CITY OF WASHINGTON, D.C. (March 17, 2021)) – Former President Donald Trump said on Tuesday he would decide whether to make another run for the White House after congressional elections in November 2022.
Trump has said he is committed to helping fellow Republicans try to win back control of the U.S. House of Representatives and the Senate in the 2022 elections, which will be an early referendum on the leadership of Democratic President Joe Biden.
Former White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders hosted a fundraiser–and was surprised by President Donald J. Trump’s appearance. Sanders tweeted “Great weekend on the campaign trail featuring a surprise appearance at one of my events by President Trump.

“I think we have a very, very good chance of taking back the House,” Trump said in an interview with Fox News. “You have a good chance to take back the Senate and frankly, we’ll make our decision after that.”
Trump told Fox News host Maria Bartiromo that his supporters appeared ready to back him again if he ran.
“Based on every poll, they want me to run again, but we’re going to take a look and we’ll see,” Trump said.
Trump also recommended during his Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) speech —and today again urged citizens to take the coronavirus vaccine. Polls show that some of the Republicans are less trustworthy of the vaccine.
“But again,” he continued, “we have our freedoms and we have to live by that and I agree with that also. But it is a great vaccine. It is a safe vaccine and it is something that works.”
“It’s a great vaccine. It’s a safe vaccine. And it’s something that works,” said Trump, who received a vaccine in January.
“I would recommend it and I would recommend it to a lot of people that don’t want to get it, and a lot of those people voted for me, frankly.”
Trump has said he will campaign in the 2022 elections for candidates who back him and his policies – and against those Republicans he views as disloyal. He also is making plans to set up a super PAC political organization to support candidates he endorses.
