A former adviser to Donald Trump slammed his decision to run for President again, calling it the “best gift” he could give to the Democrats. This comes as the Republicans performed worse than expected in last week’s midterm elections, with President Biden’s party holding the Senate and the Republicans flipping the House of Representatives by a slim majority.
Gavin J Smith, now the CEO of Gavin James Public Affairs, expressed his fury at his former boss on Twitter.
He wrote: “Donald Trump running is BY FAR the best gift Republicans can hand to the Democratic Party.
“If we want any chance at winning back the White House in 2024, & if we are serious in our desire to win back strong majorities in the US Congress — we must reject Trump NOW! Full stop!”
Speaking from his home at Mar-a-Lago, Mr Trump proclaimed: “In order to make America great and glorious again, I tonight am announcing my candidacy for president of the United States.”
He promised to unify the country in the face of migrants arriving across the southern border, the “China virus” and “Islamic terrorism”.
He followed up with: “We will defeat the radical left Democrats that are trying to destroy our country from within.”

She said in a statement: “I love my father very much. This time around, I am choosing to prioritise my young children and the private life we are creating as a family.
“I do not plan to be involved in politics. While I will always love and support my father, going forward I will do so outside the political arena.
“I am grateful to have had the honour of serving the American people and I will always be proud of many of our Administration’s accomplishments.”
