Washington, Sep 5 (Prensa Latina) Even though Donald Trump will surely announce his candidacy for the presidency of the United States in 2024, probabilities he will regain the White House are too low, The Hill newspaper reported on Monday.

According to The Hill, Trump will be able to claim his return to the White House following his single term, as he would not be the first former president to try; “however, if history is any guide, chances of him serving two non-consecutive terms are too low,” according to the text.

It recalled that, in fact, the record of successes of former presidents who succeeded after being out of office is quite limited to a single example in more than 200 years.

The closest parallel to what Trump is trying to replicate comes from Democrat Grover Cleveland, the 22nd and 24th president of the United States, it noted.

Mr. Cleveland was first elected in 1884, winning with 219 votes against Republican opponent James G. Blaine’s 182 electoral votes, The Hill recalled.

Just as Cleveland’s 1884 electoral victory hinged on a few votes in just one state, in 2016, Trump’s margin over Hillary Clinton was due to small but significant victories in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania.
