Trump Hints At 2024 Presidential Bid In Thanksgiving Message: 'Wonderful Future Lies Ahead'

KEY POINTS

  • The former president promised America “will be great again”
  • A Thanksgiving email attributed to Trump lambasted Biden for soaring inflation
  • Trump’s approval rating is ticking up in recent months

Former President Donald Trump on Thursday teased a possible 2024 presidential bid in a Thanksgiving message. 

In a statement shared by Trump’s spokeswoman Liz Harrington, the former president fueled speculation that he is planning to run again for the presidential seat in the 2024 election, weeks after he said he would “probably” wait until after the 2022 midterm elections to make an official decision.

“A very interesting time in our Country, but do not worry, we will be great again—and we will all do it together,” Trump said in a statement, which played off his campaign slogan, “Make America Great Again.”

“America will never fail, and we will never allow it to go in the wrong direction… enjoy your Thanksgiving knowing that a wonderful future lies ahead,” he added.

A separate Thanksgiving email from the fundraising department of the Save America PAC attributed to Trump slammed President Joe Biden for the country’s soaring inflation rate. It is unclear whether the former president played a role in writing or reviewing the PAC’s email blast. 

“Biden took the beautiful, strong economy I built and lit it up in flames. The price of your Thanksgiving meal has gone up 14%. Despicable,” the email said, as quoted by New York Post. “It saddens me to think that YOU are paying the price for Joe Biden’s terrible leadership.”

When Trump left office in January, he had low approval ratings following the chaotic riot at the Capitol. However, his approval ratings began ticking up in recent months. 

A recent poll conducted by GOP pollster Tony Fabrizio found that Trump’s approval ratings in several swing states, including Wisconsin and Michigan, were higher than that of Biden. 

In Wisconsin, Trump led Biden by 13 points. The former president also led Biden by 10 points in Arizona, 9 points in Georgia, 14 points in Michigan and 11 points in Pennsylvania.

The poll also surveyed 600 likely voters on who they would support if both figures ran for the presidential seat in 2024. Based on the survey’s results, Trump could decisively win against Biden in the five swing states, which the latter secured in the 2020 elections. 

“Simply put, at this juncture battleground state voters want Donald Trump leading this country instead of Joe Biden,” Fabrizio wrote in the poll memo.
