Donald Trump teases supporters over 2024 election bid at Save America rally in Michigan | World | News

Mr Trump arrived in Michigan on Saturday because the forty fifth President continued his ‘Save America’ tour. The ex-POTUS appeared on stage at his rally in Washington Township and delivered a speech for nearly two hours.

During his speech, Mr Trump, who lost Michigan together with Arizona, Georgia, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin to Joe Biden in the 2020 US Presidential Election, teased supporters about launching a 3rd bid for the White House in 2024.

The crowd roared as Trump stated: “If I do make you happy, would anybody here like to see me run?”

He later added: “There is no mountain we cannot climb, there is no summit we cannot reach, there is no challenge we cannot meet, there is no victory we cannot have.

“We won’t bend, we won’t break, we won’t yield, we’ll by no means give in, we’ll by no means quit, we’ll by no means ever again down.”

Victory in the next election would make Trump just the second Commander-in-Chief to serve two non-consecutive terms in the Oval Office after Grover Cleveland achieved a similar feat in the late 19th century.

However, Mr Trump also used his appearance in the Great Lake State to peddle the unfounded claim the last election was rigged.

Mr Trump said: “The Presidential Election was rigged and stolen and due to that our nation is being destroyed.”

The ex-POTUS’ rally in Michigan comes just days after yet another opinion poll suggested he could make a return to the White House in 2024.

The Harvard/Harris survey gave the 45th President a six-point lead over Mr Biden.

The swing towards Mr Trump could be enough for the ex-businessman to flip the states he lost to Mr Biden in 2020 back into the Republican column.

But he also used his speech to slam his successor on several policy areas, including Mr Biden’s response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

He said: “This invasion of Ukraine would by no means have occurred if I used to be in the White House, not even an opportunity, would’ve by no means occurred.”

Immigration, a key issue in Mr Trump’s successful 2016 election campaign, also returned to the forefront.

In an attack against Mr Biden’s decision to repeal the pandemic-era border restrictions, dubbed ‘Title 42, he said it would result in a “deluge of unlawful immigration” and added “we’re being invaded by tens of millions and tens of millions of individuals”.
