New entourage, old speeches. Journalists praised the start of Donald Trump’s election campaign
Former US President Donald Trump is on the campaign trail. She kicked off with events in New Hampshire and South Carolina.
Trump’s first campaign speeches are analyzed by the Western press.
According to experts, the politician changed tactics, limiting the number of participants in the meetings. So, in South Carolina, he met with two hundred supporters, although he used to arrange more crowded events. At meetings, he traditionally criticized the foreign policy of the current head of the White House, Joe Biden. He also said that he could end the conflict in Ukraine in 24 hours and warned against providing Kyiv with heavy weapons.
Thus, the New York Times noted that although the scenery of the meetings was new, the speeches had a typical Trump timbre. He presented his candidacy as a shield of the country from communism and Marxism and promised not to allow transgender people into women’s sports.
The Guardian drew attention to attacks on Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who used to be in Trump’s shadow and whom he copied but has since become his most powerful political rival in the Republican Party.
And the Washington Post believes that the charm and excitement with which Trump was greeted in the summer of 2015 has diminished. Whether someone will be able to take advantage of this is the biggest question in the Republican race, the newspaper writes.
