Donald Trump could be facing one challenger he didn’t expect

The 2024 Presidential race is already heating up.

Donald Trump is attempting to crowd out the field on the Republican side.

But Trump could be facing one challenger he didn’t expect.

On the heels of a lackluster Midterm election cycle for the Republicans, Donald Trump announced that he would be running for President again in 2024.

Trump announced as early as possible to dissuade other contenders for jumping in the ring, but it does not appear that Trump will have a walk to the nomination like he did in 2020.

Former South Carolina Governor and United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley is reportedly on the cusp of announcing her candidacy for 2024.

The Post and Courier reported that “[a]ccording to an invitation soon going out to her backers, Haley’s advertised ‘special announcement’ will come Feb. 15 at the The Shed at the Charleston Visitor Center, a downtown gathering spot that could draw hundreds of supporters into the heart of the city’s tourism district.”

Haley’s candidacy would be a reversal for her because in April 2021, she said that she would not run if Trump were in the race.

Haley said, “I would not run if President Trump ran, and I would talk to him about it . . . That’s something that we will have a conversation about, at some point.”

But things have changed.

Trump is not as invincible in Republican circles as he was a few short years ago.

During a Fox News interview, Haley said, “When you’re looking at a run for President, you look at two things . . . You first look at, does the current situation push for new leadership? The second question is, am I that person that could be that new leader, that, yes, we need to go in a new direction? And can I be that leader? Yes, I think I can be that leader . . . I don’t think you need to be 80 years old to go be a leader in D.C . . . I think we need a young generation to come in, step up, and really start fixing things.”

The last comment about age could’ve been a subtle jab at Trump, who will be 78 by the time of the 2024 election.

Trump is a brawler, so he will surely throw some haymakers at his former UN ambassador.

But Trump is likely far more worried about Ron DeSantis, who looks like his strongest contender.

Trump senses it, too, which is why he has tried to stick him with the nickname “Ron DeSanctimonious.”

Unfortunately for Trump, DeSantis has not taken the bait.
