Reading Time: < 1 minutes

Former President Donald Trump returned to Washington for the first time since leaving office Tuesday, and hinted at running for office again in 2024.

He vigorously repeated his false election claims that sparked the January 6 insurrection at the nearby Capitol.

“It was a catastrophe, that election. A disgrace to our country,” he said, insisting despite all evidence that he had won in 2020.

“We may just have to do it again, he said, repeating as he does in all recent appearances the ever-clearer hints that he will run again in 2024.

Trump’s appearance in the nation’s capital was his first trip back since January 20, 2021, when President Joe Biden was sworn into office despite Trump’s frantic efforts to remain in power.

His visit comes as allies have urged him to spend more time talking about his vision for the future and less relitigating the 2020 election as he prepares to announce an expected 2024 White House campaign.

Trump spoke hours after former Vice President Mike Pence, a potential 2024 rival, outlined his own Freedom Agenda ” in a speech nearby.

While the former president remains consumed by the election he falsely claims was stolen from him a year and a half ago, Pence again implored conservatives to stop looking backward and focus on the future as he mulls his own.
