Romney admits Trump will likely be the GOP nominee if he runs in 2024

Never-Trumpers and Democrats desperately wishing for Donald Trump to go away are unlikely to get their wish as Trump re-enters the political world by way of this week’s Conservative Political Action Conference.

One of Trump’s staunchest GOP opponents, Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) was forced to admit on Tuesday that if Trump runs for president in 2024, he’ll likely win the GOP nomination.

Forced out in the open

Romney, the only Republican Senator that voted to convict Trump of the charges in both failed impeachments, has long made it clear that he wants Trump to be expelled from the party.

Romney’s spluttering about Trump appears to only have served to increase Trump’s popularity and decreased his own.

Despite the crowing about Trump’s second impeachment being the final nail in the coffin of Trump’s political career in the days following his acquittal, many of Trump’s enemies have had to quietly come to terms with the reality that the former president remains wildly popular.

“He has by far the largest voice and a big impact in my party,” Romney confessed during a New York Times interview. “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.”

“A lot can happen between now and 2024,” Romney noted, but said that recent polls showing Trump coming out on top of a number of hypothetical primary matchups make it likely that “he wins in a landslide.”

Trump takes control

Donald Trump is expected to come roaring back on the scene over the weekend as a key speaker at CPAC in Florida.

Former GOP House Speaker Newt Gingrich noted on Sunday that the reality within the GOP is that Donald Trump’s “reach” is still astronomical and that no one in the GOP can “can fight him” — Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) learned that one the hard way.

“[W]hat’s very striking is that President Trump still has such enormous reach in the party that nobody can fight him,” said Gingrich.”I mean, you can complain about him. You can criticize him. But McConnell can’t possibly fight Trump. He doesn’t have a big enough base.

“And it’s also a reminder that there is sort of an establishment insider party that sits around at cocktail parties in Washington,” he continued, “and then there’s this huge country outside of Washington. And that country in 2015, by about two to one, did not like the Republican leadership in the Congress, and that was the forerunner of us ending up with Trump as the presidential nominee.”

No matter how desperately RINOs like Romney and McConnell want Trump gone, its increasingly clear that he’s here to stay — and GOP voters could not be more delighted.

    1. Romney along with other Trump haters are trying to brainwash us all into believing that what they call “Trumpism” is a cult while what Trump has stood for is freedom, liberty and AMERICANISM!! They are totally frightened that a non career politician like Trump could unify the country as he has done. So they do all that they can do to preserve the swamp they have lived in and the power they have stolenfrom we the people is to denigrate Trump in every way possible. What they are actually doing is to denigrate Americanism. To garner ever more power by killing off government of, by and for the people with the communist model of government of, by and for the governors!

      1. Very well stated.
        Trump is a businessman and not a politician and knows how to get the job done and deliver results. Plus he has a proven track record of solid and outstanding accomplishments.
        He should announce his running in 2014 in Phoenix, Arizona and rise from the ashes (and kick some ash) like the “phoenix” did.

        1. Your comments are on point! Trump did prove his talents as a outstanding businessman. I hope that he will find a way to continue to help America!! We need hard working people like him- Someone that will fight for what is right for this country and for the American People!

      2. President Trump did his job, and he did it well. He didn’t try to get out of work and accomplish more than most Presidents. He is a businessman and they get things done.

    2. Yes he is and the only position he should hold is head toilet bowl cleaner. He is not and never will be a man of the people, or the constitution. He was a terrible governor and is a terrible senator.

  1. Which is why the Democrats in the form of HR1 are trying to usurp the States abilities to run their own elections. BTW, a little piece of paper called the Constitution gives the States and only the States the last say in their elections! This Bill is nothing but an end run around the Constitution and I am sure they will run up against more than one State that will say “Stay the heck out of our elections!”

    1. They rhinos and demonRats forgot the COS
      In the constitution
      They never really read the full constitution
      Act like they know it all…
      Huh? Ain’t so

    2. what we the people must do is VOTE OUT ALL THE DEMOCRAT GOVERNORS
      AND VOTE IN ALL REPUBLICAN GOVERNORS. THAT WILL TAKE CARE OF THIS PROBLEM

  3. Romney does realize that he and a few others are the only ones that the people want disappeared from the Republican Party.

  4. I wouldn’t vote for Romney if hew was the last man on earth after what he did to Donald Trump voting to convict him on 2 different times he wants to be a democrat LET HIM

  5. I hope he gets all of the Democrats and Republicans rhinos out of office. If you are putting money in a off shore accounts. I would say they are dirty and scamming money from the people that pay taxes. Why else would the have a off shore accounts. There is only one kind of justice for them now double standard. The laws are for every one. Demacrats are not exenptions.

  6. Romney the RINO:
    “Joe Slick got wealthy as a liar.
    He offered his services for hire.
    He could twist the truth
    With a skill uncouth.
    Politicians were his buyer”
    Thank you for your trust,
    The truth solely your lust.

  7. Romney nothing, Trump will be running for President in2024 and going win if get corruption out elections and Keep FBI at bay.FBI Run By Hillary @ nancy it’s power struggle between two.

  8. The concept of AMERICA FIRST is not going away. No matter what the SWAMP does will not change that. More and more Americans are believing that the Washington SWAMP has sold them to the CCP and the ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT

  9. Romney! So glad he did not win the presidency . What a turn coat! I wonder with all his religious knowledge if knows about Judas! Oh , that is right, he has a different Bible ! He is Such a disappointment! Trump was right about the swamp! He did a good job weeding them out! We need him back to finish the job! Maybe too late after 4 years of this ridiculous nonesense.Trump is not perfect, he has made mistakes however, he tried to honor GOD , not afraid to acknowledge him ,and he loves this country . God used him to show what this country could really be! However, God Almighty is in control of it all and he is the one making the final decision , HE is not looking to see if we are republican or democrat, but he is looking for those who truly love him with their whole heart, mind and soul. Those are the ones whose final residence will be heaven, I think it may be sooner then we think!!
