Donald Trump has dropped another hint at a White House bid in 2024, telling Indian television that running for politics would “make a lot of people very happy.”
“Everyone expects me to flee. “I am ahead in the polls,” Trump stated in an extract from an interview with NDTV, which will be carried in its entirety later Thursday.
“In every poll, in Republican polls and in Democrat polls, and I will make a decision in the very near future, I suspect. And I believe that a lot of people will be extremely happy,” he continued.
The billionaire former reality TV star, 76, also repeated false claims that the 2020 election in which he lost to current President Joe Biden was rigged.
“There is tremendous proof, there is tremendous evidence,” Trump said.
The Republican has faced intense legal scrutiny over his efforts to overturn the results of the poll and over an attack on the US Capitol by his supporters on January 6 last year.
Since leaving office, he has remained America’s most divisive figure, continuing to sow falsehoods that he won the vote.
He is currently under investigation for potential mishandling of classified documents, with the FBI raiding his Florida home last month.
Trump has denied wrongdoing and called the raid “one of the most egregious assaults on democracy in the history of our country”.
In a speech on Saturday in Pennsylvania he hit back at assertions by Biden that he and his supporters are undermining US democracy, calling Biden an “enemy of the state”.
