President Donald Trump has given an indication that he could be making another run for the White House in the 2024 presidential election, according to Business Insider.

The US president who has constantly questioned the legitimacy of the recent presidential election in which he is projected to have lost, gave the surprise hint on Tuesday, 1 December.

Speaking at a holiday party at the White House, the president reportedly told attendees that he is trying to get elected for another four years.

He said:

"It's been an amazing four years. We're trying to do another four years. Otherwise, I'll see you in four years."

UK Metro reported that dozens of people who attended the party did not wear face masks, including many Republican national committee members. This is the first time Trump will be confirming the speculation of a planned return to the presidency.

However, past reports claimed that Trump's inner circle had been discussing the matter.

Mick Mulvaney, Trump’s former acting chief of staff, had also stated that he expects the president to run again in 2024. He hinged his argument of a Trump presidential comeback on the fact that the president technically will be younger than Joe Biden is now, in four years to come.

Meanwhile, Rudolph Giuliani, the personal defence lawyer to Donald Trump has discussed the possibility of receiving a pre-emptive pardon from the US President before he leaves office, according to The New York Times.

The international media publication citing two people with knowledge of the discussion noted that though it's not clear who brought up the conversion, both men recently talked about a pardon for Giuliani.

It was gathered that Trump’s lawyer led the most extensive efforts to damage the president’s political rivals and undermine the election results. Briefly.co.za reported on the recent findings of the Attorney General that stated there has been no evidence of widespread voter-fraud nor vote-tampering that would lead to a change in the election results.
