Former US President Donald Trump said he would seek another term for the White House in 2024.

Iran PressAmerica: "I am tonight announcing my candidacy for president of the United States," the 76-year-old former president said in a speech at his Florida private club on Tuesday night.

"We are a nation in decline. We are a failing nation for millions of Americans," Trump said, adding, "I will ensure that Joe Biden does not receive four more years."

He also filed his official 2024 paperwork with the US election authority, declaring himself a presidential candidate.

If he is elected again, he will become only the second president to retake the White House after having been ousted, a feat achieved by Grover Cleveland in 1892 after he had lost the presidency to Benjamin Harrison in 1888. A victory would make Trump the 45th and the 47th president.

As president, Trump faced criticism over several of his actions, especially his management of the worst public health crisis in nearly a century – the COVID-19 pandemic.
