Former President Donald Trump revealed recently that he may not run for another term in 2024 due to health reasons.

During an interview with Real Clear Politics, the former president was asked what could prevent him from running in 2024.

"Well, one reason could be your health. You get a call from your doctor and that's the end of that," Trump explained. "That stuff happens; you hope it doesn't. I just had a medical, just had great result. You never know, there are many things can happen; politics is a crazy world. It is a big commitment of you, your children, your wife and your family."

But Trump predicted that "people will be very happy with my decision."

He also suggested that his new slogan will be "Make America Great Again, Again."

Omarosa Manigault Newman, a former White House adviser, said over the weekend that Trump needs to "come clean" about his health.

"I think going into 2024, I'm really more concerned about the fact that Donald Trump hasn't come forward and talked about his health," she told MSNBC on Sunday. "I don't know if he will even be healthy enough to run in 2024. I think he needs to come clean to the American people about where he is on that before deciding to get into a very stressful and strenuous race for the White House."
