Trump has privately held discussions with aides about the possibility of running for president again in 2024, according to Axios.
The news would mark the most significant indication that Trump understands he has lost, analysts say.
Under US law, presidents can serve for two four-year terms.
If Trump, who remains intensely popular among Republicans, does choose to run again, his presence will cast a large shadow over the party’s current field of up-and-comers. It would make it much harder for other Republicans to gain a foothold in the spotlight with Trump still seeking the highest office.
To remind you, Trump bested a field of 17 Republicans to become the party’s presidential nominee in 2016.
One person who experts speculate could run, but who may now want to consider dropping out: Donald Trump Jr.
The president’s eldest son, who is very popular among Trump’s rural white supporters, has been thought to have political ambitions of his own.
