For anyone missing the divisiveness and vitriol of this year’s presidential election campaigns, just wait four years and America might get a second act.
President Donald Trump is planning to re-run for his office in 2024 and announce it by the end of the year, Reuters reported, citing Trump’s discussions with allies
That is an indication that Trump is accepting a defeat in this election while he publicly contests the loss to President-elect Joe Biden and files lawsuits in several states.
“Now, I think that folks are starting to realize that if Donald Trump loses, he might be the guy (in 2024),” former Trump acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney told the Institute for International and European Affairs think tank last week. “I’m telling you absolutely.”
He told the Institute for International and European Affairs think tank, “Now, I think folks are starting to realize that if Donald Trump loses, he might be the guy” to run in 2024, and “I’m telling you absolutely.”
“I would absolutely expect the president to stay involved in politics and would absolutely put him on a shortlist of people who are likely to run in 2024. He doesn’t like losing.”
Mulvaney, the U.S. envoy to Northern Ireland, said Trump’s high-energy ways would make him more engaged in 2024 or 2028 after a loss this year.
“Don’t lose sight of the fact that he will technically be younger than Joe Biden is now, four years from now,” Mulvaney said. “Stories about his energy level, the fact that he doesn’t sleep, and his vivaciousness are true.”
In an unconventional move after a presidential election loss, Trump endorsed Ronna McDaniel to remain as the Republican National Committee chair. The RNC will vote in late January on whether to retain McDaniel for a third term.
If a 2024 Trump presidential pursuit is a sure thing, will doing it as a Republican also be a given?
