Establishment Would NOT Be Happy
While many of the former President’s supporters would be very happy to hear him run again in 2024, there is a bevy of establishment Republicans who would be less than thrilled.
George W. Bush, another former Republican President, has repeatedly taken jabs at Trump in recent interviews, describing the current GOP as “isolationist, protectionist, and to a certain extent, nativist.”
Bush urged the party to move away from being an allegedly exclusive “white Anglo-Saxon Protestantism” party, as well as frowning upon purity tests for all of its members.
“The idea of kind of saying you can only be Republican ‘if,’ then the ultimate extension of that is it ends up being a one-person party,” he said in a thinly-veiled swipe at Trump.

“If the Republican Party stands for exclusivity – it used to be country clubs, now evidently it’s White Anglo-Saxon Protestantism – then it’s not going to win anything.” https://t.co/J0q3Ris50V
Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) has also expressed her disdain for Trump running again in 2024.
“I don’t think that that’s going to happen. And I think it’s important that it not happen, given what he did,” Cheney said referencing Trump’s alleged role in inciting protests at the Capitol in January.
In a statement released earlier today, Trump blasted Cheney as a “warmonger” who has “virtually no support left in the Great State of Wyoming.”
Republicans are reportedly looking to oust Cheney from her leadership role before the end of the month.
She and Bush might be relegated to commenting on the 2024 election on Democrat-friendly media outlets while Trump once again tries to make America great again.
