President Trump’s supporters have been talking increasingly about his running again in 2024, since it looks like the many legal challenges will not amount to reversing the media’s call for Biden in 2020.
Never has there ever been a more appealing idea.
The Daily Wire, referring to reporting from Daily Beast:
The conversations have explored, among other things, how Trump could best time his announcement so as to keep the Republican Party behind him for the next four years. Two of these knowledgeable sources said the president has, in the past two weeks, even floated the idea of doing a 2024-related event during Biden’s inauguration week, possibly on Inauguration Day, if his legal effort to steal the 2020 election ultimately fails.
And there’s this, from Bloomberg.
A few days before National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien left for a high-profile tour of southeast Asia, President Donald Trump delivered some news to him, Secretary of State Michael Pompeo and Vice President Mike Pence in the Oval Office.
Trump planned to run for president again in 2024, he told the men, if he couldn’t overturn his Nov. 3 defeat by Joe Biden.
“If you do that — and I think I speak for everybody in the room — we’re with you 100 percent,” O’Brien responded, according to two people briefed on the conversation. Pompeo and Pence, who are both regarded as contenders for the 2024 Republican nomination, smiled but said nothing, the people said.
So this could be for real, y’all.
And buddy, I can’t hardly even think of a more worthwhile thing in the world that driving the liberal media up the wall that day. They deserve to have their special moment rained on. It’s just what I want for Christmas.
Oh and I liked this part too.
The Daily Beast also cited “two sources with direct knowledge of the matter,” claiming that the president “has privately bragged that he’d still remain in the spotlight, even if Biden is in the Oval Office, in part because the news media will keep regularly covering him since — as Trump has assessed — he gets the news outlets ratings and those same outlets find Biden ‘boring.’”
COUNT on that.
