Donald Trump suggested he might run again for president in 2024 as he hosted a crowded holiday reception at the White House on Tuesday evening that appeared to break coronavirus rules. The president told a crowd of Republican National Committee members that he could make another bid for the White House, his strongest comments on seeking another term since he lost the election to Joe Biden. "It's been an amazing four years," Mr Trump told the crowd. "We're trying to do another four years. Otherwise, I'll see you in four years." The video of Mr Trump's appearance was streamed live on Facebook by one attendee, former Oklahoma Republican Party Chair Pam Pollard. It showed dozens of people crammed into the Cross Hall of the White House state floor, standing closely together. Many seen in the video were not wearing masks. The Trumps began hosting holiday receptions this week, intent on celebrating a final season before Trump leaves office on January 20. According to social media postings reviewed by the Associated Press, the events have featured large crowds of often maskless attendees gathered indoors – violating the public health guidance the US government has pressed the nation to follow during the holiday season as cases of Covid-19 skyrocket across the country (see graph below).
