Trump Says ‘2020 is a Long Way From Over’ Amid Speculation of 2024 Run

Though he is not yet out of the Oval Office, there has already been swirls of speculation that President Donald Trump might mount another run for the presidency in 2024.

A recent poll from Morning Consult found that a majority of Republicans would vote for Trump again — 54% of respondents said they would vote for Trump if the 2024 election were held today.

Other figures that respondents would get their vote included Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Donald Trump Jr. and Vice President Mike Pence.

But the president is not looking forward to the next cycle, in a tweet on Wednesday morning, he wrote, “But 2020 is a long way from over.”

The president has spent the weeks since his election loss to President-elect Joe Biden insisting that there was widespread voter fraud in the election and that his lawyers will be able to overturn the results in court.

But that strategy has failed and states like Georgia and Michigan — which were key victories for Biden — have certified their elections and named Biden as the victor.

The president did seem to inch closer to accepting his defeat this week when he said that he recommended that the Government Services Administration (GSA) make federal resources and services available to Biden.

Trump then quickly tweeted “What does GSA being allowed to preliminarily work with the Dems have to do with continuing to pursue our various cases on what will go down as the most corrupt election in American political history? We are moving full speed ahead. Will never concede to fake ballots and Dominion.”

The reports that Trump may run again in 2024 began almost immediately after major news outlets projected Biden as the winner.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said on November 9 that he would urge Trump to run again, saying, “I would encourage President Trump, if after all this he does fall short or he just can’t quite get there to not let this movement die. To consider running again.” The South Carolina senator is a close ally of the president.

  1. Chris, there is no law that forbids a felon from becoming President. No crime, not rape, extortion, bribery, tax evasion, fraud, perjury, or obstruction of justice, no conviction for of these prevent a person from lawfully occupying the office of President. Nor, does it seem, would these crimes or conviction of them prevent Republicans from voting for that person. It’s been proved. Probably Democrats would make a big fuss and not vote for a felon, but as our President #45 and his base have shown us, scruples are for sissies.

    The only requirements of the Constitution are that a President be born an American citizen, and be at least 35 years old when he takes office.

  2. You are always a breath of fresh air around here, Ron. You should speak up more often.

    However, I think that it will take a lot of change before a 3rd party can truly affect things. That is a pipe dream for some future generation to figure out. We are too corrupt today.

  3. Running in 2024 what a joke so he can continue to bring down the USA to its knees as if the past 4 years we not enough with ending it with the 2020 Covid 19 pandemic out of control. Had he not messed with the Chinese trade embargo a year ago we may have never seen this pandemic. He has pilfered the government out of millions of dollars for his own good and pardoned liars and cheats in his wake of discourse. He has divided this country to as close as it could get to the era of the the past civil war. Republicans and Democrats do not give a load of crap about the American people anymore. This is why the correct balancing of government needs big money out along with any lobbyist with term limits on all government positions. maybe even a 3rd party along with the current parties would keep this government truthful.

  4. “a majority of Republicans would vote for Trump again” Article

    What is the likelihood of this happening, though? What is the likelihood of him rewinning?

    He can say whatever the hell he likes today, but by 2024 he will be 78 years old and we can already see what a fragile state that his mind is in now. He needs two hands just to raise a glass of water up to his mouth, for crying out loud.

    While he may like the adulation while being the constant focus of the world and Cult-45, he loves to golf too much to have to give that up. He also wants to set up a new media company, to take down FOX, but that is very risky (don’t worry, he will grift to get the money necessary), so if he devoted any sort of focus on actually doing that, will he realistically want to stop and then start running for president again? Really? He is just not capable of succeeding at doing both at the same time. His Majesty is no Elon Musk, that’s for sure.

    My bet? He will try to hang on to the American Fascist Party for as long as he can, but some younger upstart will primary him and probably win. If he wins the AFP primary, I can’t see him rewinning in the 2024 election. Voters are obviously not enamored with him anymore.

    What is your bet and why?

  5. “If you can’t see that the Dem party is fractured as well as the Rep party and it will only get worse in the next two to four years” Lying Paul The Emeffer

    Who the hell said that I can see the divisions in both parties? Not me. Since you don’t pay any attention to important stuff, I mentioned them within the last month here.

    BTW, if you think that THAT is the problem, you are way out of touch. Diversity is beautiful, baby! This is America! The problem is when everyone thinks like YOU!

