Former Bill Clinton advisor Dick Morris recently insisted that Donald Trump will run for president in 2024 and even went as far as saying that Trump is going to win.
While speaking to Newsmax on Sunday’s Wake up America show, Morris promoted his latest book The Return: Trump’s Big 2024 Comeback, and he explained why he was so confident in the former president’s chances of returning to the White House.
So far, Trump has only hinted that he would be making a presidential run in 2024 and has not made an official announcement.
“The phrase is not ‘likely’, the phrase is dead pipe certain: He’s certain to run, and he is, I believe, certain to get the Republican nomination,” Morris said. “I think he’ll actually get it by acclamation. I don’t think there’ll be a primary fight.”
When asked about Gov. Ron DeSantis, Morris seemed unconcerned about the growth in support for the Florida Governor, saying that the talk around DeSantis was not something to be worried about and he reiterated he believed Trump was what was needed to ensure the Republican party succeeds.
“Well, there’s a lot of Republicans who have sort of the 6-year itch,” Morris added. “You’ve heard of the 7-year itch. It’s been six years of Trump, but they’re flirting with DeSantis and other candidates, but only Trump can win this election.”
“First of all, only Trump can say, ‘I did it: You want to know if I can cut inflation or hold down gas prices, seal the border? I did it when I was president,” Morris said. “So he’s sort of a hybrid: He’s half incumbent and half challenger. Secondly, he has access to the Hispanic vote and to the white, high school-educated vote that other candidates really don’t have, and that gives him a tremendous capacity.”
“So I think that only Trump can win, but don’t let it bother you, DeSantis is not going to run,” Morris said.
