Donald Trump is considering announcing 2024 plans during President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration in January, The Daily Breast reports.
From the Daily Beast:
According to three people familiar with the conversations, the president, who refuses to acknowledge he lost the 2020 election as he clearly did, has not just talked to close advisers and confidants about a potential 2024 run to reclaim the White House but about the specifics of a campaign launch. The conversations have explored, among other things, how Trump could best time his announcement so as to keep the Republican Party behind him for the next four years. Two of these knowledgeable sources said the president has, in the past two weeks, even floated the idea of doing a 2024-related event during Biden’s inauguration week, possibly on Inauguration Day, if his legal effort to steal the 2020 election ultimately fails.
By teasing a 2024 run, Trump is implicitly recognizing that his efforts to overturn the election are longshots while trying to remain in the spotlight and influence Republicans in Congress to further stymie a Biden presidency, thus setting the stage for his return in 2024.
If Donald Trump seeks the Republican party nomination for president again in 2024, he will start the party nomination process as the overwhelming favorite. A recent Morning Consult Poll shows Donald Trump with a 42 point lead over his closet potential rival Vice-President Mike Pence, 54%–12%.
