Donald Trump’s fight to overturn the 2020 election just keeps getting sadder and sadder. On Thanksgiving, the president has a meltdown over a reporter’s perceived lack of respect. And on Friday, Trump’s requested Milwaukee recount resulted in Joe Biden’s lead growing by 132 votes.There are some signs that the president is starting to come to grips with the fact that he has lost. But he’s certainly not going to react to that loss with any kind of grace or class. In fact, Trump is reportedly considering holding a campaign event to run during the same week as the inauguration.
Typically, the incumbent president uses the inauguration to welcome and prepare his successor. When asked if he would do so this week, Trump refused to say.
If possible, Trump is clearly looking to run for president again in 2024. Whether this is a realistic scenario or just a ploy to repair his damaged ego remains to be seen. But for now, it looks like full steam ahead.
The Daily Beast’s Asawin Suebsaeng writes:
“[Trump] has not just talked to close advisers and confidants about a potential 2024 run to reclaim the White House but about the specifics of a campaign launch. The conversations have explored, among other things, how Trump could best time his announcement so as to keep the Republican Party behind him for the next four years. Two of these knowledgeable sources said the president has, in the past two weeks, even floated the idea of doing a 2024-related event during Biden’s inauguration week, possibly on Inauguration Day, if his legal effort to steal the 2020 election ultimately fails.”
