Trump mocked the “boring” Low-Energy 2024 announcement
Former President Donald Trump’s official 2024 presidential bid was met with a poor reception from many Twitter users on Tuesday, with some saying they found the announcement “dull” compared to the energy he usually gives during his rallies.
Trump made the long-awaited announcement at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Fla., saying he would launch his third presidential campaign to target “the most corrupt forces and entrenched interests imaginable.” .
“America’s comeback begins now,” Trump told his supporters.
The phrase “#TrumpAnnouncement” became a trending topic on Twitter within an hour of its formal offering, with several users pointing out that Trump’s address didn’t have the same animation the former president had shown at previous events.
“We have watched Trump at many of his rallies with more visible energy and excitement than we do at Mar-a-Lago,” he wrote Kathryn WatsonWhite House reporter for ABC News.
Jon Favreauformer advisor to former President Barack Obama and host of the podcast Pod Save Americasaid, “Trump has never been able to combine the energy of his rallies with the message discipline of his terribly written speeches, which he obviously hates.”
Senior Correspondent for Vox, Zach Beauchampadding that the former president “doesn’t even have the energy to demagogue well”.
Other users criticized Trump’s low energy, some like it Daily Mail columnist Megan McCainwho asks on Twitter, “Why is this so boring…?”

“Voice, rhythm of behavior, all low energy as hell,” Rao tweeted.
Some users expressed support for Trump’s behavior during the speech, including Jack Posobiecsenior editor of the conservative news site Human Events.
“When Trump is loud they call him angry, when Trump is quiet they call him tired,” Posobiec tweeted. “Yawn, you’re not interesting.”
Some conservative congressmen also expressed enthusiasm for Trump’s official bid, including Ohio’s elected representative Max Muellerwho won his district in last week’s midterm elections and was supported by the former president.
