, she said.
