In a piece for Vanity Fair, Bob Iger confirmed that he had done work on a 2020 Presidential run:

“It wasn’t just something I was talking about with reporters and friends and colleagues. I was actually doing some work on it. But the primary reason I dropped it was because of this Fox deal.”

And while he has agreed to remain with Disney through 2021, he has not ruled out a 2024 election:

“Right now I’m not doing it in 2020. I am running the company through 2021. I have made no decision about what I’ll do afterward. I have thought very little about it.”

This non-answer mirrors how he originally addressed the 2020 questions, when in fact, he admits to have done more than just focus on running Disney.
