JUST IN: Trump Hints Again at 2024 Presidential Run

On August 7, former president Donald Trump made a suggestion that he would run for president again in 2024 but refrained from making a formal announcement.

Trump remarked, “It’s not a long period, whatever, whether you go before or after, certainly not a very long length of time,” in answer to a reporter’s inquiry on whether he should declare his candidacy before or after the 2022 midterm elections.

It’s coming, and I believe people will be delighted, added Trump.

“A situation like this has never existed in our nation. Everything was lost. Energy independence has been lost. We are no longer respected. Every single thing you can lose has been lost, claimed Trump.

We’ll therefore be making an announcement soon, I’m afraid.

When the same issue was posed to the former president earlier this year in an interview with The New Yorker, he said that he wasn’t sure whether to make the announcement before or after the midterm elections.

Before entering the stage at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Dallas, Texas, Trump made the comments on Saturday.

In an usual straw poll conducted before to the president’s CPAC speech, 69% of participants said they would support him as the GOP contender for president in 2024. Ron DeSantis, a Republican governor of Florida, came in second and received 24% of the vote.

Trump attacked Democratic policies in the lengthy address, specifically criticizing Sens. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) for supporting a new $739 billion spending bill that heavily funds the left’s “green” agenda.

Because they supported the legislation, which Democrats have dubbed the “Inflation Reduction Act,” Trump predicted that Manchin and Sinema will lose their seats. He claimed that the plan would merely make the already-high inflation—which is at a 40-year high—worse.

“We had the most successful economy in world history. We had no inflation, according to Trump.

In 2024, Sinema and Manchin will face reelection. Trump won West Virginia in 2020 by a margin of about 39 points. He narrowly lost in Arizona, but he still believes that fraud and problems with the voting process may have affected the result.

Trump put forth a number of policy ideas, including dismantling the U.S. Department of Education and giving some drug dealers the death penalty.

The only nations without a drug issue in the world, according to Trump, are those that have implemented the death sentence for drug dealers.

The president promised to make communities safer and re-secure the border in statements that sounded a lot like many of his campaign speeches. Republicans, according to him, will concentrate their efforts on apprehending and expelling illegal immigrants who poured into the nation after President Joe Biden undid several of Trump’s immigration initiatives.

Trump declared, “We will either send you back to the place from which you came or instantly put you in prison.”
