President Trump has told advisers that he is thinking about running again for president in 2024, two sources familiar with conversations with Axios.
Why is it important: This is the clearest sign that Trump understands that he lost the 2020 election to Joe Biden – even if the president continues to misstress that he is the real winner, that there was election fraud And his team will fight to the very court.
- Presidents are limited to serving two terms but they do not have to be consecutive.
- Trump and White House campaign officials could not be immediately reached for comment.
Be smart: Republican advisory aides likely to run in 2024 are apprehensive about the prospect of Trump running with the unusual influence he holds over the millions of GOP voters.
- Even four years after leaving office, he was still able to continue formally in the Republican primary election.
- That fact alone has been able to freeze the ambitions, fundraising, and staffing of individual candidates ̵1; and of the Republican National Committee as it seeks to rally and go beyond Trump.
Do not forget: On the day of his inauguration, in 2017, Trump filed the paperwork with the Federal Election Commission to qualify as a 2020 candidate.
