Report: Trump’s Team Has Set a Date for 2024 Announcement

Published on

Former President Donald Trump may be closer to launching his candidacy for president in 2024 now that the midterm elections are nearing their conclusion.

Axios reports that some close to Trump have considered making a formal announcement on November 14.

Axios reported that during a rally in Iowa on Thursday, Trump baited the crowd with unconfirmed statements.

“In order to make our country successful and safe and glorious, I will very, very, very probably do it again … Get ready that’s all I’m telling you — very soon. Get ready,” Trump said at the rally.

Trump and his crew have made no formal statements addressing the speculation around a second presidential candidacy.

A Trump spokesman, Taylor Budowich, clarified that Trump was “not commenting on the never-ending media speculation and rumors,” CBS News reported.

“As President Trump has said, Americans should go vote up and down the ballot for Republicans, and he will continue that message tomorrow night in Pennsylvania,” Budowich said.

Even Axios observed that Trump’s statement may depend somewhat on the outcome of Tuesday’s midterm elections and the performance of the Republicans.

FiveThirtyEight now predicts that the Republicans will win the Senate by a razor-thin margin. The current prediction is a 55-45 Republican Senate majority.

However, as reported by FiveThirtyEight on Thursday, the midterm elections do not necessarily appear to be a “red wave.” However, be prepared for anything.

“Instead, it’s looking like more of a ‘red ripple.’ But that doesn’t mean a red wave is impossible,” the polling site noted.

Despite the absence of a formal declaration, Trump has already started touring the country for rallies, and now many are speculating about the future of his genuine campaign and its potential success.

Reince Priebus, the former chief of staff in Trump’s White House, told the Associated Press that he believes Trump will run for reelection.

“The real question is are other big challengers going to run? If President Trump runs, he will be very difficult for any Republican to defeat,” Priebus said.

Despite Axios’s report that Trump’s staff appears to be contemplating a definite date for an announcement, there are still plenty who oppose Trump running for president again.

As anticipated, Twitter is ablaze with commentary on Trump’s candidacy.

As the Axios piece regarding probable dates for an announcement was tweeted and reposted, thousands of comments were posted in response.

“I am physically sickened by this possibility of a trump presidential run,” one user tweeted.

“We want him back,” another tweeted.

CBS stated that Trump has not made any public statements since last Saturday, when he told Americano Media, a Spanish site, that he will soon reveal his future intentions.

“I have already in my mind made it. But very shortly — and I will be announcing it very shortly. I’ll be letting people know very quickly,” Trump said.
