WaPo: Trump Mulling September Announcement For 2024 Presidential Run


TheWashington Post is reporting that former President Donald Trump is mulling announcing his run for a second term in the Oval Office in September. WaPo states: "The former president is now eyeing a September announcement, according to two Trump advisers, who like some others interviewed for this article spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe private conversations. One confidant put the odds at “70-30 he announces before the midterms.” And others said he may still decide to announce sooner than September."

  • The article states that a number of Republicans want to see Trump announce his candidacy in advance of the midterm elections in November in an effort to drive GOP turnout an take control of the House and Senate, believing that his announcement would boost their own support by a greater degree than it would anti-Trump groups of the electorate.
