Even though he lost badly in the 2020 election to President Joe Biden, failed, one-term former President Donald Trump is suggesting that he’ll likely have no choice but to run again in 2024 because it will be necessary for him to “save the country.”
Trump DID NOT win twice. He won in 2016 and lost in 2020. Ironically, he lost by the exact same electoral vote margin he won by four years earlier, 306-232.
As you’d expect, Trump also attacked President Biden, especially on the issue of Afghanistan, even though Trump began the withdrawal of U.S. forces from the country:
According to the ex-president, he handled the situation in Afghanistan much better than Biden, even though he failed to cite any facts to support his assertion:
Will Trump run again? That depends on some factors that have yet to be decided:
- His health, both mental and physical
- His legal status, which remains up in the air as several jurisdictions appear ready to bring charges against him
- Whether or not the GOP eventually turns on him, especially if he drags them down to massive losses in the 2022 midterm election
The other thing to consider is that Trump often says things in interviews just to pretend he’s still relevant. But the country seems to have moved on, and it’s highly unlikely voters will choose to go back to the bad old days of Emperor Donald.
