For many within the GOP, there has been but one question in regard to the 2024 election: Just when is Donald Trump going to make it official?
The former President has been hinting at another run for the White House from the moment he left it the first time, always with a wink and a nod. Tongue firmly planted in his cheek.
But now, as a few potential challengers began to bark on the sidelines, it sounds like the big dog is ready to howl.
Donald Trump is looking at a fall announcement for his 2024 presidential candidacy, according to a report. Citing two unnamed advisers to the former president, The Washington Post says Trump is looking at September as the ideal month to fire the starting gun on his bid to reclaim the White House.
The move would likely rile some of his close advisers.
He’s reportedly been advised for over a year not to announce his candidacy before the midterm elections in November, with Trump-backing strategists fearing he could be blamed for poor GOP results.
The move is likely aimed at freezing out Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who has played rather coy when asked about a potential bid for the presidency in 2024, but who has refused to rule one out either.
