Former acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney has said he 'absolutely' expects President Trump to run again in 2024 should he lose his current reelection bid.
'After this election's over who is the leading Republican candidate for 2024?' Mulvaney said. 'I think now, folks are starting to realize, wait a second, if Donald Trump loses he might be the guy, and I'm telling you, absolutely.'
'I would absolutely expect the president to stay involved in politics and would absolutely put him on the shortlist of people who are likely to run in 2024,' Mulvaney said during a webinar hosted by the Dublin think tank Institute for International and European Affairs.
