While rallying in Robstown, Texas, on Saturday, 45th President Donald J. Trump gave a big 2024 hint, which has led to much excitement for another Trump run for the White House. Trump told the large crowd that he would “probably” run again for presidency. Also, while at the rally, he chided a potential primary opponent, ex-Vice President Mike Pence, who refused to send the electors back to the states amid voter fraud concerns. He instead certified the 2020 election for Democrat Joe Biden.
Trump said that former Trump administration officials, such as Pence and former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, would be “very disloyal.” He told the crowd, “I ran twice. I won twice. I did much better the second time than I did before.”
The Epoch Times reports:
“And now, in order to make our country successful, safe and glorious again, I will probably have to do it again,” he added during the rally, which was being held for candidates in the Lone Star State. As soon as he made that statement, the crowd cheered and indicated they wanted Trump to run again.
The former president has not made any definitive statements on whether he would run for the nation’s highest office, but he has strongly suggested that he would in numerous speeches and interviews after departing office in January 2021. The reason why, according to Trump, is due to what he described as antiquated campaign-finance laws around presidential announcements.
“The silent majority is back stronger than ever before,” Trump said Saturday. “My fellow citizens, this incredible journey we are on together has only just begun.”
If Trump were to make an announcement, it would likely trigger action by the Federal Election Commission in regards to his finances, limiting how much he could pull in from donors.
Another potential “disloyal” actor who could jump into the 2024 presidential race is former United Nations Amb. Nikki Haley, who President Trump appointed to that role after Haley left the governorship of South Carolina.
