In the last few months, former President Donald Trump repeatedly teased another presidential run in 2024, and he did it again on the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

He paid tribute to first responders at a New York City police precinct and firehouse in Manhattan during which a police officer asked if he plans to try and return to the White House in 2024, or maybe run for New York City mayor, reported Fox News. Trump answered by saying, "I know what I'm going to do, but I'm not supposed to be talking about it yet from the standpoint of campaign finance laws, which, frankly, are ridiculous." He concluded by saying that "I think you are going to be happy."

Trump also issued a statement that was addressed to the "great people" of the US. According to him, Sept. 11 is very a sad day and it represents great sorrow for America.

He thanked police, fire, and first responders of every kind for their bravery that was displayed on the day two decades ago.

Then he touched upon the Afghanistan crisis, criticized President Joe Biden’s handling of the US withdrawal and evacuation from the country amid its takeover by the Taliban. He shared that several were injured and overall, 250 people were killed in Afghanistan in the past few days. He said, "We had $85 billion of the finest and most sophisticated military equipment taken from us without even a shot being fired."

Referring to Biden, he said that the leader of the US was made to look like a fool and that is something that can never be allowed to happen. He felt that it was caused by leaders who didn’t understand what was happening along with incredible weakness, and bad planning. Trump said that sadly, America will be wounded for long, but told its citizens not to fear, and promised the nation will be made great again.

Last week in an interview with Fox News, Trump called Twitter a “failed operation” before he joined it more than a decade ago. Talking about the social media platform, the former President said that a lot of people thought that it was bad for him, but he disagreed. Since January he has been banned from the platform. He shared that people are saying it has become a very boring place now.

He again mentioned that he is suing the company along with Google and Facebook, and branded them "sick." Trump accused the tech giants of illegally silencing him. Then he spoke about how Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg used to visit him in the White House to "kiss my a**." And now he has been blocked from Facebook, which he finds "just sort of crazy."
