“He doesn’t like losing”

After 4 years in the White House, the former president of the United States might consider a return to politics for 2024. That’s what said his former chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney.

I would absolutely put him on the shortlist of people who are likely to run in 2024” said Trump’s former chief staff”.

With 70 million votes in favor, nothing prevents the outgoing president from attempting a return to politics. In the history of the United States, only Grover Cleveland made a comeback by being elected again in 1884.

A compulsory passage to court cases?

“Nice trucks. You think I could hop into one of them and drive it away. I’d love to do it, just drive the hell out of here. Just get the hell out of this”.
