Former President Donald Trump issued a Thanksgiving message Thursday that hinted at a possible 2024 presidential election.
“A very interesting time in our country, but don’t worry, we will be amazing again – and we will all do it together,” the former Republican president said in the statement, which was shared on Twitter by his spokeswoman, Liz Harrington.

“America will never fail, and we will never allow it to go in the wrong direction. Too many generations of greatness are counting on us. Enjoy your Thanksgiving, knowing that a wonderful future lies ahead!”
The statement played out of Trump’s 2016 campaign slogan, “Make America Great Again,” and gave rise to speculation that he is planning a political comeback. Trump told Fox News earlier this month that he “likely” will wait until after the 2022 midterm elections to formally announce whether he will run again in 2024.
“I’m definitely thinking about it and we’ll see,” Trump said. “I think a lot of people will be very happy, honestly, with the decision and will probably announce it after the midterm period.”
