Former acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney has said he ‘absolutely’ expects President Trump to run again in 2024 should he lose his current reelection bid.
‘After this election’s over who is the leading Republican candidate for 2024?’ Mulvaney said. ‘I think now, folks are starting to realize, wait a second, if Donald Trump loses he might be the guy, and I’m telling you, absolutely.’
‘I would absolutely expect the president to stay involved in politics and would absolutely put him on the shortlist of people who are likely to run in 2024,’ Mulvaney said during a webinar hosted by the Dublin think tank Institute for International and European Affairs.
Mulvaney, who also served as Trump’s director of the Office of Management and Budget and who now serves as special envoy for Northern Ireland noted that the president would still be younger than Joe Biden is now.
Describing him as a ‘very high-energy 74 year old’ Mulvaney said that he expects him to be ‘further engaged in 2024 or 2028 if he were to lose this next election.’
He also noted Trump ‘doesn’t like losing’ and also rejected the idea that the president’s decision to file lawsuits in battleground states that were still counting votes was a threat to democracy.
