Trump Reveals Reason He Cannot Announce a 2024 Presidential Run Yet
'I can’t really because of campaign finance rules'
Donald Trump has been hinting at a 2024 presidential run for a while now but is still yet to make any official announcement.
During an interview with Michael Savage, Trump said campaign finance laws are what is standing in the way of him creating a presidential campaign.
“I can’t really because of campaign finance rules, regulations, very complicated, very stuff, and frankly very antiquated if you want to know the truth," Trump said.
"It’s ridiculous,” he said, Breitbart reported.
The outlet also noted that Trump’s Save America PAC has $85 million cash on hand as of April 2021, but the money cannot be used for his own race.
“I will be talking about it, and I think that people will be very happy,” Trump said.
The political action committee may also play a significant role in the 2022 congressional and state-level races in the 2022 midterm elections.
The president’s PAC would probably use the fund to target Democrats and moderate Republicans Trump disagrees with.
“If we had leadership, this party would be amazing, but Mitch is not a good leader; he’s just a survivor,” he added.
According to various reports, Trump told dinner guests he was planning to run in 2024.
An anonymous source from the Republican National Committee told the magazine:
“I have three friends who’ve had dinner with [Trump] in the last couple of months. All three reported that his current plans are to run for president in 2024."

In May, Neon Nettle reported that seventy-three percent of the Republican base wanted Trump to run for president again, with 83% of the GOP saying they would vote for him in 2024.
In a head-to-head race with Vice President Kamala Harris, Trump would win by 4 points.
According to a new McLaughlin & Associates survey, Trump would swamp every single challenger in the primary.
Trump leads with 57%, followed by former Vice President Mike Pence at 10%, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis at 8%, and former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley at 5% in the potential primary.
