On the campaign trail in Iowa, Clinton said his focus is on rebuilding America, but he also said he’s open to a third term in office.
“I’m not ruling anything out,” he told ABC News’ “Good Morning America.”
“I’m just not going to say at this point, but I’m very proud to be an American.
But I’m not going as a 2020 candidate, because I’m focusing on the things that I know will help us get America back on track.”
Clinton said his “dream job” is to lead a government that he says is working for the American people and that he can help get the country back on its feet.
“We’re a nation that works,” he said.
“We’ve got a big country, and I think that if we can get it back on the right track, it’ll be a much stronger country.”
Clinton, who said in April that he could not “get a grip” on the 2016 election, said the country is better off when Americans are focused on “doing the right things” and “working for each other.”
“If we all work together, we’re going to make this country a lot better,” he added.
Clinton, 84, spoke about his plans to be re-elected in 2020 as part of a larger discussion about his presidency.
He is currently scheduled to speak at the Democratic National Convention on Thursday, July 25.ABC News’ John Santucci contributed to this report.
