It appears to be only a matter of time before Donald Trump announces he is running for reelection.
But Trump is not going to be the only Republican in the 2024 field.
And Megyn Kelly left viewers floored with this shocking prediction about Donald Trump.
Outside of former President Donald Trump, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is the most talked about contender for the Republican Presidential nomination in 2024.
DeSantis’ successful fights against COVID mandates and woke corporations turned the Florida Governor into a rockstar with conservatives.
Polls continuously show Governor DeSantis is running second to Trump in early 2024 polling, and if Trump were to decide not to run, DeSantis would be the clear frontrunner.
But in an interview with conservative commentator Dave Rubin, former Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly said the Republican nomination is Donald Trump’s as long as he wants it.
Kelly claimed the only way Governor DeSantis could be the nominee is if Trump passes on 2024, or simply can’t run because he died.
“I think Trump sucks up all the energy in the room no matter what,” Kelly explained. “And even someone as skilled as a politician and smart policywise as DeSantis, can’t overcome that. He can’t. The only way DeSantis is going to become the Republican nominee is if Trump chooses not to run and endorses him, or dies.”
Kelly explained that if Trump decided to run in 2024, she sees no scenario in which the America First base abandoned Trump for another candidate.
“I just don’t see a world in which Trump says, ‘I want it,’” Kelly continued. “Let’s say he says he wants it and DeSantis beats him fair and square in the Primary. You really think the hardcore MAGA is going to abandon Trump for DeSantis? They’re not.”
Kelly said she regularly talked to Trump voters on her show who like DeSantis and his record of accomplishment, but believe it is not yet his time.
“I talk to Trump folks all the time on my show,” Kelly concluded. “They like DeSantis but they don’t think it’s his turn. They think Trump was screwed out of his last election, out of his first term by all the craziness in Russiagate and so on and they think he is entitled, he deserves another shot of it. Unless Trump gracefully and graciously says get behind DeSantis, I wouldn’t put any chips on DeSantis at all.”
