Former President Trump hinted that he was considering running for president again in 2024 while paying a visit to the New York Police Department's (NYPD) 17th precinct on the 20th anniversary of 9/11.
Trump, a New York native, briefly spoke on the attacks that took place on September 11, 2001, and praised all of the brave men and women who fight to protect our country from home as well as overseas.
Trump called the 20th anniversary of 9/11 a "very sad day for a lot of reasons," referring to both the attack and the botched withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan in recent weeks, and praised the brave NYPD officers.
"I grew up with you and you are New York's finest. You're incredible people. I know many of you," said Trump.
The former president also called Biden's withdrawal from Afghanistan "gross incompetence" and criticized other aspects of the U.S. withdrawal.
A New York Police officer asked the former president of his plans to run a second time to which Trump responded, "That's a tough question."
"Actually, for me, it's an easy question. I mean, I know what I'm going to do, but I'm not supposed to be talking about it yet from the standpoint of campaign finance laws, which, frankly, are ridiculous," said Trump.
"But I think you're going to be happy," the former president said.
Trump went on to tout the economy, national jobs numbers, regulatory rollbacks and increased financing for the military under his administration. He also suggested that his administration was "getting along with the other side" while he was in office.
This isn't the first time the former president and his allies have implied Trump will run again in 2024. A few months ago during a "Hannity" interview, he seemed to suggest his bid for the Republican ticket was a sure thing.
