Republicans No Longer Waiting For Trump

This has caused somewhat of a stir.

As he attends events and rallies across the country, former President Donald Trump continues to tease crowds that he may run for President in 2024.

Asked by Fox News if he believed Trump’s not confirming he will run for President in 2024 is stalling the Republican field, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said he didn’t believe that was the case.

Pompeo — an ally of Trump — stated, “President Trump was perfect, perfect for 2016. We needed that kind of disruption.”

Pompeo continued, “If I come to conclude that I’m the right person to carry that mantle forward, I will go and try and make that case to the American people starting in the great state of Iowa.”

Pompeo may not be the only Republican seriously considering running to be the GOP’s presidential candidate. Former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley, another keynote speaker at the three-day Faith and Freedom Coalition’s Road to Majority Conference in Nashville, has also been named as a potential 2024 Presidential candidate.

The annual gathering of Christian conservatives is meant to boost Republicans ahead of this year’s midterm elections.

Haley was also asked by Fox News about 2024 but insisted her focus remained on assisting Republicans to win congressional and gubernatorial races ahead of the midterms, saying she would only determine what her political future holds after the midterm elections.

According to Fox News, she said, “I don’t think I have to make that decision until the first of next year,” adding, “I’ve never lost a race. I’m not going to start now. If there’s a place for me, I will put 1000 percent and we’ll finish it.”
