Former US President Donald Trump on Wednesday repeatedly evaded questions about his political future, saying it was “too early to say” whether he would run for another term as president in 2024.
According to The Hill, Newsmax host Greg Kelly tried three times to pin Trump on the 2024 issue, but the former president repeatedly refused. The former president’s remarks come after the US Senate acquitted Trump for the second time last week – this time for inciting the US Capitol uprising in January.
“It’s too early to say, but I see a lot of great polls out there …” said Trump, as quoted by The Hill.
“I won’t say yet [if I’m running again], but I have tremendous support and I look at polling numbers that go through the roof. … I am the only one charged and my numbers are rising, “added the former president.
The recently acquitted former president has been almost invisible since leaving the White House nearly a month ago. However, on Wednesday he appeared for a series of interviews to pay tribute to conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh, who died at the age of 70.
Despite the low profile, the former president issued a statement setting fire to Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell pledging to support the primary challenges facing establishment Republicans, whom he considers “weak and disloyal.” .
Those remarks came after McConnell beat Trump at the end of the impeachment trial, saying the former president was “practically and morally” responsible for the January 6 siege of the Capitol.
“The Republicans are soft. They only hit their own – like Mitch. … if he’s spent the same time hitting [Senate Majority Leader Charles] Schumer and Biden, the Republicans would be much better, “said Trump on Wednesday.
Trump also targeted his successor President Joe Biden for saying his predecessor hadn’t done enough to effectively distribute COVID-19 vaccines. Biden suggested that there was no vaccine when he took office. “He’s either not telling the truth or he’s gone mentally,” said the former president.
Trump said he is “looking into many different” ways to get back on social media after banning Twitter and Facebook following the violence that broke out at the US Capitol in January. “We’ll see what happens. We’re negotiating with a number of people, and there’s the other option of creating your own site,” he added.
