If Rupert Murdoch says it, well it must be true right? Merrick Garland is still missing in action. I guess he’ll have to wait on indictments until AFTER the Presidential elections in 2024…
Former President Donald Trump plans to formally announce his long-teased third run for the White House later this month, two sources told The Post Friday.
One source added that Nov. 14, the Monday after the midterm elections, is the likely date the 45th president will launch his bid. Another source said an announcement would come sometime this month, but they had not heard of a specific date being set.
The potential announcement date, six days after Republicans are expected to post big gains in the House and Senate, was first reported by Axios, which cited three sources familiar with the “sensitive discussions.”
Any announcement will likely be followed by several days of political events focused on the 45th president, the report said — with Trump’s allies blocking out days on their calendars for potential travel.
The news comes one day after Trump told a rally crowd in Sioux City, Iowa, that he “will very, very, very probably do it again.”
“Very, very, very probably — VERY, very, very probably. Get ready, that’s all I’m telling you. Very soon. Get ready,” he teased to roars of approval Thursday night at a rally in support of Republican candidates, including Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds and Sen. Chuck Grassley.
The suggested date also fits previous reports that the expected announcement would come sometime between the Nov. 8 midterms and the Nov. 24 Thanksgiving holiday.
Trump has reportedly been speed-dialing confidantes to hash out possible scenarios as he looks to benefit from an expected red wave.
However, the outlet cautioned that the date of a potential announcement could be changed depending on the midterm results, especially if control of the Senate hinges on a potential Dec. 6 runoff in Georgia between Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock and Trump-endorsed former football star Herschel Walker.
The Iowa rally was the first in a series of barnstorming events fronted by the former president ahead of Election Day. Trump was scheduled to appear in Pennsylvania on Saturday night, Florida on Sunday and Ohio on Monday, election eve.
Trump spokesman Taylor Budowich told The Post he was “not commenting on the never-ending media speculation and rumors.”
“As President Trump has said, Americans should go vote up and down the ballot for Republicans,” Budowich added, “and he will continue that message tomorrow night in Pennsylvania.”
