I will ‘very probably’ run for White House again in 2024, says Trump

Mr Trump was speed-dialling confidantes to hash out possible scenarios as he looks to benefit from expected Republican wins in Tuesday's midterm elections.

Controversial former United States President Donald Trump has said he will “very probably” launch a third bid for the office of the President this month.

“And now, in order to make our country successful and safe and glorious, I will very, very, very probably do it again,” Mr Trump said of a 2024 bid during a rally in Iowa on Thursday.

“Get ready, that’s all I’m telling you, very soon. Get ready.”

Three Trump advisers reportedly confirmed that the former president was considering a fresh bid.

Mr Trump was speed-dialling confidantes to hash out possible scenarios as he looks to benefit from expected Republican wins in Tuesday’s midterm elections.

They said it was possible the former president could still delay a decision or change his mind.

One source said he intended to announce his re-election campaign shortly after Tuesday’s elections and had been sounding out potential staff.

Mr Biden’s public approval rating has remained below 50 per cent for more than a year, coming in at 40 per cent in a recent Reuters/Ipsos poll.

Mr Trump faces a series of investigations, including a Justice Department inquiry into classified documents he took from the White House after leaving office, some of which prosecutors say have not yet been recovered.
