Donald Trump is expected to announce his candidacy for the 2024 US presidential election this month, several media outlets have reported, after the former president all but confirmed his intention to seek the White House again.
Speaking at a rally in Iowa, Trump strongly suggested that he will run for president.
“In order to make our country successful and safe and glorious, I will very, very, very probably do it again – OK,” he told supporters.
“Get ready, that’s all I’m telling you. Very soon, get ready.”
As the country heads to crucial midterm elections that will decide the makeup of Congress, the former Republican president continues to make unfounded claims of fraud in the 2020 elections that he lost to President Joe Biden.
“This is the year we’re going to take back the House [of Representatives]. We’re going to take back the Senate. We’re going to take back America,” Trump said in Sioux City, Iowa on Thursday. “And in 2024 – most importantly – we are going to take back our magnificent White House.”
A presidential run by Trump would come at a time when he is facing numerous legal issues and investigations, including at least one criminal inquiry that could get him indicted.
