I am 100% certain we will have to live through another Trump candidacy, a primary season where he will dominate the GOP field and next summer a GOP nominating convention where he will be inaugurated again as the GOP nominee for President.
I’ve said it before, the only way this doesn’t happen is if he dies. Not wishing death on anyone, just that is the only way I see him not being the GOP nominee in 2024.
So far, @JaneDoe42 , it’s mostly how America had the world’s respect when he was President. Russia, North Korea, and China respected him because he was so tough. Then, he turned to how nothing bad that has happened over the last two years was the result of anything he did while in office. Inflation, high gas prices, lack of respect from the global community–they’re all Biden’s fault, and we all know that Biden falls asleep at international conferences, and forgets the name of the country he is in when travelling.
You didn’t miss much. Imagine what you might think he would say, and he said it.
Trump has a firm hold on a large % of the GOP base. DeSantis is unlikely to run in 2024 in my opinion.
The GOP can push back all they want and many of them have in the last few days. We’ve seen it before and when the base gets riled they all end up backing down. I see no reason to think things have changed all that much. The GOP won’t learn any lessons about supporting this boob until they get totally crushed. 2022 midterms were bad for them but not bad enough.
I don’t think DeSanctimonious runs in 2024 either. There’s no reason for a currently-popular 44-year-old governor to get into the mud with the orange hog. He can let Trumpy-Wumpy take one last dumpy on the GOP, and clean up the mess in '28.
