Some prominent Republicans are warning that former President Donald Trump should never run for president again and that they would rather see someone else on the ballot in the next presidential election.

Behind the scenes, it is said that Donald Trump wants to become president again, however, his popularity among some Republicans is declining, to the extent that they have openly stated that the also tycoon should not run in 2024 because he will lose.

Former President Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) and former Vice President Mike Pence have indicated in recent days that they would prefer to see someone else on the ballot in the next presidential election.

In addition to the Republicans’ statements, Ryan, Bush and Liz Cheney have not ceased to show their concern about another possible candidacy

“Some people like Trump and some people don’t like Trump,” said former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.). “He is the most dominant individual figure in the match. It is a fact”.

While Pence, who laid the groundwork for a 2024 campaign of his own with frequent visits to Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina, openly indicated whether he would vote for his former boss a few years ago, and with a slight smile noted, “well, there might be someone more to whom I would prefer more”.

Ryan, who retired from the House in 2019 after numerous public spats with Trump, argued earlier this month that the former president could cost Republicans the White House if he’s on the ballot two years from now: “We all know that will lose. Or let me put it this way: We all know that he is far more likely to lose the White House than anyone else running for president from our side of the aisle. So why would we want to go with that?”

Bush told CNN a couple of days ago that he believes there will be “a longing for, A, a new generation of leadership in our country in 2024 and, B, candidates who are focused on the future, not necessarily the grievances of the past.” ”.

Joe O’Dea is along the same lines and has said that “I don’t think Donald Trump should run again” and that if he does “I will actively campaign against Donald Trump and make sure we have four or five really good Republicans in this moment. Ron DeSantis, Nikki Haley, Tim Scott, could run and serve eight years.”

Despite the fact that some Republicans do not want Trump to become president again, the former president remains popular among Americans, and this is reflected in the rallies, however, the former president has not openly expressed that he will fight for the presidential chair, although he plays saying ?do it again?.
