Donald Trump has dropped one of his strongest hints yet that he will run for the US Presidency in 2024.

Speaking to a crowd in Sioux City, Iowa, he said he will "very, very, very probably" do it again in the next presidential election.

Trump is embarking of a tour of rallies as he campaigns for Republican candidates ahead of next week's midterm elections.

US President Joe Biden is also travelling the country in an effort to promote the Democrat vote.

While Biden and Trump are not on the ballot for next week's voting, the result will significantly dictate the political landscape for the next two years in the US.

On Thursday night, Trump reiterated his unfounded claim that he was robbed of victory in the 2020 election due to widespread fraud.

"Get ready," he told the crowd. "I won twice, and did much better the second time than I did the first, getting millions more votes in 2020 than I got in 2016.

"And likewise, getting more votes than any sitting president in the history of our country by far.

"And now in order to make our country successful, and safe and glorious. I will very, very, very probably do it again.

"Very soon."

Despite the 76-year-old attracting the most votes ever for a sitting president with 72 million, he was defeated by Joe Biden, who earned 81 million.

Biden, who campaigned yesterday in New Mexico and California, has reportedly held meetings with advisers about his potential 2024 re-election campaign, which could set up a rematch with Donald Trump.

The latest hint from the ex-president follows a series of indications that the 76-year-old will push for the White House.

In October he told a rally in Texas: "I will probably have to do it again," while in September he told a rally in Pennsylvania: "I may just have to do it again".

Trump will not have a clear run for the Republican nomination, with a host of candidates vying to get their name on the ballot.

Potential candidates include Trump's former Vice-President Mike Pence and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
