From Fox News:
Donald Trump revealed on Thursday that he is “100%” thinking about running for president again in 2024 and would “certainly” consider Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis as his running mate.
The former president made the comments during an exclusive interview on “Mornings with Maria” on Thursday, the morning after President Biden’s address to a joint session of Congress during his most high-profile speech to the nation yet, on the eve of his 100th day in office.
Trump noted that DeSantis is “a friend of mine” and “a great guy.”
A spokesman for DeSantis did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
Former President Trump also discussed his platform for a potential 2024 run, which he said would include protecting the Second Amendment, the border, tax increases and the energy industry.
During the exclusive interview with host Maria Bartiromo, Trump blasted President Biden for excluding the border crisis from his address.
Trump pointed out that “tens of thousands of people are pouring into our country” at “a level that has never been seen before.” He noted that those “pouring into” the U.S. include criminals and that the Biden administration “is doing absolutely nothing” to stop them.
A White House spokesperson did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
President Biden has scrapped a number of former President Trump’s immigration policies, which included the construction of the border wall and having asylum seekers remain in Mexico instead of staying in the U.S. while they wait for their cases to be heard.
The moves have led to a record surge in migrants, including unaccompanied minors, that has strained capacity at immigration facilities in recent weeks.
Trump also pointed out that the ‘Remain in Mexico’ policy was “a great thing,” but the Biden administration “gave it up” and “now everyone is pouring into our country.”
He also blasted Biden’s energy policies, noting that the U.S. was energy independent for the first time and “we’re not going to be energy independent in a couple of months.”
