President Donald Trump has already told some of his senior advisers that he plans to run in the 2024 presidential election, according to a report from Axios.

The reports come as the president refuses to concede and remains engaged in an unprecedented effort to cast doubt on the November 3 results. On Saturday, multiple news outlets, including Fox News, declared Democratic candidate Joe Biden as the winner of the election and 46th president of the United States.

But Trump spent the weekend either claiming he won the election or making unverified accusations of fraud.

Despite his insistence that he hasn't lost, the president's advisers have reportedly spent days trying to explain to him that he definitely did lose the election, according to The Wall Street Journal. Even his wife and son-in-law have tried to float the idea of conceding, which he has shot down. Yet, the news on Monday that Trump was looking ahead to 2024 was a tacit sign that he is coming to terms with the fact that he has lost.

There were a variety of responses to the news that Trump was looking to run again in 2024. Some said he would only float the idea of running again to continue fundraising while others said he wanted to run again just to complicate potential criminal charges he may face once he leaves office. 

Others noted that another run by Trump would complicate things for other Republicans hoping to use his base for their own potential presidential runs.

Some said it was simply because Trump loves the attention.

While many are throwing cold water on the idea, it would not be the first time in U.S. history that a president ran for two non-consecutive terms. Grover Cleveland is the only president to serve two non-consecutive terms, becoming the 22nd and 24th president. 

Other Republican officials, including Senator Lindsay Graham, have urged Trump to run again.
