“I believe what we have to do is take the nice that he constructed, go away the dangerous that he did, and get again to a spot the place we generally is a good, invaluable, efficient occasion.”
Is sensible! Besides there’s a 0% probability that Trump — or the bottom that he instructions — goes to associate with that plan.
“Nikki Haley reached out to former President Donald Trump on Wednesday to request a sit-down at Mar-a-Lago, however a supply acquainted tells Playbook that he turned her down. The 2 have not spoken because the riot on Jan. 6, when Haley blasted Trump for inciting his supporters to storm the Capitol.”
See, there is no such thing as a midway with Trump. No option to kind of align your self with him but additionally distance your self from the ugly stuff — like his actions (and inactions) within the January 6 US Capitol riot.
You’re both ALL IN on Trump or he sees you as all out — and subsequently truthful sport to be both a) ignored or b) attacked. And the one option to keep all in is to again him fully on each single factor he says and does. No questions requested.
So Haley’s technique would possibly make sense to her (or on paper) however in the actual world she’s going to have make a alternative: Are you with Trump or not?
The Level: Whether or not Trump himself runs once more in 2024, the basic query that each candidate who runs should reply is whether or not they’ll run with Trump or away from him. There is not any in between.
