Though rumors swirled throughout the day Monday that Donald Trump would announce a 2024 presidential run at his Ohio rally — and during parts of his rally it sounded like he would — Trump ended the rally by highlighting the terrible state of the economy, civil liberties, military readiness, education, and more in the United States, then imploring voters across the country to get out to the polls Tuesday and vote for Republican candidates.

On Monday morning, Daily Caller congressional correspondent Henry Rodgers tweeted that there was a 50/50 chance that Trump would announce a 2024 run Monday night. When it was revealed that Donald Trump, Jr., Kimberly Guilfoyle, Eric & Lara Trump, and Ivanka Trump would be in attendance, those rumors reached a fever pitch.
Trump’s tone throughout the rally was collegial and that of a team player, and he put a lot of the focus on Ohio and JD Vance, and other battleground states that will be critical for the GOP’s hopes of gaining control of Congress.
In closing, Trump said:
But not to detract from tomorrow’s very important, even critical, election, and I would say in the strongest way, it’s a country-saving election, specifically including the election of all of the people that I’m going to name, I’m going to be making a very big announcement on Tuesday, November 15th, at Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida.
As the somber music continued to play, Trump read the long list of GOP gubernatorial, Senate, and House of Representatives candidates in these battleground states and urged everyone to vote.
While many pollsters are predicting that the GOP will have a great day Tuesday, if not a “red tsunami,” as always, that depends on which party gets their voters to the polls. Two more years of Biden’s “accomplishments” would be devastating for America, so be sure to get out and vote.
