Donald Trump is looking at another Presidential campaign in 2024.
But Trump got hit with this unexpected curveball.
And Donald Trump just got one piece of advice that you won’t believe.
Former White House Senior Counselor Kellyanne Conway appeared on the Wall Street Journal’s Free Expression podcast and offered a surprising suggestion to Donald Trump.
Conway – who also managed Trump’s successful 2016 campaign – suggested that if he chooses not to run for re-election, that he should endorse former Vice President Mike Pence for President.
“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 explained.
In addition to Conway stating that endorsing Pence would cement the Trump administration’s policy achievements, she also falsely claimed that Pence was the strongest non-Trump 2024 Presidential candidate.
“He’s beating all other Republican candidates among Republican Primary voters,” Conway continued.
This is not true at all.
Every poll shows that Florida Governor Ron DeSantis comes in second to Donald Trump in a hypothetical 2024 GOP Presidential Primary.
Those same polls show DeSantis leading the field if Donald Trump does not run for President.
The latest example comes from a recent Harvard-Harris CAPS survey.
The Hill reports:
In a hypothetical 2024 GOP presidential primary, DeSantis takes 36 percent support among those surveyed. His closest rival is former Vice President Mike Pence, who notches only 17 percent of the potential vote.
No other prospective candidate scores in the double digits. Only 8 percent of respondents say they would support former Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), while former Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley comes in at 8 percent support.
Conway added that if Trump does not run, he should think “very deeply about supporting his Vice President because they were a magical, magnificent, marvelous team.”
There is almost no chance of Trump supporting Pence.
Trump believes Pence betrayed him on January 6 in not rejecting the certified Electoral College results from contested states.
However, the 12th Amendment gave Pence no other option.
Mike Pence is running for President in 2024 no matter what Donald Trump does.
And there is no chance Trump would endorse his former Vice President.
