Despite the efforts of Big Tech and the mainstream media to try and make the 45th president of the United States all but disappear, it now looks as though Americans interested in hearing more from Joe Biden’s predecessor in office may have their chance very soon.
According to the Washington Examiner, former President Donald Trump sat down for an interview with daughter-in-law Lara Trump and suggested that he may hold one of his signature rallies “relatively soon just to let everybody know that there’s hope in the future,” something sure to infuriate those on the left who simply want him gone.
Massive, stem-winding rallies were a hallmark of Trump’s 2016 and 2020 presidential campaigns, but they hit a roadblock when the coronavirus pandemic hit early last year. Ultimately, the format shifted from arena events to outdoor spectacles that were held right up until Election Day.
Trump’s potential return to rallies comes as he continues to tease the notion of a 2024 campaign to reclaim the Oval Office, a topic on which Lara Trump also touched during the interview. When she asked whether there’s a chance he will indeed run in the next election cycle, the former president said:
You do have hope, that I can tell you. You do have hope. We love our country, this country. We all owe a lot to our country, but now, we have to help our country.
While his response was noncommittal in terms of an official announcement, Trump’s actions are certainly not indicative of an intention to leave the political stage. Earlier this month, he issued a strong, public condemnation of President Biden’s handling of the crisis at the southern border, declaring:
We proudly handed the Biden Administration the most secure border in history. All they had to do was keep this smooth-running system on autopilot. Instead, in the span of just a few weeks, the Biden Administration has turned a national triumph into a national disaster. They are in way over their heads and taking on water fast.
The former president’s camp has also teased a potential trip to the border, with senior Trump aide Jason Miller telling the Washington Examiner earlier this month that he may travel south “not immediately, but I could see a trip at some point in the future here…it is something that President Trump is really concerned about.”
Even so, Trump’s possible return to the public arena will not be without its obstacles, as social media giants Facebook and Instagram are still holding firm in their attempts to censor the former president out of existence. Both platforms removed audio of the interview Lara Trump conducted with the former president for the sole reason that it “featured Trump speaking” and included the “voice of Donald Trump,” as the New York Post reported, prompting the newly-minted Fox News contributor to declare, “and just like that, we are one step closer to Orwell’s 1984. Wow.”
The former president is not the only member of his family who is perhaps plotting to make another big political splash, as Lara Trump herself is reportedly weighing a 2022 run for the North Carolina Senate seat set to be vacated by GOP Sen. Richard Burr, and she told Newsmax earlier this month that she may have “something to announce very soon,” as Newsweek reported.
Regardless of whether Trump launches another bid for the White House, it is abundantly clear that he maintains an unwavering commitment to shining a spotlight on the critical issues facing our country – and calling out the failures of those currently in charge – and will not be deterred by the relentless push to cancel him from public life.
