Citing Biden’s catastrophic withdrawal from Afghanistan, which Trump called the “greatest embarrassment in the history of our country,” Trump said the country is “getting to a point where we really have no choice” but to launch another campaign.
“It is disgraceful,” he told Fox News. “When you look at Afghanistan and what happened, and the death for no reason, just for no reason.”
Biden is an “incompetent person” and his administration is “divisive,” Trump added, referring to Biden’s recent employer vaccine mandate.
“They keep telling everyone how they want to get together, to be inclusive – they’re not inclusive,” he explained. “They are very, very dividing and divisive.”
Trump has hinted at another presidential run several times but has not yet officially announced anything.
Over the weekend, he was asked by a group of law enforcement officials at an event honoring the 20th anniversary of 9/11 about another potential campaign, to which Trump reportedly replied: “I think you’re going to be happy.”
In June, Trump said that he had made up his mind whether to run, but wouldn’t announce until the time was right.
“Where are you in the process, or — let me ask you this, without giving the answer … have you made up your mind?” Fox News host Sean Hannity asked Trump.
“Yes,” he replied.
However, a recent poll found that GOP voters are divided over whether they would support Trump again if he does launch another presidential bid.
Asked whether they would pick Trump to top the GOP ticket in 2024, 51% said yes but 48% said they believe a different candidate would be better for the success of the Republican Party.
