Trump Teases 2024 Run – ‘I Think You’ll Be Very Happy’

I would say two, three years ago you might not have been that happy but now I think you’d be happy

Former President Donald Trump has yet to reveal whether or not he plans to run for president again in 2024, but in a new interview this week with Fox News host Greg Gutfeld, Trump said that his decision will make some people “very happy.”

“I love our country,” he said. “I think you’ll be very happy. I would say two, three years ago you might not have been that happy but now I think you’d be happy… I’ll make a decision in the not-so-distant future.”

Trump went on to claim that the polls agree with him since some ratings hit 98% approval for the Republican Party, which makes the former president “feel appreciated.” He then blasted the leftwing media for protecting the “incompetent” Joe Biden administration and for staying silent on the developing disaster in Afghanistan.

“I watch the evening news and they talk about everything they can but they don’t like to talk about Afghanistan,” Trump said. “[CNN is] torn because if they cover it, they’ll get higher ratings but they don’t want to cover it because it’s bad for the radical left Democrats. And they’re doing that to protect some of the most incompetent people in the history of politics.”


Trump also said that the mainstream media refuses to cover the spike in crime that has happened across the country that has been fueled by the defund the police movement following Black Lives Matter protests last summer. The former president lamented that prosecutors now “only go after Republicans.”

“Look at Chicago where they say 113 people were shot at and 28 died. That’s worse than Afghanistan,” he said. “We didn’t lose, I told you, a soldier in many, many months and here they have 28 people died over a weekend? It’s a disgrace.”

In this same interview, Trump said that more Americans are catching on to how wokeism, such as critical race theory being taught in schools, is a threat to this country.

“Woke means you’re a loser,” he said. “I’m watching parents in Virginia – they’re tired of it. They don’t want it. They’re finally getting it… They’re throwing these maniacs out and it’s been great to watch.”Trump later shifted back to attacking Biden and his mental fitness, calling his lack of it a national security threat.

“It’s so sad for our country,” he said. “I got to know Putin and President Xi of China and Kim Jong Un and all of them very well. They’re at the top of their game. When they see the scene at the meetings that they’ve had where [Biden’s] wife, who’s lovely, is screaming, ‘come here, Joe…’ When they see that, I can’t imagine they’re inspired.”
