The majority of Republicans believe that Donald Trump will make an attempt to be the GOP nominee for president in 2024 and he has been giving hints that he is interested.

But he has given what could be his strongest hint yet in showing that he intends to become president again.

He talked with GB News host Nigel Farage at his Mar-a-lago resort in Florida where he talked about his love for the United States as the driving factor in his decision, The Daily Mail reported.

“Why on earth would [you] consider going into that hell again?” the host said.

“So I love our country,” the 45th President of the United States said. “If you love the country you have no choice. It’s not a question.”

“I brought the country to a level its never seen before, then we had Covid come in, then I brought it back, came up with vaccines that you’re using were all using, the world is using,” he said.

“This is a wonderful, beautiful life,” he said of his life as a private citizen. “But I like that [being president] too because I was helping people. That’s why I did it and I think you’ll be happy in the future too because that’ll be your next question. You’ll be happy.”

In an interview with Yahoo Finance on Sunday he did not appear to be too concerned with the man many think would be his top rival for the nomination, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.

“If I faced him, I’d beat him like I would beat everyone else,” he said.

‘I don’t think I will face him,” he said. “I think most people would drop out, I think he would drop out.”

If he is the Republican nominee that could be a nightmare for Biden because, recent polls show that Trump defeats him head to head.

The Washington Examiner reported.

Donald Trump boasts a double-digit lead over President Joe Biden in a new poll examining a potential 2024 rematch in Iowa.

The former president also leads Biden, who is facing low approval numbers eight months into his presidency, with support from independents, but Trump faces some warning signs in what could be a fight in Iowa’s first-in-the-nation Republican caucuses.

Trump prevailed in a face-off by 11 points, 51%-40%, among all likely Iowa voters, according to the results of a Des Moines Register/Mediacom Iowa Poll released on Sunday. The other 9% was split among those who said they would not vote for either candidate or were not sure.

Trump defeated Biden in Iowa by 8 points, 53%-45%, just over a year ago in 2020.

And when it comes to independents Trump holds a commanding over Biden of 8 percentage point lead of 45%-37%.

“The poll was conducted by Selzer & Co., surveying 810 Iowa adults, including 658 likely voters, between Nov. 7 and 10. The survey has a margin of error of plus-or-minus 3.4 percentage points among all Iowans, and 3.8 points among likely voters,” The Examiner said.

And, in what is more bad news for Biden, a recent poll shows that even Democrats want someone else at the head of the ticket.

An NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist National poll found that only 36% of Democrats want Biden to be on the 2024 presidential ticket.

And in September a survey released by Emerson College found that Trump is now President Biden 47% to 46%.

“Historically, this data reminds me of 1912 when Teddy Roosevelt failed to win the Republican nomination from then-President Taft and created a third party dooming the Republican chances against Woodrow Wilson,” Spencer Kimball, Director of Emerson College Polling, said in a statement.

“This data suggests that Republicans want either Trump or a Trumpian candidate to be their nominee, or half of them may split from the party,” he added.
