President Trump effectively went radio silent after he left the White House. But it didn’t take long before he reemerged.
The historically successful president waited a month before speaking out. He broke his silence on Newsmax, during a phone interview.
They didn’t shy away from the big questions. And Trump, when asked about a possible 2024 run, answered in his trademark style.

2024?: Donald Trump on whether he will run for president again, “I won’t say yet, bet we have tremendous support.” @GregKellyUSA http://nws.mx/tv
When asked about running again, Trump wouldn’t make a formal announcement just yet. But he did talk about his “tremendous support.”
He is likely referring to in-party polls that reveal Trump’s approval among Republicans still high. In fact, post impeachment, Trump’s approval appears only to be climbing among conservatives.
Contrast that with the approval of numerous Republicans currently in office. Mitch McConnell’s approval is in the toilet, hovering in the mid-teens.
And those Republicans that voted against Trump? Most have been censured, with rivals preparing to primary in the upcoming elections.
Anyone who has been paying attention won’t be surprised at Trump’s ongoing popularity among Republicans (and probably more than a few outside the party).
Democrats worked overtime to tarnish his reputation post-election for a reason. They fear Trump’s continuing influence in America, especially in politics. If they could put the blame for January 6 on him—and bar him from politics via impeachment—then maybe, just maybe, Americans would move on.
Doesn’t look to be the case.
Trump was quiet on whether or not he’d run again. Honestly, he doesn’t have to decide right away. But if he did, there’s good reason the same 75,000,000 voters would back him again.
After all, he did what few presidents actually ever could: put Americans first.
In just a few more months, I’m sure even liberals will be begging for a Bidenectomy.
- Donald Trump broke his silence since leaving office in his first interview.
- He said he hasn’t decided if he’d run again, but he’s watching the polls.
- Trump is enjoying rising approval among Republicans, post-impeachment.
