There are few Republicans in Washington today who have a more disparaging view of Donald Trump that Mitt Romney.
The Utah Senator has been no fan of Trump, and this has been the case for the entirety of either’s political careers. Romney was one of the first to speak up against Trump from within the confines of the GOP, and he was one of the most vocal proponents of convicting Trump during his second impeachment trial.
But, with only a few days left until Trump’s preemptively-lauded speech at CPAC, Romney is making a major admission about The Don’s future in politics.
The Utah senator, the only Republican who voted to convict Trump in both of his impeachment trials, said he expects the former president will continue to play a big role in the Republican Party even though he was voted out of office.take our poll - story continues below
“He has by far the largest voice and a big impact in my party,” Romney said at a New York Times DealBook virtual event on Tuesday. “I don’t know if he’s planning to run in 2024 or not, but if he does, I’m pretty sure he would win the nomination.”
Trump insiders have stated that the ex-President’s speech at CPAC will seek to reassert his dominance over the Republican Party, and that it would likely contain overtures and hints that Trump would run again for the White House in 2024.
