Trump Again Hints At 2024 Presidential Run, Repeats False Election Claims. For the first time since leaving the White House 18 months ago, Donald Trump visited Washington on Tuesday. He gave a heated speech while giving strong clues that he would run for office again in 2024.
The 76-year-old Trump refrained from formally announcing his campaign but did list his ideas for the “next Republican president’s” top objectives.
I often say that I ran and won the first time, then I ran again and did much better, Trump stated. “We might have to repeat the process. We need to make our nation more orderly.
“In the upcoming weeks and months, I look forward to outlining many more specifics.”
The former vice president of the United States, Mike Pence, who is also thinking about running for president in 2024, spoke to a different conservative gathering in Washington a few hours before Trump took the stage at the right-wing America First Policy Institute.
Pence downplayed disputes with Trump during his speech at the Young America’s Foundation conference, saying that Americans should turn to the future rather than the past.

He stated, “I don’t know if the president and I disagree on issues. We might disagree on concentration, though.
Many of the topics from Trump’s successful 2016 campaign, such as illegal immigration and crime, were repeated in his 90-minute speech to the conservative America First Policy Institute.
Trump reaffirmed his fabrication that he had won the 2020 election and attacked the House committee looking into his supporters’ attack on the US Capitol on January 6 as being carried out by “political hacks and thugs.”
“The persecution of Donald Trump would stop immediately if I renounced my convictions, if I decided to remain silent, if I stayed at home and just took it easy,” he claimed. But I won’t act in that way. I am unable to carry out that action.
They truly want to hurt me, he added, “so I can’t come back and work for you.”
“And I don’t think that’s going to happen,” he added, prompting chants from the crowd of “Four more years!”
Cesspool of crime
Trump frequently attacked Democratic President Joe Biden, holding him responsible for the problems facing the nation.
He declared, “We are a nation in decline.” “We are a nation in decline.”
The biggest inflation in 49 years, according to Trump. “Gas prices have risen to the highest levels in our nation’s history.”
He charged that Biden had permitted a massive “invasion” of migrants to cross the southern border.
He continued, “Other nations very happily transfer all of their criminals into the United States currently through our open border.
“Every component of the Trump plan that produced the most secure border in history must immediately be implemented,” he insisted.
The United States, according to Trump, “is becoming a sewer of criminality.”
He declared, “We have blood, death, and pain on a magnitude that was previously unimaginable.” Record murder rates are being set in Democratic-run communities.
He charged that Biden had “surrendered in Afghanistan” and had permitted Russia to annex Ukraine.
If I had been your commander in chief, he declared, “It would never, ever, ever have happened.”
Since departing on his final Air Force One aircraft from Washington to Florida on January 20, 2018, Trump has continued to be the most divisive person in the nation, waging an extraordinary campaign to cast doubt on his expected loss to Biden in the 2020 presidential election.
Hearings in Congress about the January 6 takeover of the Capitol by a Trump mob and his attempts to rig the election have captivated Washington for weeks.
Trump appears certain that he can ride the Republican wave all the way to the White House in 2024, despite the fact that Biden’s support rating is now around 40% and Democrats are predicted to lose control of Congress in the midterm elections in November.
Fury directed at Trump is also generating momentum on the Democratic side as the midterm elections approach.
The House committee hearings have presented evidence that Trump oversaw an attempt to undermine US democracy, first by attempting to manipulate the election process covertly and then by inciting a crowd to attack lawmakers.
In response to claims that at 79, Biden is too elderly to consider running for reelection in 2024, he claims that the threat of another Trump candidacy is one of his primary motives.
Following Trump’s address, the president tweeted: “Call me old fashioned, but I don’t think encouraging a crowd that assaults a police officer is’respect for the law.'” The president then went after his predecessor.
You cannot support an uprising while supporting law enforcement, democracy, or the United States, said Biden.
