Trump is laying groundwork for 2024 run and will make announcement when time is right, advisers say

DONALD Trump is already said to be laying the groundwork to run again for president in 2024.

Several aides and close associates have hinted he will campaign to get back into the White House and will make an announcement on this soon.

The Constitution allows a defeated one-term President to run again, as Grover Cleveland did successfully in 1892.

And supporters say no one in the Republican party is as well placed to fight the election in four years.

Trump — who will then be 78 — continues to claim without evidence that he is the victim of a giant electoral fraud,.

But despite this sources close to him say he intends to make a political comeback in 2024.

Former Trump aide Josh Whitehouse told Wtol: "He’s definitely laying the groundwork, keeping his powder dry for a run.

"I'd expect nothing less, knowing who he is and having worked for him for so long."

In a sign he is looking to retain his grip on the Republican Party, Trump is planning to resume his raucous political rallies in the coming weeks.

He’s definitely laying the groundwork, keeping his powder dry for a run

A recent Quinnipiac University national poll found that 66 percent of Republicans would like to see him run for reelection.

Whitehouse said support will coalesce around Trump if he decides to run.

He said: "The energy’s still there. You can’t replicate it."

Matt Schlapp, chair of the American Conservative Union, who is close to the former president, told Atol: "I have definitely picked up a shift that there’s more of an intentionality to be leaning on the side of it's going to happen than it’s not.

"I think it’s a very real possibility."

Bizarre speculation that suggested Trump would be reinstated as president this year has been bubbling online for months.

But LaraTrump has dismissed reports that former President Donald Trump has been telling supporters that he expects to be "reinstated" in the White House by August.

The ex-commander in chief's daughter-in-law and 2020 campaign surrogate, poured cold water on the claims during an interview with Fox News on Thursday morning.

"There are no plans for Donald Trump to be in the White House in August," she said on Fox and Friends.

"Maybe there's something I don't know," she added, "[but] I  think that’s a lot of folks getting a little worked up about something just because there wasn’t enough pushback from the Republican side."
