Former President Donald Trump has kept his future in politics to himself, but in his first sit-down television interview since leaving office in January, Trump may have tipped his hand, no matter how slightly. Sitting down with Sean Hannity at Mar-a-Lago, by the end of the interview, Trump nearly had the Fox News host convinced he plans to run for president again in 2024.
“Are you running again in 2024?” Hannity asked. “What are the odds?” “First of all, it’s a long time,” Trump replied. “The odds, the odds. What are the odds?” Then, after a brief tangent, Trump added, “I say this: I am looking at it very seriously, beyond seriously. From a legal standpoint, I don’t want to really talk about it yet. It’s a little too soon.”
Whether or not he runs again, Trump made it clear he’ll go to great lengths to help the GOP win back Congress.
“If they need a rally, we’ll do a rally. We’ll do calls,” Trump said. “We’ll do all sorts of things. No, no, we’re all in.”
And Trump believes that any Republican who wants to win upcoming elections would stand a better chance if they adopt his policies.
“Should anybody that wants to run for the House or the Senate, should they take this make America great agenda and fight for those things that you fought for the four years you were president?” Hannity asked. “If they want to win, yes,” Trump responded, later adding, “If you want to win and win big, you have to do that. You have to do it.”
