Sean Spicer predicts his former commander-in-chief will once again run for president in 2024.
“He is in,” the former first press secretary said of Donald Trump’s campaign, according to the Washington Examiner.
Spicer revealed the previous president felt compelled to stand for election after witnessing the Biden administration’s months of bumbles. Immigration and other issues have prompted Trump to look beyond the 2022 midterm elections.
The former president recently attracted $102 million in political donations. He also lost weight and maintained high approval ratings, according to Spicer.
“A couple of months ago I was not sure [about Trump’s 2024 White House bid,]” the host of Newsmax TV’s “Spicer & Co” said. “[Now it is more like] there needs to be something that will keep him out.”
The remarks came during a preview interview about his new book, “Radical Nation: Joe Biden and Kamala Harris’s Dangerous Plan for America.” This has already become a top pre-sale bestseller on the Amazon website.
Trump met with his “Cabinet members” and different senior congressional Republicans for nearly two hours at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J. during June. GOP Study Committee chair Rep. Jim Banks (R-Ind.) and other caucus leadership members discussed the Democrat’s slim majority in the House, and influence over half the Senate.
“We [also] talked about our election integrity bill, the Save Democracy Act, which he was very supportive of, and we talked about what we have done to define immigration moving forward,” Banks said according to the New York Post. “We [will] take back the majority by focusing on the Trump agenda and President Trump plays a big role in that.”
Banks confirmed the former president is in “great spirits.”
“He is obviously planning to go out and hit the road, and campaign for candidates who share our vision–and we were excited to talk to him about that” he said according to the publication.
“I can say that members of our group are very encouraging and, if not encouraging him to run in 2024, encouraging him to continue to communicate with American people–and engage with the American people,” he added.
