Former United States President Donald Trump has officially announced he is running for office for the third time.
Donald Trump has officially announced he is running for president.
The former United States President - who previously held office from 2017 to 2021 - has confirmed his 2024 for bid for the White House and promised to "fight like no one has ever fought before".
Speaking at his Mar-a-Lago estate on Tuesday night (15.11.22), he said: "In order to make America great and glorious again, I am tonight announcing my candidacy for president of the United States."
The 76-year-old businessman turned politician claimed he "kept his promises" in office, and insisted the US had experience "pain, hardship, anxiety and despair" under current president Joe Biden's leadership.
He added: "Two years ago we were a great nation and soon we will be a great nation again."
His paperwork to confirm his candidacy - which comes after some of his aides and allies urged him to wait until after the midterm election results - was filed with the Federal Election Committee just before his speech.
This marks Trump's third run for the presidency, after winning in 2016 and then losing to Biden four years later.
He is the only president to be impeached twice, with the first coming in 2019 after the House of Representatives impeached him over his dealings with Ukraine.
The following year, he was acquitted by the Senate, and then in January 2021 he was impeached again and charged with "incitement of insurrection" over the Capitol riot.
Trump - who is also the first president to be acquitted twice - had insisted without evidence that the 2020 election was stolen from him, and his followers then stormed the Capitol building in an attempt to stop Congress from certifying the results in Biden's favour.
Trump - who lost by more than seven million votes and hasn't been able to provide evidence of widespread fraud - has continued to claim he won the 2020 election.
