Wat Mitt Romney * presies * reg kry oor Donald Trump

Mitt Romney is geen aanhanger van Donald Trump nie. In werklikheid, die Republikeinse senator in Utah is miskien die belangrikste kritikus van die 45ste president in die GOP.

Mitt Romney is ook 'n politieke realis. Which is why he said this of Trump at a New York Times “Dealbook” gebeurtenis vroeër die week:
He has by far the largest voice and a big impact in my party. I don’t know if he’s planning to run in 2024 of nie, maar as hy dit doen, I’m pretty sure he would win the nomination.
Romney is right. Presies reg.
    For all of the hand-wringing among people like Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (Kentucky) and Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney about the need to excise Trump from the future of the Republican Party, the truthas told by poll after poll of GOP votersis that the overwhelming majority of them want the billionaire businessman to stick around.
    Need proof? 'N Onlangse Quinnipiac University national poll shows that three-quarters of Republicans (75%) want Trump toplay a prominent rolein the GOP going forward.

    President Trump is the leader of the Republican Party,” getwiet Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan, a leader of the House Freedom Caucus and one of Trump’s most loyal supporters, op Woensdag.
    The simple truth that Romney exposes is that, like it or not, Trump would be an overwhelming favorite to win the 2024 Republican nomination if he chose to run.
    Those trying to be Trump 2.0 (Missouri’s Josh Hawley, Arkansas’ Tom Cotton, and former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley) would either drop their own candidacies or watch their chances dim significantly.
    Those trying to move the party totally beyond Trump (Nebraska’s Ben Sasse, Maryland’s Larry Hogan) will have to demonstrate that there is anything close to a majority coalition within the GOP that supports their post-/anti-Trump views.
      Intussen, Trump het 100% name identification, all the fundraising cash he would ever need and the majority of the party base with him.
      Die punt: Trump’s political future is the simplest part of his life going forward. His many financial and legal entanglements are much more complexand pose far greater risks to him.
