Far-left network MSNBC did not carry former President Donald Trump’s 2024 campaign announcement speech live.
Trump spoke at 9 pm on November 15 from Mar-a-Lago.
Fox News aired most of the speech, but also cut away for analysis from Sean Hannity, Mike Huckabee, Pete Hegseth, Leo Terrell, and others.
“CNN also carried Trump’s remarks live but cut away after about 20 minutes to offer analysis from a political panel and fact-checks of the various claims Trump made during his speech on issues ranging from energy to the results of the midterm elections,” The Hill reports.
“MSNBC did not carry Trump’s remarks live at all, instead opting to host a number of leading journalists to talk about the former president’s expected announcement,” the report continued.
On their website, MSNBC ran with the headline, “Trump’s secret 2024 weapon? He’s ready to burn it all down.”
The opinion piece, disguised as news, stated, “Trump is already fomenting a bitter civil war in the Senate GOP caucus and may demand a Red Wedding in the House GOP caucus as well. This evening (with multiple possible indictments pending) he makes his presidential restoration campaign official.”
“And there is not much the GOP can do about it. Republicans now know that they cannot win with Trump; but they also know that if he torches everything in sight, they can’t win without him either,” MSNBC continued. “They have trapped themselves in a political prison of their own making.”
During his speech, Trump vowed to “Make America Great Again.”

“Two years ago, when I left office, the United States stood ready for its golden age,” he said, before boasting of his accomplishments in the White House. “The world was at peace, America was prospering, and our country was on track for an amazing future— because I made big promises to the American people and, unlike other Presidents, I kept my promises.”
Trump said the Biden administration has turned the US into a “failing nation.”
“It doesn’t have to be this way,” Trump said.
“In order to make America great and glorious again, tonight I am announcing my candidacy for president of the United States,” Trump said.
