Democrats fire back as Trump announces presidential bid

Democrats quickly went on the offensive Tuesday night as former President Trump announced his 2024 presidential campaign, portraying him as unfit to serve following the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol riot and the former president’s promotion of unfounded claims of election fraud.


Trump’s announcement makes him the first prominent Republican to enter the 2024 race, and as he was still on stage at Mar-a-Lago, President Biden released a video on Twitter firing back as he faces the potential of a rematch with his predecessor.


“Trump failed America,” the video concludes after attacking Trump on abortion, the economy and Jan. 6.
