Former US President Donald Trump has begun preparing for the election campaign to run again for the presidency. This is evidenced by the growth of Trump's activity in the media and his campaign launched a campaign to raise funds for the election race, according to Politico.
“Trump sees Biden is on the ropes. He wants to throw punches as a combatant, not a heckler from the stands,” said House of Representatives member from Florida Matt Gaetz, who is among the friends and advisers of the former president.
He added that Trump is in no hurry to announce his plans to run for president because the electorate is firmly loyal to him.
“And a good rule in politics is to be a candidate for as short a time as necessary,” the parliamentarian added.
In addition, Trump has appointed a new public relations officer, and several rallies have been included in his fall schedule. There are plans to hold events in Iowa, which traditionally begins presidential campaigns, in Florida, and in the critical state of Georgia, whose electoral preferences often determine the outcome of elections.
According to Gaetz, it is more likely that Trump will take a decisive step by announcing his decision to run for a second presidential term after the 2022 midterm elections if the Republican Party regains control of one or both houses of Congress.
Trump's interest and motivation to fight for the country's top job has been exacerbated by the deteriorating political situation for President Joe Biden amid the resurgence of the coronavirus in the United States and the capture of Kabul by the Taliban on August 15.
As it was reported earlier, at the end of February this year, Trump did not rule out that he would run for president of the United States again in 2024.
At the same time, former US President Donald Trump sharply criticized the policy of his successor Joe Biden, describing it as a transition from the idea of “America above all else” to “America in last place.”
