'Scares me at this point': 'The Simpsons' predicted Trump’s 2024 presidential run in 2015
A picture from a 2015 episode of 'The Simpsons' went viral after Trump announced his 2024 campaign
MIAMI, FLORIDA: Fans are spooked as 'The Simpsons' appear to have made another correct prediction by forecasting president Donald Trump’s 2024 presidential run. A picture from a 2015 episode of 'The Simpsons' went viral soon after Trump announced his campaign for the upcoming 2024 presidential election. Trump's bid for president in 2024 was reportedly forecast by Homer Simpson, more than seven years before the actual announcement. Al Jean, the producer of 'The Simpsons', revealed the information on his Twitter.
‘The Simpsons' producer posted a clip from an episode from 2015 on Twitter, in which Homer Simpson holds a sign that reads ‘Trump 2024’ as the candidate for president.
“As you know, we’ve inherited quite a budget cut from President Trump,” says President Simpson in the snippet Jean shared on Twitter. Many users came out and reacted to ‘The Simpsons’ predictions. One person wrote, “How does the Simpsons keep predicting this shit? It honestly kinda scares me at this point.” “Does it show if he wins or not tho? i don’t want him to win 😭”, another added. Someone wondered, “So does Trump win in 2024 ha”. “Well, I didn’t need any social power to know that was coming,” yet another user remarked.
It's not the first time 'The Simpsons' is said to have predicted a future event correctly. The death of British monarch Queen Elizabeth II and the resignation of British Prime Minister Liz Truss were both forecast by the show, according to New York Post. The program supposedly foresaw the 2020 Capitol riot in 2019 as well as Ted Cruz's tragic trip to Cancun while Texans suffered in freezing cold.
On November 15, the former president declared his run for president in 2024 saying, “In order to make America great and glorious again I am tonight announcing my candidacy for President of the United States."

Trump announced his candidacy just before submitting the necessary paperwork to the Federal Election Committee at his Florida beachfront resort, Mar-a-Lago. He made the announcement following the Republican Party's underwhelming performance in the 2022 midterm elections, which were held to determine which party would govern the US Congress for the next two years. While announcing his presidential candidacy, Trump added, "I will ensure Joe Biden does not receive four more years. Our country cannot take that. It can only take so much... We will do it again but with even more votes this time.”
