Former President Donald Trump is reportedly planning on announcing a 2024 presidential bid within weeks of the midterm elections, according to several reports, which cite anonymous sources.

During a Thursday night rally in Iowa, Trump told the crowd: “I will very, very probably do it again … Get ready!”

Trump also said in a recent interview with Americano Media that “I have already in my mind made it. But very shortly – and I will be announcing it very shortly. I’ll be letting people know very quickly.”

One source close to the former president said the announcement could come within two weeks after the elections, while another anonymous adviser said it would likely happen after Thanksgiving or early 2023, CBS News reported.

Other sources said Trump’s inner circle is preparing to announce the bid on Nov. 14, and if so, the announcement could be followed by several political events, Axios reported. (RELATED: ‘Anybody Not Named Trump’ Could Win In 2024, Paul Ryan Says)

Trump’s spokesperson Taylor Budowich said he is “not commenting on the never-ending media speculation and rumors,” according to CBS News.

“As President Trump has said, Americans should go vote up and down the ballot for Republicans, and he will continue that message tomorrow night in Pennsylvania.”

Trump has had a habit of hinting at running again since he left office, saying in July that he already “made that decision.”

Trump told New York Magazine he was trying to perfectly time his announcement, taking the midterms into consideration.

“Do I go before or after? That will be my big decision. I just think that there are certain assets to before. Let people know. I think a lot of people would not even run if I did that because, if you look atet polls, they don’t even register.”
