There is a strong feeling that Donald Trump will be the Republican presidential candidate in 2024.
What happened last November was beyond criminal. But Trump knew that the fix was in and failed to stop it. He was out-manoeuvred. There are few second chances in politics. In that crucial battle, the Swamp won.
Trump was badly (or more likely treasonously) advised. He should have been briefed that on day one of his presidency he needed to not only remove the heads of all the intelligence services, but also the next level down. He failed to do so and they undermined him from before he swept into office right up to the present day.
Ron DeSantis will be the next Republican presidential candidate, and the next president. Don Jr. likely doesn’t have the stomach for the job after seeing the way that the press so relentlessly and viciously lied about his father. Trump will eventually, reluctantly, give his blessing and the tens of millions of Trump faithful will fall in behind DeSantis. Even better, many democrats who are appalled at the overt corruption and extremism of the Pelosi-led Democrats, the senility of the president and the gormlessness of V.P. Harris will be willing to vote for DeSantis. Under no circumstances could they ever bring themselves to vote for Orange Man Bad.
You did a great job Mr. Trump, under the most telling of circumstances. Yes, you were robbed and you have every right to feel bitter. While the Democrat party held true to a long history of electoral shenanigans, the presstitutes dropped to a new level of anti-Americanism. But who was the saboteur who held a senior position within your own camp?
The good news is that the focus on the electoral process in 2024 (and 2022) will be so intense, that it will difficult for the Dems to steal it again. DeSantis will ride to power largely on your coattails.
That’s fine Mr. Trump. Play some more golf and know that you have changed American politics for the better for at least a generation. You stood unflinching and seemingly almost alone at times against the mighty barbarian horde of Progressivism. You held the line and, in so doing, you reshaped the Republicans as the party of productive, working Americans – and decent people in general. Most presidents need two terms in order to make their mark. One was plenty for #45.
