Trump says he ‘will probably have to’ run for president in 2024

'I ran twice. I won twice. I did much better the second time than I did before,' says former president

Former US President Donald Trump has suggested that he might have to run for president in 2024.

“I ran twice. I won twice. I did much better the second time than I did before,” Trump said at a rally in Texas late Saturday. “And now in order to make our country successful, safe and glorious again, I will probably have to do it again.”

In reference to his supporters who voted him into the presidential office in 2016, the former president said they are “stronger than ever before.”

“The silent majority is back stronger than ever before … My fellow citizens, this incredible journey we are on together has only just begun,” said Trump.

The suggestion came amid reports that the former president was planning to announce his intent after midterm elections on Nov. 8.

Citing Trump’s former adviser Kellyanne Conway, CBS News reported that Trump could announce his bid for the presidential race by Thanksgiving, which falls on Nov. 24.
