Former President Donald Trump has not yet officially said he’s running again in 2024, but he’s dropped a lot of hints that he will.
That includes remarks he made to donors during a speech earlier this week.
As reported by New York Times columnist Maggie Haberman, Trump proclaimed that his ‘MAGA’ movement will return “with a vengeance” in 2022 and beyond.
Trump said multiple times “we” are coming back “with vengeance” and “with a vengeance.”

Former White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham warned in October that a Trump victory in 2024 would likely result in four years’ worth of reprisals.
“He’s clearly the frontrunner in the Republican Party,” Grisham said in an interview with ABC’s “Good Morning America.”
“Everybody’s showing their fealty to him. He’s on his revenge tour, for people who dared to vote for impeachment. And I want to just warn people that once he takes office if he were to win, he doesn’t have to worry about reelection anymore. He will be about revenge, he will probably have some pretty draconian policies,” she said.
Trump made the comments during a closed-door meeting with the National Republican Congressional Committee on Monday. The comments line up with previous remarks Trump has made about the importance of getting back at his business and political enemies.
“If somebody hits you, you’ve got to hit ’em back five times harder than they ever thought possible. You’ve got to get even. Get even,” Trump noted in 2012.
