Ask the opinions of his advisors

A person familiar with the matter revealed that Trump was soliciting the opinions of advisers but had not yet decided whether to formally announce his candidacy, according to the Washington Post.

In this context, Jason Miller, an adviser and spokesman for Trump, said, “It’s all about Herschel… I would advise him to postpone his announcement until after the runoff.” “I am not alone when I say that it is better now that the former president’s moves should be focused on pushing for the election of Herschel Walker,” he added.
