Trump is planning an event DURING the President-elect's inauguration to announce his run in 2024. & # 39;


Donald Trump is said to be considering holding an event during the President-elect's inauguration to announce his run in 2024 and has boasted that he believes the networks will continue to cover him after he leaves the White House because Joe Biden is "boring".

Three sources close to the president told The Daily Beast that he was planning various avenues to boycott Biden's administration, including ways to steal his thunder when he was sworn in as the 46th President of the United States in January.

Two of the sources said Trump was considering scheduling a kick-off event for his White House campaign in 2024 to conflict with the housewarming week or the ceremony itself.

This would be a clear departure from the protocol, as the outgoing president traditionally takes part in the inauguration of the new president as part of a peaceful transfer of power – a grace granted by then-President Barack Obama and Vice-President Biden Trump in 2017.

It comes as Trump took a break from campaigning on Thanksgiving weekend to play a round of golf at his club in Sterling, Virginia for the second straight year on Saturday.

He greeted and wore a & # 39; MAGA hat & # 39; as he disembarked Marine One at Trump National Golf Club with his sons Eric Trump and Donald Trump Jr. and Don Jr.'s girlfriend, Kimberley Guilfoyle in tow.

Don Jr. claimed Wednesday that he was "cleared" of COVID-19 in time for Thanksgiving, even though he had only announced his infection the previous Friday – much younger than the 14-day quarantine period.

The Trump family celebrated Thanksgiving at Camp David with all of the president's adult children pictured at the presidential retreat on Friday before their father flew in after his golf game. It's not clear if Barron and First Lady Melania Trump joined them.

The president continues to refuse to publicly award the election to Biden, but eventually showed signs of a cave this week when he admitted he would leave the White House in January if the electoral college approves his rival's votes.

In another sign, he could come to terms with his election defeat, the sources said that the Daily Beast Trump is already planning his comeback for the 2024 White House race.

They said the president was in close talks with advisers on details, including when to introduce it, to keep him in the spotlight and stay away from his Democratic successor.

Trump reportedly bragged to his aide that he was confident he would continue to stand out in public and that the media would continue to provide him with coverage for saying Biden was "boring" and didn't get the reviews he makes, two of the people Sources said.

His plan to divert attention from inauguration day on January 20 would be a dramatic disregard for the process of peaceful transfer of power from one president to the next.

On January 20, 2017, when Trump was sworn in in the Oval Office, Obama and Biden were present with their wives and the administration tried to create a smooth transition to Trump in advance.

Former Presidents Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush also attended with their spouses – including Hillary Clinton, who lost to Trump in the 2016 election.

After the ceremony, Trump and First Lady Melania accompanied Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and Second Lady Karen Pence Obama and the outgoing First Lady Michelle Obama to a farewell ceremony.

Obama and Trump even shared a joke on the east steps of the US capital, and Biden and Trump were depicted shaking hands.

Obama gave his successor a handwritten letter – a tradition practiced by a handful of other presidents – congratulating Trump and offering his advice and support for his upcoming term in office.

& # 39; Congratulations on a remarkable run. Millions have put their hopes in you and we all, regardless of party, should hope for more prosperity and security during your tenure, ”he wrote.

Obama wished Trump "the best when you embark on this great adventure" and said he and Michelle "are ready to help in any way we can".

At the time, Trump called the note "beautiful".

The likelihood of this tradition continuing through January seems slim as Trump continues to make unsubstantiated claims of widespread election fraud and refuses to accept Biden as president-elect.

Trump spoke to reporters on Thanksgiving Day and refused to say whether he would even attend Biden's inauguration.

However, he said he would leave the White House if the electoral college certifies Biden's victory when it meets on December 14th.

& # 39; Sure I will. But you know that, ”he said when asked if he would vacate the building and allow a peaceful transfer of power in January.

He also admitted that it is "very difficult" to allow the choice to be made.

However, the following day, he appeared to go back to any attempt at a smooth transition, saying Biden could only enter the White House if he could prove that his votes were not "fraudulent."

"Biden can only enter the White House as President if he can demonstrate that his ridiculous" 80,000,000 votes "were not fraudulently or illegally obtained. When you see what happened in Detroit, Atlanta, Philadelphia and Milwaukee, massive electoral fraud , he has a big unsolvable problem! ”Trump tweeted on Friday.

& # 39; Biden has done poorly in big cities (Politico) except Detroit (more votes than people!), Philadelphia, Atlanta and Milwaukee, which he had to win. Unsurprisingly, they are all located in the major swing states and have long been known to be politically corrupt! & # 39;

Trump's campaign has shown no evidence of massive election fraud, and his team's legal efforts to cast votes have so far failed.

A hand count of ballots in Georgia confirmed Biden's victory there, and a hearing-style event in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania on Wednesday revealed no evidence of electoral fraud in that state.

It seems that Biden (on Wednesday) is unlikely to receive the same graces that he gave Trump on his inauguration

While he continues to refuse to resign publicly, he is set to prepare behind the scenes to run in 2024 to indicate that he has somewhat accepted defeat.

Trump is already looking to secure the support of prominent donors and allies to aid his race, with some having already pledged their support, the Daily Beast reported.

National Security Advisor Robert O'Brien has given his support for a Trump campaign by 2024, according to sources.

Two sources told Bloomberg Trump to O & # 39; Brien, Secretary of State Michael Pompeo and Vice President Mike Pence in the Oval Office 10 days after the election that he intended to run in 2024 if his litigation doesn't wipe out the election results.

"If you do that – and I think I speak for everyone in the room – we are 100 percent with you," O & # 39; Brien told Trump.

However, the sources said Pompeo and Pence had not pledged the same amount of support and "smiled but said nothing".
