While out for a round of golf with his friends, former President Donald Trump declared himself President Joe Biden's successor in the Oval Office.
On Wednesday, video emerged on social media of Trump and his friends playing golf on one of his courses. In the process of teeing off, Trump declared himself not only the "45th" president, but also the "47th" commander-in-chief.
"First on tee," his friend announces, "45th president of the United States."
"45th and 47th," Trump replies.
The declaration is met with cheers. "I love that," one man says.
Trump has not yet formally declared whether or not he will run in 2024, but has hinted at the possibility many times in the past few months. In September 2021, for example, when asked if he would run for president again, Trump replied that it was "an easy question," adding, "I think you're going to be happy."
Current polls suggest that he is among the top choices for Republicans in 2024, along with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis. As The Hill reports, a new Harvard CAPS/Harris poll shows Trump garnering 57 percent of Republican support, with the Florida governor coming in "distant second" at 12 percent.
