Florida Republican Senator Marco Rubio suggested it wouldn’t be impossible for President Donald Trump to run for President again in the 2024 election if pending election ultimately results in Joe Biden being inaugurated, describing Trump as the clear “frontrunner” for the Republican nomination if a situation were to occur.
“If he runs in 2024, he’ll certainly be the front-runner and will probably be the nominee,” Rubio told congressional pool reporters Tuesday. “But again I’m still being presumptuous here, we’re not even through with 2020.”
Axios has reported that the President has already discussed the possibility of running for a ‘comeback’ term in 2024 with friends and advisors, although he’s still in litigation regarding the outcome of the 2020 election.
President Trump would be 78 in 2024, slightly younger than Democrat candidate Joe Biden is now. It’s hard to imagine any Republican defeating Trump in a primary, who would be running as a former President with experience in the office. Rumors circulated on Thursday that President Trump could even announce he’s running for a comeback term by the end of the year while he’s still in office.
One President in American history served one term, was defeated by his opponent, and returned to serve another term as president four years after leaving office. That President was Democrat Grover Cleveland, who lost his 1888 bid for re-election to Republican Benjamin Harrison. Cleveland would ultimately go for a second round with Harrison in 1892, defeating his own successor and becoming the first American President to serve non-consecutive terms.
To be entirely clear, the results of the 2020 presidential election aren’t even finalized yet. There is pending litigation in several states, mandatory recounts, and possibly even state legislative processes to appoint electors to the electoral college. But Rubio is correct to point out that the first President ever without prior military or government service could very plausibly become to second president to serve non-consecutive terms.
Matt Gaetz Reveals that President Trump “Acts, Talks and Schemes” Like He’s Running in 2024
Gaetz is referring to private conversations with the President.
Florida Republican Matt Gaetz suggested that President Donald Trump is inclined to running to regain the presidency in the 2024 election, referring to private conversations he’s had with Trump since the 45th President left office. Gaetz revealed that President Trump “acts and talks and plans and schemes with me like he is 1000% running again,” speaking in a Clubhouse room to hundreds of Trump supporters.
Gaetz is known to be close to President Trump, and previously suggested that a Trump 2024 campaign is a real possibility. If Trump were to run for the presidency in 2024 and win, he’d become the first US President to serve non-consecutive terms in office since Democrat Grover Cleveland, who served in the late 19th century. Trump would enter office for the second time at the age of 78; seasoned for a President, but equivalent to Joe Biden himself ascending to the presidential throne for the first time at the same age.
With most of the obvious Republican contenders for the presidency lacking Donald Trump’s political charisma and established track record of policy successes as President, it’s hard to imagine any contender defeating Trump in a GOP primary.
Trump has declined to make a decision on a 2024 campaign yet, openly stating that it’s far too early to consider announcing a comeback campaign in phone call appearances on Fox News. Currently, the President is planning to vet and endorse candidates to advance his brand of “Make America Great Again” Republicanism, suggesting he’s finally soured on the Republican establishment after his final months in office.
If the President declines to run, it’s expected that the Republican primary will be largely dominated by traditional conservatives, with rhetorical allusions to Trump’s ‘America First’ vision and policy adherence to traditional Reaganite ideas.
