The U.S. 2024 presidential elections is more than two years away, but former President Donald Trump has been dreaming of victory as he declared himself the 47th President.
He made the declaration while playing golf according to a video shared on Instagram on Wednesday.
Trump was walking to the first tee at one of his golf clubs when one of the people he was playing with said, ‘Now on the tee, the 45th president of the United States’.
The video was shared on Instagram by TheYeshivaWorld.com, a News & media website.
Trump, wearing his trademark Make America Great Again cap with ’45’, stands up after setting the golf ball and takes a walk around.
‘The 45th and 47th,’ Trump says, correcting the person.
The ex-president’s playing partners can be heard cheering to his remark and one of them says, ‘Yes, I love that!’
The 45th president made his bold remark at Trump National, though the person speaking in the video did not specify which one of the many that bear the name.
Several polls conducted this month have shown Trump with a substantial lead over other potential Republican candidates.
A Reuters/Ipsos poll released in late December had Trump leading Florida Governor Ron DeSantis by a whopping 43 percentage points.
Specifically, more than half of Republicans, 54%, said they would back Trump as the Republican nominee for president, versus just 11% supporting DeSantis.
