In Georgia, Trump campaigned on behalf of GOP Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler, competing next month against Democrats Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock. The re-election bids will decide control of the Senate. However, he framed most of the event around his own legacy and told the crowd his future political pursuits.
The people in attendance replied with huge cheers. However, the statements also display Trump’s acknowledgment of his defeat in elections.
Then, referring to the House of Representatives where Democrats currently have the majority, Trump added: "And we're going to take back the House in 2022."
Trump took the opportunity to tell his allies about his future plan to run a campaign in 2024.
"And then in 2024 - and hopefully I won't have to be a candidate - we're going to win back the White House again," Whereas, he also said that he doesn't want to wait until 2024.
"I don't want to wait until 2024," Trump said, "I want to go back three weeks."

As the president wrapped up his remarks, he said: "We will never, ever surrender."
This is the second time this week that Trump has teased another run in 2024, the first coming during a White House Christmas party on Tuesday (December 1), where he told guests, mainly Republican National Committee members, that he will run for president again in 2024, the same day as Biden's inauguration.
"It’s been an amazing four years," the president told his guests. Referring to his administration attempting to overturn the election result, Trump then said: "We are trying to do another four years. Otherwise, I'll see you in four years."
During the event, Trump put some false claims that he won the election, telling guests: "It’s certainly an unusual year. We won an election. But they don’t like that.
"I call it a rigged election, and I always will."
