He will make a “very big announcement” next Tuesday, Trump said at an election rally on Monday. In the elections this Tuesday, Trump’s Republicans have the best chance of at least partially wresting control of Congress from President Joe Biden’s Democrats.

Before Trump’s final rally for the midterms (“midterms”), there had been speculation that he could use this opportunity to announce his candidacy for the presidency in the 2024 election. This didn’t happen when they performed in Dayton, Ohio. But with his announcement of a “very big announcement” on September 15 at his Mar-a-Lago, Florida estate, Trump deliberately increased the buzz surrounding his expected re-election.

7:50 a.m .: Things are not looking good for Biden’s Democrats, they are threatened with losing their narrow majority in the US Parliament.

Head-to-head races for several seats are expected in the Senate, which is currently only just controlled by the Democrats.
