Donald Trump teases 2024 run at White House Christmas party
President Donald Trump teased running again for president in 2024 as he hosted a holiday reception at the White House on Tuesday evening.
“It’s been an amazing four years,” Trump told the crowd, which included many Republican National Committee members. “We’re trying to do another four years. Otherwise, I’ll see you in four years.”
This week, the Trumps started holding holiday receptions expected to mark the final season before Trump leaves office on Jan. 20. One attendee, former Oklahoma Republican Party Chair Pam Pollard, streamed the footage of Trump's appearance live on Facebook. It revealed thousands of people, standing close together, crowded into the Cross Hall of the White House State Level. Many of those seen in the video didn't wear masks. according to social media reports checked by The Associated Press, breaching the very public health guidelines that the U.S. government has encouraged the country to follow this holiday season as cases of COVID-19 spike around the world.
In the film, Trump proceeds to air charges of electoral irregularities in the Nov. 3 election against
Joe Biden, who was apparently approved by the winning states to obtain adequate electoral votes for a victory. Earlier Tuesday, Trump's attorney general, William Barr, told the AP that the Department of Justice has not found signs of systematic voting irregularities and had seen nothing that would affect the result of the presidential election in 2020.
