All hell is breaking loose in Washington as the moment Democrats feared may soon be upon them.
Democrats thought they were done with Donald Trump.
But now Donald Trump let the cat out of the bag on why he will challenge Joe Biden in 2024.
When Donald Trump left office eight months ago it was an open question as to if Trump would mount a re-election campaign.
Polls showed Trump the overwhelming favorite to win the GOP nomination in 2024, but it was an open question if Trump actually wanted to run for president again.
In recent weeks Trump’s strongly hinted that he would run for president again telling interviewers like Dan Bongino and Sean Hannity that they would be “happy” with his decision when they asked if Trump made up his mind to run for president.
Any doubt appears to have faded away as Joe Biden’s catastrophically executed withdrawal from Afghanistan humiliated the nation and damaged Joe Biden’s political standing.
POLITICO reported that Trump’s been telling associates he is planning to run after sensing weakness in Joe Biden.
“The pace notably picked up in mid-August as Biden struggled to gain public approval for his handling of the U.S. exit from Afghanistan (Biden has said he was following Trump’s planned withdrawal), ‘he started bleeding, and Trump is like a shark. He smelled blood,’ said one confidante with whom Trump has recently spoken. But another cautioned that ‘he was running before the Afghanistan debacle. It’s nothing new,’” POLITICO exclusively reported.
POLITICO also reported that Trump wanted his political machine ready to roll the second he decided to announce a third presidential campaign.
“One person who has discussed Trump’s plans but declined to comment on the record to speak more freely said that ‘he really hasn’t decided, but we all think he’ll run … he wants to get in a position to where it’s a turnkey operation once he says yes. So he’s maximizing his position … the super PAC is ostensibly to help win back the House and the Senate. If he does that, it makes his position stronger,’” POLITICO also exclusively reported.
Two other developments also point in the direction of Trump running for president in 2024.
Trump scheduled a rally in the key state of Iowa next month.
If Trump runs for president, the Iowa caucus stands as the first nominating contest and a key general election battleground state.
Additionally, a new Emerson poll showed Donald Trump leading Joe Biden 47 to 46 percent in a hypothetical 2024 rematch.
Should Trump run for president again, Trump believes he could favorably contrast his record on COVID, illegal immigration, crime, the economy and Afghanistan with Joe Biden.
Polling data shows that could be a powerful argument.
