On Thanksgiving day, President Joe Biden offered his message to a concerned nation. He told “Today” co-host Al Roker during the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade that “America is back.”
He also thanked the country’s service members and visited with the Coast Guard, and offered his hope that the nation would continue to rebound from the pandemic.
But it was former President Donald Trump who stole the show.
As Biden’s approval ratings tumble and the majority of the country appears dissatisfied with his job performance, Trump has stormed back into the spotlight.
He never went completely silent after exiting the White House in January, but now it seems he’s gearing up for a possible 2024 presidential run. He’s teased this announcement for much of 2021, in fact.
He was once quoted as saying that only “a bad call from a doctor” would keep him from running again.
And he has also remained very active within the Republican Party, routinely backing GOP candidates in their election bids. And all internal polls show Trump still has immense influence.
So, a lot of people were paying attention to Trump’s Thanksgiving message.
As it turns out, his supporters might have reason to celebrate:
President Donald J. Trump:
"A very interesting time in our Country, but do not worry, we will be great again—and we will all do it together. America will never fail, and we will never allow it to go in the wrong direction. Too many generations… pic.twitter.com/JXeCtRoRUh

Trump spokeswoman Liz Harrington posted these comments from the former POTUS, where he concluded by saying, “Enjoy your Thanksgiving knowing that a wonderful future lies ahead!”
He also continues to push his previous campaign slogan, “Make America Great Again.”
This has been amended in 2021 by Trump’s PAC to, “Make America Great Again, Again,” which definitely hints at another White House bid in 2024. Nothing has been confirmed yet, however.
But as Fox News
I am certainly thinking about it and we’ll see.
I think a lot of people will be very happy, frankly, with the decision, and probably will announce that after the midterms.
Prior to this statement, Trump had not given an expected time for his announcement. So now, Republicans and right-wing citizens are marking their calendars.
Many surveys and polls show Trump beating Biden in a hypothetical match-up right now, though that’s primarily due to Biden’s seriously flagging approval numbers.
But if those numbers don’t rise at some point in the next few months, it’s likely that Trump will gain even more confidence. And that could lead to some very good news after the 2022 midterms.
The GOP is already hoping for a “red wave” in those midterms, and many polls indicate that it’s a very real possibility.
We’re also hearing rumblings that Democrat voters and even some leaders are unhappy with Biden’s administration, which only compounds the President’s problems.
In the end, all this could lead to one thing: Trump’s return.
reminds us, Trump has been seriously considering it and teased:
