Donald Trump says he’s ‘already made’ decision about 2024 White House bid

Former President Donald Trump said he’s already made his decision about whether to run for the presidency again in 2024.

In an interview published in New York magazine on Thursday, Mr. Trump said the only thing left is deciding when to make his announcement.

“Well, in my own mind, I’ve already made that decision [about running again], so nothing factors in anymore. In my own mind, I’ve already made that decision,” he said.

The reporter, Olivia Nuzzi, said Mr. Trump “couldn’t help himself” from giving more hints during their interview on Monday.

“I would say my big decision will be whether I go before or after [the midterm elections],” he said. “Do I go before or after? That will be my big decision.”

Mr. Trump has been broadly hinting for months that another run for the White House is likely. He is very critical of President Biden’s record, especially with inflation running at 40-year highs.

He is also the target of the House Jan. 6 committee investigating the riot at the U.S. Capitol in 2021. Mr. Trump reportedly believes that announcing his candidacy sooner rather than later would underscore what he views as the partisan nature of the committee’s investigation.
