Utah Senator Mitt Romney may not be anyone’s favorite Republican but at least he’s a realist. Despite having voted twice to impeach former President Donald Trump, Romney admits that if the former president decides to run for the White House again there is likely nobody within the party that can stop Trump from being handed the Republican nomination.
The Daily Wire reports:
“It’s hard to imagine anything that would derail his support,” Romney told Axios. “So if he wants to become the nominee in ’24, I think he’s very likely to achieve that.”
Romney also made a frank admission. “I don’t delude myself into thinking I have a big swath of the Republican Party,” he said. And he admitted that Trump’s power remains strong.
“He’s the leader of the party, that’s clear … If he decides to run, he will be the nominee,” Romney added.
Recently, Romney admitted that his unpopularity within the GOP prompts him to go “incognito” whenever he travels to Florida.
“Republican Sen. Mitt Romney reportedly likes to go incognito while in Palm Beach, Florida,” Business Insider wrote. “The Utah conservative has been wearing hats while dining out in the wealthy oceanside enclave, where he has a vacation home, in an effort to disguise himself, a family friend told the authors of the new book ‘This Will Not Pass: Trump, Biden, and the Battle for America’s Future.’”
Trump has repeatedly hinted at plans to run for president in 2024 but has stopped short of making any official announcements.
