Trump’s speech at the RJC event serves as a reminder that he is still a significant player in the Republican Party. Trump is the most well-liked candidate among Republican voters despite his divisive remarks on Hezbollah and his loss in the 2020 presidential contest.
In the event that Trump chooses to seek the presidency once more in 2024, he will undoubtedly lead the Republican field for the nomination. Whether he will really run, though, is still up in the air. Though he has stated that he is unsure if he wants to go through the process of running for president again, Trump has made several allusions to a 2024 campaign.
Should Trump decide not to become president in 2024, there will be a void in the Republican field. A number of prospective contenders, including as Pence, Scott, Haley, and former Vice President Mike Pence, have already declared their interest in running. It’s still too early to predict who will lead the non-Trump field, though.
