Lara Trump says it would be ‘nicer’ for Ron DeSantis to stay out of 2024 presidential election
As Donald Trump looks set to announce his much-anticipated 2024 presidential race tonight, former Vice President Mike Pence has said the United States will have “better choices going forward” than the former President.
In a recently published interview with ABC, Mr Pence said he would give “praying consideration” to launching his own White House bid in 2024.
Mr. Trump continues to amp up his supporters in anticipation of the announcement, writing on Truth Social that “Hopefully tomorrow will be one of the most important days in our country’s history!”
He is expected to make the announcement at 9 p.m. EST today at Mar-a-Lago in Florida, seeking to draw attention to disappointing midterm losses that have been seen by many as signs that his grip on the Republican Party is shrinking.
It comes as the twice-impeached president failed to stand for a nomination to testify before the House Congressional committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol.
Trump shares demon god and child sacrifice plots hours before 2024 announcement
Donald Trump appears to be openly courting conspiracy theorists as he seeks support ahead of his planned announcement for the 2024 presidential campaign.
“Let’s hope that TODAY will be one of the most important days in the history of our country!” Mr. Trump wrote on Truth Social in the early hours of Tuesday just hours after reposting an image shared by a user on the platform called “God_Bless_Trump” who posted a warning about taking on demon gods.
The image was split in two, with one side showing Mr Trump with the caption “We love you, President Trump!” God bless you!” while the other side consisted of a block of text outlining wild conspiracy theories regarding why Mr. Trump was running for president.
The image said Mr Trump was running for the highest office in the land despite having ‘everything’ because ‘maybe he couldn’t bear the thought of mass murder happening to satisfy Moloch ” – a reference to an ancient child-sacrificing god, The daily beast Noted.
“Maybe he couldn’t stand the thought of children being kidnapped, drugged and raped while world leaders/law enforcement turn a blind eye,” the image said, conveying tropes without foundation of the QAnon conspiracy theory regarding a satanic global child sex trafficking ring.
