2024 Donald Trump presidential campaign

Fight.PNG
Trump on the campaign trail, 2024.

In a November 2023 CNN Poll: Trump was narrowly leading Biden in hypothetical rematch.[1]

In November 2023, the Minnesota Supreme Court blocked a bid to remove Trump from the primary ballot in a 14th Amendment challenge.[2]

A November 2023 poll showed: voters trust Trump over Biden on Ukraine, Israel and China.[3]

On the Israel "Palestinian" Gaza regime Hamas war Swords of Iron, Trump said in November 2023, "Sometimes you have to let things play out" - his stand against a ceasefire.[4]

File:Trump backs Israeli Operation in Gaza: "finish the problem." (Mar 5 2024)

On Mar 5, 2024, Super Tuesday, Trump expressed his full support for Israel's military campaign in Gaza: 'Finish the problem'.[5][6]

On March 25, 2024, Trump said: Only a fool would have not acted like Israel after Oct. 7.[7] And that "People that were in other administrations with Biden saw him as weak, ineffective, Hamas would have never done that attack if I were there."

Trump's November 2023 video focused on the October 7 massacre:

Former US President Donald Trump on Saturday released a new campaign video.

The video ad builds on the thousands of people, including 31 Americans, killed by Hamas in Israel since October 7, and slams US President Joe Biden's release of billions of dollars in funds to Iran.

The campaign video said, "Trump played hardball with Iran. Destroyed ISIS. Kept the Middle East at peace. Kept us out of endless wars with strength."[8]

On November 10, 2023, Elise Stefanik filed an ethics complaint against corrupt Trump fraud trial judge Arthur Engoron.

Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.) filed a judicial ethics complaint Friday against the New York judge overseeing former President Trump’s civil fraud trial, claiming the judge has shown “inappropriate bias and judicial intemperance” toward the former president and calling on him to resign.

Judge Arthur Engoron has displayed a “clear judicial bias” against Trump and broken “several rules” in the state’s judicial conduct code, Stefanik wrote in a letter to the New York State Commission on Judicial Conduct.[9]

In November 2023, Trump told Argentina's President-elect Javier Milei he plans to visit Buenos Aires.

Former President Donald Trump has told Argentina’s President-elect Javier Milei that he plans to travel to the South American country so the two can meet.[10]

In November 2023, a "representative of Black Lives Matter" (BLM), activist Mark Fisher, endorsed Donald Trump and drew loud applause from supporters.[11]

A December 2023 poll found that young voters prefer Trump to handle the Israel-Hamas war.[12]

In a December 9, 2023 published WSJ poll: Trump takes 2024 lead as Biden approval hits new low. "WSJ Poll Finds Unhappiness with Biden’s performance is pervasive, with economic pessimism weighing him down."[13] Trump's lead over Biden grows when independent candidates are included.[14]

Another poll showed: "Nikki Haley Absolutely Wrecks Biden By Whopping 17 points — And Trump Tops Biden By 4."[15]

On December 14, 2023, the Michigan Supreme Court rejected Democrat challenges to Trump’s spot on 2024 primary ballot. Saying "it won’t stop former President Donald Trump from appearing on the state’s 2024 Republican primary ballot, turning aside challenges from critics who argue that his role in the 2021 attack on the U.S. Capitol disqualifies him."[16]

On December 17, 2023, Fox News reported that: "Trump’s lead in GOP primary widens."[17] "Trump's support stands at 69% in the primary race. That's up 7 points since November and fully 26 points since February."

Meantime, Trump gained a Florida endorsement from Marco Rubio.

Donald Trump has a special interest in embarrassing Ron DeSantis in his home state of Florida, and on the eve of the Iowa caucuses he landed one more prize: the endorsement of Sen. Marco Rubio. Rubio, who ran against Trump in 2016 and lost badly to him in the state's GOP primary, follows Sen. Rick Scott, who backed Trump in early November. Trump had been annoyed that it took Rubio this long, people close to him say, but he'll take the win. The former president, whose legal residence is in Palm Beach, also has the bulk of Florida's U.S. House members on his side[18]

Jan 2024: Trump beating Biden in Georgia in early 2024 poll.

President Biden trails former President Trump by eight percentage points in a hypothetical rematch in Georgia, according to an Atlanta Journal-Constitution poll of registered voters out Tuesday.

Why it matters: The poll offers an early warning sign for Biden, who flipped Georgia blue in 2020 for the first time in nearly three decades.[19]

In his victory speech in Iowa caucuses, Jan 16, 2024, Trump pledged to solve ‘horrible’ situation in Israel quickly if elected. Claiming, Israel would not have been attacked on Oct. 7 if he was still president.[20]

WaPo claimed (19 Jan 2024), that "Trump-supportive Republicans have harder-line views on immigration."

Unlike non-Trump Republicans, most of his supporters favor deportation and less legal immigration, a poll finds.[21]

Just ahead of the NH primary, Trump leads by wide margin in Post-Monmouth poll finds.

Haley nearly doubles her support from November, but trails among the Republican Party’s base voters.

