Former President Donald Trump will most likely wait until after the 2022 mid-term elections to formally announce whether or not he will seek the presidency again in 2024, Trump said in a recent interview with Fox News.
While Trump says he knows that many well-known and popular Republicans will also seek the nation's highest office three years from now, they have publicly said that if Trump runs for the White House, they will not. Trump said that shows him a lot of "loyalty and respect."
"A lot of great people who are thinking about running are waiting for that (Trump's) decision," Trump said. "I am certainly thinking about it and we will see. I think a lot of people will be very happy, frankly, with the decision. ... It doesn't mean I will. The timeline is probably appropriate, but a lot of people are waiting for that decision to be made."
As for a potential running mate, Trump says there are many great Republicans to choose from. Fox News asked Trump whether he would consider Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, whose popularity has soared since he took Florida's highest state office in 2018.
"He's a good man, but we have a lot of great people. He's been good."
Another possible candidate could be former ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, if she doesn't run herself. Haley could court the women's vote after Kamala Harris became Vice President of the United States to Joe Biden earlier this year.
"Every once in a while, she goes off the rails and she comes back, which is nice," Trump said of Haley. I was very good to her. I though she did a very good job at what she did with the United Nations. She did an excellent job. It's very early to be talking about it."
In September, when asked if he would run in 2024, Trump told Fox News, "It's getting to a point where we really have no choice."
