As the November midterms get closer and closer, more political discourse is being dedicated to the 2024 presidential election.
While this election is still a little ways off, speculations about who will run and try to win the nomination (on both sides) continues. 2024 is largely expected to be impacted by how this year’s November midterms shake out. Thus far, momentum seems to favor Republicans.
On former President Trump running for another term in office, views are divided. The former president’s hardcore loyalists are more than eager for him to run.
However, there are others on the right who warn that Trump can’t win and believe Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis might be a better candidate.
As all of this plays out, former GOP House Speaker Paul Ryan has come out to announce (yet again) that Trump won’t be the nominee in 2024, as reported by Breitbart News.
Ryan on Trump and 2024
During an interview with Fox Business, the former House Speaker said the Republican Party won’t grant Trump the nomination in 2024 because the party actually wants to win.
Later, Ryan explained that swing voters and suburban voters are important demographics. He then mentioned that while suburban voters aren’t fans of Trump, they do like the Republican Party.

The former House Speaker also made a point of mentioning that a GOP candidate who is not Trump will be able to bring in those extra voters that Republicans need in a general election.
In previous comments about the 2024 presidential election, Ryan has also reiterated that Trump is unelectable and his unelectability will be more than apparent by the time 2024 gets here.
DeSantis, former UN ambassador Nikki Haley, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and others were listed by Ryan as potentials for the 2024 presidential election.
Before Ryan wrapped up with Fox Business, he also claimed that Trump’s presidency led to Republicans losing both chambers of Congress.
At this rate, Americans will have to wait and see who declares themselves as candidates in the 2024 presidential election. Paul Ryan is not the only Republican to openly shoot down talk about Trump being the nominee in 2024, either.
DeSantis: “I took the arrows so you didn’t have to.”
That’s his 2024 case right there.

During a recent event in Washington DC, former Vice President Mike Pence was asked about whether or not he’d support Trump if he ran in the next election. Pence responded to this by saying there may be another individual he’s prefer more than Trump.
This advanced speculation about the former vice president potentially running in 2024 or supporting a Republican who is not Trump in the primary election.
