People are pretty fed up with the Biden administration and while President Joe Biden’s stock is falling with the American people, former President Donald Trump’s only seems to be rising. While expletive-filled chants can be heard echoing through sporting events, cheers in favor of Trump are what greets him.
So the question on everyone’s mind is whether or not Trump will run again in 2024. He already told us he’d be back, but we never knew in what capacity he was talking about. Some speculated it was to be president, others that he would possibly create his own news network or social media company.
According to Fox News, Trump was asked directly if he would be returning again in 2024, and he answered it very directly:
“I don’t think we’re going to have a choice,” Trump told Fox News. “It is disgraceful.” Trump went on to bill the Biden administration’s withdrawal of U.S. military assets from Afghanistan as the “greatest embarrassment in the history of our country.” “When you look at Afghanistan and what happened, and the death for no reason, just for no reason,” Trump said, adding that military “parents – they want to speak with me – they don’t want to speak with Biden.” “They’re just devastated,” he said. “It is getting to a point where we really have no choice,” he added.
Things can still change between now and then, but it would appear that as of now, Trump is already eyeing his former seat. Normally, this kind of talk could be shrugged off. Very rarely does a former loser come back only to retake their seat, especially if that seat is in the Oval Office. Trump, however, is a different story.
For one, many hold that Trump’s loss last November was illegitimate, and to be sure, questions about odd occurrences and events that went down still hang in the air. It doesn’t help that Democrats have been working hard to make that level of confusion around elections the standard with the “For the People Act.” Trump wasn’t, and still isn’t, done with his agenda.
The other is the fact that Trump has effectively become the de facto leader of the Republican party, despite not holding any office and being completely absent from the social media scene. With few exceptions such as Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, there aren’t many people Republicans people would choose over Trump for the job of POTUS.
This is both due to Trump’s successes while in office and the fact that Democrats continue to tell Republicans that they’re afraid of him, be it through consistent attacks in the media, to silencing him on every platform possible. Any issue that Democrats have is immediately blamed on the fabled “orange man.”
Barring any complications, Trump will be returning and the Democrats seem to know it. They’re going to try to do him as much damage as they can, but it’s the left that makes Trump more powerful each day, be it their attacks on him or their attacks on America.
