Trump declares himself 47th president, fueling speculation of 2024 run

By

A video spreading widely on social media Wednesday shows former President Donald Trump declaring himself the 47th president of the United States. In the video, which shows former President Trump on a golfing trip, the person taking the video described Trump as “the 45th president of the United States.”

“45th and 47th,” Trump responded.

While Trump hasn’t officially declared his candidacy for 2024, he has hinted at the idea. According to a Politico/Morning Consult poll released earlier this month, 70% of Republicans want former Trump to run for president again. That same poll found 63% of Democrats want President Joe Biden to run for reelection, setting up a potential 2020 presidential rematch.
