President Donald J. Trump’s former acting DNI and first openly gay US Cabinet official in US history is saying what over 74 million Americans have been openly and secretly wishing for— that Trump wants to run for the presidency again.
On January 19, Grenell posted a photo of himself speaking with President Trump on the phone. Grenell wrote:
Serving America in his Administration was the honor of my life.
Just got a final call from President Trump 45. He was in great spirits reflecting on the past 4 years. We talked personnel choices, America First successes, MAGA rallies, gay conservatives & California politics.

Grenell, who is one of President Trump’s most ardent supporters, recently spoke out about President Trump and his plans for the future.
The Epoch Times reports – “Donald Trump is the head of the Republican Party still, let’s make no mistake about that. He’s still the most popular politician. And he’s going to decide what he wants to do,” former U.S. Ambassador to Germany Ric Grenell said on Newsmax over the weekend.
“He’s told me personally, multiple times, that he does want to run again. So we’ll see if that holds and how that comes about; I think we’ve got a long ways to go,” Grenell added.
Almost immediately after the election ended, speculation about Trump running in 2024 started. Polls show Trump remains popular among Republican voters, which is one reason he shouldn’t try to start a new party, Grenell argued.
“Clearly, Donald Trump is a Republican and should run again as a Republican,” he said.
In his first comments since leaving office, Trump told a reporter last week that he will make a comeback in some way, but did not elaborate. On the day his successor was sworn in, Trump told supporters, “We will be back in some form.”
Jason Miller, another former Trump adviser, said earlier this month that the president would be involved in the 2022 midterms.
“President Trump is going to make sure we get the House back in 2022,” Miller said on “War Room.”
“He’s got a ton of money. He’s the biggest name. He’s going to get that done.”
