Former President Trump is expected to make a “special announcement” from Mar-a-Lago during prime time on Tuesday at 9 pm EST which many believe will be his official declaration that he is running for the presidency in 2024.

The development comes as Fox News host Brian Kilmeade advised Trump that he should wait and “be quiet” to help out Herschel Walker in Georgia. He also slammed the former president for his attacks against Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, calling them “insane.”
Trump alluded to his announcement during a rally on Monday. The Daily Mail is claiming that his aides advised him to put off the announcement until after the Georgia senate seat runoff pitting Walker against incumbent Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock. It looks like he may be ignoring that advice.
The runoff in Georgia will take place on December 6 which could decide whether Republicans control the Senate or not.
“With President Trump, I would think the first thing, an indication I’d like to see if he was serious about being savvy and recalibrating is if he puts off his announcement Monday,” Kilmeade put out there on “The Story” with host Martha MacCallum Thursday.
“If he puts off his announcement Monday, it’s putting team first,” he continued. “If he takes his announcement Monday, that’ll show that it’s so Trump-centric, it’s gonna be playing to the DeSantis or broad scope – big jungle primary.”
There'll be a backlash to the backlash.
Especially if President Trump evinces admirable restraint and makes the Georgia runoff about anything other than the 2020 or 2024 presidential elections, and instead champions the policies of which he should justly be very proud. https://t.co/YDYCYmmNji

MacCallum then addressed the runoff in Georgia.
“His supporters would like to see him get all behind Herschel Walker right now in the most helpful way possible,” she pointed out.
“It might be being quiet because in Georgia, he’s not that popular,” Kilmeade said.
“It might be being quiet and also to sort of stop the bows and arrows that he’s shooting at DeSantis,” MacCallum replied.
“Right, which is insane,” Kilmeade charged. “I think that a lot of people are having difficulty when you see them fighting with each other that are on the right.”

“I know there’s a temptation to start talking about 2024 — no, no, no, no, no,” McEnany commented on “Outnumbered” Wednesday, adding that “2022 is not over. Every Republican energy needs to go to grinding the Biden agenda to a halt, and that could go straight through the state of Georgia.”
When McEnany was asked whether Trump should go to Georgia, she responded, “I think we’ve got to make strategic calculations. Gov. DeSantis, I think he should be welcome to the state, given what happened last night. You’ve got to look at the realities on the ground.”
Trump is getting slammed by both Democrats and Republicans just before he preps to make his announcement. A number of conservatives are blaming him for the midterm election results and the media is sowing division among Republicans hoping to stop the former president from running.
“Never forget. Trump picked sure losers in winnable races,” Gregg Nunziata, who is a former member of Florida Senator Marco Rubio’s team in the Senate, stated.
“He picked weak candidates in otherwise slam dunk races requiring the party to spend tons of money we’d rather spend elsewhere,” he added. “And speaking of money, he hoovered up tens of millions and barely spent a dime to help Rs.”

Of, and speaking of money, he hoovered up tens of millions and barely spent a dime to help Rs.

“I mean, we had a historic opportunity and Trump’s recruitment of unelectable candidates blew it for us,” Scott Reed, who is a veteran Republican strategist, carped according to the Seattle Times. “Trump’s now lost three elections in a row for the Republican Party and it’s time to snap out of this foolishness.”
Fox News’ White House correspondent, Jacqui Heinrich, bluntly tweeted, “GOP source tells me ‘if it wasn’t clear before it should be now. We have a Trump problem.'”

DeSantis is skyrocketing in popularity after Florida went deep red in the midterms. Many conservatives are now flocking to him and calling for him to run for the presidency in 2024, seeing him as more electable than the former president. Trump has taken a number of shots across the bow because of that.
Trump’s former chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney, is claiming DeSantis is in a far better position after the midterms than Trump is currently.
“Between being Donald Trump and Ron DeSantis tonight, you want to be Ron DeSantis,” Mulvaney remarked Tuesday, according to the Daily Mail. “DeSantis wins tonight and Trump is not doing very well.” DeSantis won by nearly 20 points.
The former president went on the defensive Thursday night, slamming Fox News, The Wall Street Journal, and the New York Post for voicing support for DeSantis after his landslide victory on Tuesday. His PAC sent out a statement that asserted the three media outlets are “all in for Governor Ron DeSanctimonious” whom he called “an average REPUBLICAN Governor with great Public Relations.”

Trump alluded to the fact that DeSantis’ win was helped by the fact that he didn’t have to lock down Florida during the pandemic because of the “SUNSHINE, where people from badly run States up North would go no matter who the Governor was, just like I did!”
“Ron came to me in desperate shape in 2017 – he was politically dead, losing in a landslide to a very good Agriculture Commissioner, Adam Putnam, who was loaded up with cash and great poll numbers,” Trump commented. “Ron had low approval, bad polls, and no money, but he said that if I would Endorse him, he could win.”
