FORMER President Donald Trump hinted at a presidential run in 2024 on Tuesday evening, claiming fans will be “very happy” when he makes a “certain announcement.”
Speaking to Candace Owens’ Daily Wire talk show, Trump, in a pre-recorded interview, stated, “The answer is I’m absolutely enthused,” when asked about a potential run.

The former president added: “I look forward to doing an announcement at the right time.”
“As you know, it’s very early. But I think people are going to be very, very happy when I make a certain announcement.”
Though stopping short, had Trump officially declared his candidacy, he would be required to disclose his finances, and election laws would dictate how he could spend his money until the election.
“You know for campaign finance reasons, you really can’t do it too early because it becomes a whole different thing,” Trump told Owens. “Otherwise I think I’d give you an answer that you’d be very happy with.”
“So we’re looking at that very, very seriously,” he continued. “All I’d say is: stay tuned.”
Owens joked about joining Trump as his vice president on the 2024 ticket, an idea the ex-president described as “fantastic”.
“What a good choice that would be,” he said. “That would be fantastic. You would be fantastic.”
Owens responded: “I guess I’ll take you at your word, that in 2024 Trump and Owens are going to be on the ticket.”
Last week sources close to Trump told CNN he has initiated conversations with advisers about restarting his signature Make America Great Again rallies.
Having told Owens his decision would be confirmed “at the right time”, Trump previously suggested to Don Bongino that the announcement would be made after the 2022 midterm races conclude.
“So I’m giving it very serious consideration,” Trump said on Bongino’s podcast.

“If you do it, I think probably the most appropriate time would be right after the ’22 election, that’s my opinion. Could do it sooner, but I think right after the election would be good, especially if you have a good election.”
