Despite previously underlining that the Republican National Committee would be neutral in the 2024 presidential race, RNC chairwoman Ronna McDaniel pointed that former president Donald Trump is still most popular Republican and still leads the GOP, Ney York Post writes.
She pointed in her Sunday interview in “The Cats Roundtable” that Trump is the main crowd magnet, which is evident in the amount of people that show up to his rallies and his $102 million fundraising haul he can hand out to Republican contenders in the 2022 midterm elections aiding them in regaining control of Congress.
Federal Election Commission disclosures released earlier this month show that more than $82 million were brought in the first half of 2021by the Trump-aligned political groups, but Trump still hasn’t confirmed if he will run for president in 2024.
McDaniel claims the 2022 elections will not be about Republicans going against Democrats but against communism, noting at the same time that Democrats are denigrating the United States and want to take away Americans’ freedom of speech, freedom of religion and police from the streets.
Meanwhile, onetime Trump press secretary Sean Spicer said in an interview for The Examiner that his former boss would run for the presidency again in 2024, without stating if that’s his personal opinion or is based on talks with Trump or his inner circle.
Spicer believes that Trump’s wish to run for president again had been bolstered over the last several months by Biden’s poor handling of serious issues such as immigration.
Trump’s former chief of staff, Mark Meadows, also ignited talks on former president’s future aspirations in a recent interview informing on a meeting he held with Trump and some GOP members discussing plans to move forward in a real way, alluding he’s referring to the possibility of Trump running again in 2024.
