Trump On Running In 2024: ‘I Don’t Think We’re Going To Have A Choice’

On Monday, former President Donald Trump said that the country is “getting to a point where we really have no choice” but for him to run for president again in 2024.

Trump’s public statements about running seem to indicate that the decision is really a done deal.

Trump made his remarks in an exclusive interview with Fox News Digital.

Trump Says Biden’s Actions May Leave Him No Choice

When asked about if he has considered running for president again in 2024, Trump said, “I don’t think we’re going to have a choice.”

“It is disgraceful,” Trump said of the Biden administration.

Trump called Biden’s botched withdrawal of the U.S. military from Afghanistan as the “greatest embarrassment in the history of our country.”

Trump noted that the parents of military members are more eager to speak with him than the current president.

“When you look at Afghanistan and what happened, and the death for no reason, just for no reason,” Trump said.

Trump added that military “parents – they want to speak with me – they don’t want to speak with Biden.”

“They’re just devastated.” Trump said. “It is getting to a point where we really have no choice.”

After the terror attack at the Kabul airport that killed 13 American soldiers, some of the Gold Star parents refused to meet with Biden. Others who did meet with him were upset by Biden’s demeanor.

Two Gold Star fathers, Mark Schmitz, the father of Marine Jared Schmitz, and Darin Hoover, the father of Marine Darin Taylor Hoover Jr., told Fox News about their unpleasant meeting with Biden.

Schmitz said, “He talked a bit more about his own son than he did my son, and that didn’t sit well with me.”

Hoover was furious that Biden checked his watch during the dignified transfer ceremony for his fallen son: “That didn’t happen just once. It happened on every single one that came out of that airplane. It happened on every single one of them.”

Trump called President Biden “an incompetent person as the leader of our country.”

Trump Calls Biden Administration ‘divisive’

Trump also said Biden has been a divisive president.

“They keep telling everyone how they want to get together, to be inclusive – they’re not inclusive,” Trump said.

He added, “They are very, very dividing and divisive.”

When Trump was asked by a group of New York City firefighters and police officers over the weekend at an event commemorating 20th anniversary of 9/11 if he planned to run again for president, he replied, “I think you’re going to be happy.”
