Bloomberg: Trump has collected enough votes to go for a rematch in the most expensive election in US history

Former US President Donald Trump has collected enough delegate votes to run for the nomination in the upcoming US presidential election, Bloomberg writes. At the same time, according to the author of the article, this election will be the most expensive in recent US history, as the candidates have long been in the public spotlight – with both Trump and Joe Biden having low ratings.

Donald Trump has secured enough delegate votes to clinch the Republican Party’s nomination for the US presidential nomination, Bloomberg writes. The publication notes that this is a “stunning political comeback fuelled by resentment and revenge” and the upcoming election campaign could be the longest and most expensive in recent memory.

Such a victory gives Trump full leeway to consolidate the Republican Party’s political activity and to focus his full attention on a rematch with President Joe Biden.

More than a dozen Republicans were running against Trump. However, the criminal charges only united voters around Trump while his rivals failed. Therefore, the publication notes that Trump’s team was able to turn his legal troubles, which would have ended the career of any other politician, into his battle cry, encouraging voters who believed his claims of political persecution.

The 2024 election is expected to be one of the most expensive in U.S. history. It is the first time candidates have been in the public spotlight for so long and have such low approval ratings. So they will have to spend billions of dollars to convince voters.
