*sigh* We were hoping we’d be rid of Mr Trump at this point, and in a sense we are, but not quite.
Utah Republican Senator Mitt Romney says Mr Trump would gain the Republican presidential nomination in 2024 if he wants it… and unfortunately I think he’s correct.
Not because Mr Trump is great and wonderful, he’s not. And not because Mr Trump is some great leader, though he is a pied piper for the gullible, there is that. No, none of that.
Mr Trump would win the nomination for one reason and one reason only… the Republican Party is weak. Everyone makes a big deal about him beating Hillary Clinton in 2016, but they forget he also ran the Republican gauntlet in the primaries. He beat something like sixteen candidates to win the nomination. In other words, sixteen tries and not one could beat a boorish boob of a loser like Donald Trump. That says a lot, and since then no one has stepped up as a serious contender. Oh, Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Josh Hawley (R-MO) fancy themselves the heir apparent, but let’s get real.
So, barring a criminal conviction for something… a distinct possibility… Kamala Harris will be facing Donald Trump in 2024.
