President Trump hinted during a holiday reception Tuesday evening at the White House of running for office again in 2024 – as he continues to allege widespread voter fraud in this year’s election.
“It’s been an amazing four years,” the president told the crowd, which included many Republican National Committee members. “We’re trying to do another four years. Otherwise, I’ll see you in four years.”
Attendee Pam Pollard, national committeewoman for the Oklahoma GOP, streamed footage of Trump’s remarks live on Facebook.
Trump is heard continuing to claim election fraud to explain his defeat by President-elect Joe Biden.
But his latest allegations came just hours after Attorney General William Barr said the Justice Department had not uncovered evidence of widespread voter fraud — and had seen nothing that would change the outcome of the election.
“It’s certainly an unusual year. We won an election. But they don’t like that,” Trump told the group, adding: “I call it a rigged election, and I always will.”
The commander-in-chief told the attendees – many of whom were not wearing face masks – that “it’s been an amazing four years,” according to CNN.
He also asked if people were watching the “fraud hearings” with his legal team, led by attorney Rudy Giuliani, with state legislatures in an attempt to overturn the election.
“Honestly, this is a disgrace,” he said from the White House’s grand staircase, according to the network.
Trump has yet to concede to Biden, even though his administration has given the green light for the official presidential transition to begin.
