On Saturday, former President Trump said that he will “probably” have to run for president again, which could mean he will face Vice President Biden again in 2024.
At a rally for Republicans in Robstown, Texas, Trump kept saying that he had already won the 2020 election, which was not true.
“Twice, I ran.” “Twice,” he said, “I won.” “The second time I did it, I did much better than the first time.”
The former president said that he got “millions more votes in 2020 than in 2016” and “far more votes than any president in our country’s history.”
“And now,” he said as he wrapped up, “if I want our country to be successful, safe, and beautiful again, I will almost certainly have to do it again.”
As soon as the 45th president finished speaking, people started chanting “We want Trump!”
His comments about possibly running for president in 2024 came just days after he was asked to testify by a House committee looking into the Capitol incident on January 6, 2021.
The subpoena asks him to turn over the relevant documents by November 4 and to testify on or around November 14. Multiple sources told The Hill earlier this year that Trump and his supporters were thinking about saying something about his campaign before the midterm elections in November.

Trump hasn’t officially started his campaign for president in 2024. If he did, the Federal Election Commission would make it harder for him to talk about his finances and give him less money from individual donors before November 2024.
A Harvard CAPS-Harris Poll that came out on Monday says that Trump has a 2-point lead over his possible successor in 2024. 45 percent of Americans say they would vote for the former president for a second term in 2024, while 43 percent say they would vote for Biden.
