Trump eyes comeback, declares self ’45th and 47th’ US president

The immediate former president of the United States (US), Donald Trump has declared himself as the 45th and 47th president of the nation.

Referring to himself as the 47th while present president, Joe Biden, is 46th, signifies his strong determination to return to power.

As he prepared to tee off at one of his Florida golf courses, a fellow player introduced Donald Trump as the “45th president of the United States.”

“45th and 47th,” Trump responded matter-of-factly, before hitting his drive.

The quip — a moment of levity on the links captured on shaky cellphone video — was a reminder that the former president often has another presidential run on his mind. But the declaration belied the growing challenges he’s confronting as a series of complex legal investigations ensnare Trump, his family and many associates.

The probes, which are unfolding in multiple jurisdictions and consider everything from potential fraud and election interference to the role he played in the Jan. 6 insurrection, represent the most serious legal threat Trump has faced in decades of an often litigious public life.
