"99% Likely" Desperate Donald Trump Will Run For President Again, Says Advisor
"I would say somewhere between 99 and 100 percent. I think he is definitely running in 2024…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."

One thing Donald Trump seemed to really appreciate about the presidency was his (proclaimed) immunity from prosecution. As the net tightens around his family and business, it seems he might be desperate to regain that protection, and another chance to save himself financially.

Will Trump ever be prosecuted for his role in the January 6th attack on the U.S. Government? Experts differ on whether charges would stick, and whether they're absolutely necessary to prevent the next attack, or too risky to try.

Still, things don't seem to be going well for the ex-president. Several of his top employees are facing charges — the Trump Organiaztion and CFO Allen Weisselberg was indicted, his security chief, Matthew Calamari Jr., has been subpoenaed to testify before a Grand Jury, and tenants are fleeing his Trump Tower property.

Now, his advisor, Jason Miller, says that Trump will run for President again in 2024, and that while it's not official, he says he can state this with "99 to 100 percent" certainty.

Mediaite reports that Miller said he'd just talked to Trump recently, and described his state of mind about a campaign:


"I would say somewhere between 99 and 100 percent. I think he is definitely running in 2024…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."

Still, it all has the air of the "reinstatement" claims the former president's proxies were making on his behalf, insisting that he planned to be back in the White House before the end of summer, or the ridiculous notions his supporters floated about making him Speaker of the House, then impeaching President Joe Biden and VP Kamala Harris — a lot of oversized boasts with no facts or actions to back them up.

There was a story yesterday that Jim Jordan had claimed that he had been told that Trump was running.  Trump's camp denied the claim and Jordan subsequently walked it back.

Trump will run because he is addicted to having everyone pay attention to everything he says. The only way to ensure this is to either be president of the United States or be a top candidate for the office.

Yup. Trump will run, but it will be 100% for his ego.

Great, now we will have to go through another chaotic Trump loss again.  There is some hope though in that he is old, so maybe he’ll die by then.  That would be the best outcome for the country.

There is no doubt that part of the reasons he is suggesting he is running is to keep the cash registers churning.  The money is coming in based on the belief that he will be president again in 3 1/2 years. (or less*).

Still, he will run if physically able to. He is absolutely 100% addicted to it.

Same could be said of Biden.

So, you think that Biden is going to run for term 2?

Trump pretty much has to run to keep the Republican Party on track.  Trump had greater appeal to minority voting blocks than any of his Republican challengers.  And Trump's pre-pandemic economy will be a stark contrast with Biden's post-pandemic economy.  Trump in the race will almost guarantee that Republican neo-liberal challengers (the legacy of Reagan and Bush) would be doomed.  Trump needs to be in the race to make a resurrection of Rhino Republicans more difficult and broaden the Republican base into minority voting blocks.  The Republican Party is becoming more diverse than academic elites wish to acknowledge.

But Trump running again doesn't translate to Trump winning the nomination again.  Trump in the race only ensures that challengers supporting the MAGA idea would be competitive.  And Trump has a lot of baggage that challengers can use against him.  Trump needs to run but his odds of winning are much longer than 2016.  Whether or not Trump can accept those long odds is entirely up to him.  Can Trump run only for the good of the party?

As a side note:  If Democrats are talking about the 2024 Presidential election already then Democrats have already written off the 2022 midterm elections.  Maybe Democrats are hoping that Republicans take control of Congress so that Democrats can be the resistance again.  Democrats controlling government doesn't seem to be a winning formula.  Democrats are far more competitive as the minority party opposing Republicans than when Democrats are the majority party.  It seems winning is a curse for Democrats; Democrats need to be the underdog.

That's a heck of a lot of condensed opinions to hang your ladle on, were you once employed by Heinz?

With all due respect, what a pile of nonsense. If Trump runs he will be the nominee. How do we know that? Because he will run an incredibly dirty and unethical campaign against DeSantis, Cruz, Pompeo, Noem, Haley, and anyone else. And no one in the party will attack or criticize him for it.  This idea that the Republicans could ever choose someone other than Trump if Trump is running is a fantasy. 

Trump apologists always fail to realize that he is a malignant naricissist who cares nothing about fair play or ethics. His apologists have repeatedly given him every benefit of the doubt , which has also been ridicuous.

The Republican Party doesn't rig its primaries like Democrats do.  That's why Trump winning the nomination was such a shock.  And Democrats will be gunshy about jumping into Republican primaries to give Trump an advantage.  Especially with an expected field of weak Democratic candidates.

Yeah, Trump will run a dirty campaign.  That's how New York politics works.  But with other MAGA candidates that likely won't succeed this time.  Democrats prefer to run on personality instead of ideas because that fits with Democrats' identity politics.  That's how Biden won the Democratic nomination.  Republicans on the other hand prefer to rally around ideas.  Republican apologists (as you call them) are ignoring Trump's obvious flaws to rally around the idea of MAGA.  An alternative MAGA candidate will be competitive against Trump.  

Trump will be challenged by other MAGA candidates unlike 2016.  Primary voters will have a choice in 2024 that they didn't have in 2016.  The 2024 election is shaping up to be a competition between MAGA and the Democrats' agenda (whatever that agenda is).  

Keep in mind that a Democratic majority can't even protect Roe v. Wade so Democrats are going into the midterms at a distinct disadvantage.  Championing the diversity within the Biden administration won't overshadow the rather obvious missteps of that administration.  Democrats holding truly bipartisan legislation hostage to a purely partisan agenda won't garner enthusiasm, particularly with independents.  So far, Democrats are screwing every pooch they encounter.  That's not a winning way for the Democratic majority to use government.
