United States President Donald Trump has given an indication that he could be making another run for the White House in the 2024 presidential election.
The US president who has constantly questioned the legitimacy of the recent presidential poll in which he is projected to have lost, gave the surprise hint on Tuesday, December 1.
“It’s been an amazing four years,” Trump said at the event. “We’re trying to do another four years. Otherwise, I’ll see you in four years.”
Trump’s appearance at the event was livestreamed by Pam Pollard, the national committeewoman for the Republican party in Oklahoma. The video showed the Cross Hall of the White House illuminated with a number of Christmas trees with dozens of mostly maskless attendees standing close together.
Business Insider’s Adam Payne reported that Trump is telling his allies that he will run again in 2024 and could announce his new presidential bid before the new year. The Daily Beast reported that the president is also considering hosting a campaign event during Biden’s inauguration.
Trump’s presidential bid could throw a wrench into the plans of other 2024 GOP hopefuls . Business Insider’s Tom LoBianco reported that it could be risky for other Republicans to break from Trump and ignite his base if they were to run against them.
“It’s like threading a needle while riding a bike,” one Republican strategist told Insider.
Trump has been reluctant to concede the election to President-elect Joe Biden, with his campaign staff and supporters filing lawsuits challenging the results and halting certifications of votes.
Though, earlier this month, the president has allowed the formal transition proceedings to begin and said he would leave the White House if the Electoral College elects Biden.
