‘Absolutely No Doubt’ Donald Trump Is Running for President Again, Says Steve Bannon

Steve Bannon believes there is “absolutely no doubt” that former President Donald Trump will run for the White House again in 2024.

Trump has consistently teased the possibility of a 2024 presidential run but has not formally confirmed his plans. Some Republicans strongly oppose the former president seeking elected office in the future, while others remain supportive of Trump but fear he could hurt the GOP in down-ballot races in more moderate districts. Meanwhile, most Republican voters appear supportive of him seeking the White House again.

“Donald J. Trump is running again in 2024, there’s absolutely no doubt about that,” Bannon said in an interview with Newsmax on Friday. He then took aim at indictments against the former president’s business—the Trump Organization—in New York. Bannon argued that these were politically motivated to “try to stop him.”

“They’re not gonna stop him. This is only going to make the MAGA movement more determined,” the former Trump administration official said. Bannon went on to say that “the MAGA movement, the America First movement is more engaged, more energized.”

Bannon’s remarks came after Trump suggested on Wednesday that he planned to run again in 2024. During a Fox News town hall, right-wing opinion host Sean Hannity asked the former president: “Without giving the answer what the answer is, have you made up your mind [about 2024]?”
