Former President Donald Trump just revealed that he is “beyond seriously” considering running for the U.S. presidency again in 2024, Breitbart reports.
Trump’s comments came during an hour-long interview that he did with the Fox News Channel’s Sean Hannity on Monday. The interview took place at Trump Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida. There, Trump, among other things, talked about his future plans as well as the future of the Republican Party.
Trump on the 2024 election
What many are waiting to hear is whether or not Trump is going to run again for the U.S. presidency in 2024. Thus far, he has refused to say that he definitely will or will not. So, Hannity gave Trump another opportunity to clarify the matter.
“First of all, [2024 is] a long time,” Trump said. “The odds, the odds. What are the odds?”
From there, Trump went on to tout his “tremendous numbers,” saying, “Nobody has ever gotten the numbers I’ve got. No sitting president has come even close.”
“There is more popularity now than there was the day before the  election because they see how bad things are at the border,” Trump continued. “They see what is going on. They see their guns are going to be gone — their Second Amendment. Their taxes are going up. Regulations are going through the roof. Jobs are going to go up.”
Trump said that “it’s going to take a little while to show, but if they add all these regulations back, the jobs are going to be gone, your energy independence is going to be gone.”
Then, after having said all of that, Trump finally answered Hannity’s question about whether he will run in 2024. “I am looking at it very seriously, beyond seriously,” Trump said, adding, “from a legal standpoint, I don’t want to really talk about it yet.”
Trump on the Republican Party
During another part of the interview, Trump told Hannity that if Republicans want to win future elections then it will be necessary for them to get behind his “Make America Great Again” platform.
Trump urged Republican politicians to “unify,” noting that the Republican Party has never been as unified as the Democratic Party, particularly when it comes to important votes. Trump gave the late Sen. John McCain’s (R-AR) ObamaCare vote as one example.
Trump revealed that he is working to help Republicans take back Congress.
“We are going to help with the House [in 2022],” Trump said. “I think we have a really good chance. I’m working with everybody including [House Minority Leader] Kevin McCarthy [R-CA]. Likewise, the Senate is going to be a little bit tougher.”
