The youngest son, Barron, as well as Eric’s wife, Lara, and Donald Trump Jr.’s fiancée, Kimberly Guilfoyle, were also front and center at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Ballroom announcement.

Tiffany Trump, who celebrated her nuptials at the Palm Beach resort on Saturday, also missed the festivities.

Trump spoke for just over an hour, concluding his remarks by naming Eric and Melania.

“In fact, my only son, stand up Eric, I think he’s received more subpoenas than any other man in our country,” the former president said after a lengthy rant about politicizing the Justice Department.

He added that he believed Eric Trump had a “PHD on subpoenas.”

Trump then turned his attention to his wife.

“Nor has it been a pleasure trip for our great first lady,” the Republican said. “I go home and she says ‘you look angry and upset’.”

“But she’s been a great first lady and people love her,” he added.

Trump gathered his family and the MAGA faithful in the grand ballroom at Mar-a-Lago to announce his 2024 campaign.

The former president ignored Republican critics and those who blamed him for the disappointing GOP midterm elections to assert full steam ahead of his intention to return to the Oval Office to “drain the swamp” with the country “being destroyed before our very lives.” .

“In order to make America great and glorious again, today I announce my candidacy for President of the United States,” he confirmed to loud cheers before speaking about the FBI raid, the “fake” dossier, the ” deep state” and lobbyists

‘Three years ago, when I left office, America was ready for its golden age. Our nation was at the pinnacle of power, prosperity, and prestige, rising above all rivals, vanquishing all enemies, and moving into the future with confidence and ingenuity,” Trump said.

He vowed to make his race about working people, restore American energy independence, reform elections to make sure there are “paper ballots only” and restore a “greatness agenda” with top Republicans and the media saying he should stay out of the race.

‘This will not be my campaign. This will be our campaign all together. Because the only force strong enough to defeat the massive corruption we face is you, the American people,’ he said as he celebrated the last six years of the MAGA movement, its midterm endorsements and its battle against Washington.

After months of speculation and escalating legal battles, he filed documents with the Federal Election Commission moments before beginning his speech to enthusiastic supporters at Mar-a-Lago, saying the United States “cannot take” four more years of Biden.

Speaking for just over an hour, Trump made defiant and sometimes bleak comments about the state of the country, hours after Mitch McConnell said independent voters got the “impression of a lot of the people in our party and leadership roles.” leadership that they are involved in the chaos. ‘.

The former president went on to attack Biden over record inflation, “falling asleep at global conferences” and making America “obnoxious” to the rest of the world.

He welcomed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi being ‘fired’ with Republicans poised to take a House majority.

But taking a page out of his White House successor’s 2020 playbook, Trump vowed to “unify the people” and claimed he did so during his last term.

“It happened in the previous administration,” Trump said. “And what united them was success.”

Trump called Afghanistan the “most shameful time in the history of our country” and broke with the Biden administration’s border policies that have led to an “invasion” and “spill” of fentanyl in our country.

“We are here tonight to declare that it doesn’t have to be this way, it doesn’t have to be this way, two years ago we were a great nation and soon we will be a great nation again,” he added.

“The only force strong enough to defeat the massive corruption we face is you, the American people,” he continued. “This is not about politics, this is about love for this great nation.”

In a line he’s used before, he told the audience: ‘I didn’t need this. I had an easy life.’

‘This is something I didn’t need, and many of you don’t need it either, but we have to take care of our country. We love our country, we need to save our country,’ said the former president.
