Former President Donald Trump told a crowd in Texas on Saturday night that he will “probably have to do it again” as he looks to make another run for the US presidency in 2024.
“I ran for office twice. I won twice. I did much better the second time than I did before,” Trump told a crowd of thousands who gathered to hear him speak in Robstown, Texas. “Getting millions more votes in 2020 than in 2016, and getting more votes than any sitting president in our nation’s history. And now, to make our country successful, safe, and glorious again, I’ll probably have to do it. again.”
“The silent majority is back stronger than ever,” Trump said at the end of the rally as dramatic music played. “My fellow citizens, this incredible journey we are on together has only just begun.”
The announcement marks one of the strongest hints yet that Trump intends to run for president again after months of speculation and questions about the best time to make an official announcement.

“If President Trump was central to the January 6th Committee meeting, why are they ending with him instead of starting with him?” Conway said Friday. “With weeks to go before the midterm elections and months before Republicans take control of a majority in Congress, reasonable people could be justified in viewing this subpoena as something between token and suspicious.”
