If, in fact, President Trump announces a bid for the Oval Office in 2024, few will be surprised.

He’s been hinting at that for about two years now.
But now a report reveals it could soon. Very soon.
The Washington Examiner reports that confirmation could come virtually at any time.
“Several Republican operatives are reportedly on edge amid speculation that former President Donald Trump will make his 2024 presidential bid official Monday evening,” the Examiner reported.
“Confidants close to Trump believe he is chomping at the bit and could expedite his timetable for debuting his comeback bid to Monday night’s rally in Ohio, where he will be stumping for Republican Senate hopeful J.D. Vance and others, according to Axios reporter Jonathan Swan.”
Swan explained that, based on calls and texts, the speculation is that Trump will make public his plans.
Other reports have suggested that Trump will wait until Nov. 15.
Trump often has said while he isn’t announcing his decision about 2024, where he is the favorite among possible GOP candidates, people will be “very happy” when they hear his decision.
He even teased his plans over the weekend at a rally in Miami, where he said he will “probably have to do it again.”
Under President Trump, the southern border was being secured, Russia’s Vladimir Putin was not invading neighbors, inflation was very low, mortgage interest rates were low, gasoline was a little over $2 a gallon.
Since Joe Biden moved into the White House, that list has been virtually reversed.
The Examiner explained, “Behind the scenes, some Republicans have prodded Trump to wait until after the midterm cycle to keep the focus on the GOP’s crusade to flip the House and Senate. However, a source familiar with the matter cautioned the Washington Examiner that it is unclear if Trump will expedite the timeline.”
The Examiner’s source said, “There’s a lot of back-and-forth right now, no one really knows if it’s going to happen tonight or if it’s going to happen in a week or so. Trump himself is the one who wants to do it ASAP. No one knows right now whether it’s happening tonight or not.”
While there are several other strong GOP candidates, including Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, Biden remains under the impression he could beat Trump – and he is the only Democrat who could – in a rematch of 2020.
Of course, it was during the 2020 election that a multitude of outside factors were revealed that influenced the results for Biden. One was the $400 million plus that Mark Zuckerberg handed out through foundations to local elections officials, who used the money to recruit voters from Democrat districts.
The other was the FBI’s political decision to lobby Big Tech to suppress accurate, but damaging, information about the Biden family’s business dealings just days before the election.
Polls and analysts have said either influence could have taken the victory away from President Trump and given it to Joe Biden.
