As the repercussions from the 2022 midterm elections unfolds, former President Donald Trump indicated on Monday via a tweet on his Truth Social platform that something significant may occur on Tuesday. Some feel it may be tied to his 2024 intentions.
His Monday message followed a series of increasingly strong indications given over the previous few months regarding a potential third run for the White House.
Trump stated on November 7 that he will make a major campaign statement one week after Election Day, as many had expected he would following the midterms.
“I’m going to be making a very big announcement on Tuesday, Nov. 15,” the former president said during an Ohio rally, according to Politico. It was claimed that he will make the announcement at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida.
The 45th president appeared to indicate late Monday morning that he is preparing to make an important announcement, though he did not provide specifics.
“Hopefully, tomorrow will turn out to be one of the most important days in the history of our Country!” the former president wrote.
The Washington Examiner claimed Thursday that Trump will make his announcement around 9 p.m. EDT, citing a “recent advisory.”
According to CBS News, the former president has briefed many of his closest colleagues on his plans for Tuesday’s statement, which coincidentally falls on the same day that House Republicans may vote on their leadership.
One unidentified senior advisor allegedly informed the publication that despite opposition over the fact that the midterm election results are not yet final, Trump believed that reneging on his prior pledge would demonstrate weakness.
CBS News also reported a person close to Trump as claiming he was enraged by the defeats suffered by several of his top backed Republican candidates.
Last week, though, the former president refuted this claim in a Truth Social post.
“For those many people that are being fed the fake narrative from the corrupt media that I am Angry about the Midterms, don’t believe it,” Trump posted Thursday. “I am not at all angry, did a great job (I wasn’t the one running!), and am very busy looking into the future. Remember, I am a ‘Stable Genius.’”

He has also generated debates about the intentions of his recent political attacks on Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida, who easily won re-election on Tuesday and is thought to be a top contender for the 2024 GOP presidential nomination.
One notable alternative take on what could happen with Trump, at least according to Democratic Rep. Jamie Raskin of Maryland, is that Republican lawmakers could vote him in as the next House speaker. CONTINUE READING…
