In his first sit-down interview since leaving the White House, former President Trump told Fox News’s Sean Hannity that he is “very seriously” considering running for president again in 2024. Trump stopped short of making any concrete confirmation on his political plans but said his potential campaign will be dependent on if the Republican Party can get “the right people” in the Senate and the House of Representatives.
Fox News reports:
Hannity asked Trump what he misses most about the presidency in the three months since departing the White House.
“I miss the most, helping people,” Trump responded. “That’s why I did it. Look, this has been very traumatic. I had a great life, great company, great business, no problems and now all I do is, people go after you. It’s vicious, it’s horrible but you know what? I loved doing it because I helped people. And I’ve helped them more than any president.”
Trump said he considers his $1.5 trillion package of corporate and individual tax cuts among his greatest accomplishments and added that he hopes the Biden administration won’t “screw it up.”
Pressed for a third time on the possibility of running for office at the conclusion of Biden’s first term, Trump responded, “First of all, it’s [in] a long time.
Trump also noted during the interview that he is heavily involved in campaigning on the behalf of Republicans for next year’s midterm elections. “If they need a rally, we’ll do a rally, we’ll do calls, we’ll do all sorts of things,” Trump told Hannity. Trump has already issued a slew of endorsements for next year’s election cycle.
