Donald Trump is back. With his party on the verge of capturing the House of Representatives in the ongoing midterm elections, Trump today announced his next presidential candidacy for 2024.
What Trump seeks has only happened once before in US history, when Grover Cleveland was elected president for two non-consecutive terms (22nd and 24th President).
Ironically, Donald Trump, who has relentlessly attacked the integrity of US voting since his 2020 election defeat, now wants to shoulder the whole burden of making "America better".
What legal problems can Trump face? Even though Trump's party appears to be capable of securing house seats, it was unable to acquire the senate seats and did not bring the 'red wave' as expected, despite Trump backing and campaigning for several of the senates.

Here is the legal cloud that covers him, ever since he announced his presidency:
Mar-a-Lago documents: The US Justice Department is investigating whether records from the Trump White House were mishandled when they were delivered to his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida after he left office. A federal grand jury in Washington has been formed, and potential witnesses to Trump's handling of the documents have been examined.
It will be interesting to see what could come next for Trump. Will it be a Biden vs Trump Presidential election in 2024?
