- Gov. Chris Sununu “terrible idea” for President Donald Trump to announce a 2024 presidential run before the holiday.
- Sununu says as people approach the holidays, they don’t want to focus on politics.
- It is widely accepted that Trump will make his announcement to run for office on November 15.
GOP Gov. Chris Sununu on Sunday said it would be a “terrible idea” for former President Donald Trump to announce a 2024 run for president.
Sununu told Stephanopoulos that as people approach the holiday season, they want to move away from politics and focus on family.
“So, now’s just a horrible time for big political statements, save that for early 2023 would be my message,” Sununu told Greg Stephanopoulos, host of ABC’s “This Week.”
“It’s going to be great for the media, ‘Saturday Night Live’ will probably love it, but for the rest of us, we’re going to focus on spending time with our families and kind of taking a breath in the quiet of a nonpolitical world.”
“Let’s get back to ad nauseam car commercials and pharmaceutical commercials because the negative political ads have all just driven us crazy,” Sununu said.
When asked by Stephanopoulos if he would support Trump in 2024 run for President, Sununu said, “not really.”
Sununu added that he believes there will be a lot of other great candidates in the running.
“I’m excited to see who runs for president on both sides,” Sununu said. “I think everybody who wants to get in is going to get in.”
President Biden has maintained his intent to run in 2024, but he has not yet made an official decision.
Trump has promised to make “a very big announcement” on November 15 at Mar-a-Lago, which is widely accepted to be about his plans to run for office in 2024.
A Trump advisor recently told CBS’s Jim Acosta that Trump is in “self-destruction mode” and it would irresponsible of him to announce his run for president after the midterm election as he lashes out at his Republican rivals, including Florida Gov. Ron Desantis and Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin.
