Currently touring alongside Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene on their “America First” speaking tour, Rep. Matt Gaetz teased a possible Presidential run in 2024.
“I support Donald Trump for president. I’ve directly encouraged him to run and he gives me every indication he will,” Gaetz said in a text message to the NY Post.
“If Trump doesn’t run, I’m sure I could defeat whatever remains of Joe Biden by 2024,” he added.
During his tour, Gaetz told the audience “Thousands of miles away in the swamp of Washington, they kind of hope that this was all over, that our populist little revolt would run away and no longer be a part of our national identity.”
“Oh, we are just starting,” he vowed.
“It’s been too many years since an inspirational President Ronald Reagan told us that it was ‘morning in America again.’ Too often now it seems like it’s twilight for Joe Biden. If it was morning in America under Reagan, it sort of seems like nap time in America when Joe Biden is the president. I think it’s about time to wake up our fellow countrymen,” Gaetz said while encouraging a “new generation of patriots” to get involved in politics.
