Former President Trump did not appear to be affected by the results of Tuesday’s midterm elections so far. On Wednesday he also mentioned that he had no plans of changing his scheduled “big announcement”.
In an interview with Fox News Digital, Trump said that he had no reason to change anything regarding his upcoming announcement as so far, the elections have been a “tremendous success.”
During the final weeks of the midterms, Trump had said that he would be announcing his plans regarding a potential 2024 bid very soon. On Monday he specifically said that the “big announcement” was scheduled for Nov. 15 at Mar-a-Lago. Many are expecting Trump to announce his candidacy then.
Trump during the interview also spoke about the success his endorsed candidates have had so far. However, despite this, the GOP has widely been perceived to have underperformed as there was no “red wave” in the election so far. Still, Republicans are expected to flip the House. The Senate may be a bit harder and could potentially depend on the result of the December runoff race in Georgia.
The Associated Press had said that the Georgia race between Sen. Raphael Warnock (D) and Republican challenger Herschel Walker would be a runoff on Wednesday. This is because neither of the two candidates managed to reach the required 50 percent in order to win the elections.
