Trump Makes Major Announcement on 2024 Timeline

Will he or won’t he?  Can Donald Trump muster the same enthusiasm as he had in 2016 and 2020 again in 2024?  Or is it time for the former President to anoint another conservative to carry on his legacy in the Republican primary?

For many, the answer has always been “yes”.  Trump simply cannot stand to lose, and leaving politics after being defeated in 2020 just isn’t on-brand for the former NYC business mogul.

And while he has certainly hinted at his imminent candidacy, the fact that no official announcement has been made has some within the Republican Party curious as to when, or if, that declaration will arrive.

Trump himself appeared to clear that up this weekend.

Former President Donald Trump, in an exclusive interview with Fox News, said he will “probably” wait until after the 2022 midterm elections to formally announce whether he will run for president in 2024.

“I am certainly thinking about it and we’ll see,” Trump said. “I think a lot of people will be very happy, frankly, with the decision, and probably will announce that after the midterms.”

The former president said that timeline was “probably appropriate.”

“It doesn’t mean I will,” Trump said of whether he will stick to that timeline. “It’s probably appropriate, but a lot of people are waiting for that decision to be made.”

Trump also acknowledge the reality of the situation, stating that there were plenty of “good people” who were waiting to hear his own announcement before deciding on their own potential candidacy.
