Democrats are shaking in their boots. They have painted all conservatives as terrorists. They have run us off social media. They have shut down social media that accepts us. They have twice impeached President Trump on made-up charges. They’re terrified. And so are their allies in the Republican Party — allies like Mitt Romney, who has attacked Trump repeatedly. But now, Romney has made a startling admission.
Recently, President Trump has hinted both at a 2024 run and his own political party. This is a huge deal, as half of Trump voters say they would follow him to another party and abandon the GOP altogether. In other words, despite the attacks both from in and outside the house, President Trump still has massive support in the GOP. And Romney? He says that he wouldn’t vote for him — but admits that President Trump is still in charge.
“He has by far the largest voice and a big impact in my party,” the Never-Trumper says. “I don’t know if he’s planning to run in 2024 or not, but if he does, I’m pretty sure he would win the nomination.”
Many, including President Trump’s son, wonder when Romney will just leave the party he so clearly hates:
President Trump is making a speech at CPAC, where he is expected to make a “show of force” to remind everyone that he’s still in charge. It’s also possible that he may announce a 2024 run, but many close to the President are unsure if he feels like a rematch with Joe Biden and the Democrats’ trickery.
It’s unclear what the future holds, but one thing is certain — the Republican Party needs Donald Trump, not the other way around. He could singlehandedly save the GOP or bring about its destruction by forming a rival political party that would steal away support from Republicans. People like Romney and his Never-Trump allies need to quit playing with fire, because they are close to getting burned.
