‘They want me to run again’: Trump addresses potential path to 2024 White House bid

Without access to his Twitter account and the bully pulpit of the presidency, Donald Trump has maintained a relatively low profile since leaving the White House earlier this year.

That appears to be changing, however, as he explained in a recent television interview in discussing a potential pathway to a second term in 2024.

“We have a very, very good chance”

Citing his continued popularity among GOP voters, Trump revealed during Tuesday’s installment of Fox News Primetime that he is still considering a comeback bid to reclaim his old job.

“Based on every poll, they want me to run again, but we’re going to take a look and we’ll see,” the former president said.

Before making a final decision on that front, however, Trump stressed the importance of securing as many wins as possible in next year’s midterm elections.

“First steps first, we have to see what we can do with the House,” he said. “I think we have a very, very good chance of taking back the House.”

Furthermore, Trump reiterated his belief that the U.S. Senate needs “better leadership” in place, promising that he would announce a decision about 2024 after the upcoming elections. His remarks were likely in reference to rumors surrounding the possible retirement of Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), with whom Trump has had a decidedly tense political relationship.

“I think we’re going to do very well”

Last week, McConnell announced his support of a bill in his home state that would force its Democratic governor to appoint a GOP senator should either Kentucky seat become vacant. The move sparked speculation regarding his future in the chamber.

“When you add it all up, I think we’ll do very well in two years and I think we’re going to do very well in four years,” Trump said.

He also used the recent cable news appearance to take aim at changes in state voting laws and procedures prior to November’s election that he believes contributed to irregularities and possible fraud in the reported results of the presidential race.

“The Democrats used COVID in order to do things that they can’t believe they got away with,” Trump declared. “The state legislatures did not approve these changes. Therefore, they’re not allowed.”

His interview this week was not the first time he has flirted with the idea of throwing his hat in the ring again ahead of the 2024 presidential election. During his recent speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference, Trump told attendees: “With your help, we will take back the House. We will win the Senate. And then a Republican president will make a triumphant return to the White House. And I wonder who that will be? I wonder who that will be. Who, who will that be? I wonder.”

  1. I hope and pray we get Trump back but I have no money to give for that purpose. I didn’t get the $600 stimulus and so far have not gotten the $1400 either. I surely could use that $600 as I need a new chair. I am 82 and get no SS
    and have to pay in monthly for medicare all because I taught in public school a few years for which I got the $1100 pension.

    1. I am a caregiver for my mom who has Alzheimer’s so I have no income and I didn’t get any of the relief checks either. Biden is worried about all the illegals, he needs to see there are Americans who are doing the right thing, and gets no help

  2. 2024 can’t come soon enough. I hope we still have a country by then as Biden is destroying us so badly.

    1. if Biden doesn’t ruin this country Harris will finish the job. i don’t think Biden will be in office much longer i’m sure the works are being planned already to remove him as soon as the Dem’s are done using him to do the dirty work

      1. I think that was the plan all along and I think the covid virus is the excuse for all the fraudulent mail in votes.How convenient that the virus was unleashed when it was! If the Dems have proved anything,it’s that they can rig an election and get away with it!

  5. I would like to see him run 2022 for the house and take on as speaker till 2024 he can drain the swamp for a time till he runs in 2024 not to mention all the old dems that would die of heart attacks almost term limits

    1. Raymond… I told that same thing to my husband the other week. Trump run for the house or senate. We might not make it til 2022 the rate the communists are pushing things thru. Prayers warriors are needed now!

    2. Good idea!!! I admire President Trump for having the fortitude to endure all
      that he was put through as President. Not everyone would be willing to go
      through what the Democrats did to him. He really sacrificed for America and I appreciated it!! He could probably make some inroads as a member of the House!

  6. Yes we need you president trump real bad, Biden has no clue what hes doing and hes going to have us in a war if they dont get him out of there, hes causing alot of hate with russia and china and North Korea, we dont need any wars. we need you to straighten up the mess biden has made and put a stop to all the people coming in to our country, WE NEED YOU HELP US!!
