Ex-president Donald Trump is hitting the road today to get started on his reignited MAGA rallies after his humiliating November loss, and one insider is warning other Republicans that Donald is on a warpath and plans to serve notice to the party that he simply is not to be challenged when it comes to control over the GOP.
The Daily Beast’s Asawin Suebsaeng reports that Trump plans to utilize these rallies not only to fire up his already rabid, mouth-foaming base but also to serve notice to the entirety of the Republican party that he plans to be the star of the GOP and he won’t be playing nice with anyone who tries to get in the way of that.
According to the report, the disgraced ex-president is almost constantly badgering his closest aides for information on where he’s stacking up to over Republican party sweethearts such as Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, his former vice president Mike Pence and ex-Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.
“Close advisers have routinely assured Trump that he is a shoo-in for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination, should he ultimately run, and that any of the other heavy-hitters in the party would be crushed if they took him on, according to three people with knowledge of such recent conversations,” the report reads. “Still, Trump is keeping a watchful eye, in the event any of his current allies end up growing dissatisfied with being relegated to the ex-president’s 2024 running-mate considerations.”

With that being said, one insider close to Trump is now issuing a dire warning to other members of the party regarding the hell they can expect to pay should they dare try to challenge Donald Trump.
“In [recent] conversations that I’ve had with him, he has said that he wants to be everywhere to remind people, not just Republicans, that he’s still in charge,” the ex-president insider warned. “The message is a pretty straightforward one: I am still leading this party, and if you want to try to challenge me for that, it will get ugly.”
“His overwhelming popularity in the GOP and among the base of conservative voters—even after the deadly MAGA riot, and Republicans losing the House, Senate, and White House on his watch—is something that Trump is determined to preserve,” the Beast report goes on to note.
It’s pretty clear that Donald Trump is one scorned individual these days and intends to take no prisoners.
