Ex-President Trump continues to flirt with a renewed candidacy for the highest office in the United States. He already knows whether yes or no. But he doesn't want to lay his cards on the table just yet for America and the world. But he announces when he wants to reveal more.
Former US President Donald Trump has fueled speculation about running again in the 2024 election. "For me, I've already made this decision," Trump told New York Magazine - but without saying whether he wanted to compete again or not.
According to the outlet, Trump then added in a conspiratorial tone that the question was whether he would announce his "big decision" before or after the important congressional elections in four months: "Am I going to put it out there before or after? It's going to be my big decision be".
Trump has repeatedly flirted with a renewed candidacy since his deselection. In the United States, a person can serve two terms of office, whether consecutive or not. Trump would be 78 years old when elected in just over two and a half years.
The political career changer, ex-real estate mogul and reality TV star still refuses to admit his defeat in 2020 against the new President Joe Biden. He claims to have been deprived of victory by massive electoral fraud, but has never produced any evidence. Biden received 81 million votes in the election and a clear majority of voters. More than 74 million Americans voted for Trump. Biden succeeded Trump in the White House on January 20, 2021.
Trump has come under intense criticism because his supporters stormed the Capitol in Washington on Jan. 6 after a presidential rally, where Congress was about to formalize Biden's victory at the time. Trump then faced a second impeachment trial in Congress, where he was charged with "inciting sedition." A majority of the senators voted against the Republican. However, the two-thirds majority required for a conviction in the Senate was missed.
