Donald Trump is primed to give the presidency another run in 2024, according to a new report broken by the Rolling Stone.
“Trump has told at least three people he’s dined with in recent months that he plans to run in 2024, a former senior official at the Republican National Committee tells Rolling Stone.”
“I have three friends who’ve had dinner with him in the last couple of months,” the report said citing the former RNC official. “All three reported that his current plans are to run for president in 2024.”
“Now, whether he does or not is a different issue,” the official added. “We’ve still got three years to go. But he’s telling people that.”
The 45th president’s announcement that he plans to run again reportedly came at a series of dinners.
“The ex-R.N.C. official says the first two dinners took place in late spring. But the third dinner happened in the last two weeks,” the official said. “The first two dinner companions came away from their conversations convinced Trump was serious and he’s running, the official adds. The third said he left the dinner ‘not 100% sure Trump wants to run but he likes being in the conversation, he wants to freeze the field, and he wants his name out there,’ the ex-R.N.C. official said.
“All the people I talk to who deal with him directly think as of now he is running,” an ex-Trump adviser added.
Donald Trump was asked by Sean Hannity if he had made up his mind yet about a presidential run during a town hall with the former president.
“You’re not going to answer, but I have to ask,” Hannity said. “Without giving the answer … have you made up your mind?”
“Yes,” Trump answered, which drew cheers from the audience.
If Trump’s series of rallies and frequent statements are any indication, Donald Trump never stopped running for the presidency. The only thing left for him to do is to make it official.
