On Thursday (November 3), at an Iowa campaign event, former President Donald Trump teased his 2024 Presidential bid, telling supporters to “get ready.”
Trump told the crowd, “Get ready, that’s all I’m telling you.”
The former President also indicated that he was more than likely going to run for a third time.
“And now, in order to make our country successful and safe and glorious, I will very, very, very probably do it again, OK?” the former President stated, emphasizing, “Very, very, very probably.”
Trump also reiterated a common talking point, noting that he had received more votes the second time than during his first election bid.
“I did much better the second time than I did the first, getting millions more votes in 2020 than I got in 2016,” Trump said, comparing his statistics when running against President Joe Biden, compared to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Trump’s statements are objectively true, as the U.S. Census Bureau found 23 million more voters turned up to the 2020 general election than in the 2016 general election.
In 2020, Trump received 74 million votes, approximately 11 million more than the roughly 63 million votes he received in 2016.
But Trump lost the election as Biden won the Presidency with 81 million votes and the Electoral College vote.
Trump has repeatedly flirted with a 2024 run, and with the midterm elections less than a week away, many pundits speculate he’ll announce his run for the Presidency shortly after the midterms.
