Donald Trump aides filed paperwork for a 2024 presidential bid on Tuesday as supporters gathered at his gilt-edged Florida resort where he was expected to announce a new White House bid that would return his false claims of election fraud to the center of US politics.

Bradley Crate, who has previously worked for Trump political organizations, filed paperwork with the US Federal Election Commission setting up a committee called “Donald J. Trump for President 2024.”

Trump’s expected announcement late on Tuesday follows a disappointing showing in last week’s midterm congressional elections that many Republicans blame on him.
