Daily US Times: Former White House press secretary Sean Spicer said Donald Trump, his former boss, would run for the presidency again in 2024.
During a recent Washington Examiner interview, Spicer claimed of Trump’s interest in the race: “He’s in.”
Spicer reportedly remarked that over the last several months, Trump’s appetite for the presidential election had been bolstered, after watching Joe Biden’s handling of issues such as immigration.
Spicer said: “A couple of months ago, I wasn’t sure. Now … there needs to be something that will keep him out.”
The Examiner does not state whether the former White House press secretary is giving his opinion or whether he has spoken to Mr Trump or has definitive word from his inner circle, or similar information.
As the first White House press secretary, Spicer faced doubts over credibility when he addressed the media from the podium in televised briefings.
He has since claimed that he did not “knowingly” lie to the American people.
Spicer’s latest claim came amid continued speculation about the former president’s political plans following his decisive loss to Joe Biden, a Democrat, in the 2020 election, which officials at local, national and state level called the most secure presidential contest in US history.
Mark Meadows, the former chief of staff of Donald Trump, appeared to discuss the former president’s future aspirations in a recent Newsmax interview.
According to the Hill, Meadows said: “We met with several of our Cabinet members tonight … I’m not authorized to speak on behalf of the president, but I can tell you this…we wouldn’t be meeting tonight if we weren’t making plans to move forward in a real way, with President Trump at the head of that ticket.”
