Donald Trump’s 2024 presidential bid is built on alternative facts

Trump's official 2024 presidential announcement in front of a Mar-a-Lago crowd was poorly timed and filled with alternative facts.

The worst-kept secret in U.S. politics is finally out: Donald Trump is running for president. Again.

Trump’s big reveal Tuesday night was originally timed to capitalize and take credit for the red wave that Republicans (and many other observers) expected to crash on Election Day. But, of course, the GOP itself crashed, with many of Trump’s hand-picked candidates headlining the disaster.

An ordinary politician, mindful of the party’s flop and the need to focus on winning Georgia’s Senate runoff, might have postponed a big roll-out. But when asked if he would delay it during a Fox News interview the day after the midterms, Trump scoffed: “We had tremendous success — why would anything change?”

In the land of “alternative facts,” everything is a “yuge” success. So the Mar-a-Lago freak show went on as scheduled, serving as a grim reminder for Republicans yearning to crawl out of the abyss of his shadow: It’s not simply that Trump is the leader and face of the GOP (which he still is) but that the Republican Party has become just another property in the former president’s branding empire.
