‘Get ready’: Trump says ‘very likely’ to run for president again in 2024
Donald Trump said at a rally in Sioux City, Iowa, last night that he is more likely than ever to run for president in 2024 – but did not commit to doing so.
“In order to make our country successful, safe and glorious, I will very, very, very likely do it again,” he said. “Get ready, that’s all I’m saying – very soon. Get ready.”
Among those warming up the crowd before the former president spoke was extremist Georgia congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Green, who got the crowd to boo Paul Pelosi saying he should have been armed and shot the man who attacked him. Pelosi was released from the hospital earlier Thursday.
Meanwhile, the judge presiding over New York Attorney General Letitia James’ fraud lawsuit against the Trump Organization and the Trump family has ruled that an independent monitor will oversee the company, limiting its ability to conduct business.
Additionally, CNN reports that with a 2024 Trump run looking likely, Justice Department officials have discussed the potential need for a special counsel for the Jan. 6 and Mar-a-Lago documents investigations. A flurry of activities is expected after the midterms.
