Donald Trump officially enters 2024 presidential race

Donald Trump announced his 2024 US presidential bid after filing White House candidacy papers.

Minutes before his appearance at an event announcing his candidacy, Trump’s campaign filed federal paperwork.

"America's comeback starts right now," the 76-year-old former president told his supporters.

With his announcement Trump is the first major contender from either party to formally declare.

Candidates endorsed by Trump floundered in key races in last week’s mid-term elections.
