Former House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) told a reporter that former President Donald Trump will not be the party’s nominee in 2024.
Ryan shared the comments during an interview on Thursday.

“Trump’s unelectability will be palpable by then,” Ryan said.
“We all know that he’s so much more likely to lose the White House than anybody else running for president on our side of the aisle, so why would we want to go with that?” he added.

“He’s going to try to intimidate people out of the race as long as he can,” Ryan continued.
“Whether he runs or not, I don’t really know if it matters … He’s not going to be the nominee, I don’t think.”

Some Republicans blasted the claim, noting Ryan as a failure with the party.
Others hope Trump won’t run, opening the door for a new candidate who can unite conservatives against President Joe Biden in 2024.
The strong comments certainly didn’t hold back on attacking Trump, who is already facing multiple lawsuits from those on the left.
