Congressional Republicans Signal Support for Trump 2024 Bid

'The president is very popular in the Republican Party, and he would be very tough to beat...'

Congressional Republicans have made it clear they will support President Donald Trump if he chooses to run for the White House again in 2024.

“If he were to run in 2024, I think he would be the nominee,” said Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., according to Politico. “And I would support him doing that. He’d have a lot of support out in the country.”

Trump’s campaign is contesting the results of the 2020 election in several key swing states, but he is planning his next step in case he loses his case in court.

Sources close to the president have hinted he might announce another presidential bid as soon as Inauguration Day, especially if he has the GOP’s support.

“It’d be great if he ran. He’s done a good job. I think he ought to run if he wants to run. Who knows what’s going to happen in ‘24?” Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla., said. “He can sell the things he’s accomplished.”

The Republican National Committee reportedly plans to invite several 2024 contenders to its January meeting, including Trump.

The list of potential candidates includes Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem, former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley, and Vice President Mike Pence.

Though the RNC has stood behind Trump throughout his presidency, the organization plans to remain “neutral” moving forward, according to the organization.

However, it will be difficult for any Republican to beat Trump, GOP congressmen said.

“The president is very popular in the Republican Party, and he would be very tough to beat,” Rep. Jim Banks, R-Ind., said.

Trump seems to know just how strong his pull is, because he reportedly joked at the White House Christmas party this week that he’s not going anywhere.

“It’s been an amazing four years,” Trump told the crowd, which included many Republican National Committee members. “We’re trying to do another four years. Otherwise, I’ll see you in four years.”
