Senator Mitt Romney has a prediction: if Trump runs in 2024, he will win the Republican nomination.
Speaking at “Dealbook DC Project Policy” Event Tuesday, the Trump critic said, “I don’t know if he’ll run in 2024 or not, but if he does, I’m pretty sure he’ll get the nomination.”
The comments come just days ahead of former President Trump’s appearance at Conservative Political Action Committee this weekend in Orlando, Florida. It will be Trump’s first speaking event since leaving office and many predict that he will declare himself the presumptive nominee.
A recent poll from Suffolk University and USA Today suggests nearly half of the Republican Party would follow Trump into new party, should he choose to create and lead one.
Romney has been a constant critic of President Trump’s, and has previously referred to him as the 900 pound gorilla.
