The president of the United States would be planning his next presidential candidacy for 2024 secretly, this as a possible rematch against the victory of Democrat Joe Biden, according to The Washington Post.
According to the newspaper, the president seeks to publicly affirm that he won the elections on November 3 and is preparing for a second term; However, he is holding telephone conversations and private meetings in search of returning to the White House.
It is estimated that Trump could announce his presidential candidacy in the next three weeks, in order to freeze any other presidential aspiration, among which the current Vice President of the United States stands out, Mike Pence, the secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, and the former US ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley.
Several people close to the president, consulted by the newspaper, affirmed that Trump could dominate the Republican Party’s political agenda in the coming years, being a possible “moral leader” of the same on the way to the presidential elections in four years.
They assured that Trump would do a whole political campaign after leaving the White House, either as endorsement of other Republican candidates, being the leader of the party, as well as creating a political action committee to obtain funds for what could be his next presidential race. However, they reiterated that their decisions may still not materialize due to the changes in decisions that the president constantly makes.
Trump would also be looking for ways to earn income, be it with post-presidency rallies, television shows or his memoirs as a tenant of the White House, this in the face of the financial problems he will face ending his period full of debt.
“If you can (get) 30,000 people to show up and charge them $ 5, that’s real money,” said a Republican in frequent contact with the White House.
Republican strategist Brendan Buck told the newspaper that the president’s Twitter account will be key for his post-presidential term, as well as any action he may take after leaving the White House on January 20, 2021. Support among Republicans for Trump is more than 80 percent.
“His Twitter account, obnoxious as it is, is one of the most powerful tools he has, and he can take that with him,” Buck told the newspaper. “Let’s not pretend that his influence over the Republican Party was based on his government or his political views,” Buck said. “It was his ability to use his voice very loud and draw attention to himself, and that’s not going to change.”
