Great assistants Former President Donald Trump They are eyeing the third week of November as the best starting point for his 2024 presidential campaign, sources familiar with the matter told CNN.
Two sources said Trump’s team had discussed Nov. 14 as a possible announcement date, which would come less than a week before the midterm elections and when the former president’s youngest daughter, Tiffany, is to be married at his Mar-a-Lago estate. .
No date is locked in, this person cautioned, and Trump could move up — or push back — his desired announcement date depending on how Republicans perform in Tuesday’s elections and the availability of seats.
Trump has been advised by several key lieutenants to announce his third presidential campaign from one of the battleground states he lost to Joe Biden in 2020, according to a person familiar with the conversations, while others have encouraged him to stay in Florida. There he remains deeply popular among the state’s Republican voters.
Trump’s spokesman, Taylor Budovich, declined to comment to CNN on the impending announcement.
The former president, who has long eyed the pre-Thanksgiving midterms as the best announcement timeline for his next political move, could take advantage of what he and allies believe will be a red tide for the GOP next Tuesday. At a rally in Iowa on Thursday, Trump told an audience to “get ready” to return to the presidential campaign trail, noting that he would “very, very, probably do it again,” referring to a run for the White House.
