For months now Donald Trump has been teasing a 2024 White House run amid the utter failure of the Biden administration. Like the rest of us, Trump has been forced to spectate the Biden calamity as he takes what was once great and destroy it. Biden has left no stone unturned; he’s successfully reversed or destroyed every policy from that past administration, and we’ve all suffered as a result.
Still, the Former President has been hesitant to fully reveal his plans for 2024 — and now we know why.
Speaking about his future political plans in an interview on the Michael Savage Show, Trump revealed “antiquated” campaign finance laws are what’s preventing him from making a full announcement.
The typical interview question was asked: “Mr. Trump, do you plan on running agin in 2024?”
To which Trump gave an answer that surprised many Americans. No one considered the restrictions set forth in current campaign finance law, and no one thought they could handcuff a private citizen in this regard.
“I can’t really because of campaign finance rules, regulations, very complicated, very stiff, and frankly very antiquated if you want to know the truth. It’s ridiculous,” he said.
However, Trump did admit that he is still having high-level conservations about a 2024 run with campaign advisers, former staffers, and GOP Congressional leaders.
“I will be talking about it and I think that people will be very happy,” he predicted.
Per current campaign finance law, Trump may use hundreds of millions of dollars in campaign funds for political activities, but not one his own presidential campaign. His fundraising entity — Save America PAC — has garnered more than $85 million in donations, and is expected to increase as we approach 2022.
An official announcement for another White House bid would trigger campaign finance laws and impose stricter rules on Trump’s campaign spending and personal finances.
The Former President vowed to continue using his money to support Republican candidates as long as he doesn’t not officially announce his candidacy for president.
Trump said he would continue to fight for great Republican candidates but again criticized Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s leadership.
“If we had leadership, this party would be amazing, but Mitch is not a good leader, he’s just a survivor,” he said.
Recently Trump sat down with Fox News host Sean Hannity to discuss the possibility of a 2024 run.

Meanwhile, Republican voters overwhelmingly hope to see Mr. Trump on the top of the ticket. Some have even speculated that he may run in 2022 with a wild theory that he run for House Speaker. If successful, Trump could oust Pelosi, begin criminal investigations into president Biden and vice president Harris, and emerge as the next POTUS before the end of Sleepy Joe’s first term.
One can dream!
