Washington, DC —Following former president Donald Trump’s announcement that he will seek reelection again in 2024, People For the American Way incoming President Svante Myrick released the following statement:

“Donald Trump may want to be reelected, but the tide has turned and he’s swimming against it. There was no Red Wave this year. Trump’s highest-profile election deniers lost their own elections. Americans voted overwhelmingly in favor of abortion rights. And young voters, who came out in droves, are looking for fresh leadership. That was clear in numerous down-ballot races where newcomers and young, progressive candidates won. This is the time to reinvigorate our democracy by investing in that pipeline of young leaders, who will excite and engage voters who are looking toward the future, not the past.”
