I’m reasonably confident that Donald Trump will not be a factor in the 2024 Election. However, Trump is asserting himself in numerous congressional races throughout the country. What if Trump can convince Republicans he is still the leader of the party and should be given an opportunity to run for president once again? The answer is, it would be an unmitigated disaster for the country and for the Republican Party.
To clear the air, I should note that I did not vote for either Clinton or Trump in 2016 or Biden or Trump in 2020. In fact, I have continuously badmouthed the former president, and the current president. Nevertheless, there are a number of conservatives who are thinking about supporting Trump. Immigration, crime, claims that Trump was robbed in the last election are strong subjects for the former president to discuss.
I really believe that, at most, Trump will have some influence in the Republican primaries over conservative contenders who are frightened by him. I’ve stated that Trump will be a ghost in 2024, on this blog. But Fox News talking heads are selling Trump once again, incredibly, as the anti-Biden candidate. The truth is that both men are incompetent, untruthful, too old and downright harmful to our democracy. It is these facts that worry me most.
I don’t want Trump or Biden negotiating with Putin relating to the Ukraine crisis. Trump thinks every diplomatic situation is like a real estate deal or buying a casino and throwing it into bankruptcy. He thinks he is more intelligent than all other politicians, a blatant misconception. He is a shyster and accused felon. Biden has no leadership qualities at all. Say no more about him.
So, is Trump going to attempt to steal the presidency? Probably. He will likely use techniques that were employed on January 6, 2020 when Trump encouraged his followers to storm the Capitol and disrupt the election process. I don’t doubt that there was some voter fraud in 2020. But no one has uncovered definitive evidence that it impacted the outcome of the election. Biden was voted in fair and square. Do Americans really want a rebel rouser like Trump as their leader, the leader of the most powerful nation on Earth? Do they want a confused and disjointed administration and inane policies?
These are questions you should ask yourself if you have the slightest inkling that you want Trump to be president. He proved without a doubt, that businesspeople are not great politicians. Trump tried to find qualified people to work with him for years. Most quit. If he wins again, very few super talented individuals would agree to join his new administration.
Donald Trump has been accused of being a tax cheater, liar, seditionist, narcissist and misogynist. The man has no redeeming character qualities. He leads by attacking anyone who disagrees with him. Foreign leaders laughed at him behind his back when he exited the room. Intimidation was his most used weapon.
Trump became president in 2020 because he actually ran against someone who is more despicable than he, Hillary Clinton. Americans were sick and tired of the same old corruption in government. Voting for a businessman was an experiment that didn’t work out.
Donald Trump is not honest, with followers or with himself. He is incapable of making an error and fessing up to it. Do you really want Trump as a person who would decide whether to launch nuclear missiles? Putin and Xi think the man is a moron.
Smarten up Republicans, just ignore Trump and vote for the individuals who will serve you with honor, integrity and determination. It is disheartening to think that Donald Trump is once again dominating headlines for anything other than crimes he committed while leading the country.
