Former President Donald Trump teased his followers this week suggesting yet again that he could announce a bid for the White House next time around.
“The answer is I’m absolutely enthused,” Trump told Candace Owens on her show when asked if he would run for president in 2024. “I look forward to doing an announcement at the right time. You know for campaign finance reasons, you really can’t do it too early because it becomes a whole different thing.”
“Otherwise I’d give you an answer that I think you’d be very happy with,” Trump added. “All I say is, ‘stay tuned.’”
Trump’s comments were met with enthusiasm from his base, who are eager to oust President Joe Biden and reinstate the “America First” agenda.
During the interview, Owens joked that she could be Trump’s running mate in 2024.
“What a good choice that would be,” Trump responded. “That would be fantastic. You would be fantastic.”

I think it’s obvious President Trump will run in 2024!!! I think he will win the Republican nomination easily. Finally, he will defeat Sleepy Joe. The only outstanding question is: WHO WILL BE HIS RUNNING MATE????

Other leading Republican presidential contenders are warily monitoring Trump’s comments about another run. His announcement could lead to a difficult primary as other rising stars like Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo. or Florida’s Governor Ron Desantis mull a White House bid.
Regardless, the MAGA crowd celebrated Trump’s remarks.
Would i support a Trump-DeSantis ticket in 2024?
Yes, without question!
