Are you ready for Trump 2.0?
In a brief video filmed at the Trump National golf course that was posted to social media, former President Donald Trump sounded like he is thinking more seriously about a 2024 candidacy.
Or perhaps he is just trolling the left-wing corporate media and blue-check liberals. That would be par for the course, as it were.
While Trump, who was wearing a red MAGA hat, and his party were casually chatting on the links, one of those in the group could be heard off-camera saying “First on tee, 45th president of the United States.”
Trump, who is known for many unfiltered moments, some of those in which he is obviously joking, responded “Forty-fifth and 47th.” Another person in the party said, “I love that.”
The ex-POTUS then proceeded to tee off, a drive which the first speaker described as beautiful.

Trump — who has started to hold rallies again and seems to have stepped up media interviews — has not been reticent about identifying the many failures of the Biden administration (or regime, as some describe it).
President Donald J. Trump:
"Biden is working hard to try and deflect the incompetent job he is doing, and has done, on the horrible Afghanistan withdrawal (surrender), the Borders, COVID, Inflation, loss of Energy Independence, and much more. Everything he touches turns… pic.twitter.com/rFavehYIYZ

The ex-president has often hinted at another run for the White House but has also said that for legal reasons in connection with campaign finance regulations, he intends to make a decision at the appropriate time, which presumably will come after the congressional midterm elections later this year.

While Biden’s approval rating is tanking in just about every poll, including those leaning left,, the Real Clear Politics tracker of six polls currently gives Trump about a five-point edge over Democrat Biden in a hypothetical matchup (assuming Biden even seeks a second term).

Trump also supposedly has a commanding lead over any GOP rival based on a Harvard CAPS/Harris poll, according to The Hill.
In a hypothetical eight-person GOP presidential primary, Trump holds a clear edge, garnering 57 percent support among Republican voters. [Florida Gov. Ron] DeSantis and former Vice President Mike Pence are nearly deadlocked at 12 percent and 11 percent, respectively. No other would-be candidate tested in the poll registers double-digit support.
Should Trump forgo another campaign for the White House, however, DeSantis would supplant him as the frontrunner. The Florida governor scores 30 percent support in a field that doesn’t include Trump, while Pence takes second place at 24 percent.
A separate poll, from Politico/Morning Consult claims that Biden would lose to a generic Republican by nine points, but edge Trump by a margin of 45 percent to 44 percent. The same poll also reveals that Trump would win the GOP nomination “bigly.”
As alluded to above, DeSantis would be the obvious heir apparent if Trump declines to run or even perhaps after the second Trump term. Politics is typically a day-to-day proposition, however, rather than projecting years into the future. The corporate media has tried to stir up a feud between Trump and DeSantis, but that’s probably exaggerated.
Joe Biden told ABC News in December 2021 that a possible rematch with Trump increases his (Biden’s) prospect of running again.
