The 2024 presidential campaign will be announced by former president Donald Trump on Tuesday, according to advisor Jason Miller on a podcast.
Miller noted that the announcement will be “very professional, very buttoned up” and that Trump’s team had gone over the arrangements on Friday of last week when speaking on Steve Bannon‘s podcast.

The former president, according to Miller, assured him “there doesn’t need to be any question. Of course I’m running. I’m going to do this and I want to make sure people know that I’m fired up.”
Miller was a senior advisor to the Trump 2020 re-election campaign.
Some advisors are still pleading with the former president to delay any announcements, but the majority understand that this is unlikely to change Trump’s mind.

Trump has recently reminded those around him that Republicans and some conservative media turned their backs on him in 2016 and he still won, amid criticism over the disappointing midterm results and poor performances by numerous Trump-endorsed candidates.
Trump’s statement is likely to be made at a time when many Republicans are debating whether the former president should remain in charge of the party moving forward. The idea that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis would be a stronger candidate for the GOP nomination in 2024 has plainly offended Trump. DeSantis easily won reelection in his home state on Tuesday.

Many are worried that he lacks the charisma that propelled him to the White House six years ago, particularly as he continues to emphasise the promotion of election-related conspiracies, a strategy that mostly failed last Tuesday.
Who will attend the ceremony on Tuesday is still unknown. Reps. Elise Stefanik, Matt Gaetz, and Jim Banks, among Trump’s most ardent backers, will be preoccupied with their own House leadership elections in Washington on that day.
