Donald Trump has already discussed a possible 2024 presidential campaign with some of his top advisers, according to Axios.
This is the clearest indication yet that Trump understands he has lost the 2020 election to Joe Biden — even as the president continues to falsely insist that he is the true winner, that there has been election fraud and that his team will fight to the end in the courts. …
Aides advising Republicans who are likely to run in 2024 are dreading the prospect of a Trump run given the extraordinary sway he holds over millions of GOP voters.
Programming note: the Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell, will hold a photo-op with newly elected Republican senators at 4pm ET today.
McConnell has not yet weighed in on Joe Biden’s win in the presidential race, and reporters will almost certainly try to get him to comment on it this afternoon, as Donald Trump refuses to concede.
