Trump to hold rallies in four crucial battleground states as he teases possible 2024 election return
DONALD Trump will hold rallies in four battleground states as he considers whether to run for the White House in 2024.
The former president reportedly told One America News that he will be hosting events in Florida, Ohio, Georgia, and North Carolina in the coming weeks.
Trump won three of the crucial battleground states in the November election but was the first Republican presidential candidate to lose Georgia since 1992.
The former president said: "We’ll be announcing them very soon over the next week or two, and I think we’ll probably start in Florida and Ohio and we’ll be announcing the rallies very shortly."
Trump will hold at least two events next month and one rally is likely to take place close to July 4, according to the New York Post.
Former White House doctor Ronny Jackson said Trump is leaning towards “yes” in making a bid to return to power.
He told Business Insider: “He says he’s going to run so we’ll see. He has been saying he’s going to. He’s seriously considering it – he’s probably going to do it – so we’ll see what happens.”
The congressman said he met Trump around six weeks ago at his luxury Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida.
Jackson, a retired Navy rear admiral, first began working at the White House as a physician under George W Bush and has also cared for Barack Obama.
He took questions from reporters for more than an hour after Trump had been given a clean bill of mental and physical health.
Critics questioned that judgment as they pointed to the former president's love of fast food.
Rev Franklin Graham said he was unsure if Trump’s health would permit another campaign.
He told Axios at the time: "I think for him, everything will depend on his health at that time."
Graham said the former president’s reported weight loss could pave the way for another campaign.
He added: "He's lost weight, fifteen pounds, Maybe. So he might be in good health and in good shape. I don't know."
Trump teased a potential 2024 bid during an interview last month with conservative firebrand commentator Candace Owens.
The former president said his supporters would be “very happy” when he announces his decision on whether to run for the White House.
Trump stopped short of declaring his candidacy as he would have been required to disclose his finances and election laws dictate how he could spend his money until the election.
In February, Trump claimed he would beat the Democrats for a “third time” if he contested the 2024 vote as he addressed the Conservative Political Action Conference.
He bragged: “A Republican will make a triumphant return to the White House and I wonder who that will be.”