[22]

A Jan 29, 2024 poll in Michigan showed: 'Biden vs. Trump, Michigan. Trump has a 3.1% lead based on 21 polls.' Per The Hill titling its piece: 'Michigan GOP turmoil threatens effort to flip state for Trump.'[23]

A Feb 4 2024 published NBC Poll showed Trump ahead of Biden with 20 points on handling economy.[24]

A Feb 27, 2024, poll showed:[25] 'Wisconsin 2024 Poll: Trump 45%, Biden 42%'.

Mar 2024. MSNBC anchor dismissed own network's polling, suggesting enthusiasm for Biden may be 'bigger than we think. [26]

As of two days after his SOTU address, Biden is still behind Trumpn in battleground States, but Trump's playing catch-up on the Ground.[27] "Biden and Democrats have a big cash advantage over Republicans, and have funneled far more to state parties to build campaign infrastructure."

On Mar 11, 2024, "Biden suddenly leads Donald Trump in multiple polls."[28]

But according to CBS reported poll on Mar 12, "Trump leads Biden narrowly in Georgia."[29]

And reported on Fox News Mar 14 about Michigan. "Trump holds slight edge over Biden in crucial battleground state: poll."[30]

Colorado, Maine rulings

On December 20, 2023, Four --out of seven-- state Supreme Court judges in Colorado illegally banned Trump from the 2024 ballot "without due process."[31] Explained in the Wall Street Journal: "Even if the U.S. Supreme Court overturns the ruling, as it probably will, the Colorado decision will confirm for millions of Americans that Mr. Trump’s opponents will do everything possible to deny them their democratic choice."[31]

Even Chris Christie, a Trump foe, blasted the Colorado ballot decision.

Chris Christie said voters - not the courts - should decide if Donald Trump deserves to be reelected in 2024.[32]

Bill Barr, another harsh Trump critic said: it is "legally wrong," will "backfire."[33]

Alan Dershowitz called the ruling "Anti-Democratic, Unconstitutional, Absurd."[34] Saying: "In the 60 years I’ve been practicing and teaching law, I’ve never seen a decision that’s so anti-democratic and so unconstitutional."

Liberal media admitted that Democrat judges just bungled this: "Colorado hands Trump a political gift by barring him from the ballot." [35]

Days later, Maine Democrat secretary of state Shenna Bellows followed suit in unilaterally and illegally banning Trump from the 2024 election in that state.[36]

On January 2, 2024, Trump appealed the Maine 14th Amendment election disqualification to the state Superior Court.[37]

Supreme Court ruling

On Mar 4, 2024, the Supreme Court ruled, Trump stays on ballot.[38][39]

Assassination "joke"

In Jan 2024, a hot mic catches Journos joking about Trump being assassinated,[40] as Trump was in Washington for federal court appearance.[41]

Assassination attempt

Donald Trump raises his fist immediately after a failed assassination attempt.[42]

In April 2024 Democrats introduced a bill in Congress to remove Secret Service protection from President Donald Trump.[43] The bill's chief sponsor was Rep. Bennie Thompson who chaired the J6 witch hunt.

To everyone's surprise, Biden refused to step aside after a disastrous debate performance with President Trump on June 27, 2024. Biden was roundly criticized by members of his own party and the liberal media, demanding Biden's resignation.[44] Donors began to bail, and Democrat members of Congress feared being dragged down with him. Biden dug in, as an anxious party awaited his next move.

On July 5, 2024 Newsweek reported Supreme Court Just Gave Joe Biden 'a Powerful Tool' [45] citing 'legal analyst' Glenn Kirschner who said that Biden possesses "powers" relating to presidential immunity and noted that "he's gonna have to use them to save democracy." The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation posted an analysis on the SCOTUS presidential immunity ruling asking, Did the Supreme Court really just give U.S. presidents the power to assassinate opponents?[46]

On July 8, just five days before the shooting Biden told donors in a conference call, "We’re done talking about the debate, it’s time to put Trump in a bullseye."[47][48][49][50][51][52] Two days after the failed attempt Donald Trump was re-nominated as the official GOP candidate;[53] the next day Biden announced he may drop out of the race.[54]

Running mates?

In January 2024, Trump supporters suggested DeSantis, Ramaswamy, Haley as running mates.[55]

Iowa Caucuses

Trump won, easily.[56] DeSantis edged out Haley. Ramaswamy dropped out.

Surprising NY poll

A poll conducted in May 2024: Trump wins over independents in deep blue NY, trails Biden by mere single digits in historic flip.[59]

Ukraine peace plan

President Trump has repeatedly stated that a top priority in his new administration is to bring about a quick resolution to the NATO conflict in Ukraine. A proposal drawn up by retired Lt Gen Keith Kellogg, who served briefly as National Security Advisor in the First Trump Administration and Fred Fleitz, who served as National Security Council chief of staff from 2017-2021. The plan would cut Ukraine aid if the Kiev regime continues to refuse negotiations with Russia. Conversely, a refusal by Russia to negotiate would lead to increased support for Ukraine.[60]
