It has seemed all but certain for quite some time that former President Donald Trump will run for the White House again in 2024, with the only real speculation in that regard being when, exactly, he will formally announce his candidacy.
According to Trump himself during a rally Thursday night, he will “very, very, very probably” run for the presidency again and that announcement will come “very soon,” Breitbart reported.
The announcement will come “very soon. Get ready.”
On Thursday, former President Trump held a “Save America” rally in Sioux City, Iowa in support of Republican candidates in the state that he has endorsed, including Gov. Kim Reynolds and Sen. Chuck Grassley.
At one point in his remarks, Trump said, “And now in order to make our country successful, and safe, and glorious, I will very, very, very probably do it again.”
“Okay? Very, very, very probably. Very, very, very probably,” he repeated, and after the great applause and chants of “Trump!” quieted down, he added, “Well, get ready. That’s all I’m telling you — very soon. Get ready.”

Senior advisor suggests announcement around first of the new year
The “very” clear implication here is that former President Trump will formally announce his 2024 candidacy shortly after the midterm elections are held next week, which would align with other recent rumors and reports about his alleged intentions.
Just the News reported Monday that Jason Miller, a longtime senior advisor and confidante, explained in an interview, “I’m confident he’s going to run so that’s not the issue.”
“I hear him make a little noise. It could be pretty soon after the midterms. My gut tells me it’s gonna be a little closer to the first of the year or maybe even just after the first of the year,” Miller added.
Announcement could come as soon as Nov. 14, reports indicate
Axios reported Friday, however, that according to unnamed sources purported to be “familiar with the sensitive discussions,” a date for that anticipated announcement has already been set for November 14, which will be followed by a “multi-day series of political events” in which Trump will take credit for the likely Republican victories and attempt to harness that initial momentum for his presidential campaign.
That said, the outlet noted that the “discussions are still fluid and could change,” if, perhaps, the broad GOP victory doesn’t actually pan out or critical races, such as the Senate contest in Georgia, are too close to call or go to a run-off.
As for the particular date of November 14 for the possible announcement, there could be some personal reasons behind that choice, as The Hill reported that Trump’s youngest daughter Tiffany is scheduled to get married at her father’s Mar-a-Lago resort on November 12 and Trump wanted to wait until after that event in order to not overshadow or draw attention away from her nuptials.
