President Donald Trump has started mulling a presidential run in 2024, Axios reported on Monday.

The political magazine outlet said Mr. Trump’s advisers familiar with the matter said the president has started admitting privately that there was no basis for him to continue fighting the victory of Joe Biden.

Mr. Biden has already started his transition programmes following his declaration as president on Saturday. Mr. Trump rejected his Democratic Party rival’s victory, saying the election was fraught with corruption. 

He has filed numerous court processes to contest election results across multiple states, although his efforts have been largely dismissed as having little chance of reversing Mr. Biden’s margin of victory.
