(CNN)The 2024 election is still 1,155 days away — I counted — but, according to one senior aide to Donald Trump, the former president is all-but-certain to run again.
“I would say somewhere between 99 and 100 percent,” Jason Miller told Cheddar earlier this month when asked about the chances that Trump runs again. “I think he is definitely running in 2024.”
Which sounds, well, sort of definitive — ahem — right?
Then there’s this from Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan during a stop in Iowa — eyes emoji! — last week. “I think he’s gonna run,” Jordan said of Trump. “I want him to run. He’s proven he can take the heat.
Now, Trump himself hasn’t been as conclusive but he has made very clear he is leaning toward getting into the 2024 race. As Politico wrote in May:
“Trump is confiding in allies that he intends to run again in 2024 with one contingency: that he still has a good bill of health, according to two sources close to the former president. That means Trump is going to hang over the Republican Party despite its attempts to rebrand during his exile and its blockade of a Trump-centric investigation into January’s insurrection.”
