The reality of President Trump running for office again in 2024 is something that many Americans are rooting for.
Hopes of the 45th president holding onto the White House this go-around are gone. On Thursday, Trump spoke from the White House and conceded to Joe Biden; he also explained that a new administration will enter into the White House on January 20, after acknowledging the disappointment of his supporters across the nation.
Not only has Trump officially conceded the 2020 presidential election, but he also withdrew all the remaining lawsuits that involved the November 3 race. This comes in the wake of lethal and chaotic riots at the U.S. Capitol this past Wednesday.
However, some aides and allies to Trump are warning that Wednesday’s events significantly hurt his chances of seeking office again in 2024, per Washington Examiner.
What to Know About Trump 2024
The 45th president has not (yet) openly vowed to seek re-election in the 2024 White House race. However, there are reports that Trump privately discusses matters of this nature with the folks closest to him; nevertheless, the events at Capitol Hill this week are a game-changer.
According to a former Trump campaign adviser, the 2024 presidential election was previously a “long shot” for Trump seeking re-election; after what happened at the U.S. Capitol, this former aide now believes that Trump is “toast” when it comes to seeking re-election.
Hopefully some more potential candidates will surface in the coming months and years, but for now there are a few good possibilities. Ron DeSantis is one.

Apparently, Wednesday’s events also hurt the fundraising for the Trump team. Campaigning, in and of itself, would also prove challenging, seeing as Twitter has permanently suspended the @realDonaldTrump and @TeamTrump accounts. The use of Twitter and social media has been vital for Trump and his contact with supporters.
Multiple Trump staffers also turned in their resignations and some allies of the president are reportedly not pleased with him after what happened on Capitol Hill.
Possible 2024 Contenders
There are many Republican names that have come up as possible 2024 candidates. Current Vice President Mike Pence is one example, as is first son Donald Trump Jr., former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem, and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
Democrats are fearful of Donald Trump running again in 2024. They want to impeach and convict so he is prevented from running again. He will win in 2024.

Some conservatives would be more than happy for Trump to run again in 2024; others are eager for change and fresh faces to lead the Republican Party. Only time will tell what’s to come in the 2024 presidential election.
