Former President Trump says he's returning to Iowa for a rally, adding to speculation about a 2024 presidential run.

Trump announced his plans Monday on the multi-platform Todd Starnes show to return to the first-in-the-nation presidential balloting state.

"We're doing some more," said Trump, who was elected to the White House in 2015 but lost his 2020 reelection bid. "We’re going to Iowa. We’re going to Georgia. We’re going to some others."

A source familiar with Trump's plans told the Des Moines Register initial conversations had begun about holding an Iowa rally.

Earlier this month, Trump's leadership PAC hired two Iowa political consultants – Eric Branstad and Alex Latcham – as senior advisers, another possible indication of his interest in Iowa, according to the Des Moines Register.

Trump has said election laws prevent him from saying whether he'll seek reelection.
