Republican Study Committee Chairman, Jim Banks has revealed Trump’s plans and mindset following the raid on his Mar-A-Lago home on Monday.
Banks met Trump the following evening at his golf club in Bedminster along with numerous other high-profile supporters including Reps. Brian Babin, Mike Kelly, Claudia Tenney, Victoria Spartz, Pat Fallon, and Eric Houchin.
According to Banks, the raid spurred Trump into setting his mind on running for president again in 2024. Instead of upsetting, angering, or encouraging the former president to retreat into his shell, Banks said Trump is now more determined than ever to take on the left-wing establishment:
“He didn’t seem defeated in the least bit—he was very fired up, very upbeat,” Banks told Fox.
“It was a great three hour-long conversation about what House Republicans are doing now to win back the majority and what we are going to do with it when we win,” he continued.

The Indiana Rep. went on to say that Trump had “made up his mind” about a new bid to get back in the White House in 2024, and it’s now “only a matter of time before he will make that decision known”.

“He only helps us win back more seats in November.
“The Republican Party is bigger and stronger than ever before because of Donald Trump’s leadership.”
It comes after Trump accused FBI agents who ransacked his Florida home on Monday of being part of a desperate, left-wing coup that was organized, so he claims, by Biden.
“Biden knew all about this, just like he knew all about Hunter’s “deals”, the former president wrote on his social media outlet, Truth Social.
“A horrible thing that took place yesterday at Mar-a-Lago,” continued the post.
“We are no better than a third-world country, a banana republic.
“It is a continuation of Russia, Russia, Russia, Impeachment Hoax #1, Impeachment Hoax # 2, the no collusion Mueller Report, and more.
“To make matters worse it is all, in my opinion, a coordinated attack with Radical Left Democrat state & local D.A.’s & A.G.’s.”
The FBI apparently left “no stone unturned” in the raid as they searched for undeclared White House documents, all of which are legally supposed to be submitted to the National Archives.
Agents reportedly even went through intimate items owned by Melania, including her wardrobes.
Yesterday, Trump released a teasing campaign-style promotional video to social media which seemed to further indicate he may announce his 2024 campaign very soon.
The video critically pointed out all the problems in the country which unfolded under Biden’s leadership including the record-breaking inflation levels, Putin’s invasion, rising energy costs, excess Covid deaths, and the erosion of free speech.

At the end of the video, raucous crowds wearing MAGA hats smile and cheer as Trump delivers a speech to say that:
“There is no mountain we cannot climb. There is no summit we cannot reach. There is no challenge we cannot beat. There is no victory we cannot have.”
The powerful message concludes with the words “the best is yet to come” appearing on the black screen.
It really is only a matter of time now before Trump officially launches his 2024 campaign.
