Donald Trump teases 2024 run and says fans will be 'happy' with announcement'

Former President Donald Trump gave the biggest indication yet that he may make a bid for the Oval Office in 2024 by saying that his supporters will be ‘very happy’ when he makes ‘a certain announcement’.

Trump teased a potential run in an episode of ‘Candace’, conservative firebrand Candace Owens’ Daily Wire talk show, that was set to air Tuesday night.

On the question of 2024, Trump said, ‘The answer is I’m absolutely enthused.’

‘I look forward to doing an announcement at the right time,’ Trump said. ‘As you know, it’s very early, but I think people are going to be very, very happy… when I make a certain announcement.’

The 45th president continued that ‘for campaign finance reasons, you really can’t do it too early because it becomes a whole different thing’, but that ‘otherwise I’d give you an answer that I think you’d be very happy with.’

Trump concluded: ‘So we are looking at that very, very seriously. And uh, all I’ll say is stay tuned!’

Owens replied, ‘Well, I guess we’ll take you at your word’, and then hit at the possibility of running with him as vice president.

‘That means that in 2024, Trump and Owens are going to be on the ticket!’ she quipped.

During her show, Owens, who is black and a vocal Trump proponent, asked Trump point-blank that if he does run, ‘can I be your vice president?’

Back in February, Owens tweeted that she was ‘thinking about running for President’ and received backlash from social media users including a comment that the Republican Party is an ‘authoritarian white nationalist party’ that would never nominated her.

Trump said the idea of running with Owens was ‘very interesting’.

‘Wow. What a good choice that would be,’ Trump said. ‘That would be fantastic.’

Trump has hinted at another presidential run in several recent interviews. In mid-February, a Politico-Morning Consult poll showed that most Republicans considered Trump their top candidate for 2024.
