New coverage presented by Al-Youm Al-Sabea TV, about a warning from Republican leaders in the United States not to underestimate the chances of former President Donald Trump in the 2024 White House race, and they said that he is still the favorite despite indications within the party that he is ready to overtake him..
According to The Hill newspaper, strategic planners and officials began hammering the final nail into the coffin of Trump’s political career after the recent midterm elections, with the increasing legal problems facing the former president and the ongoing repercussions of the events of the storming of Congress, which raised questions about whether he had been harmed indefinitely. He can be the party’s candidate in the elections.
But some Republicans say it is still too early to disqualify Trump, even as his potential rivals, notably Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, increasingly attract public attention..
“When you’re in Florida at these grassroots meetings, you hear DeSantis’ name popping up,” said Ford O’Connell, the Republican strategist. “But outside of Florida, Trump is still important.”.
He added that he believed that many people were quick to write off Trump, from the media to donors and commentators, so it must be remembered that this is a former president who deals well with what needs to be accomplished in Washington, and has very strong popularity with the grassroots..
Trump had breathed a little sigh of relief from allegations of mishandling of government documents, after it was revealed that secret documents had been found at President Joe Biden’s home and former office in Washington. Both cases, the Trump documents and the Biden documents, are subject to two investigations, each of which is supervised by a special prosecutor, and observers were quick to confirm that the two cases are different, but Republicans say that the Biden documents help Trump..--
A former Trump campaign aide said the disclosure takes a lot of pressure off Trump because Republican voters are beginning to remember that what Democrats accuse Trump of doing, they themselves do. This is too much for Republican voters.-
While other Republicans said, Trump has unparalleled political resilience. The former president has faced near-constant scrutiny since launching his first presidential bid in 2015, so excluding him at the present time seems premature, they said..
Kellyani Conway, Trump’s former advisor, wrote in an article last week in the New York Times that ignoring Trump’s candidacy in the 2024 race or writing his political obituary is foolish, noting that he must endure persecution and avoid prosecution in a way that no other public figure does. She added that this matter may change, of course, although “the cat has nine lives,” as she described it.
The Hill says that this does not mean that Trump certainly does not face enormous challenges in his efforts to regain the White House after losing 2020 to President Biden. Conway herself stated that it would also be foolish to assume that Trump’s path to the presidency again would be smooth and safe.
The losses suffered by Trump-backed candidates in the midterm elections last year prompted many Republicans to question his political influence, and the former president faces a large number of legal cases that range from an investigation that a special prosecutor sees in his dealings with confidential documents that were found in the residence his residence, and even his alleged efforts to overturn the result of the 2020 election in the state of Georgia.
Some Republicans also criticized Trump’s launch of the 2024 race, and one of the veteran planners from the Republican Party said that the nomination for the presidency requires going to Iowa and organizing a political event, and going to New Hampshire, but it does not seem that Trump has planned for that, and has not done this yet..
