In rare public outing, Trump dangles 2024 prospects

 Former President Donald Trump on Saturday (June 5) appeared to dangle a possible run himself for president in 2024, saying he was looking forward to that year.

Speaking in Greenville, North Carolina, at the state’s Republican Party convention, Trump’s speech had all the hallmarks of his signature campaign rallies.

North Carolina Republican Party Chairman Michael Whatley introduced Trump as “our president,” a nod to the former president’s baseless claims that the 2020 election was stolen from him through voter fraud, which Trump called “the crime of the century.”

Trump vowed to help Republicans in 2022 congressional elections and endorsed U.S. Representative Ted Budd for a U.S. Senate seat in North Carolina after his daughter-in-law, Lara Trump, said she would not run.

Lara Trump announced on stage she had considered running for the North Carolina Senate seat but opted not to do so in 2022 in order to care for her young children. But she did not rule out a run in the future.

Trump emerged from seclusion for the Saturday event, the first in a planned series of speaking engagements this summer.
