BREAKING: Donald Trump files to run for president in 2024
Donald Trump has just filed paperwork to run for president in 2024 minutes before he is expected to address a crowd in Mar-a-Lago.
The document just filed by Donald Trump's team with the Federal Election Commission designates a principal campaign committee to take in contributions and make expenditures on his behalf. Trump’s paperwork landed with the Federal Election Committee shortly before he was expected to make his announcement at Mar-a-Lago, his Florida waterfront estate.
He has spent the days since the midterm elections fending off criticism from fellow Republicans over his ill-fated involvement in key contests, furiously lashing out at two GOP heavyweights who could complicate his path to the White House if they mount their own presidential campaigns, and fretting that he or associates could soon be indicted by federal investigators in two separate Justice Department probes.
As he entered the venue to speak tonight, a voice over the loudspeaker introduced Trump as "the next president of the United States".
