Republican Sen. Mitt Romney has shared that he believes Donald Trump would get the GOP nomination if the former president decided to run again in 2024.
At the New York Times DealBook virtual event, Romney noted that he is unsure whether Trump will run again in the next presidential election. He also said that a lot of things are possible between now and 2024. Although, the Utah senator also said that he looks at the polls and that they show people who will possibly run in the next election. Given those people, Romney believes that if Trump runs, he will win the nomination “in a landslide.”
During the said event, the senator was asked if he would campaign against Trump in the next election. He did not directly mention that he would campaign against the former president. However, Romney made it clear that he will not vote for Trump. He also said he has never voted for the former president in the past either. Instead, the senator said he would back someone who can represent his “tiny wing” of the Republican party better.
Despite this, Romney acknowledged that Trump remains as one of the people with the biggest influence in the GOP at the moment. He says Trump definitely has “the largest voice” in the party and that he has a “big impact.”
The senator also mentioned that he’s uncertain what plans Trump’s family members have but he believes the former president “will continue playing a role.”
