Longtime Trump rival Senator Mitt Romney can’t ignore the fact that Trump is still the face of the Republican Party and the people are standing by his side. Despite his own feelings towards the former president Romney couldn’t help but admit to New York Times reporter, Andrew Ross Sorkin that he believes Trump would win the Republican nomination in 2024 by a “landslide.”
The Daily Wire reports:
“Will President Trump continue to play a role in my party? I’m sure he will,” Romney said. “He has by far the largest voice and a big impact in my party. I don’t know about his family members, whether they intend to do that, but I expect he will continue playing a role.”
“I don’t know if he’ll run in 2024 or not, but if he does, I’m pretty sure he will win the nomination,” Romney continued.
Acknowledging that “a lot can happen between now and 2024,” Romney said “the polls show that, among the names being floated as potential contenders in 2024, if you put President Trump in there among Republicans he wins in a landslide.”
Romney nevertheless maintained that he would never vote for Trump, even if he does run again. “I would not be voting for President Trump again. I haven’t voted for him in the past. I would be getting behind somebody in the tiny wing of the Republican Party that I represent.”
Trump is scheduled to speak at this weekend’s Conservative Political Action Conference in Florida where many are speculating if the former president will outline his future political plans.
