According to a new report from the Daily Caller, President Donald J. Trump will likely run for president in 2024.
The outlet stated that based on what several sources familiar with Trump have told them, the 45th president’s decision to throw his hat into the ring is contingent upon two variables. Those variables include his health and whether the midterm elections widely see Trump-endorsed candidates ride a red wave to victory in November.
President Trump himself has often alluded to running in 2024. He teased supporters at a Save America rally in Delaware, Ohio, in April. He said, “The truth is I ran twice, I won twice, I did much better the second time than I did the first, getting almost 12 million more votes than we did in 2016 and getting more votes than any sitting president in the history of our country.”
He added, “And now we very well may have to do it again.”
The Daily Caller additionally reported those close to the president and his team believe that Trump is heavily leaning toward running in 2024 if Republicans take the House and the Senate. An anonymous source that spoke with the publication supposed that if the GOP does not capture either the Senate or House, Trump will choose not to run.
Last October, Real Clear Politics’ Tom Bevan sat down with President Trump for an exclusive interview at Mar-a-Lago where he asked Trump to give a reason why he may not run in 2024.
Trump replied, “Well, one reason could be your health. You get a call from your doctor and that’s the end of that. That stuff happens; you hope it doesn’t. I just had a medical, just had a great result…. politics is a crazy world. It is a big commitment of you, your children, your wife and your family.”
Many Trump supporters are waiting on pins and needles to see if he will run in 2024, but as the Daily Caller reported, he is likely waiting on the results of the 2022 midterm elections.
Further, RSBN previously reported that Trump told Americano Media’s Maria Herrera Mellado in April that he would probably announce potential campaign plans after the midterm elections, lending viability to that prediction.
