Trump didn’t see this one coming…
Republican Senator Bill Cassidy (La.) predicted former President Donald Trump would lose the 2024 general election against Joe Biden if he’s ultimately the GOP’s presidential nominee.
Cassidy made the comments during a Sunday appearance on CNN and added that he thinks any other candidate in the Republican primary field is better suited to defeat Biden, a scathing rebuke of the former president he’s often supported.
“Do you think that Donald Trump should drop out of the race?” host Kasie Hunt asked.
“I think so. But, obviously, that’s up to him. I mean, you’re just asking me my opinion,” Cassidy responded.
“But he will lose to Joe Biden, if you look at the current polls. I’m a Republican. I think any Republican on that stage in Milwaukee will do a better job than Joe Biden,” he added. “And so I want one of them to win. If former President Trump ends up getting the nomination, but cannot win a general, that means we will have four more years of policies which have led to very high inflation, to a loss of purchasing power for the average American equivalent to $10,000, and to many other things which I think have been deleterious to our country’s future.”
However, Sen. Cassidy confirmed that he would vote for Trump if he becomes the Republican nominee.
