Donald Trump said he has made a decision about whether to re-run in 2024 but refused to say if he is actually planning another campaign.
Trump has hinted at a potential comeback but so far has declined to confirm it. “You’re not going to answer, but I have to ask,” Fox News host Sean Hannity told Trump at a town hall event in Edinburg, Texas. “Where are you in the process, or — let me ask you this, without giving the answer … have you made up your mind?” “Yes,” Trump responded, generating applause from the friendly audience.
“I think you got it right,” Hannity told the crowd, referring to their presumption that the 45th president would enter the 2024 presidential sweepstakes. Trump’s answer comes days after he held his first post-presidential rally in Ohio, where he talked about the “catastrophe” of the Biden administration.
Trump has been seen at the top of multiple polls for Republican contenders for the 2024 election, but would still have a crowded field to face if he chose to run. Other potential candidates include Florida Governor Ron De Santis and former Vice President Mike Pence.
“If you move forward, you know how difficult it is, but you seem ready to reengage in that battle,” Hannity said later in the interview. “It’s not that I want to,” Trump said. “The country needs it. We have to take care of this country. I don’t want to, is this fun? Fighting constantly? Fighting always? I mean, the country, what we have done is so important.”
