Former President Donald Trump said Thursday he’s “100%” thinking about running again for the White House, and would consider popular Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis as a running mate.
Voters “love that ticket. Certainly, Ron would be considered. He’s a great guy,” told Fox Business’ Maria Bartiromo in a wide-ranging interview.
While he continues to rail about the 2020 election results and insist he was the rightful winner over now-President Joe Biden, he thinks a 2024 campaign will be “very successful.”
“The polls show it and everybody wants me to do it,” Trump said. “One hundred percent, I’m thinking about running and we will I think be very successful. We were very successful.”
He pointed out that he ran for office twice, and in the 2020 election “got 12 million more votes than the first time which very rarely happens for a president. I got the largest number of votes in the history of our country for a sitting president. And I was told if I got 66 million, you couldn’t lose. I got 75 million.”
