An ‘angry’ Donald Trump begins his 2024 campaign in front of a few hundred people | Abroad

Former US President Donald Trump kicked off his campaign for the 2024 US presidential election on Saturday, appearing in two US states. In New Hampshire and South Carolina, he fielded his campaign teams. Trump said he was angrier and more committed than ever.

The 76-year-old Trump once again addressed the ‘stolen’ 2020 presidential election in his campaign speech and stressed that a Russian invasion of Ukraine would never have happened under his leadership. He also told his fans that the 2024 election is “our only chance to save this country.” Trump spoke to an audience of about 200 people, in stark contrast to the huge gatherings of thousands of audiences he was used to during his first candidacy.

Notable absences from South Carolina included five Republican state representatives and US Senator Tim Scott, who is seen as a potential Republican presidential candidate.

New Hampshire and South Carolina are among the states that started early Republican primaries. Trump had already announced his candidacy in November. To date, no Republican contender has emerged.

However, a number of Republicans would have ambitions to do so, including Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, Trump’s former Vice President Mike Pence and his former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. If he does, DeSantis could become Trump’s closest challenger, according to polls.

In one of his speeches, Trump criticized members of the Republican Party who did not show their loyalty to him. According to him, they are “more dangerous than the Democrats.”
