ORLANDO, Fla. – Donald Trump on Thursday told Fox News that he is considering running for president again in 2024 and would “certainly” consider Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis as his running mate.

The former president said he is “100%” thinking about the opportunity in an interview on “Mornings with Maria,” hosted by Maria Bartiromo, a day after President Joe Biden addressed a joint session of Congress.
