The anti-American, permanent-state establishment may have been able to deprive Donald Trump of his second term by hook and by crook, but they haven’t stopped him from being an important and influential force in politics. People are still listening to the things he says. Massive crowds are still attending his rallies, and when he speaks – his political allies are emboldened while his political opponents are troubled.
Recently, Trump made a statement that Mitch McConnell has made some dire missteps, giving Democrats an advantage over the debt ceiling. He said McConnell helps the Left and that he isn’t fit to lead the party.
So the question on almost every voter’s mind is this: is Trump in the running for 2024?
On the other hand, we might consider Governors Ron DeSantis or Greg Abbott. They have overcome totalitarian mask mandates, lockdowns, and vaccine orders more than any other state governor, with a few close behind. DeSantis in particular has been both hailed and reviled for using “Trump-like” rhetoric when dealing with reporters.
The response to these kinds of actions and statements has shown conclusively that “Trumpism” is popular, and that Trump has a strong chance should he run in 2024.
But this is not a surprise. We know beyond any doubt that former vice president Joe Biden is nowhere near as popular as we are told he is, and his approval rating is dropping by the day.
So, what will Democrats do if Trump does indeed run again? We know they want to steal it. We know they will try to steal it if they can. But they will not be able to get away with the mail-in ballot fraud as easily, and they will not be able to leverage lockdown orders to force voting center observers out of polling centers.
If they are going to try to cheat, they will need to depend on vaccine mandates to successfully segregate voters, counters, and poll watchers. Whether or not they will be able to pull that off will depend on how far the country lets these mandates go.
Trump himself has dropped a few clues that he may intend to run, or that he may be considering it. Chances are that he will not give his intentions away sooner than he has to, especially if he intends to run. This might be the best indication that he will. If he was sure he will not, he would just say so.
But people close to him, like advisor Jason Miller, have predicted that Trump will in fact run in 2024, but not necessarily for president. Miller said, “I think in 2024 President Trump will run again. At least that is my hope,” he said. “But I don’t think it will be against Biden. I think it will be against Kamala Harris or maybe Gavin Newsom.”
We hope he runs for president and wins. But at the end of the day, any involvement in politics he and people like him have is a win for all Americans, whether they realize it or not.
