The former president was in Iowa, telling rallygoers to ‘vote Republican in a giant red wave’
“And now, in order to make to make our country successful, and safe, and glorious, I will very, very, very, probably do it again, okay?” Trump said. “Very, very, very probably.”
The crowd at the rally cheered in response, erupting in chants of “Trump! Trump! Trump!”
“That’s nice, well, get ready, that’s all I’m telling you, very soon,” Trump said. “Get ready.”
The Iowa rally was the first of Trump’s four campaign rallies ahead of the election. He is scheduled to travel to Latrobe, Pennsylvania on Nov. 4, followed by Miami, Florida on Nov. 6, and Vandalia, Ohio on election eve.
Trump has been hinting for months about a 2024 White House run, though he hasn’t made any official announcement. During a rally in Texas late last month, Trump said he “will probably have to do it again” next year.
Earlier on Thursday, Trump’s former senior counselor, Kellyanne Conway, said she expected Trump to “announce soon” that he is seeking another term as president, during an event by the Christian Science Monitor.
Jason Miller, the founder of the social media app Gettr and former Trump adviser, told “Just the News, No Noise” TV show on Oct. 31 that he expects Trump to announce his 2024 bid after the midterm elections.
“I hear him make a little noise. It could be pretty soon after the midterms,” Miller said. “My gut tells me it’s going to be a little closer to the first of the year or maybe even just after the first of the year.”
