Today, the Supreme Court of the United States dealt a massive blow to President Trump, his supporters and America at large by refusing to review the Pennsylvania 2020 Election cases. I don’t know what that means for the other battleground states in the last election but, I am not optimistic. People on the left no doubt will cheer this news whereas people on the right will lament. I join the right in this not out of solidarity but out of concern for my country.
If I ran for public office and there was a hint of impropriety, I would want every detail checked so as not to appear an illegitimate winner. Such a stigma would taint my administration and hamper the goodwill needed when crossing the aisle to get things done. However, such is not the case in these times and as a result, the ideological divide across party lines will only widen. Injustices, real and imagined, will color the views of every citizen and encourage some to harm. (Just wait.)
So, how did President Trump handle the news? Essentially, he said it ain’t over until its over. There have been rumors from inside his family that Donald Trump would be running again in 2024. Here’s a quote from The Epoch Times.
Former President Donald Trump’s daughter-in-law and former senior adviser Lara Trump indicated that he is “probably” interested in running for office in 2024.
“He has told us to stay tuned and that this is not over for him, and he has indicated that he probably would be interested in running again in 2024,” she told Fox News on Sunday.
In discussing the former president’s scheduled appearance at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Orlando, Florida this week—his first public appearance since leaving the White House—Lara Trump called him the “head of the Republican Party.”
“He is really the person that everyone will continue to turn to, in order to help them get across the line, whether we’re talking about 2022 or beyond,” she said. “I think this man has changed politics, and he has changed our party, the Republican Party. There is no doubt about it.”
Despite whispers of a 2024 run, there are also suggestions to the contrary being argued. Check out this quote from the DailyWire:
Former President Donald Trump wants to reassert control over Republicans by billing himself as the party’s “presumptive 2024 nominee” after losing reelection to President Joe Biden.
Trump is scheduled to speak at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference to take place in Florida over the weekend. He intends to use his speech to pummel the Biden administration as well as stake his claim as the de facto head of the GOP moving forward, Axios reports, citing anonymous allies of the ex-president.
Some close to the former president believe that Trump is unlikely to run again in 2024. According to Axios: “Many Trump confidants think he’ll pretend to run but ultimately pass. He knows the possibility — or threat — gives him leverage and attention.”
So, will he or won’t he? I predict he will. Why? He is a fighter for sure and now more than ever, its personal. Its about how his name will be remembered for generations. I very much doubt that he would walk away from a situation where he feels he has been wronged and wronged “bigly.” Take for example the other thing that the Supreme Court did today, they ordered President Donald Trump’s accountants to release his financial and tax records to prosecutors in New York. This was part of President Donald Trump’s response:
So now, for more than two years, New York City has been looking at almost every transaction I’ve ever done, including seeking tax returns which were done by among the biggest and most prestigious law and accounting firms in the U.S. The Tea Party was treated far better by the IRS than Donald Trump. The Supreme Court never should have let this “fishing expedition” happen, but they did. This is something which has never happened to a President before, it is all Democrat-inspired in a totally Democrat location, New York City and State, completely controlled and dominated by a heavily reported enemy of mine, Governor Andrew Cuomo. These are attacks by Democrats willing to do anything to stop the almost 75 million people (the most votes, by far, ever gotten by a sitting president) who voted for me in the election—an election which many people, and experts, feel that I won. I agree!
Rather than quote the entire rebuttal, I’ll skip down to the last line.
I will fight on, just as I have, for the last five years (even before I was successfully elected), despite all of the election crimes that were committed against me. We will win!
That does not sound like someone who is tired of the fighting and wants to go quietly into the night. As with any war and yes, this is a war (of ideologies), there are people who will dissent and those who are roaring for a fight. And in this war, the mainstream media will do what it can to stymie the voice of President Trump but, his supporters will rally, even at personal cost. The old rules of politicking will have to change on both sides and soul-searching will have to commence in earnest. And more than anything else concerning politics, you can expect loads of irony and hypocrisy. As an example of that, umm… I’ll just leave this here.
That’s it for today. More tomorrow. Please share this.
