Former President Donald Trump has made a decision in his “own mind” on whether or not he’s going to make another White House run in 2024.
He said that there is only one drama remaining in the whole thing: deciding whether or not to declare his intentions prior or later than the midterm elections.
“Well, in my own mind, I’ve already made that decision, so nothing factors in anymore,” he told the Intelligencer in an interview published Thursday. “In my own mind, I’ve already made that decision.”
“I would say my big decision will be whether I go before or after,” he continued. “You understand what that means?”
“Midterms,” he explained.

Some people fear that if Trump announces he’s in for 2024, it will force candidates in competitive elections to either side with or against him, which could create problems for their campaigns.
It might also motivate Democrat voters to vote, even if they are otherwise apathetic.
Nearly a year ago, Donald Trump’s confidants in the kitchen told him not to make his 2024 campaign announcement before the midterms. He argued that he might be a hindrance on the 2022 candidates and could also be held responsible if Republicans fail. https://t.co/TOu2sjJLz2 pic.twitter.com/0XboHNv4hY

Too Much Drama
81 million people – according to the numbers at hand – came out and voted AGAINST Trump in 2020. They didn’t vote for Biden. And some have suggested Trump’s insistence on continuing the election fraud gambit cost them the Senate shortly thereafter when they lost the Georgia Senate runoffs.
Also, Trump please, let’s wait until after midterms for the benefit of our nation. Don’t give the real ‘wacko birds’ something to feed off of.
It is true that the American resistance will likely be crushed midterm, given the economic woes and other failures facing Democrats and progressive keepers.
But why give their low-information base something that will cause them to drag their asses off the couch and vote Democrat just because they’re anti-Trump?
But it’s too dramatic. Are we truly ready to have a bull at a china shop every day??
I believe that the maximum legal age to begin a Presidential term is 69.

As an example of what more Independent or left-leaning voters may be thinking, Tesla CEO Elon Musk, who has shifted politically to the point where he voted for a Republican for the first time recently, has said he wouldn’t support Trump because of “too much drama.”
Now, some might say ‘Who cares what a career Democrat voter thinks?’ But there is a political and cultural shift happening in this country right now and it’s to the benefit of the GOP.
Musk’s comments are a perfect microcosm of a voter that might be on the fence. No matter what great, pro-American things Trump has done for this country, they simply can’t bring themselves to vote for him because he’s angry, or mean, or causes liberal hearts to drown in sorrow.
We can’t let that get in the way of the midterm elections. Every vote is needed to save the nation in November 2022. It’s the only hope we have of stopping this train wreck of an administration.
If Republicans gain control of Congress and find a way to slow Biden down and possibly turn the country around economically, then that might bode well for Trump’s own campaign.
