Donald Trump delivered an encouraging message this week when discussing his future plans and his potential role in the upcoming elections.
While speaking to conservative host Wayne Allen Root, Trump was asked about the possibility of becoming Speaker of the House if Republicans win back the lower chamber in November’s midterms.
Trump didn’t give a specific response to the question, but he made it clear he’s planning to make a big move soon.
“Well, I think a lot of things are happening and a lot of very positive things are happening, you know, when you look into the future that was your idea. I heard it from you first. I don’t know, it certainly has been going around and frankly, I hope we don’t need it because what should happen is, what the plan that we’re on now and the plan that’s going to make people very, very happy we’ll be announcing sometime later, and that’s really what should happen. But we will, you know we’re going to make America great again. So I say Make America Great Again Again,” Trump said.
Trump made his intentions on 2024 quite clear last month when he was golfing with friends and one of them referred to him as the “45th president.”
Trump responded by saying, “45th and 47th,” which would appear to indicate he’s planning to run for president and win in 2024.
“47th! Yes, yes!” his entourage said. “I love that. Mr. Donald J. Trump, ladies, and gentlemen.”

In December, Trump dropped another clue during an interview with Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo.
“The other day Hillary Clinton said that if you win again, it is the end of democracy. Will this be a rematch?” the host said.
“Oh, I have no idea. I hope so. I mean, I’d like that,” the former president said. “But Look, the woman is crooked as can be. She cheated in the election. They spied on my campaign.”
“Remember I put out that little statement, they’re spying on my campaign, and all hell broke out,” he argued. “You know why it broke out? Because they knew I was right. They knew I was right. And all of these things that happened, let’s see what happens now. Let’s see what happens to Hunter, let’s see what happens to all of it.”
And that is when the interview changed to the topic of the current president.
“Just today (Biden) called Kamala Harris president again. Do you think someone else is directing him?” the host said.
“Well, I never called Mike Pence president. I’ll tell you, I can’t imagine what’s going on. It’s hard to believe,” he said.
“Who’s running the country?” Bartiromo pressed.
“Well, think of it, it was so obvious in this case because 450,000 — he was incensed. He was very upset by that question, asked by a very good reporter, actually.
“But he was very angry at that question. Like, how dare you, what a stupid question, of course. The next morning he was saying how, yeah, this is something that we think is excellent,” Trump said.
“That really means in the truest sense that he is not running this country, because there’s no way you go from indignation to, oh, that’s wonderful,” he said.
As for a rematch with Hillary Clinton, it appears she is still not over her defeat in 2016 and, in a recent interview, she warned of what she believes would happen if Trump won again.
“If I were a betting person right now, I’d say Trump is going to run again,” she said last week on NBC’s “Today.”
