Hillary Clinton predicts Trump will announce he is running AGAIN in 2024 and says he ‘is not going away’

FORMER Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton predicted that President Donald Trump will make a bid for the White House again in 2024 rather than ride into the sunset. 

Clinton shared her view on Trump’s future in a wide-ranging interview on actors Dax Shepard and Monica Padman’s Armchair Expert podcast on Monday.

“Trump's not going away,” said Clinton, who was the 2016 Democratic nominee and lost to him.

“He may finally have to leave the White House, but he's going to turn around the next day and say he's running for president again.”

Clinton continued that Trump is “going to be out there, he's going to have rallies, because it's like lifeblood to him. He's probably going to be owning some kind of media outlet where he's going to be peddling his stuff everyday.”

The former Secretary of State said that Democrats have somehow “got to break through the noise” surrounding Trump and focus on how to promote President-elect Joe Biden’s polices. 

Clinton’s prediction did not fall out of line with recent reports and comments from the Trump camp.

Shortly after Election Day, Bryan Lanza, the former communications director for Trump’s transition team, said Trump can "make a strong case to run again.”

"There's nobody in the Republican Party that can challenge President Trump in the primaries,” Lanza told the Today show at the time. 

Lanza claimed, incorrectly, that Trump “would be younger than Biden is now” if he runs in 2024.

Trump would be 78 years old, which is one year older than Biden’s current age. 

In a separate interview with CNBC, Lanza said he “wouldn't be surprised to see [Trump] on the ticket in 2024” if he loses the election, which has not yet been certified. 

On Saturday, three sources told The Daily Beast that Trump has had conversations with his close advisers and confidants about possibly launching a 2024 campaign, and that he could hold a related event on Biden’s inauguration week. 

Clinton, meanwhile, commended Biden for having “fabulous policies,” and blamed media outlets and social media for gravitating forward controversy instead of job policies and plans to boost the economy.

“We've got to figure out how to translate that, and everything [Biden] wants to do, into a narrative that captures those eyeballs,” Clinton said. 

“Because we live in this time where controversy, the algorithms favor it drive it and you think that's what is the only reality.” 

The former first lady added that the 2020 election was a “repudiation of Trump and everything he was trying to do to this nation.”

Clinton also shared how hard it was on her to lose the 2016 election to Trump.

“One of the most difficult transitions I've ever had to go through was unexpectedly not becoming president, because I thought I was on the path to becoming president,” she said.

“I had a very clear idea of what I wanted to do."
