President Donald Trump teased an eager audience of MAGA supporters on Saturday night with a foreshadow of a potential 2024 presidential run, telling the crowd that he would “probably have to do it again!”
He stated, “The election was rigged and stolen and now our country is being destroyed. I ran twice, I won twice, I did much better the second time than I did the first, getting millions more votes in 2020 than we got in 2016, and likewise getting more votes than any sitting president in the history of our country by far!”
The Save America rally on Saturday was held in Robstown, Texas, and featured a slate of America First, Trump-endorsed candidates running for election ahead of November’s rapidly-approaching Election Day.
“And now, in order to make our country successful, safe and glorious again, I will probably have to do it [run] again,” Trump remarked, looking across the audience.
Rallygoers leapt to their feet at his remark and broke out in chants of “USA” and “FOUR MORE YEARS!”
Trump’s comment was a departure from his typical allusions to a hypothetical 2024 campaign. His use of the word “probably” diverged from his usual rally commentary, where he routinely has told the crowd that he “may just have” to run again in 2024.
The president added with an air of caution: “But first, we have to win a historic victory for the Republican Party this November!”
