Donald Trump states that he will ‘very, very, very probably’ run for president in 2024

At a Republican rally in Sioux City, Iowa on Friday, former president Donald Trump announced to his crowd that it was likely that he would choose to run again in the next US presidential election. He stated: “In order to make our country successful and safe and glorious, I will very, very, very probably do it again … Get ready, that’s all I’m telling you – very soon. Get ready.”

There has been extensive speculation that Trump will take further action in the coming weeks, as he seeks to benefit from any Republican gains in tomorrow’s midterm elections. If he does indeed choose to run, he will face a number of potential Republican rivals including former Vice-President Mike Pence and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.

Donald Trump served as the 45th president of the United States between 2017 and 2021. He was, undeniably, one of the most controversial presidents of all time. Having won the 2016 presidential election with no government or military experience – he was, instead, a businessman and media personality – he promoted right-wing politics based in populism, isolationism, and nationalism throughout his presidency, and was repeatedly criticised for explicitly sexist and racist comments.

Some of Trump’s most controversial actions as president included enforcing a travel ban on citizens from numerous Muslim-majority countries, creating a policy that separated migrant families, and putting funding towards building a wall on the US-Mexico border. He also promoted misinformation during the COVID-19 pandemic, started a trade war with China, and withdrew the US from the Paris Agreement on climate change.

He was impeached twice: once in 2019 for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress after he pressured Ukraine to investigate Biden, and again in January 2021 for incitement of insurrection following the January 6 Capitol attack in 2021. After the attack, Trump was also banned from Twitter and faced other exclusions from mainstream media. This was because he was largely believed to have incited the attack by calling his supporters to act upon his false claim that the 2020 election had been "stolen by emboldened radical-left Democrats" through electoral fraud.

The damage that Trump’s presidency inflicted upon American democracy remains fresh in many Americans' minds. His potential return is thus a deep concern for many. With the US midterm elections tomorrow, America finds itself once again in a position of political change and potential instability -  and tomorrow’s results will be a vital indicator of the political direction in which the nation is likely to follow.
