President Trump is reportedly considering kicking off his 2024 campaign during President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration, The Daily Beast reports.
Three people familiar with the conversations told the news outlet that the president has been discussing the specifics of a campaign launch with close advisers and confidants.
Two sources said that Trump has floated the idea of a 2024-related event during Biden’s inauguration week, possibly on Inauguration Day if his legal efforts to overturn the 2020 election fail.
The Hill has reached out to the White House and Trump’s re-election campaign for comment.
Bloomberg reported on Thursday that Trump said he planned to run in 2024 if his attorneys could not overturn the results of the 2020 election, The Daily Beast notes. A possible 2024 bid has some support from GOP voters.
One poll from Seven Letter Insight found that 66 percent of Republican voters would support the president running in 2024. A separate Morning Consult-Politico Poll found that 54 percent would vote for the president in a 2024 primary.
