Donald Trump is planning to bring back his famous “Make America Great Again” political rallies — and they may happen much sooner than most expected.
CNN reported Trump may resume his political rallies as soon as May.
The report stated:
Trump had initiated discussions with his advisers about restarting the rallies – despite there still being a coronavirus risk – on behalf of Republican candidates he’s endorsed, and the rallies could resume as early as May.
Then during a podcast taping for the Dan Bongino show, Trump said the ‘appropriate time’ to announce a third presidential run would be after next year’s midterm, as he also slammed a potential GOP primary rival, Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan, calling him a ‘total loser.’
‘So I’m giving it very serious consideration,’ Trump said of another presidential run.
He said the polls in his favor were ‘very positive.’
‘Nobody’s seen anything more positive,’ he continued.
‘If you do it, I think probably the most appropriate time would be right after the ’22 election, that’s my opinion. Could do it sooner, but I think right after the election would be good, especially if you have a good election,’ the ex-president said.
Donald Trump, in an hour-long interview with Fox News Channel’s Sean Hannity last week, said he is “very seriously, beyond seriously” considering running for president in 2024.
Trump told Hannity that he will “very seriously” consider running again in 2024 if the Republican Party can “get the right people” on Capitol Hill.
“It’s very important that we get the right people. That means in the Senate, that means in the House,” Trump said.
Trump added that he is “all in” to campaign on behalf of Republican candidates in next year’s midterm elections.
“I got tremendous numbers, nobody’s ever gotten the numbers I got, no sitting president’s come even close,” Trump said, referring to the 2020 election.
“There’s more popularity now than there was the day before the election because they see how bad things are at the border, they see what’s going on, they see there are guns are going to be gone,” he added.
Earlier this month, Trump’s former chief of staff, Mark Meadows, said a major move could be happening in the future.
During an interview on Sebastion Gorka’s radio show, Meadows said there’s a “50-50 chance” that Trump runs for office again.
“I’m feeling great about President Trump’s willingness to serve once again in the Oval Office,” Meadows told Gorka, another alumnus of the Trump White House.
Meadows didn’t get into specifics, but he did say Trump is “making all the preparations necessary” for another run, and he’s “being encouraged by his friends and former staffers.”
“So he’s getting major encouragement, and I would say this: I would put the odds at better than 50-50 that he runs again, and everybody should take note of that,” he continued.
Trump also recently hired Susie Wiles, a veteran political organizer, to help with his political operations.

In a memo, Wiles wrote: “Focusing on the Trump voter from 2016 was a priority. Often these voters were not members of a Republican Club – sometimes not Republicans – and not drawn to GOP ideology but rather to President Trump as a brand. Re-engaging them was important and proved critical to GOTV (get-out-the-vote) and voter contact efforts.”
Trump adviser Jason Miller explained, “Susie has been a great teammate for two successful presidential campaigns in Florida and we’re glad to have her join the all-stars already assembled. Watch out 2022!”
During an interview last month with Lara Trump, his daughter-in-law who is now a Fox News contributor, Trump strongly suggested that he may run for president in 2024.
When asked about his supporters having hope that he will run again, Trump said: “You do have hope, that I can tell you, you do have hope. We love our country, this country, we all owe a lot to our country, but now we have to help our country.”
Trump also officially launched a brand new website.
