Former President Donald Trump announced his run for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination in a speech at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida. His remarks came a week after the 2022 midterms, which saw Republicans retake control of the House of Representatives with a slim majority. During his speech, Mr. Trump talked about his campaign platform, with a heavy emphasis on border security and law enforcement, specifically calling for the death penalty to be levied against convicted drug dealers as it is in some Asian nations like Singapore. He was joined at the announcement by his family, some of whom he recognized during the speech. Following his remarks, he greeted many of those in attendance.
