Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo suggested that he would run for president in 2024 if former President Donald Trump decides against running for a second time.

Pompeo said he would “consider getting in that race” when talking to host Sean Hannity on Fox News Wednesday night.

“Sean, I’m always up for a good fight,” Pompeo said. “I care deeply about America. You and I have been part of the conservative movement for an awfully long time now. I aim to keep at it.”

Pompeo’s comments followed his appearance at the Conservative Political Action Conference last weekend. During his address at the conference, Pompeo called himself Trump’s top diplomat and promoted the previous administration’s “America First” foreign policy.

The former president himself also appeared at the conference Sunday and did not deny the possibility of a 2024 run. “I may even decide to beat them for a third time,” Trump said when referencing the Democrats and his false claims behind the 2020 election.

Some politicians who then supported Trump have now grown more critical of him since the Capitol attack, one of them being Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who called Trump “morally and practically responsible” for the attack.
