Will he run his campaign from a prison cell?

Trump’s former chief of staff claimed Trump could run for president in the next election if he were to lose to Joe Biden this time around.

Mick Mulvaney, now the U.S. special envoy to Northern Ireland, said that the president could unite the country in 2024, in a webinar with the Institute of International and European Affairs.

Mulvaney told Michael Collins, director general of the institute, that 2024 would be the election that will “unite” the country after a “fork in the road.”

When asked about who he thinks would throw their hat in the race, Mulvaney said Trump.

“I’m telling you, absolutely, I would absolutely expect the president to stay involved in politics,” he said. “I would absolutely put him on the shortlist of people who are likely to run in 2024. He doesn’t like losing.”

Well, whether he likes losing or not Trump definitely lost this election. 

As of this post, Biden essentially has Nevada in the bag with over 11,000 points separating him from Trump, and the same holds true for Arizona where Biden leads by a cool 47,000 plus. 

The margins are slimmer in two new states that Biden just took the lead in, with Biden leading in Pennsylvania by about 5.000 votes and in Georgia by just over 1,000. However like Nevada and Arizona, the new votes being counted are favoring Joe Biden, so these states are looking good as well. 

Taken together those states easily exceed the threshold of 270 and give Biden a comfortable 306 electoral votes which means his lead is secured, and once the news media declares for the former Vice President that is when the fat lady sings, and the fat man howls in rage. 

Despite his Twitter tantrums and barrage of lawsuits, there is no chance for Trump to lie, steal, or beg his way into holding onto the presidency. 

As for running again in 2024, I have no doubt that he would want to, but I really do think that he will be too busy dealing with the flood of lawsuits coming his way to do much campaigning.
