Former President Donald Trump has hinted that he may not run for the presidency again in 2024 after months of stoking speculation that he would stage a return.

Trump says his health could prevent him from taking another swing at politics.

In an interview with Real Clear Politics, Trump continued to promise rain down vengeance on President Joe Biden and complained that the election was “rigged” to prevent him from winning. There is no credible evidence that anything untoward happened during the election and multiple reports have confirmed Biden’s win.

Trump recounted his grievances during the interview, listing off reasons why he should return to the political stage for a comeback. But when the reporter asked him if there was a reason why he wouldn’t run, Trump answered quickly.

“Well, one reason could be your health. You get a call from your doctor and that’s the end of that,” he said. “That stuff happens; you hope it doesn’t. I just had a medical, just had great result. You never know, there are many things can happen; politics is a crazy world. It is a big commitment of you, your children, your wife and your family.”

Still, he insisted that he might run.

Reports indicate that his wife, former First Lady Melania Trump, has said she has no interest in returning to political life.

The Trumps have been dealing with the fallout from former Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham’s new book. After serving the former president for nine months – and famously refusing to hold a single press conference – she left the position to serve the former First Lady.

Grisham’s tell-all is rocking the political set while annoying those who see it as profiting off her decision to enable a tyrant.

Asked this morning on Good Morning America whether she regretted working for the administration, she responded without hesitation or pause: “Yes.”