  6. Walter Mitty Shorty too bad your hopes are in vain. If you can’t see that the Dem party is fractured as well as the Rep party and it will only get worse in the next two to four years you can hope all you want without no fruition to come about.

  7. Jayjay: You are making too much work.

    Neither you nor I can prove how an unknowable future would have turned out without reality happening. The corrupt Dem Party made sure that we won’t find out for a very long time.

    Yes, I believe that Bernie Sanders COULD have made a huge difference for the majority of this hurting nation, but we will never know for sure, now, right? What backs me up? Optimizm. We CAN do better, we MUST do better, and soon.

    The “defund the police” chant didn’t come from Bernie or most other politicians. It came mainly from protesters. It was used by the right and the conservative leadership as a weapon against scary progressives who represent the MAJORITY of us Americans on all major issues. You don’t understand that yet, either.

    You tend to underplay what Sanders could have achieved. It would have taken some big battles within the Democratic Party, he would probably have lost many, but those battles MUST be fought for US, and soon. It isn’t necessarily what Sanders could have achieved that matters as much as starting to SEPARATE the two corrupt parties, delineate the differences, so that independents and the non-voting half of our population could be brought out to vote and be heard. Right now, far too many are not voting because it too difficult to tell the difference between the two conservative parties. Biden / Harris makes THAT obvious claim perfectly clear.

    The population is DYING because of “stability” and no change. We MUST have big changes.

    Lying Paul The Emeffer: I want a Democratic Party that REFUSES to put corrupt Republicans in its administration. I want a Democratic Party that REFUSES to deal with a nasty American Fascist Party and their cruel ideas. I want a Democratic Party that REFUSES to copy the American Fascist Party, to not fist-bump or hug them. I want a Democratic leadership that will LEAD THE FIGHT against such a dangerous regime, and not partner with them. I want the Democratic Party to FIGHT corruption, not make it worse. Get it?

  8. Jaybird “bring the two parties together” will never happen because there will be 3 maybe 4 parties- the socialists, the true dems, the Rinos, and the true reps.

  9. General….and you obviously think Bernie could do better right now at this time? Unfortunately he would never have won against Typhoid Trump. Please site what backs up your belief. The issues with Republicans needs to be addressed. Democracy is in peril with such division and going far left will serve to divide us further. The stupidest sound bite was “defund the police” and not speaking out against the label “socialism”. Dems do need to grow some. The cult of Trump personality trumpsters , I’m not sure can ever be turned but we need to find some way to bring the two parties together. You tend to downplay Biden’s ability to heal the nastiness that is trump. I’m all for predictable and stable after Typhoid Trump.

  10. 8 weeks from today (11/25/2020) the Cheeto von Tweeto will no longer be President.
    Happy days are here again
    The skies above are clear again
    So let’s sing a song of cheer again
    Happy days are here again

  11. Delbert, by April 2021 I predict that mainstream libtards will realize they fkd up on Nov 3, 2020.

  12. “I’m finally coming to think that Trump probably is the best President, at least in the last 150 years.” OBSIDIAN

    We know. BWAHAHAHAHAHA!

    Delbert: don’t be too sure. Unfortunately, he will be the petulant child heading the American Fascist Party until there is either a primary through which he gets sidelined, or either he quits politics (yeah, right) or something like his health fails. He is getting old, over-weight, and doesn’t eat well, etc. Four more years will take a big cognitive decline hit, too.

    The problem is that what led up to him being elected has not changed. His “force” will be around for at least one, maybe two, generations. THAT is the problem. Until the current Democratic Party leadership dies off or loses influence, then THEY will be a shit party for about a generation, too. Don’t look for someone like Joke Biden to do much of what we really need done, that’s for sure.

  13. By the time 2024 rolls around, the court system will long have found Trump guilty of any number of his crimes. They only need ONE conviction to give him a criminal record, and hence, make him ineligible to run for the presidency! ONLY ONE…!! A win-win for the people! And let the Repubs whine about that!

  14. I’m finally coming to think that Trump probably is the best President, at least in the last 150 years.

  15. I predict that by 2024, even Republican stalwarts will have learned that this man Trump is a trouble making self promoter, a vain, foolish, and petulant incompetent. Given a year without the White House as a platform, and without all the right-wing extremist news falling in line behind him, most of his base will be wondering what it is they fell in love for four years.
