Donald Trump, in an interview with Fox News personality Sean Hannity, insisted he is “very seriously” considering a run for the White House in 2024.
The comments mark the most significant declaration of the former President’s intentions to date.
Early on in the interview, Trump noted how he received roughly “12 million” more votes in 2020 than he did when he defeated Hillary Clinton in 2016.

Hannity then asked him what he planned to do in 2024.
“I say this, I am looking at it very seriously, beyond seriously,” said Trump. “From a legal standpoint, I don’t want to really talk about it yet – it’s a little too soon.”

Trump Seriously Considering Run In 2024
Trump cited several reasons why he would consider another run in 2024, most of which referenced several successes he had during his administration that have been reversed by President Biden.
“There’s more popularity (for Trump) now than there was the day before the election because they see how bad things are at the border,” he claimed.
A poll from the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research indicates a majority of Americans disapprove of President Biden’s handling of the ongoing crisis at the border.

“They see what’s going on,” the former President analyzed.
“They see that their guns are going to be gone, their Second Amendment. Their taxes are going up. Regulations are going through the roof. Jobs are going to go out,” Trump continued.
“The jobs are going to be gone. Your energy independence is going to be gone,” he warned.
It wasn’t some secret Trump/DeSantis meet at Mar-a-Lago this weekend to discuss 2024.
It was the yearly Palm Beach GOP Lincoln Day Dinner.
FL Governor is typically there and Trump showed up a couple of years back. This was all expected.
