Former White House advisor Jason Miller believes that Donald Trump will “definitely” run for president in 2024.

“I would say the likelihood is somewhere between 99 and 100%,” Miller told Cheddar News on Thursday. “I think he’s definitely running in 2024. I had a good conversation with him last night, I’m going to go see him in a couple days here. He hasn’t said the magical words to me, but if you talk to him for a few minutes it’s pretty clear that he’s running.”

“I think what we’ve seen in Afghanistan recently has really just emboldened that,” Miller continued.

Miller’s comments are the latest from a Trump ally saying that the former president will seek a return to the Oval Office. Republican Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan told a group in Dallas County, Iowa, Thursday that he thinks Trump will once again seek the Party’s nomination.

“I think he’s gonna run. I want him to run,” Jordan said.

New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman echoed Jordan’s comments, tweeting that Trump will declare “sooner rather than later.”

Trump has repeatedly teased a 2024 run. He told The Daily Wire’s Candace Owens in May that his decision would make people “very, very happy” in a May interview. He also confirmed to Fox News’ Sean Hannity in June that he had made a decision about running. (RELATED: REPORT: Trump To Resume Rallies Next Month Amid Hints At 2024 Run)

Recent polling suggests that Trump would be a front-runner for the Republican nomination, but not a prohibitive favorite. He came in second to Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis in the Western Conservative Summit straw poll, with 74% of voters approving of DeSantis as the Republican nominee, and 71% approving of Trump. A Quinnipiac University poll conducted in August found that 60% of Americans viewed another Trump run as bad for the country, while 32% viewed another run as good.

If Trump were to win the 2024 presidential election, he would become the second president to serve two non-consecutive terms in office. Democrat Grover Cleveland was president from 1885-1889 and 1893-1897.
