We are close to 2024 and Americans have been wondering if Trump is going to run for President.
The opinions are split; some say he will, and some say that his time at the White House is over.
It’s still not known if he it will happen or not. But there is some bad news for Trump’s fans coming from a former White House aide, claiming that Trump’s health might not allow him to run for President.
The former President has kept a low profile since leaving the White House. He now lives in Florida with his wife, Melania Trump and his son, Barron Trump.
Donald Trump – Presidential race
Right after losing the elections in 2020, rumors about him returning to elections in 2024 started.
Trump did not confirm nor deny the rumors, but he did tease a return to politics.
“The answer is I’m absolutely enthused,” Trump said. “I look forward to doing an announcement at the right time.
“As you know, it’s very early. But I think people are going to be very, very happy when I make a certain announcement,” Trump added. “You know for campaign finance reasons, you really can’t do it too early because it becomes a whole different thing.”
Back in May, Politico wrote on the subject: “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.”
Longtime Trump adviser Jason Miller also claimed that Trump will most likely run for President in 2024.
“It’s pretty clear that he’s running”
“I would say somewhere between 99 and 100 percent,” Miller said. “I think he is definitely running in 2024.”
He added: “I had a good conversation with him last night. I’m going to go see him in another couple of days here. He has not said the magical words to me, but if you talk to him for a few minutes it’s pretty clear that he’s running.”
His niece, Mary Trump is also certain that his uncle will be running for President.
“If you’d asked me if he’d run again in December, I would have said definitely not because he had just been humiliated and wouldn’t put himself in that position again,” she told Business Insider.
“But things have changed. He’s still spreading his ‘Big Lie,’” Mary Trump added, referring to a phrase used to describe Republican misinformation about the 2020 election.
“He’s also now spreading the second big lie. This is that the insurrection of January 6 wasn’t a big deal.”
In the 2020 race against Joe Biden, Trump used Joe’s health, and age against him.
It now seems like the tables are turning and these might be used against Trump in 2024.
Donald Trump – alarming health claims
According to Omarosa Manigault Newman (former White House aide), Trumps health might not be good enough to even run for president.
Speaking on MSNBC, as reported by The Hill, she suggested that Trump would benefit from speaking about how he’s actually feeling.
“I think, going into 2024, I’m really more concerned that Donald Trump hasn’t come forward and talked about his health,” she said.
“I don’t know if he will even be healthy enough to run in 2024, and I think he needs to come clean to the American people about where he is on that before getting into a very stressful and strenuous race for the White House,” she added.
Trump’s health questioned in October
Mary Trump also thinks that her uncle’s health and age might be of concearn.
“Remember, he’s 75, not in good health, and there are the criminal investigations into him,” she told Business Insider. “Hopefully, something will interfere with his ability to run but, if all things are equal, he will.”
After testing positive for COVID-19, the former President and The White House faced criticism for not declaring Trumps health problems.
This came as a schock to many mostly because it happened just a month before Trump faced Joe Biden in the 2020 election. Trump and the First Lady had to stay in quarantine for 2 weeks.
“I stood out front, and led.”
Dr. Sean Conley, the president’s doctor initially said that Trump did not need oxygen, then later took back what he said and admited that Trump recived oxygen.
“Late Friday morning when I returned to the bedside, President had a high fever and his oxygen saturation was transiently dipping below 94%,” Dr. Conley said.
“Given these two developments, I was concerned for possible rapid progression of the illness. I recommended the president we try some supplemental oxygen. See how he’d respond. He was fairly adamant that he didn’t need it.”
After 3 days of being hospitalized, the former president retured to the White House and declared that Corona Virus is nothing but a flu, and this also raised some eyebrows.
“You’re going to beat it [coronavirus],” Trump told his supporters upon arriving at the White House. “As your leader, I had to do that. I knew there’s danger to it, but I had to do it. I stood out front, and led.”
Even though Donald Trump was blessed with extra days, that was not the case for the many Americans that have lost the battle with the Virus.
In the US alone, more than 43 million cases have been reported, with 695,000 deaths confirmed as of October 5, 2021. This is according to the World Health Organization (WHO).
Donald Trump’s health ‘wasn’t as good’ as reported
Donald Trump returned to the White House after his Corona incident, but his health is not as good as it was before.
The New York Times reported that Trump’s health is even worse than what his spokesmans are willing to admit.
CNN sources said that the former presidents lungs are still suffering and that he might have to be put on a ventilator.
Lung infiltrates occur when “the lungs are inflamed and contain substances such as fluid or bacteria. Their presence, especially when a patient is exhibiting other symptoms, can be a sign of an acute case of the disease. They can be easily spotted on an X-ray or scan, when parts of the lungs appear opaque, or white,” according to CNN.
Melania Trump doesn’t want to be First Lady again
Although Trump is considering running for President again, it seems that he might not have the support from his wife.
According to close friends of Melania Trump, she is not excited to be the First Lady again, but would rather prefer a more private life.
“Being the First Lady again is not what she wants,” one person close to the Trump family told CNN.
“For her, it was a chapter — and it’s over, and that’s that.”
“You’re not going to see her at rallies or campaign events, even if he ‘officially’ says he’s running again,” another person said.
“Instead it’s going to be Lara (Eric Trump’s wife) or Kimberly Guilfoyle (Donald Trump Jr’s girlfriend). They have that same urge Trump has to run again; Melania absolutely does not.”
