The 2024 presidential campaign of Donald Trump was announced by Donald Trump, the 45th president of the United States from 2017 to 2021. He announced his candidacy for the 2024 presidential election on November 15, 2022.[5]

Trump is currently seeking the nomination for the Republican primaries. If he is elected, he will become the second president after Grover Cleveland to serve two non-consecutive presidential terms.

Background[change | change source]

After Joe Biden won the 2020 United States presidential election, Trump became the first incumbent president since the 1992 presidential election to lose his reelection bid. Trump also became the first president since George H. W. Bush to serve one presidential term.

After he lost the 2020 election, Trump refused to concede to Biden and accept his loss. He later made widespread false claims of election and voter fraud, and saying it was rigged and stolen from him, despite no evidence to support his claims.

Trump later made many attempts to overturn the election results, to prevent Biden's presidential transition and block the certification of his election victory, which later resulted in the attack on the United States Capitol, which left five people dead and later resulted in his second impeachment, becoming the first U.S. president to be impeached twice.

Trump left office on January 20, 2021, and became the first outgoing president since 1869, who did not attend his successor's inauguration.

On November 15, 2022, he announced his candidacy for 2024 presidential election.[6][7][8][9]

This also officially makes Trump's fourth presidential campaign, as he ran for president in 2000, 2016, 2020, and is running again in 2024.

This later caused wide speculation that both Trump and Biden may face a potential rematch in the 2024 election. If Trump and Biden are renominated, this would be the first presidential rematch since the 1956 presidential election.

As of 2023, there are multiple factors working against Trump such as, the hearings of the January 6 Committee, FBI search of Mar-a-Lago, Raffensperger phone call, Stormy Daniels scandal, and his indictment by the New York grand jury.
