DONALD Trump is "thinking very, very hard" about a 2024 Presidential run, his friend Nigel Farage revealed today.
He said no other candidate could match The Don's "charisma" and he has “a massive decision to make”.
It comes after reports at the weekend Trump was setting up a campaign HQ to begin fundraising.
Mr Farage renewed his bromance with Mr Trump with a half-hour meeting at Mar-a-Lago on Monday evening.
He said the ex-president is seriously weighing up a potential third campaign for the White House.
“He has got a massive decision to make,” Mr Farage told today's Daily Telegraph. “He is thinking very, very hard.”
During their meeting, he says he told Mr Trump: “You’re the only guy that can do it. No one has your charisma.”
Mr Farage added: “He listened. He’s in a listening frame of mind.”
He also revealed the ex-president looks fit and well and has lost weight since leaving offfice.
“He’s playing lots of golf and loving it. He’s really very happy,” he said.
Asked for his views on the current administration, he said: “I don’t think he’s bothered about Mr Biden at all.
“He doesn’t really think he’s in the lead and he thinks the Democrats are drifting in a leftwards direction.”
SORROW FOR THE QUEEN
The former Ukip and Brexit party leader said Mr Trump was “in a remarkably private mode, not a broadcast mode.”
He also expressed his sorrow that the Queen is “going through a really tough time” following the death of her husband, Prince Philip.
“His admiration for her is unrivalled with anybody else in the world,” said Mr Farage.
“I don’t think he respects anybody else quite like he does the Queen.
“He loves the UK and he loves the Queen. He was concerned at the pictures of her being by herself, looking cut up.”
Mr Trump, a Brexit supporter, famously hailed Mr Farage as the "King of Europe"
Last summer the president waived a Covid travel ban to allow the British politician into the US to attend one of his rallies.
Mr Farage was back for another election rally in October when he heaped praise on Mr Trump as "the single most resilient and brave person I have ever met in my life."
The former MEP – who says he has quit politics – is in the US for a six week speaking tour organised by FreedomWorks, a conservative group with five million supporters on Facebook.
He has already met Florida governor Ron DeSantis, the bookies' favorite to be the GOP candidate in 2024.
Earlier this month, polling showed most Republican voters think the 2020 election was "stolen" and Mr Trump should run again in 2024.
Last week Mr Trump told Sean Hannity he "misses helping people" and he's more popular now than before the last election.
He said of a potential 2024 run: "I am looking at it very seriously, beyond seriously.
"From a legal standpoint, I don't really want to talk about it yet."
