“Former President Donald Trump on Tuesday launched his third [sic] campaign for the White House just one week after a disappointing midterm showing for Republicans, forcing the party to again decide whether to embrace a candidate whose refusal to accept defeat in 2020 sparked an insurrection and pushed American democracy to the brink. ‘In order to make America great and glorious again, I am tonight announcing my candidacy for president of the United States,’ Trump said before an audience of several hundred supporters in a chandeliered ballroom at his Mar-a-Lago club, where he stood flanked by American flags and banners bearing his ‘Make America Great Again’ slogan.” [editor’s note: Fourth campaign, not third. He sought the 2000 Reform Party nomination but dropped out when it became clear he was going to lose to Pat Buchanan (and went to work trying to become Buchanan 2.0) – TLK] (11/16/22)
