Donald Trump delivered a direct answer when asked if he’s running in 2024.
“I don’t think we’re going to have a choice,” Trump told Fox News after being asked if he’ll return in 2024.
“It is disgraceful,” Trump said about the Biden administration.
“When you look at Afghanistan and what happened, and the death for no reason, just for no reason,” Trump said, adding that military “parents – they want to speak with me – they don’t want to speak with Biden.”
“They’re just devastated,” he said.
“It is getting to a point where we really have no choice,” he added.
Trump was referring to California Gold Star mother Shana Chappell whose 20-year-old son — marine lance corporal Kareem Nikoui — died among the 13 U.S. troops killed in the bomb blast on Aug. 26.
Chappell said, “I would love if somehow my President (you Mr. Trump) could be present as I lay my Beautiful baby boy Lance Cpl. Kareem Nikoui to rest.”
“It would be such an honor to meet the real President of the United States of America, President Trump,” she continued. “I love you and America loves you.”
Other gold star family members also spoke out. Kathy McCollum, the mother of fallen 20-year old Marine Rylee McCollum, said Biden is a “feckless, dementia-ridden piece of crap” who “sent her son to die.”
Ryan’s sister, Cheyenne McCollum, also courageously spoke out against Biden despite a warning from the Office of Naval Intelligence to active duty and retired military personnel not to “disrespect” Biden.
Craig Gross, the father of 25-year-old fallen army corporal Frank Robert Gross, also criticized Biden by saying, “I would wish that you would quit blaming this on other people, take the responsibility, quit passing the buck.”
“Quit blaming this on the former president of the United States of America. You are culpable,” Gross said. “You alone. The buck stops at your desk,” he emphasized.
A new poll conducted by Emerson College shows Donald Trump would defeat Joe Biden in a 2024 rematch.
Emerson College conducted the poll during and immediately after the final U.S. service members left Afghanistan. Trump is favored by 47% of respondents while only 46% chose Biden.
Biden’s overall approval rating dropped from 49% in February to 46%. Against Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, the Emerson Poll shows Biden is stronger with a 48% to 36% edge.
However, the poll indicates that Trump and Biden are the preferred candidates for their respective party in 2024. 67% of Republicans said they would vote for Trump in the GOP primary, the poll shows.
Director of Emerson College Polling, Spencer Kimball, said, “Historically, this data reminds me of 1912 when Teddy Roosevelt failed to win the Republican nomination from then-President Taft and created a third party dooming the Republican chances against Woodrow Wilson.”
Another recent survey found that 69 percent of polled Americans disapprove of Biden’s handling of the U.S.’s military presence in Afghanistan.
NBC News and the Wall Street Journal show only 46% of Independents approve of Biden, which is down from 61% in April. In just over three months, Biden managed to nosedive by 15 percentage points.
A new poll finds the majority of likely voters do not think President Joe Biden will even finish his term.
A majority also say Vice President Kamala Harris is unfit to replace him. Rasmussen Reports explained, “Most voters believe it’s likely that President Joe Biden won’t finish out his term of office, and don’t think Vice President Kamala Harris is ready to step up to replace him.”

People are pretty fed up with the Biden administration and while President Joe Biden’s stock is falling with the American people, former President Donald Trump’s only seems to be rising. While expletive-filled chants can be heard echoing through sporting events, cheers in favor of Trump are what greets him.
So the question on everyone’s mind is whether or not Trump will run again in 2024. He already told us he’d be back, but we never knew in what capacity he was talking about. Some speculated it was to be president, others that he would possibly create his own news network or social media company.
Things can still change between now and then, but it would appear that as of now, Trump is already eyeing his former seat. Normally, this kind of talk could be shrugged off. Very rarely does a former loser come back only to retake their seat, especially if that seat is in the Oval Office. Trump, however, is a different story.
