GOP Source: Trump Isn’t Running In 2024 Because Of His Massive Legal Problems And Fear Of Losing: Report

Will disgraced, one-term, twice-impeached former president Donald Trump make a run for the White House once again in 2024? That depends on who you talk to.

But according to former Fox News host Megyn Kelly, a source who once worked at the Republican National Committee has told her the Donald won’t be tossing his hat into the ring for two reasons: The plethora of legal problems facing him and his fear of losing yet again.

On her podcast, Kelly revealed Wednesday:

“Now, let me run this by you. Talked to a guy, used to be high up in the RNC, right? And he said, Trump’s not gonna run again. Trump just can’t say that he’s not gonna run again.

“He said he would never declare anyway, because as soon as he declares, like right? If he were to declare tomorrow, on the chance that he is gonna run again the RNC could no longer pay his legal bills.”

The former Fox host added:

“They couldn’t support him with his legal bills because the RNC has to stay neutral. So they can’t be funding one guy’s legal bills. So that — that I thought that was kind of interesting that like, Trump will have to delay if he’s going to announce that he’s running as long as humanly possible, cause he’s got a lot of legal bills, but it was this guy’s strong belief that he will not run again, that he’s too worried about losing.”

Mediaite notes that the RNC has indeed made it painfully clear to Trump that if he does announce another run for the presidency, they will shut off the spigot of money that is currently paying his legal bills, which are growing more burdensome by the day.

Last October, the RNC had warned Trump that they would no longer pay for his legal fees if he declared a 2024 campaign. At that time, the committee had paid over $2 million in legal fees to firms representing Trump.

According to CBS, since the FBI raid of his Florida home at Mar-a-Lago, Trump appears to have sourced funds from the Save America PAC to foot the bill of over $3.8 million dollars in legal consulting fees since August.
