Trump Says He’s POTUS 47, Not Just 45

The lingering suspicions about the fairness of the 2020 presidential election continue on to this day.

Trump’s Strongest Hint Yet

Shortly after leaving the White House, Donald Trump began hinting he would be running again in 2024.

Since the spring of 2021, his statements, media interviews, and public appearances suggested ever more strongly that he would be a contender for the White House in 2024.

When Biden lost the war in Afghanistan to a bunch of medieval-minded, ragtag Taliban terrorists, Trump almost made up his mind to announce his bid for another term as president of the United States.

However, he was dissuaded from doing that by his advisors, since announcing his candidacy would trigger election campaign rules with respect to fundraising and media appearances.

Triggering those this early on would have put Trump at a disadvantage, compared with other potential candidates who would announce their bids in the future.

Now, however, President Trump has made the strongest hint yet that he will be running in the 2024 election. Trump recently commented he is both the 45th and the 47th president of the United States.

Trump Said It While Golfing

He made the comment on a cell phone video during an outing at his own golf course in Miami, Florida.

An unidentified man was filming Trump preparing to take a swing and said, “this is the 45th president of the United States.” Trump was then quick to correct him by quipping, “45th and 47th.

This drew an immediate reaction from the group accompanying Trump on the golf course, all of whom applauded. The cell phone video filmed at the Trump National Golf Course in Florida was posted on Twitter by numerous accounts.

On the course, Trump can be seen wearing his signature “Make America Great Again” baseball hat. As Trump quipped that he’s the 45th and 47th president, the person recording him cheered in praise.

After that, Trump hit the ball, causing the narrator and another man to declare his shot. Trump then advised the other players to “keep it low” because the wind was “stronger than you think.”

Analysts have remarked Trump not only retained his electoral base, but also even reached a cult-like status among Republican voters. The former president amassed a “war chest” of at least $115 million, solely from donations through his website.

After holding several huge, campaign-style rallies throughout the country in 2021, Trump has another rally coming up, which is set to be held in Texas.

If Trump runs and wins the 2024 presidential election, he will become only the second president in US history to serve two, non-consecutive terms.

The only other president with two non-consecutive terms is Democrat Grover Cleveland. Cleveland served as president of the United States from 1885-1889 and then again from 1893-1897.
