He’s been dropping cryptic hints for more than a year now, but Donald Trump has finally stated that he’s running in 2024. To be clear: He hasn’t made the official announcement yet. There are a lot of issues at stake, so he still can’t make the official announcement due to fundraising rules. But he has said he’s running. It’s confirmed. It’s definitive. The greatest American president since the early 1800s is running.
And he is SO gonna clean your clocks this time, liberals! You guys are in so much trouble! Run for your fainting couches right now, lefties! Your Big Orange Ultra MAGA Nightmare is back!
Trump says that he’s running for reelection in 2024 in a lengthy article in New York Magazine. The article was written by a reporter named Olivia Nucci. She’s written a sanctimonious hit piece on Donald Trump, which is nothing new for her or for New York Magazine. Nucci is a trendy female reporter, filled with sanctimony and Chardonnay, and who probably has a “complicated” relationship with her daddy. If she had a Twitter profile, she’d declare her pronouns on it. (I worked with a million women just like her at ABC News back in the day.)
Nucci suffers from what I’ve come to think of as the Trump Paradox. Like almost all female reporters, she hates Donald Trump so much that she wants to have his babies. The piece she’s written about him is dripping with hatred for Trump, using lines that she no doubt inserted at a liberal editor’s insistence. But then she slips lines into the piece where she refers to Trump as a “live-action mythological creature.” Cool your jets there, Olivia!
The reason I spend so much time talking about Nucci’s article is because it’s been a long time since Trump sat down for a longer-form interview like this with any print reporter. Trump doesn’t do any of these things by accident, so it tells us that he’s serious when he gave a fake news reporter this much of his time. And this article does deliver the goods. Here’s a rough transcript of the key parts about 2024, slightly edited for better readability than you’ll find from a reporter at New York Magazine:
Trump: Look, I feel very confident that, if I decide to run, I’ll win.
Nucci fawns over Trump for a few words, calling him a mythological person and “such an unusual person.” Oh, yes, Olivia! SUCH an unusual man. Don’t you just HATE him, while simultaneously needing a cold shower?
Trump: Well, in my own mind, I’ve already made that decision, so nothing factors in anymore. In my own mind, I’ve already made that decision.
Nucci gets huffy because Trump won’t initially tell her his decision.
Trump: I would say my big decision will be whether I go before or after. You understand what that means?
Nucci is seriously so charmed by this point that she seems to think that Trump is about to divulge something to her because he’s somehow attracted to her. She doesn’t even realize that Trump has her eating out of his hand.
Trump: Midterms. Do I go before or after? That will be my big decision.
At this point, she just melts and runs an entire quote from the president:
Trump: I just think that there are certain assets to before. Let people know. I think a lot of people would not even run if I did that because, if you look at the polls, they don’t even register. Most of these people. And I think that you would actually have a backlash against them if they ran. People want me to run.
Okay, full disclosure. I quit reading there. That was all I needed to see. If you want to read the entire hateful, bizarre and sexually charged interview that Nucci conducted with Trump, it’s HERE.
The big news, obviously, is simply that Trump is running. He’ll probably make the official announcement before the midterms. There are good tactical reasons for this, and that’s probably why he agreed to do this interview Nucci. He’s running. And that is great news, because the American people are getting extremely fatalistic right now with this illegitimate regime that’s currently running the White House. We needed to hear that help is on the way. Now we know!
