Trump Looking ‘Beyond Seriously’ At 2024 Presidential Run

Former President Donald Trump may not be finished after claiming the previous election was rigged, though he stopped just short of saying he intends to run again in 2024.

“I got tremendous numbers. Nobody has ever gotten the numbers I got. No sitting president has come even close,” Trump told Fox News host Sean Hannity during an hourlong interview. “There’s more popularity now then there was the day before the election because they see how bad things are at the border. They see what’s going on. They see that 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 out.”

By 2024, Trump implied, Americans will be well aware of the many shortcomings of current President Joe Biden and will be ready for another president.

“If (the current administration) add all these regulations back, the jobs are going to be gone. Your energy independence is going to be gone,” Trump said. “So I say this, I am looking at it very seriously, beyond seriously. From a legal standpoint, I don’t want to really talk about it yet. It’s a little too soon.”

Some Republicans have rejected Trump’s claims of voter fraud, as well as some of his policies. He took those party members to task.

“We’ve expanded the Republican Party. You’ve seen,” he told Hannity. “I mean, the Texas border, we have the biggest Hispanic vote since — as the governor said to me, he called me up, great governor, he said, since Reconstruction. I said, you’re talking about Civil War, right? He said, since Civil War. If you want to win and win big, you have to do that. You have to do it.”

  1. Look, DJT gets killed for some things that he doesn’t deserve to get killed for. However, he’ll drive way too many people to the polls that will vote against him just because he’s Trump. He’s also terribly inarticulate when it comes to conservative policies, since in many respects he’s not really a conservative. Oh, and he’s old AF at this point. Better to make room for DeSantis et al.

  2. Imagine thinking another Republican will get elected after half the nation of El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Panama & Mexico have been amnestied in the name of compassion and not at all a shameless power play to get a one party rule nation.

    That said – it’s DeSantis 2024. It can be no one else

  3. I agree with trump’s platform, and I appreciate his boldness against globalists, but I think DeSantis would make a better presidential candidate who would bring people across the aisle. If Trump would get behind him with his organization it would be unstoppable, then Trump could do a lot more damage outside of the White House where he’s not beholden to anyone. That said, the party may want to keep DeSantis in Florida to lock down the vote in that state and keep it a strong hold. I think there are four solid presidential candidates with the stones to take on the woke mob in Trump, DeSantis, Hawley, and Cruz. That’s it right now.
