‘To make America great and glorious again, I am announcing my candidacy for President of the United States today,’ he said of the FBI raid, ‘fake’ dossiers, the ‘deep state’ and lobbyists.
‘When I left office three years ago, the United States was poised for its golden age. Our nation was at the pinnacle of power, prosperity and prestige – towering over all rivals, vanquishing all enemies and heading into a confident, resourceful future,’ Trump said.

Trump said Afghanistan was the most ’embarrassing moment’ in our nation’s history and ripped the Biden administration’s border policies that led to the ‘invasion’ and ‘pouring’ of fentanyl into our country.
‘We are declaring here tonight that it doesn’t have to be this way – it doesn’t have to be this way – we were a great nation two years ago and soon we will be a great nation again,’ he added.
“The only force strong enough to defeat rampant corruption is you, the American people,” he added. ‘It’s not about politics, it’s about love for this great nation’.
In a line he has used before, he told the audience: ‘I didn’t need it. I had an easy life’.
‘It’s something I didn’t need, and neither do many of you, but we have to take care of our country. We love our country, we have to save our country,’ said the former president.
