Former White House counselor Kellyanne Conway says that Donald Trump should seriously consider supporting Mike Pence for the Republican Party’s 2024 nomination, especially if he doesn’t run himself.
In an appearance on The Wall Street Journal’s “Free Expression” podcast, the former campaign manager admitted that Trump is the overwhelming favorite to be the Party’s nominee in the next election.
The Hill reports:
“The Trump/Pence accomplishments are remarkable, and we can go through them. People don’t seem to want to, but if he runs for president, he’ll be talking about that. If Mike Pence runs for president instead of Donald Trump, if Donald Trump says no, he’ll be talking about the Trump-Pence accomplishments,” Conway added.
“He’s beating all other Republican candidates among Republican primary voters,” she added.
Conway said that the former president “should” support his vice president when asked if Trump would support Pence if he chooses not to run.
She added that if Trump decides not to run, he should think “very deeply about supporting his vice president, because they were a magical, magnificent, marvelous team.”
