President Donald Trump gave his first public indication that he may run for office again in 2024 on Tuesday night.

“It’s been an amazing four years. We are trying to do another four years. Otherwise, I’ll see you in four years,” he said during a holiday party with Republican National Committee (RNC) members at the White House, per Politico and CNN.

Prior to Trump’s remarks, a handful of outlets had reported that the President was privately discussing a potential 2024 bid with advisers.

According to NBC News, Trump is considering announcing a campaign on the day of President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration on January 20, which the current President reportedly intends to skip.

Talk of Trump running in the next presidential election cycle has arisen in the midst of the President’s crusade to undermine the 2020 election results that decisively led to his defeat, which he falsely attributes to mass voter fraud.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
