TookThe midterm elections were expected to open a way for him to launch his 2024 presidential bid. Instead, election night was disappointing for Donald Trump, who sees his main Republican rival excited by the results.
The former president, who was personally involved during the campaign, dreamed up a grand victory for his foal before promising his “very big announcement” next week – his potential presidential candidacy.
But the declared “red wave” did not break, although Republicans did leave to snatch — from a small head — a majority in the House of Representatives. Control of the Senate remains very uncertain.
“If in some ways yesterday’s election was disappointing from my personal point of view, it was a huge victory,” Donald Trump said on his Truth Social Network on Wednesday.
Still, the most spectacular victory on the conservative side was that of Ron DeSantis, the victoriously re-elected governor of Florida. However, it is the strongest possible opponent of Donald Trump in the race for the Republican nomination for 2024.
His big win cemented his rising star status. Already, a column published Wednesday morning by Fox News crowned him the “new leader of the Republican Party.”
