One US president lost and then ran for another term. Gerald Ford was defeated by Jimmy Carter, and he thought about running, but he did not. Neither did Jimmy Carter or George HW Bush, who was never expected to make a serious play for another term. Donald Trump thinks differently, though.
The Florida resident is considering running for President in 2024. There have been reports that he might be announcing his decision soon. Until then, the other people who might want to run will have to wait it out.
The question is when and how Mr. Trump will announce that he wants to run for President again. He has been doing a lot of rallies this year and has given interviews to some right-wing channels, but none of these channels have told us when he will say that he wants to run in 2024.
So, what do we know so far?
Does he want to run again?
It’s clear that Mr. Trump wants to be President again. What is unclear is whether he thinks running for President will help him avenge his defeat in 2020 – but he is not closed to the idea.
Some of Donald Trump’s staff say that he will not be running for office again because he is afraid to look like a loser. But he has hinted at running since the inauguration of Joe Biden. He said that he is considering running for President. This is a difficult position because of the legal issues it presents. He wants to be careful about what he says, but you can take it as a good sign that he mentioned his thoughts about running to reporters in April. Later, when talking about campaign finance laws, he explained that they are complicated and stupid and then added that “I think you’ll be happy.”
The speaker said he would announce something in the not too distant future. He also said it to Joe Pages on a TV show.
The drumbeat for Trump’s 4th term has grown since he became President. He even suggested the slogan, “Make America Great Again, Again.” But he still doesn’t want to take office again.
People are working to find out about Mr. Trump in key states. They were able to get a secret memo from someone who was doing the polls. It showed that he is strong in most of the states that Joe Biden won when they ran against each other in 2020.
For now, he is not talking. Donald Trump said that “we are going to have an even bigger ’24” in an interview with British right-wing populist Nigel Farage.
Mr. Trump almost announced a re-election campaign in the summer of 2021. But he had some people tell him not to do it because if he did it before the midterms, he would have to take responsibility for any disappointment with Republicans.
Something else is also happening. If Mr. Trump goes on the campaign trail, then people will vote for him. This could make it difficult for Republicans to keep their focus on the 2022 election and on Joe Biden’s agenda.
The President says that he will wait to announce his run after the election. He is backing away from his man in Virgina and letting him stand on his own. Speaking to Fox News, he said that he probably would announce whether or not he’s running after the election.
I think a lot of people will be happy with the decision. I think they will announce this after the midterms. It does not mean that I am. But many people are waiting for me to make this decision and announce it publicly.
In December, a poll found that there was little difference between Trump and Biden. 54% of people had an unfavorable opinion of them, while 43% had a favorable opinion of Biden and 41% for Trump.
In a hypothetical 2024 election, Joe Biden would get 46% of the vote, and Donald Trump would get 45%. 10% said that they didn’t know who they would vote for.
Running mates and rivals Mr. Trump and Mike Pence’s relationship is not at the lowest point it has been. They may not share a presidential ticket again, but Mike Pence is still very popular with the GOP base and says good things when he speaks to audiences of Republicans.
But he (Mike Pence) refuses to fully cover up what happened on January 6, when Trump’s supporters yelled that they wanted to hang him. And he hasn’t gone in public with his boss since before the attack. He has pledged support for incumbent Republican governors even if they are facing challengers backed by Trump. It is unclear if he will run for President, not if Mr. Trump is not in the race (or something like that).
Meanwhile, Mr. Trump is thinking about who he wants to be, his running mate. He said that people should wait for him to announce it before they make a decision. He thinks that Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley are good choices.
Every once in a while, she does things that are not good, but she comes back. It is a good sign when someone respects you so much s s to say they would never want to run for President if you ran.
Mr. Trump is considering running mates as they come to see him at his home in Florida. He wants someone who will always be loyal to him.
