When he speaks at the Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC) on Sunday, one-term failed former President Donald Trump is expected to claim yet again that the 2020 election was stolen from him, laying the foundation for another run at the White House in 2024.
During an appearance on Fox News, Meadows remarked:
Granted, Meadows could mean that the 2024 nominee will have the last name of Trump, but does anyone actually believe that any Trump other than the 45th president will be running if he decides to? Certainly not.
If you read a bit between the lines, it certainly seems that Meadows is suggesting another Trump will run with the old man. And the only Trumps who have expressed an interest in politics are Don Jr. and Ivanka.
Also, consider the reports about the Donald naming Ivanka as his running mate in 2020 before he decided on Mike Pence.
Of course, all of this supposes that the former president (and members of his family) won’t be incarcerated on financial fraud charges and therefore have zero chance of winning anything at all. That’s entirely possible, and actually seems more likely than another President Trump, no matter what first name you insert.
The “Trump movement” has nothing to do with politics and everything to do with keeping the Trump cult of personality alive.
