'Unfinished business': Donald Trump kicks off 2024 US presidential run
Baku, January 30, AZERTAC
Former President Donald Trump kicked off his 2024 White House bid with stops in New Hampshire and South Carolina on Saturday, marking the first campaign appearances since announcing his latest run more than two months ago, according to Euronews.
"Together we will complete the unfinished business of making America great again," Trump said at an evening event in Columbia to introduce his South Carolina leadership team.
Trump and his allies hope the events in states with enormous power in selecting the nominee will offer a show of force behind the former president after a sluggish start to his campaign that left many questioning his commitment to running again.
"They said, 'He's not doing rallies, he's not campaigning. Maybe he's lost that step,'" Trump said at the New Hampshire GOP's annual meeting in Salem, his first event.
But, he told the audience of party leaders, "I'm more angry now and I'm more committed now than I ever was." In South Carolina, he further dismissed the speculation by saying that "we have huge rallies planned, bigger than ever before."
