While the appearance on the ground is that Donad Trump and his legal team are fighting tooth and nail to secure a victory in the 2020 election still, there seems to be another bit of gossip floating around the streets of Washington DC this week.
It has been reported earlier that President Trump has long been eyeing a media empire for his post-presidency life, and his focus would be to knock Fox News down a peg or two in the process. Of course, these rumors have only been whispered by “anonymous sources” and “off the record”.
On Thursday, some even wilder rumors came to light as well.
Similarly, The Washington Postreports that Trump’s team, which is mounting legal challenges in battleground states, has “no grand strategy to reverse the election results,” and The Associated Press writes that Trump has a “greater understanding of his predicament” than you might think but thinks he “needs to keep fighting almost as performance.”
And that’s not all.
[…]he’s reportedly interested in launching a digital media company to rival Fox News, and according to Reuters, he has told allies “he planned to run for president in 2024 and could announce it by the end of the year.” The Post is reporting the same, writing, “Rather than talking about a second term, Trump has been matter-of-factly discussing a possible 2024 campaign — an indication that he knows his time as president is coming to an end, at least for now.”
If we thought the pre-election atmosphere was silly season, well, we ain’t seen nothin’ yet.
