Sri lanka News – Ex-US President Donald Trump has said he is launching a second bid for Presidency to make his country great and glorious.
“In order to make America great and glorious again, I am tonight announcing my candidacy for president of the United States,” Trump told a crowd gathered at Mar-a-Lago, his estate in Florida.
Trump is coming back as the Republican party made less than predicted gains in mid term elections despite high inflation from a Federal Reserve policy error.
Some of the candidates backed by Trump in the mid-terms had lost making the GOP less than enthusiastic according to US analysts though he still has a hard right base.
Among his top rivals for the post is likely to be Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who won with a large margin.
The US under Trump became the butt of jokes as nationalists and white supremacists rose to the fore. There was also a rise in economic nationalism with trade protectionism.
Trump was also accused by some critics of undermining NATO and emboldening Russian President Vladimir in his Greater Russia ambitions. (Colombo/Nov16/2022)
