(TheLibertyRevolution.com)- There has been a lot of talk and speculation about who will end up running for president in 2024 and which candidate will ultimately emerge as the challenger to President Joe Biden, assuming he runs for re-election.
This week, Dick Morris a political strategist, said that he believes that person is indeed going to be former President Donald Trump. Not only that, he believes that, despite potential challenges coming from Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and others, Trump won’t have much of an issue at all emerging as the GOP candidate.
Morris recently released his new book titled “The Return: Trump’s Big 2024 Comeback.” In it, he says that Trump will have no problems in the GOP primary and he’ll also return to the White House following the 2024 election.
On Sunday, Morris said while appearing on the “Wake Up America” program:
“The phrase is not ‘likely.’ The phrase is dead pipe certain: He’s certain to run, and he is, I believe, certain to get the Republican nomination. I think he’ll actually get it by acclamation. I don’t think there’ll be a primary fight.”
That last statement is quite surprising, especially considering some of the people who have been mentioned as potential GOP candidates and challengers to Trump. In addition to DeSantis, other potential Republican candidates include former Vice President Mike Pence and even Trump’s one-time Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo.
But, Morris said that he believes that all the discussions about potential viable challengers to Trump in the GOP primary is just talk. As he explained:
“Well, there’s a lot of Republicans who have sort of the six-year itch. You’ve heard of the seven-year itch. It’s been six years of Trump, but they’re flirting with DeSantis and other candidates, but only Trump can win this election.
“First of all, only Trump can say, ‘I did it: You want to know if I can cut inflation or hold down gas prices, seal the border? I did it when I was president.’ So, he’s sort of a hybrid: He’s half incumbent and half challenger.
“And secondly, he has access to the Hispanic vote and to the white, high school-educated vote that other candidates really don’t have, and that gives him a tremendous capacity. So, I think that only Trump can win, but don’t let it bother you DeSantis is not going to run.”
Morris served as an adviser for Trump in both 2016 as well as 2020, and he also served as an adviser for former Democratic President Bill Clinton. He said that his new book actually creates a roadmap for how Trump is going to win back the White House in 2024.
As he explained:
“We are going to wage a campaign in ’24 totally unlike the campaign we waged in 2020, profiting from some of the mistakes that we made. For example, we left ourselves very much open to ballot fraud. And we hustled like crazy to get out all committed interested voters who could vote Republican.
“We got 11 million more than we got in ’16, but the Democrats just sat back and got the couch potatoes.”
