According to David Gergen, Trump is “hungry” to go head-to-head against Biden in 2024 and his interest in running jumps when he sees Biden in trouble.
“The signs are that he is increasingly interested,” said David Gergen. “His interest intensifies when he sees Biden in trouble.”
Gergen said Trump “was really chomping at the bit,” to announce his 2024 candidacy during Biden’s widely criticized Afghanistan withdrawal that immediately was followed by the Taliban taking over. “According to various reports, he had to be talked out of it.”
“And now with Biden’s approval rating sinking down into the low 40s and the economy still not straightening out and the pandemic still not over, that just makes Trump very very hungry,” Gergen continued. “I think it’s going to take something hugely unexpected or a dramatic change in his health or a prison sentence to stop him.”
