Donald Trump Says There Is 'Hope' for 2024 Run

Former President Donald Trump has said his supporters should have "hope" that he will run for the White House again in 2024 but he did not formally announce his intention to enter the race.

Trump spoke to his daughter-in-law Lara Trump on Tuesday in an 18-minute interview for her podcast The Right View. He reiterated his complaint that he should have won the 2020 election and criticized President Joe Biden.

Lara Trump, who is married to the former president's son, Eric Trump, asked about a possible third run for the presidency. Recent polling showed Trump is highly favored among Republicans for the party's 2024 nomination.

"The other question people all want to know—and I know you're not ready to answer it yet—but do we have hope that there's a possibility to see Donald Trump run again in 2024?" Lara Trump asked.

"You do have hope, that I can tell you," Trump said. "You do have hope. We love our country—this country. We all owe a lot to our country but now we have to help our country."

"And we were there. We were so good. What we did with Iran, what we did with China," Donald Trump said. "We were all set to do some great things. And then you see what's going on right now."

Donald Trump cited his relationship with China and North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, comparing his approach favorably to the Biden administration's policy.

Lara Trump reiterated the idea of a possible third campaign. "So we may see a Trump run again in 2024 . Stay tuned, ladies and gentlemen," she said.

Earlier in the interview, the former president was asked about the possibility of rallies. His public rallies were popular among his supporters but were curtailed in part due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

"Will we ever be able to attend another Trump rally?" Lara Trump asked.

"Oh yeah, sure, I think so," Donald Trump said. "In fact, we're thinking about doing one relatively soon just to let everybody know that there's hope in the future."

Any 2024 presidential campaign would likely involve large rallies that were a feature of Trump's previous races. The former president offered no further information on any upcoming events.

A Politico-Morning Consult poll last month showed that Republicans favored Trump for the 2024 nomination, with 54 percent of GOP voters saying they would support Trump in their party's primary. A higher number—59 percent—said they wanted Trump to play a prominent role in the party.
