Trump: Will He Or Won’t He?

Run for president again, that is.

The odds are all over the road as to whether former president Donald Trump will run in 2024 to recapture his bully pulpit.

This analyst believes he won’t because kingmaker, as he is now, has much of the fun of the political power of the presidency and little of the responsibility. That should appeal to Trump’s ego. He’s also smart enough to know that he brings too much baggage to the contest to make him attractive to swing voters. Though if Biden is the nominee that baggage could look innocuous in comparison to the Biden record.

But the case is just as strong for him running. Speaking of Trump’s ego, the psychic wound of losing to Joe Biden must haunt his every waking minute and cry out for revenge. Trump loves this country and knows he can do a better job by far than Biden. He’s also making moves like a candidate, as the story below displays. But those moves also raise his power as a kingmaker. He could say in late 2023 that, “After serious consideration, I think I can serve America better as a former president still actively engaged in the political process.” See? Fun and no worries.

The ad below just out from the Trump PAC is devastating. The writers and producers of this spot earned their money on this one. It captures the national zeitgeist on Joe Biden and Afghanistan. Only the most hardened Bolshevik America-hating Democrats don’t think this way. And as the ad shows, the press is gunning for Biden as well.

“I think it’s an issue that Americans are going to care about for a long time,” a Trump insider source told press regarding the ad.

FNC: “Former President Donald Trump is set to return to Iowa next month where he will hold a rally in Des Moines, a source familiar with the former president’s political operation has confirmed to Fox News.

The rally, first reported by the Des Moines Register, will be held on October 9 at the Iowa State Fairgrounds. This will be Trump’s first trip back to the first-in-the-nation caucus state since the 2020 election.

As reported by the Des Moines Register, Trump ‘returned to Iowa frequently in the closing days of the 2020 election, holding a rally in Des Moines on Oct. 15, 2020. He last visited Iowa for a rally in Dubuque on Nov. 1, 2020 — two days before the election.’

Trump won Iowa in both the 2016 and 2020 presidential elections. He edged out Biden in the 2020 presidential election in Iowa, receiving 53.2 percent of the state’s vote versus Biden’s 45 percent. Trump carried the state by 9.4 percentage points in 2016.

Trump’s visit to the Hawkeye state raises speculation as to whether the former president will seek to return to the White House through the 2024 presidential election.”
