This is the thing that will give the Democrats many sleepless nights, and will keep them turning in their beds while trying to sleep. President Trump knows how to play with his enemies.
In a new interview on Friday, former President Donald Trump spoke out about 2024, stating that an announcement about another potential presidential run is on its way “in the not too distant future.”
While calling into Newsmax TV’s “Wake Up America,” he said that he wants “a little time to go by” and follow what happens in the midterm elections in 2022. Until that time comes, the former President is determined to help Republicans get elected, confront the deep state, and take on the radical left.
On the question if he is planning to play “king” or “kingmaker” in 2024, he answered, “I think you’re going to be thrilled. I think you’re going to be very happy. We want a little time to go by, maybe watch what happens in ’22. We are giving tremendous endorsements. Rick, I think we are 128-2 in endorsements.”
“I’ll be making an announcement in the not too distant future,” Trump added. “Right now, I’m helping a lot of people get into office, and we’re fighting the deep state, and we’re fighting radical left. They’re after me. They’re after Rudy. … They’re after anybody. They’re vicious. They’re vicious, and they don’t do a good job, and they’re very bad for the country. But I’ve been fighting them for five and a half years since I came down the escalator — I’ve been fighting them. But these are vicious people. And I honestly believe they don’t love this country.”
He was asked if he predicts that Joe Biden will lose in 2024, and he replied, “Well, based on what’s happening with inflation, don’t forget you haven’t seen the kill of inflation. You see inflation happening, but you haven’t seen what it does.”
The former president then said that he thinks that inflation will “top” the rates it hit under former President Jimmy Carter.
“I was there with Jimmy Carter, meaning I was one of the people that was, you know, working in this country at the time,” Trump said. “And prime rate went up to 21% and the inflation was devastating. That was the worst. I mean, that was as bad as it gets … We’re going to top those numbers, so we’re going to come pretty close to topping those. Now look, we’re in for a period where lumber costs you twice as much now, where, you know, when I left it was $1.87 a gallon for gasoline, $1.87, now it’s $3.50.”
