Former President Donald Trump is “very seriously” looking at a 2024 run.
Fox News Host Sean Hannity asked Trump during an interview, “Are you running again in 2024? What are the odds?”
Trump explained, “I got tremendous numbers. Nobody has ever gotten the numbers I got. No sitting president has come even close. There’s more popularity now than there was the day before the election because they see how bad things are at the border.”
He added, “They see what’s going on. They see that their guns are going to be gone, their Second Amendment. Their taxes are going up. Regulations are going through the roof. Jobs are going to go out.”
The former president suggested the effects of President Joe Biden’s policies are “going to take a little while to show.”
“But if they add all these regulations back, the jobs are going to be gone. Your energy independence is going to be gone,” he said.
Trump continued, “So I say this, I am looking at it very seriously, beyond seriously. From a legal standpoint, I don’t want to really talk about it yet, it’s a little too soon.”

During the interview, Trump railed against Biden for the situation at the border, as IJR reported.
“They’re playing it down as much as they can play it down. It’s a horrible situation, could destroy our country,” Trump said.
He went on, “People are pouring in. But you’ll see something as the months go by like you’ve never seen before. Already it’s like you’ve never seen before. There’s never been anything like what’s happened at our border. People are coming in by the tens of thousands. They’re walking in. … All they had to do was leave it alone.”
Trump previously hinted at a potential 2024 run during his speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in February, as IJR previously reported.
