In his first public remarks since leaving Washington, D.C., Donald Trump said he will attempt a comeback, but did not state the timeline of when he intends to make his moves. “We’ll do something, but not just yet,” Trump told journalist Rob Crilly of the Washington Examiner on Jan. 22, 2021.
Trump, who was known to go on tangents at press conferences during his presidency, made the comment in the Grill Room of the Trump International Golf Club where he was dining with friends, according to the outlet. The comment also marked Trump‘s “first words to a journalist” since leaving office, but that was all he would say after an assistant rushed in to stop Crilly from asking further questions.
Trump had hinted at a non-consecutive term run for president in 2024 after he lost the 2020 election to Joe Biden, but quickly changed his mind after being told that he had to provide a “new round of financial documents that would make him vulnerable to his ongoing criminal and civil investigations and lawsuits,” per Politico.
Besides his criminal and civil investigations, Trump will also have to overcome the results of his impeachment trial.
