In the wake of another GOP presidential debate, the Trump campaign has called on the Republican National Committee (RNC) to put an end to the Republican primary debates ahead of the 2024 presidential election.
The campaign cited President Trump’s monstrous lead over the field of weak-polling GOP presidential contenders, writing, “The RNC should immediately put an end to any further primary debates so we can train our fire on Crooked Joe Biden and quit wasting time and money that could be going to evicting Biden from the White House.”
On Wednesday night, President Trump chose to travel to Michigan in lieu of participating in the second Republican debate, speaking to striking United Auto Workers amid increasingly tense auto manufacturing conditions.
This was also the second time that Trump skipped out on attending the GOP debate. The first time, Trump upstaged the event when Tucker Carlson released a sit-down interview with the president on the same night as the first debate.
This time, President Trump stole the spotlight by delivering a speech in Clinton Township that asked union leaders for their endorsement and laid out a clear vision for restoring economic superiority and opportunity to the American working class.
The Trump campaign explained, “Tonight’s GOP debate was as boring and inconsequential as the first debate, and nothing that was said will change the dynamics of the primary contest being dominated by President Trump. President Trump has a 40- or 50-point lead in the primary election and a 10-point lead over Joe Biden in the general election, and it’s clear that President Trump alone can defeat Biden.”
President Donald Trump is indeed the frontrunner in the Republican race for the primary nomination. The latest data from Morning Consult this week found that Trump currently holds 58 percent of support among potential Republican primary voters nationwide, while Gov. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., came in second with 15 percent.
