According to a Sunday report from Politico, those familiar with Trump’s thinking believe he will keep teasing a potential 2024, but doubt he will actually seek office again.
“I think nothing is going to happen,” a person close to the commander-in-chief said, adding that “he won’t be around in 2024. He’s not going to run. He’s going to f*ck around and say he’s going to run … He’ll tease.”
Trump has reportedly “cooled” to the idea of running again in four years because formally declaring candidacy for office would require him to disclose financial information.
Being that New York investigators are probing the president’s business dealings to establish whether he improperly inflated his assets, he has become wary about launching a comeback campaign, according to people familiar with the matter.
