Former President Donald Trump has been asked several times since leaving office if he plans to compete for re-election in 2024, and each time he has remained tight-lipped.
‘Now is not the time to say,’ he says, adding that he wants to wait and see how the Republican Party performs in the 2022 midterm elections.

Mark Meadows, the former president’s final chief of staff, has said that the former president “is more in that out” for 2024, but that doesn’t help much. We still don’t know, and we won’t know until Trump himself tells us.
Despite all the talk about a third Trump campaign, there hasn’t been much conjecture about who might join him at the top of the GOP ticket – specifically, would it be former Vice President Mike Pence?
On the fringes of the North Carolina Republican Convention over the weekend, Trump addressed that very subject, which is to say, he didn’t actually address it.
“Mike and I have a good connection, and we continue to have a good connection,” the former president added. “But it’s obviously too early to be talking about running mates.”
“I was dissatisfied with Mike on one point, which he understands and which some other people understand, but we had a great connection generally, and he’s a great guy.”
Pence’s failure to reject the Electoral College result on Jan. 6 is certainly what the former president was referring to. Some screamed “Hang Mike Pence!” during the breach of the US Capitol building after Vice President Mike Pence indicated he didn’t have the power to reverse Democrat Joe Biden’s election victory.
“On one account, I was unhappy, but it was a choice Mike made, and I want individuals to make their own judgments, which he did,” Trump added.
Pence’s failure to reject the Electoral College result on Jan. 6 is most likely what the former president was alluding to. After Vice President Mike Pence declared he didn’t have the power to reverse Democrat Joe Biden’s election triumph, some screamed “Hang Mike Pence!” during the breach of the US Capitol building.
“On one account, I was unhappy, but that was a choice that Mike made, and I want individuals to make their own judgments, which he did,” Trump added.
“As you are aware, President Trump and I have spoken on numerous occasions since we left office. And I’m not sure we’ll ever agree on anything on that day. However, I will always be proud of what we achieved for the American people over the last four years. And I will not let Democrats or their media allies to use one horrible day to delegitimize the hopes of millions of Americans,” he concluded.
Here’s some more to add to the mix: Trump has also mentioned sharing the ticket with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis in recent days.
“I sponsored Ron, and he blasted off like a rocketship when I endorsed him,” he continued. “As governor, he’s done a fantastic job. They adore what I read and what you read, I’m saying.
