President Trump on Monday discussed the possible successors who might run as the Republican candidate in 2024.
“I’ll make my choice about seeking reelection sometime later, but there is a pretty deep selection,” Trump said to Fox News host Lisa Boothe.
Candidates that President Trump mentioned as top ranked were Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida, Senator Josh Hawley of Missouri, Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, Senator Kristi Noem of South Dakota, Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky, and Sarah Sanders from Arkansas.
“We have a lot of good, young people,” Trump said. “Ron DeSantis is doing a great job down in Florida. I think Hawley has shown real bravery going after corrupt tech companies.”
“And you know someone that’s been great is Ted Cruz … And Rand Paul has been terrific. A lot of folks, I mean, really a lot of folks have been terrific. The GOP is stacked,” he added.
President Trump made it clear that the candidates in this “stacked” party will only have a chance at running for the presidency in 2024 if he chooses to not enter the race.
“There’s a deep selection,” he told Boothe. “I’ll make that choice later on, about seeking reelection, but there’s a deep selection. If you see the polls, they love what I’ve done.”
If President Trump decides to not go for a 2024 campaign, the GOP will still be in good shape because of the revolution that has overtaken the Republicans and the country due to President Trump.
