Republicans mulling run for president not waiting on Trump

Former President Donald Trump is teasing crowds across the country suggesting he may run for president again in 2024.

When asked whether he thinks the 2024 Republican field is frozen until Trump makes up his mind, former of State Mike Pompeo told News “I don’t.”

“President Trump was perfect, perfect for 2016. We needed that kind of disruption,” said Pompeo. “If I come to conclude that I’m the right person to carry that mantle forward, I will go and try and make that case to the American people starting in the great state of Iowa.”

Pompeo, Trump and former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley delivered the keynote speeches at the three-day Faith and Freedom Coalition’s Road to Majority Conference in Nashville.

POTENTIAL 2024 GOP PRESIDENTIAL FIELD DESCRIBED AS ‘AN EMBARRASSMENT OF RICHES’

This annual gathering of religious conservatives was designed to boost ahead of this year’s midterm elections.  When asked about 2024, Pompeo and Haley maintained they were focused on helping Republicans win congressional and governors races across the country and will officially decide their own political futures after the midterms.

“I don’t think I have to make that decision until the first of next year,” Haley told News. “I’ve never lost a race. I’m not going to start now.  If there’s a place for me, I will put 1000% and we’ll finish it.”
