Reuters, citing a source who was not named, stated that Trump told his allies that he may announce his 2024 presidential bid by the end of the year.

Though the president has not openly made any statement about launching another presidential bid, several reports have claimed that he has been talking about it with his close circle.

Mick Mulvaney, Trump’s former acting chief of staff, said he expects the president to run again in 2024.

The former presidential aide stated that the president doesn’t like losing.

He said:

"Now, I think folks are starting to realize that if Donald Trump loses, he might be the guy" to run in 2024, and "I'm telling you absolutely."
"I would absolutely expect the president to stay involved in politics and would absolutely put him on a shortlist of people who are likely to run in 2024," he added. "He doesn't like losing."

Mulvaney hinged his argument of a Trump presidential comeback on the fact that the president technically will be younger than Joe Biden is now, four years from now.

Trump has continued to question the legitimacy of the US presidential election in which Joe Biden was projected as the winner.

Under the US constitution, a person can serve as president for a maximum of two four-year terms but the terms do not have to be consecutive.

Meanwhile, the projected winner of the United States' 2020 presidential election, Joe Biden, has appointed 59-year-old Ron Klain as his chief of staff.

The newly appointed chief of staff, Klain, had earlier served as Biden’s chief of staff when the 77-year-old was vice president under President Barack Obama.
