Former President Donald Trump is still not saying whether he plans to run for president in 2024.
“I want him to run. He’s proven he can take the heat. We’re at a moment now where you’ve got to have someone who’s willing to fight, willing to stand up to all the abuses,” he added.
Trump has hinted that he may run for the Republican presidential nomination in 2024 but has not explicitly said he will.
During an interview on The Daily Wire’s “Candace” in May, host Candace Owens asked Trump if he plans to run for president in 2024.
“The answer is I’m absolutely enthused. I look forward to doing an announcement at the right time,” the former president said. “As you know, it’s very early, but I think people are going to be very, very happy … when I make a certain announcement.”
He continued, “For campaign finance reasons, you really can’t do it too early because it becomes a whole different thing. Otherwise, I’d give you an answer that I think you’d be very happy with.”
Finally, he added, “So we are looking at that very, very seriously. And uh, all I’ll say is stay tuned!”
Meanwhile, former Trump adviser Jason Miller was asked during an interview on Cheddar, “What is the likelihood President Trump runs again in 2024?”
“I would say somewhere between 99 and 100 percent. I think he is definitely running in 2024,” Miller responded. “I had a good conversation with him last night. I’m going to go see him in another couple days here.”
He added, “He has not said the magical words to me, but if you talk to him for a few minutes it’s pretty clear that he’s running.”
