Trump Should Announce His Candidacy Before the Midterms

Trump Should Announce His Candidacy Before the Midterms By  for American Greatness

Trump’s announcement and presence during the last two months of the midterm campaign would be a stark reminder of what was compared to what is.

Former President Donald Trump should announce his election bid for 2024 on the Tuesday after Labor Day. Here’s why.

Trump is an asset—and not, as beltway insiders like to assert—a liability on the campaign trail, especially in key Senate and gubernatorial races. Donald Trump revitalized a crumbling, corporatist Republican Party and began making it his own America First party, which reinvigorated it. He turned it into a party that welcomed the working class, Hispanics, black Americans, and Asian Americans. Now these groups are voting red, or at least leaving the Democratic Party, in staggering numbers; there’s a reason a million voters have changed parties in the last year from Democrat to Republican. It’s not because of anything Mitch McConnell or most other top Republicans have done. It’s Trump and his policies which finally reshaped the GOP.

Without Trump announcing, the face of the midterms would be McConnell and other mainstream and uninspiring GOP types. Leaving McConnell’s occasional good works on behalf of Republicans aside, in the last year he helped sell out the American people on sweeping gun control legislation and bragged about his central role in pushing Biden’s incoherent Ukraine strategy, costing American taxpayers tens of billions of dollars. His sense of what works and inspires voters is dated. A Trump announcement helps remind Americans what it was like when his America First vision was in power. For example:

  • Peace broke out all over the world. His strong but restrained foreign policy led to massive improvements in the Middle East. Problematic world leaders were too nervous to invade other countries within the United States’ sphere of influence. China was beginning to be taken on as the economic adversary it is. Most amazingly, no new wars began.
  •  When he left office, inflation was an average of 1.7 percent.
  • Gas prices were an average of $2 per gallon and our domestic energy was a net exporter.
  • Unemployment fell to 3.5 percent, the lowest since 1969.
  • The border wall and his approach on immigration were moving our porous southern border in a more controlled direction.
  • Constitutional judges were appointed to the Supreme Court that were instrumental in deciding the Dobbs case and other favorable decisions on gun rights.

Trump’s announcement and presence during the last two months of the midterm campaign would be a stark reminder of what was compared to what is and his message would be that it is time to start taking our country back now and we’re going to do it this November.
