DONALD TRUMP has confirmed his intention for President again in 2024.
Trump made the admission at a Christmas party at the White House.
The event was notable for the fact few, if any, of the guests shown on footage appeared to be wearing masks.
Dozens of people could be seen stood close together in the Cross Hall of the White House state floor.
Republican committee member Pam Pollard filmed the video, which was streamed live on Facebook.
“It’s been an amazing four years,” Trump told those in attendance.
“‘We’re trying to do another four years. Otherwise, I’ll see you in four years.”
Several members of the Republican National Committee were present for the event, which was held in violation of the US government’s own health guidance.
In the clip, Trump can be heard continuing to allege the election was rigged against him despite attorney general William Barr dismissed those claims this week.
Barr said that the Justice Department had not uncovered evidence of widespread voter fraud, and nothing that would result in a change to the outcome of last month’s presidential election.
“It’s certainly an unusual year. We won an election. But they don’t like that,” Trump said.
“I call it a rigged election, and I always will.”
Donald Trump says he'll be back in 2024, if his legal fight for re-election fails.

The event was hosted at the White House despite dire warnings about the likely spread of coronavirus across the US in the coming months.
Dozens of presidential aides, staff workers and allies were previously infected during a superspreader event organised by Trump.
The President was also hospitalised with the virus back in October while both Melania and Barron Trump both tested positive.
Stephanie Grisham, the first lady’s spokeswoman and chief of staff, previously confirmed they would be hosting Christmas events at the White House in “the safest environment possble.
“Masks will be required and available, social distancing encouraged while on the White House grounds, and hand sanitizer stations throughout the State Floor.”
Despite outling plans for the events, she was keen to stress that attendance remains “a very personal choice”.
