MADRID, July 3 (EUROPA PRESS) –
Former United States President Donald Trump is “seriously” considering the possibility of no earlier than this summer announcing his second candidacy for the presidency of the United States in the 2024 election, according to sources close to the tycoon quoted by CBS News.
Trump has already privately shared his intentions with his closest circle of friends, a possibility that The New York Times newspaper has already put forward.
Should he not announce it in the summer, Trump is also considering the possibility of presenting his candidacy in November’s general election campaign.
Sources close to the former president understand that Trump wants to use his candidacy in part as a platform to defend himself against allegations that he instigated the attack on the Capitol in January 2021, although he understands that the Republican Party is not doing so enough to protect you.
Trump’s superiority over party supporters remains enormous. According to a poll published by the University of Emerson College and collected by The Hill newspaper, the tycoon would clearly defeat current US President Joe Biden in the next presidential election with 44 percent to 39 percent of the vote.
Biden has already expressed his intention to run for a second term as president, although some Democratic voices have already questioned his eligibility.
56 percent of Republican voters would back Trump in the GOP primary. 20 percent would support Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis; 9 percent to former Vice President Mike Pence and the remaining options no more than 5 percent.
