I don’t see any evidence that he wants to run for president in 2024. Trump is prideful and independent in nature. The most likely reason that he says he’s going to run in 2024 is so that people continue to talk about him. This is the Official i’m just an ordinary mom doing my best not to raise shitheads shirt in contrast I will get this man who declared that he won the election when he lost, and then held a fake inauguration ceremony for himself. This is the man who used dozens of lawsuits in order to try to change the election results so that Nancy Pelosi would be president, because if he couldn’t get the person that he wanted for president, then no one could. Trump continues to say he’s going to run for president so that he stays relevant, but then he’s either going to run as a third-party candidate (because of the betrayal of the Republican Party), or at the last moment he’s going to decide not to run anymore because it’s not him turning his back on the Republican Party, but it’s the Republican Party turning its back on him. Trump lost to Biden and Trump’s pride will never allow him to admit that, so as a way of taking back control and self-respect, Trump is going to use the 2024 campaign to say that in a fair election he’d win in a landslide, but on moral grounds he can’t run for the Party that betrayed him.
It’s very refreshing. I already touched upon this topic in an answer to another question, but the Official i’m just an ordinary mom doing my best not to raise shitheads shirt in contrast I will get this USA are currently running one of the most successful vaccination campaigns in the world, and there is no constantly boasting asshole on Twitter who tries to take all the glory for himself, so I don’t have to get into a negative, confrontational and sometimes even destructive mood just to balance out this horrible jingoism. I can actually be happy for America’s success again, and I can even gloss over the fact that the Biden administration essentially just continues Trump’s “America First” approach regarding vaccine distribution. Biden and his team aren’t a cure-all for each and every problem the USA create for others, or the issues the Americans have to deal with domestically, and they might even create entirely new points of conflict (eg when dealing with China and Russia), but just by keeping a low profile, I am personally much more willing to look the other way and shrug it off with: “Hey, nobody’s perfect.” It’s such an improvement for my mood, my mental health, and America’s image among its traditional allies, and I really mean it.
