As it stands right now, no one is quite sure whether or not Donald Trump will be running for President again in 2024, at least not technically, but there have been some rather obvious hints over the course of the last several months.
Trump has been hinting at a run for a while now, but sources close to the former President have suggested that he wait until after the midterm elections to make it official, in case the Democrats want to use him as a boogeyman in that contest.
But this week, as Trump continues to face the repercussions of an unprecedented FBI raid on his home in Florida, he has suggested that he will run again, and if he’s elected, those imprisoned for crimes relating to January 6th, 2021 would be pardoned.
Former president Donald Trump said he would issue full pardons and a government apology to rioters who stormed the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, and violently attacked law enforcement to stop the democratic transfer of power.
“I mean full pardons with an apology to many,” he told conservative radio host Wendy Bell on Thursday morning. Such a move would be contingent on Trump running and winning the 2024 presidential election.
Trump, during his conversation with Bell on Thursday morning, also said that he met with some Jan. 6 defendants in his office this week and that he is helping some financially.Advertisement - story continues below
“I am financially supporting people that are incredible and they were in my office actually two days ago, so they’re very much in my mind,” Trump said. “It’s a disgrace what they’ve done to them. What they’ve done to these people is disgraceful.”
The move will likely be spun by the liberal left to suggest that Trump is pushing for more lawlessness, similarly to the way in which the mainstream media attempted to turn a recent prediction by Senator Lindsey Graham into some sort of “call to arms”.
