He said:

"It's been an amazing four years. We're trying to do another four years. Otherwise, I'll see you in four years."

UK Metro reported that dozens of people who attended the party did not wear face masks, including many Republican national committee members.

This is the first time Trump will be confirming the speculation of a planned return to the presidency.

However, past reports claimed that the president's inner circle had been discussing the matter.

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

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

Meanwhile, Rudolph Giuliani, the personal defence lawyer to Donald Trump has discussed the possibility of receiving a pre-emptive pardon from the US President before he leaves office, according to The New York Times.

The international media publication citing two people with knowledge of the discussion noted that though it's not clear who brought up the conversion, both men recently talked about a pardon for Giuliani.
