Report: No GOP 2024 White House Contender willing to Announce Because They’re Scared of Trump

Back in 2015, Republicans had been waiting for 8 years to get a shot at the White House. And when the primary season started, there were more than 20 hopefuls for the nomination. One of those hopefuls was Donald Trump.

The competitors did their best to outline just how ridiculous his candidacy was. But despite his background, competence and other factors, Trump was able to dispatch each of the more experienced candidates.

Republicans are again hoping to get back in the White House in 2024. And Donald Trump is one of him. And as long as he’s in the race, a new report says, everyone else is too scared to announce.

The CNN story quotes an aide to a potential contender as saying, “Unless there’s a dramatic shift in the base, the nomination is Donald Trump’s and it would be a suicide mission to run against him. [But] we aren’t ever going to admit that. It turns off voters we might need down the road.”

An adviser to Greg Abbott, who may be a 2024 candidate, told Gabby Orr, “Of the 30 or so people who are out there thinking about this or dreaming about it, it’s an honest assessment to say that if you like the Trump brand of policies, it will be very difficult to break through with voters if he is also competing in the race.”

In most ways Trump will define the Republican party for the next 10 years. And while he may help in some ways, he is also likely to do plenty of damage.
