Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo couldn't wait a full day before looking forward on social media to the 2024 election.

Less than 23 hours after President Joe Biden was sworn into office, Pompeo took to Twitter to provide a countdown to the next presidential election.

"1,384 days," Pompeo posted at 10:17 a.m. Thursday.

The tweet prompted speculation that the former congressman and ex-director of the CIA might have his eyes on the Republican nomination.

The wife of retired Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, who testified against former President Donald Trump during his first impeachment trial, responded to Pompeo's countdown tweet.

"Until you're still not president?" Rachel Vindman wrote, per the Washington Examiner.

Other people also mocked Pompeo's post.

"You really do think you're going to be president next, don't you?" tweeted Molly Jong-Fast, editor-at-large at the Daily Beast.

CNN anchor Jake Tapper also tweeted his reaction.

"People took different lessons from the Trump presidency," Tapper wrote.

Until today, Pompeo's name had been mentioned prominently as a potential contender for the Republican nomination. Former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley, Senators Josh Hawley, R-Mo., and Ted Cruz, R-Texas, are among the people who've been mentioned as possible contenders.

There's also Trump; some people insist that he will seek to run again in ’24.

"Remember us," Trump said before leaving Washington, D.C., on Wednesday. "We will be back in some form.”
