Mick Mulvaney, Trump’s former acting chief of staff, said he expects the president to run again in 2024.

The former presidential aide stated that the president doesn’t like losing.

He said:

"Now, I think folks are starting to realize that if Donald Trump loses, he might be the guy" to run in 2024, and "I'm telling you absolutely."
"I would absolutely expect the president to stay involved in politics and would absolutely put him on a shortlist of people who are likely to run in 2024," he added. "He doesn't like losing."

Mulvaney hinged his argument of a Trump presidential comeback on the fact that the president technically will be younger than Joe Biden is now, four years from now.

Trump has continued to question the legitimacy of the US presidential election in which projected Joe Biden was projected as the winner.

Under the US constitution, a person can serve as president for a maximum of two four-year terms but the terms do not have to be consecutive.

Meanwhile, the projected winner of the United States' 2020 presidential election, Joe Biden, has appointed 59-year-old Ron Klain as his chief of staff.

Al Jazeera reported that Biden who is yet to be officially certified as the winner is committed to building his administration even as President Trump refuses to accept the election results and concede defeat.

The newly appointed chief of staff, Klain, had earlier served as Biden’s chief of staff when the 77-year-old was vice president under President Barack Obama.
