Trump Told Allies He’s Considering Announcing 2024 Presidential Bid Early, Sources Say
It has been discovered that former President Trump has privately told friends and associates that he is considering making an announcement about a 2024 presidential candidacy as early as this summer.
The New York Times was the first to disclose that Trump is considering a political comeback and could announce another presidential run as early as the summer.

Trump’s thoughts on a possible run in 2024 are still developing. Three sources close to Trump spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were discussing internal deliberations and said that no final decision had been made on whether to run and, if so, when to launch such a bid. Spokespeople for Trump did not immediately reply to a request for comment on Sunday.
Still, Republican associates of Trump and former White House and campaign officials said that they feel an early entrance for another White House candidacy for Trump is a possibility. A month ago, the former president made his annual seasonal transfer from Florida’s Mar-a-Lago to New Jersey’s Bedminster.
According to interviews with several people who have recently spoken with Trump, the president and his inner circle of senior advisers are currently plotting out how Trump may announce a 2024 campaign as soon as this summer or as late as after the midterm elections this year. Traditionally, major-party presidential candidates wait until far after the fall elections before launching into presidential campaign mode.
This year, many Republicans intended to concentrate on economic issues, particularly the high inflation that is putting stress on families’ budgets across the country. Trump’s relentless drumbeat of election fraud allegations since losing to Joe Biden in 2020 could divert some contenders’ attention away from their own platforms if he were to enter the race early. Some Republican officials also worry a pre-midterm entry would let Democrats frame the 2022 cycle into a referendum on Trump.
While many believe the former president will make an official announcement of his candidacy in the coming months. One former senior campaign official said he would only believe it was occurring if Trump mounted the escalator at Trump Tower in New York again.
According to many close to Trump, his anger over the broadcast House committee hearings on January 6 is driving him to run again, and he may make an announcement shortly. According to some close to Trump, the president believes he can best defend himself because the Republicans aren’t doing a good job.
Last week, Trump was questioned by Newsmax, about how much of the January 6 committee hearings were about “preventing you from running again in 2024.”
“I think a lot of it is,” Trump responded. “I am leading in all the polls — against Republicans and Democrats. I am leading in the Republican polls in numbers that no one has ever even seen before. And against Biden, and anyone else they run, I am leading against them.”
“At the right time, I will be saying what I want to do,” Trump said of a potential 2024 announcement.
Trump has gone further than mere teasing at rallies during this midterm season in suggesting that he would run for reelection.
“This is the year we’re going to take back the House, we’re going to take back the Senate, and we’re going to take back America. And in 2024, most importantly, we are going to take back our magnificent White House,” during a recent event in Illinois supporting Republican candidates Rep. Mary Miller and former state Sen. Darren Bailey, who is running for governor, Trump said in a common refrain. Primary elections were held on Tuesday, and both candidates emerged victorious.
