In his latest interview, former President Donald Trump has reiterated his plans to make a political comeback in 2024…
Evidently undeterred by his election loss in November…
The former president has been vocal with his plans to re-run for president in 2024.
Trump appeared at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in February where he gave his first speech since leaving office.
He first addressed the rumors about starting a new political party, saying:
“I am not starting a new party. That was fake news. We’re not starting new parties. You know, they kept saying, ‘He’s going to start a brand new party.’ We have the Republican Party. It’s going to unite and be stronger than ever before.”
He then dropped his first hint at re-running for president.
“Who knows. I may decide to beat them for a third time,” he said, adding that he “may” decide to run.
Speaking about the “incredible journey,” he added that “it is far from over.”
“We will be victorious and America will be stronger and greater than ever before.”
Of course, many took Trump’s ambitious comments with a pinch of salt…
Because surely he won’t be running for president again… Right?
President Biden doesn’t seem to think so, anyway.
When asked recently about the prospect of a Trump 2024 campaign, Biden had simply scoffed at the idea, saying:
“Oh, come on. I don’t even think about it – I have no idea. I have no idea if there will be a Republican Party. Do you?”
Well, Trump has reiterated his desire to return to the White House once again.
In his first interview on-camera interview since his historic defeat, Trump was quizzed by his daughter-in-law, Lara Trump, about his plans for the future.
Of course, people from both sides of the political spectrum have had a lot to say about it.
Trump opened the interview by criticizing Biden’s first 2 months in power after Lara asked about the debut White House press conference last month…
“Well I think the press conference is probably the least of it,” he told his daughter-in-law. “People saw a lot of things happening long-prior to the press conference – and even the trip up the stairs – up and down, 3 times – there are a lot of things going on, so we’ll see what happens.”
“I hope he’s in good shape, I hope he’s okay for the sake of the country.”
But the real fuss came when he was asked whether his supporters could hope on him running for president again.
With an aura of slight smugness, he replied:
“You do have hope, that I can tell you, you do have hope. We love our country, this country, we all owe a lot to our country, but now we have to help our country.”
And now he’s confirmed his intentions in another interview.
“Are you thinking about running again, Mr. President, in 2024?’ Fox Business” Maria Bartiromo asked Trump this morning.
“Yes, 100 per cent,” he replied.
“And the polls show that everybody wants me to do it.”
“100 per cent I’m thinking about running and we will, I think, be very successful.”
And in terms of a potential running mate?
“Certainly Ron [DeSantis] would be considered, he’s a great guy.”
Sounds like the duo of everyone’s nightmares.
