Here’s What Trump Said When Asked If He’s Running for President
On Wednesday, former President Donald Trump gave his first interviews since leaving the White House. While the former president discussed the remarkable life of radio legend and conservative icon Rush Limbaugh, Trump also fielded other questions, like if he will be running for president in 2024.
Newsmax’s Geg Kelly tried pinning the one-term president down multiple times on the subject of a possible run.
“Again, look, it’s a no-brainer, right?” Kelly asked. “You’re going to run for president in 2024, right?”
“Well, we have tremendous support. I won’t say yet, but we have tremendous support. And I’m looking at poll numbers and they’re through the roof,” said Trump.
Trump said his poll numbers have improved following his latest impeachment.
“I’m the only guy who gets impeached and my numbers go up,” Trump joked.
Trump left the possibility of a presidential run at “you’ll see what happens.”
“It’s too early to say, but I see a lot of great polls out there. That’s for sure,” said Trump.
Listen to the whole thing below:
If Trump does decide to run, he will most certainly be the automatic front-runner for Republicans.
If he doesn’t run, he will play the role of kingmaker on the right.
He still wields tremendous influence with millions of Americans.
