Candace Owens has hinted towards her future plans in a tweet on Saturday, February 6, after recently accusing AOC of "faking her own attempted murder". On Twitter, the author wrote, “I love America. Thinking about running for President." However, she did not mention if her plans are for 2024 or later years, since in the US the presidential election takes place every four years. Owens’s statement soon garnered a lot of attention on the internet as over 19,000 people retweeted it while thousands commented on it.



 

Reacting to her tweet, one person said, “The day the Republican Party nominate a Black Conservative for President will be the end of the Republican Party. Y’all cool, but NOT that cool.” Another one wrote, “Maybe try serving in another political office first and see if you like it before going for President. Trump was able to pull it off due to years of delegation and brand building.” A third user said, “Don't yet. Run for Governor or Senator first. A lot of trump's failures were due to his being a rookie politician.” A fourth user added, “OMG what a delusional statement. Didn’t you learn anything in the last 5-6 years? I’m laughing to the point of tears!”

However, this is not the first time Owens has disclosed her political aspirations. In November 2020, she replied to a tweet from boxer Devon Alexander. When Alexander asked, “What's going to happen to this one after Trump is out of office,” the 31-year-old replied: “2024 is a long way off... Maybe I’ll run as his successor.” That time also she attracted a lot of attention with mostly people poking fun at her. “ALMOST EVERY BLACK PERSON VOTED FOR BIDEN. Except you. And a couple of other wingnuts or grifters. You are finished,” a comment from that time read. Another tweet stated, “Trump has turned the republican party into a failure. You will make it even worse.” “She will find another white nationalist to support. She's just like Trump. She will do anything for attention,” a third comment read.



 



 



 



 

Owens’ latest comment comes a few days after she alleged that AOC had faked her attempted murder. She posted on Twitter, “On a day in which #AlexandriaOcasioSmollett is trending, please never forget the time that @AOC staged a photo shoot dressed in all white at a parking lot to spread lies about immigrant children in cages. Faking her own attempted murder was the next logical step.” Her accusation came after the Democrat shared that she is "a survivor of sexual assault” and also talked about how she had a near-death experience on the day of the Capitol building riots.

But Owens’ jibe at her did not go down well with the people on Twitter as they soon started slamming her. One such user tweeted, “Hey Candace, remember when you sued our school for racial discrimination back in the day but you now claim that racism isn’t real and you’ve never experienced it? Everything you say is a lie.” “You’ll never be as beautiful, as intelligent, as relevant, as powerful or as respected as AOC. Your own party laughs at you behind your back and the Black community will never accept you. Your opinions literally mean nothing to anyone. You just make people angry for a living,” another user commented.
