Democrats and Republicans are waiting on Donald Trump to make his political intentions clear.
Trump gave the strongest hint yet which way he was leaning.
And Donald Trump responded with one word when Sean Hannity asked if he was running in 2024.
Donald Trump held a town hall event with Sean Hannity as part of a trip to the southern border with Texas Governor Greg Abbott.
Cracking down on illegal immigration and building a wall was one of the signature policies of the Trump administration.
But after the November election, a surge in illegal immigration began by citizens in the Northern Triangle countries who picked up on Joe Biden’s intention to throw open the borders.
In the month of May, the Border Patrol intercepted 180,000 illegal aliens trying to sneak into the country.
That was the largest number of attempted illegal border crossings in 20 years.
Trump’s trip to the border to revive one of his signature issues was seen as the first step towards a political comeback in 2024.
Towards the end of the town hall event, Hannity broached the subject of a third White House bid with Trump.
But first, Hannity asked the crowd in attendance if they wanted to see Trump run for president again.
“Let me ask the crowd. Of everybody here, would you like to see the president run again in 2024?” Hannity asked the crowd.
The people in attendance responded by cheering wildly.
Then Hannity moved to ask Trump if Trump made up his mind about running for president in 2024.
“You’re not going to answer, but I have to ask. Where are you in the process — or — let me ask you this, without giving the answer – what the answer is — have you made up your mind?” Hannity asked.
Trump’s answer was simple and direct.
“Yes,” Trump shot back.
Donald Trump running for president in 2024 would change the calculus for both parties.
If Trump runs for president in 2024, Republicans like Ron DeSantis, Ted Cruz, Tom Cotton, Josh Hawley and other much-talked-about presidential prospects in the GOP are likely to take a pass and wait for 2028.
Trump running in 2024 will also likely scramble the Democrats’ plans.
Democrats may force Joe Biden to run for re-election at age 82 thinking Biden is the only Democrat that can beat Trump.
Polls show Kamala Harris’ favorability rating underwater, and Harris’ disastrous performance as border czar leaves many Democrats questioning Harris’ ability to lead the ticket in three years.
Trump previously stated that he will announce his 2024 intentions after next year’s midterm elections.
And from his response to Sean Hannity, Trump already knows what the decision will be.
