In Iowa, there are forces on the ground, crowdfunding in a hurry, and more conversations with national media. There has been a deluge of new press releases. On the internet, there has been an increase in the number of attack adverts.
Donald Trump is expressing a greater interest in recovering the White House and establishing the framework to do it. He’s doing this with a burst of activity from his major political organization and suggestions thrown in private chats with trusted friends and associates.
Trump and his supporters have fueled speculation that he may seek a comeback in 2024 after his November loss. This is nothing unusual; before his first presidential effort, Trump toyed with the idea of running for president for years without really doing so.
Trump Might be Able to Capitalise on Biden’s Failures
However, affiliates say that President Biden’s dwindling political fortunes (which coincide with the revival of the coronavirus and the collapse of Kabul on August 15) have piqued the former president’s attention.
This interest was already fueled by a strong sense of purpose and grievance over his loss (however legitimate it may be) to Biden.

Trump considers Biden on the verge of losing. He needs to throw blows as a fighter, not a spectator, according to Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz. Gaetz also added that Trump isn’t in a hurry to declare because the support is rightly committed to him. In politics, it’s also a great guideline to run for office for as little time as possible.
Gaetz, like the other Trump aides and allies contacted for this story, refused to discuss his interactions with Trump or within the campaign. However, he believes Trump would take the leap, particularly if the GOP retakes one or both chambers of Congress in the 2022 midterms.
Trump Remains Secretive
In various interviews, Trump avoids disclosing details about his intentions, but he has hinted to others that he is standing. Behind the scenes, Trump’s also paying much attention to the smaller points, such as suggesting changes to his web commercials to make them more effective over Biden.

Trump’s organization is also taking actual steps to raise his image and prepare him for a possible run. From appointing a professional communications employee to keep up with increased activities, Trump’s autumn itinerary has also been updated, with events planned in Iowa and Florida, a key swing state.
Perhaps in an even more telling sign, the PAC revealed less than a fortnight earlier that it recruited two prominent Iowa strategists to advance Save America’s aims of supporting powerful, pro-Trump, America First Republicans.
According to Trump strategists, the Iowa workers also have another intention; they can keep a close eye on prospective Republican presidential hopefuls who are flocking the country’s first-in-the-nation vote.
