Will Trump be elected POTUS in 2024?


Donald John Trump, born June 14, 1946, is the 45th and current president of the United States. Before entering politics, he was a businessman and television personality.

Trump lost the 2020 presidential election to Democratic nominee Joe Biden, but he has refused to concede defeat. He has made unsubstantiated accusations of electoral fraud, mounted a series of legal challenges to the results, and ordered White House officials not to cooperate in the presidential transition.

As of mid-November 2020, Trump is reportedly planning to run for the presidency again in 2024.

If Trump were to win the presidency again in 2024 and take office in 2025, he would be only the second man to serve non-consecutive terms as president of the United States, after Grover Cleveland, who served as the 22nd president from 1885 to 1889 and the 24th president from 1893 to 1897.

Will Donald Trump be elected president of the United States in 2024?
