Former US President Donald Trump, 75, has reiterated his intention to run for the US presidential election of 2024. This time he made a statement on a program on conservative Real America’s Voice.
When asked what would be an impediment to running for president again, he replied, “Bad news from a doctor, I think. The minute you get a call and they ask you to come over because there are bad results. Things just happen. God, but they happen. But I feel like I’m good.”
Trump has yet to officially announce his candidacy for president again, but he has already made several hints in that direction. He did so during a visit to the New York Police Department to commemorate the September 11, 2001 attacks. “We can’t talk about that yet. I think you’d be very happy,” Trump said at the time.
As a reason for delaying the announcement, he himself referred to the “Campaign Finance Act, which is frankly absurd.” The longer he delays the official announcement, the longer he will be able to raise funds without having to report officially.
Prior to the inauguration of incumbent President Joe Biden (78), Trump was the oldest president at the start of his term. If he does participate in 2024 and succeeds, he could become the second president of the United States in history – after Grover Cleveland in the late 19th century – to serve two non-consecutive terms. A recent poll shows that Trump is currently more popular than Biden.
During the interview with Real America’s Voice, he also didn’t have a good word for his former chief medical advisor Anthony Fauci. Trump said he was doing “the exact opposite” of what Fauci had said to fight the coronavirus. “It was there for about forty years. It was a piece of furniture.”
More than 400,000 Americans have died of Covid-19 during Trump’s presidency.
