Former US President Donald Trump has attacked his potential rivals on the Republican ticket for the 2024 presidential election.
Trump described the former permanent representative to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, as “very ambitious,” and accused the governors of Florida, Ron Dosantis, and Virginia, Glen Youngkin, of being ungrateful, knowing that none of these three has yet announced his candidacy in the race for the White House. .
Trump’s comments came during a half-hour interview in which he said he believed Haley, Dosantis, Yongkin and former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo should not run against him because of his past relationships with them, though Trump conceded that would likely not stop them. He said, “Yes, I would say that, but I know how life works (…) I know how politics works (…) and politics is a microcosm, but it is more ferocious than life.” He added, “I helped all of those (…) I brought Mike (Pompeo) out of nowhere… I think he always said he would not run against the president.” But «time passes and then they want to run, because they are people with ambition. But you know, their polls are really bad.” It is worth noting that Pompeo did not say whether he would run for president in 2024, although he recently released his memoirs and visited early primary states, such as Iowa and New Hampshire. for the Republican Party.
