Reporter Maggie Haberman shared her thoughts on the possibility of former President Donald Trump running for reelection in 2024.

Haberman has covered Trump for at least 11 years, accumulating in a new book she’s releasing soon on the former president called “Confidence Man.” CBS News Anchor John Dickerson asked Haberman in an interview that aired Sunday for her view on whether Trump will run again. Haberman warned that she did not know the answer for certain, she believed the former president had put himself in a position where he has no choice but to run.

“I think he’s backed himself into a corner where he has to run,” Haberman said. “I think that he needs the protections that running for president [he thinks] would afford him in combating investigations that he calls a ‘witch hunt.’”

Trump has reportedly referred to Haberman his “psychiatrist,” despite his previous public outbursts decrying her reporting. Most recently, Haberman claimed Trump threatened to obtain her phone records to reveal her sources. Despite the disagreements with Haberman and other reporters, the former president hasn’t turned down an opportunity to sit down with prominent journalists writing books on him.

“[Politics are] the way that he fundraises and makes money. So much of his identity now is about being a politician,” Haberman said. “So, I expect that he will run. That doesn’t mean that even if he declares a candidacy, that he will stay in the whole time.”

“It’s obvious to me he saw the presidency the ultimate vehicle to fame.”

Trump held a rally in Michigan Saturday night, where he made headlines for thanking Ginni Thomas, the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, who told the House Jan. 6 select committee in testimony this week that she still believed the 2020 election was stolen through widespread voter fraud.
