Paul Ryan says Trump will not be 2024 nominee.
Paul Ryan said he doesn't think that former president Donald Trump will be the Republican Party's candidate for president in 2024.
The former Republican House speaker, who has a bad history with Trump, gave a harsh review of him in an interview with Teneo on Thursday. Teneo is a D.C. consulting firm where he works as a vice-chairman.
"We all know he's going to lose, or, to put it another way, we all know he has a much better chance of losing the White House than any other candidate on our side. So why would we choose to do that?" Ryan said.
"As long as he can, he will try to scare people out of the race," Ryan said. "I don't really know if it makes a difference if he runs or not... I don't think he's going to be the nominee."
Ryan said that everyone who might run against Trump is afraid, and nobody wants to be the first to run against him. But for many people who want to run, 2024 is a make-or-break year, he said.
"A few people are going to run because it's the only cycle they can run in. He said, "They can't wait until 2028." "If they're ever going to leave, they have to leave now. And they don't want to die without trying."
Trump has given many hints that he wants to run for the GOP nomination in 2024. His former top adviser, Kellyanne Conway, reportedly said he "would like to" announce by Thanksgiving.
