Amid the chaotic governance under Joe Biden’s administration, President Donald Trump is “definitely” planning to launch a White House bid in 2024, according to Jason Miller, a former Trump adviser and founder of GETTR.
“I think he is definitely running in 2024,” said Miller in a recent interview with Cheddar’s J.D. Durkin. “He has not said the magical words to me, but if you talk to him for a few minutes it’s pretty clear that he’s running, and I think just what we’ve seen unfold in Afghanistan recently has really just emboldened that.”
Miller, who has remained close with Trump after departing to focus on his social media platform, told Durkin that the likelihood that Trump will run again is “somewhere between 99 and 100 percent.”
Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, a staunch ally of Trump, confirmed in a leaked recording that Trump is “about ready to announce” that he is going to run in 2024, The Hill reported.
“President Trump, he’s going to run again,” said Jordan. “I know so. I talked to him yesterday. He’s about ready to announce after all of this craziness in Afghanistan.
During an exclusive interview this week with Fox News, Trump was asked by Greg Gutfeld about his 2024 presidential ambitions.
“I love our country,” said Trump. “I think you’ll be very happy. I would say two, three years ago you might not have been that happy but now I think you’d be happy.”
“I’ll make a decision in the not-so-distant future,” he confirmed.
Speculation surrounding Trump’s candidacy expanded after his Save America PAC hired two Iowa political consultants in August which could signal that he may announce a presidential bid soon. Trump revealed afterwards that he will hold a rally in Des Moines, Iowa, the first state that caucuses for the presidential primaries.
Trump, who has polled vastly higher than other potential Republican contenders, would likely clinch the 2024 Republican presidential nomination if he runs.
