The third race for the White House that Donald Trump formalized Tuesday night at his lavish Mar-a-Lago residence begins rising upwards, despite four years of a whirlwind presidency, a litigation he has survived, and an incitement to assault the Capitol after repeated lies about electoral fraud and investigations. the many attacks that surround him and from which he now relies to better defend himself as a persecuted “victim” than Al Capone.
“America’s resurgence begins today,” he began, before relaunching the slogan America First promising a “new golden age,” accusing Joe Biden of a country now “in decline, humiliated, and ridiculed on its international stage.” As “on the brink of nuclear war” because of the Ukrainian conflict.
But For the first time, the big networks cut him short and many began to turn their backs on himAs the number of potential challengers grows in an increasingly divided GOP party for the leadership of the House and Senate, so much so that some expect “blood on the floor” in the GOP primaries.
Meanwhile, Biden begins to respond point by pointaccording to a new communication strategy for his entourage, renamed “Project Trump”, as evidenced by the immediate response from the G20 in Bali with the tweet “Donald Trump destroyed America” and the video of the attack on Congress.
The most significant defection for the businessman is that of his favorite daughter, Ivanka, absent with husband Jared Kushner on a stage adorned with the American flag after they shared their winning 2016 campaign as powerful presidential advisers. “I love my father very much but I will not get involved in politics. I choose to prioritize my children and my private life. I will always love and support my father, but moving forward I will do so from outside the political arena,” she said. He said.. he explained in an interview with Fox News. It’s an affirmation of a family divided over the re-nomination, with Melania reluctant but forced to play the devoted wife.
Even many weight donors are giving it up by turning to the younger and more visible Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, following Trump’s impeachment for failing the Republican midterm red wave. The latest is Stephen Schwarzman, CEO and co-founder of the private equity fund Black stonewho publicly declared that he had ditched the billionaire in his new adventure: “America works best when its leaders are rooted in today and tomorrow, not in the present and the past. It is time for the GOP to appeal to a new generation of people,” he explained, referring to DeSantis. The leaders and I intend to support one of them in the presidential primaries.
The financier and the philanthropist have the same wavelength Ken Griffin, a major donor to the GOP, who had already dumped him on the eve of the midterms, paying $60 million, saying he was willing to support DeSantis. Attacks have also begun within the party, from former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie — in the 2024 contest — to former White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney, convinced Trump is “the only Republican who can lose” in 2024. Mulvaney predicts that if anything. At least five or six other contenders, the billionaire will get 35% of his base and win the nomination but lose the election because they will become a referendum on him, like in 2020. This is what Terry also fears. Pearl, a senior advocate for the group Women for Trump, now wishes for “new blood.”
DeSantis and the former vice president started the first skirmishes against Trump Mike PenceWhile former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley, budding Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin, Senator Ted Cruz, and even Liz Cheney, who can drain votes from the right, warm up on the sidelines.
Rupert Murdoch’s media empire is abandoning him, too: Even the beloved Fox News cut his talk, as did CNN, while MSNBC didn’t. The New York Post dismissed it at the bottom of its front page with the unofficial headline, “Florida Man Makes Announcement,” burying the news on page 26.
