It’s been alleged that Donald Trump will soon be ready to announce his Presidential run for 2024 amid increased rallying for the US mid-terms.
Trump was in attendance at a mid-term rally in Philadelphia to show support for fellow Republican candidates Doug Mastriano and Dr Mehmet Oz where he alluded to a big announcement he’s about to make.
‘Everybody, I promise you, in the very next, very ,very ,very short period of time, you’re going to be so happy.”
Trump also made reference to Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, saying that he was ahead in the opinion polls and jokingly called him “Ron DeSanctimonious”.
“There it is, Trump 71 per cent, Ron DeSanctimonious at 10 per cent.”
He reiterated to the crowd that no announcement would be made with the mid-terms in full swing because he wants the focus to be on current Republican candidates.
“One of the reasons I don’t want to do that right now — because I’d like to do it — but you know what, I really mean this. I want to have the focus tonight be your Dr. Oz and Doug Mastriano,” he said.
“Very, very soon. You’re gonna be surprised at how soon, but first, we have to win a historic victory for Republicans in November.”

Earlier in the year, he was more straightforward with his plans, saying at the American Freedom Tour in Fort Lauderdale that he and the Republican party would “take back our country”.
“You had a president that always put America first. I will be back and we will be better and stronger than ever before.”
Meanwhile, the Democrats are also amping up their rallying efforts with former President Barack Obama hitting the campaign trail.
Obama was in Philadelphia where he told the crowd about the importance of voting in the mid-terms.
“A lot of folks don’t pay a ton of attention to politics the way they do in a presidential year. Maybe they don’t think Congress matters as much. Maybe they don’t think their vote will matter,” he said.
“Democracy itself is on the ballot. The stakes are high.”
The kind of slash and burn politics that we’re seeing right now, that doesn’t have to be who we are. We can be better – and your vote tomorrow will help us get there. pic.twitter.com/e8LclYphIK

US President Joe Biden has also been campaigning and has asked Americans to head out and vote saying, “It’s a choice” but that it’s “a choice between two vastly different versions of America”.
