Trump anticipates “a big announcement” on November 15 at Mar-a-Lago

Former President Donald Trump said Monday that he will make “a big announcement” at Mar-a-Lago on Nov. 15.

“I am going to make a big announcement on Tuesday, November 15 at Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida,” said the former president, before emphasizing the importance of voting in the midterm elections on November 8.

CNN had previously reported that Trump was considering the week of November 14 to announce his candidacy for president.

Last week, sources familiar with the matter told CNN that top Trump aides were touting the third week of November as an ideal time to launch his 2024 presidential campaign, provided Republicans do well in the midterms. .

Two sources noted that the Trump team has specifically discussed Nov. 14 as a possible announcement date, which would be in the midst of a long-scheduled overseas trip to Asia by President Joe Biden. Trump was also unlikely to make the announcement before Monday, even if the GOP exceeds expectations on election night, to avoid overshadowing his daughter Tiffany’s Nov. 12 wedding at Mar-a-Lago and because he doesn’t want to share a news cycle with the results of the midterm elections, the sources said.
