Left-wing comedian John Stewart said in an interview at the 22nd annual New Yorker Festival stated that President Donald Trump has a “very good chance” of winning the 2024 presidential election if he runs.
In the interview, the comedian said Trump has a good chance and that his camp is being smarter about it.
He also said: “The danger of the coup — again, Jan. 6 is the TV event moment of it. It’s the special that came out. And that’s what all the TV networks were focused on.”
Stewart added that the former president has a knack at understanding what will make television narratives move. However, he said that he believes “they really learned from this exercise was there are really specific pivot points within the American electoral system, and those pivot points are generally the administration of elections run by partisans, but not ideologues.”
Even if the former president has yet to officially announce his candidacy, he is making it more obvious that he will run again.
On Saturday, Trump seemed to be in full campaign mode while in Iowa, where, historically, the elections trail begin.
There, the former president rallied against Nancy Pelosi for pushing the U.S. up to the point of bankruptcy.
Trump said: “What they are going to do by passing this thing that’s going to kill our nation … All Americans of common sense — Republican, Democrat, and independent — must stand firm and you must really stand strong and firm against Biden, crazy Nancy Pelosi. She’s a nut job. And the extreme power grab.”
He went on to say: “We must declare with one united voice that we cannot allow America to ever become a socialist country. That’s what they’re doing. And I really think it’s a step beyond. I think it’s going to be a communist country.”
