Former U.S. President Donald Trump has announced his intention to run for president in 2024.

“In order to make America great and glorious again, I am tonight announcing my candidacy for the president of the United States,” Mr Trump announced to a delighted crowd gathered at Mar-a-Lago, Florida.

Some political analysts have tagged his early announcement to run for the presidency as a calculated move to evade investigation and shield him from legal brawls.

Throwing a jibe at President Joe Biden’s administration, Mr Trump asserted the U.S. was in a horrible state and needed his leadership to make things right.

“Our country is in a horrible state. We’re in grave trouble. This is not a test for a politician or a conventional candidate. It is a test for a great movement that embodies the courage, confidence and the spirit of the American people,” Mr Trump said. “This will not be my campaign. This will be our campaign altogether.”
