“No, I would not have. It is time, and he has a strong family,’ said Hutchinson. “I have been working with Ivanka and others, and they love America. But I will not, in 2024, support him for reelection. He’s going to have a vote, so he’s going to have a voice, as previous presidents do, but there are a lot of voices in the party.
“He continued, “Again, he does not decide our future. “We have to define it for ourselves, and that has to be based on the principles that have given us American strength.”
‘We have to respond to people who like Trump,’ he said. We have to react and connect with the issues that brought him the first election and, during his presidency, gave him support.
There’s one that we have to reach out to, but it’s based on conservative values and reaching out to important blue-collar voters who identify with him because he’s fighting for them, and we have to take that message, but we also have to deal with it with different personalities in a different way,” said Hutchinson.”
In an interview with MSNBC’s “Meet The Press,” former Texas Rep. Will Hurd, a Republican who resigned in late 2020, made similar remarks.
“This is a President who, in four years, has lost the House, the Senate, the White House,” Hurd said. “I think Herbert Hoover was the last person to do so and that was in the Great Depression. And, you know, the number of Republicans who were successful greatly outperformed President Trump when you look at the 2020 elections.
Trump has not yet announced that, in 2024, he will run again. What sort of help he would have if he wishes to do so remains to be seen.
