Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said Thursday that if former President Donald Trump becomes the Republican Party’s presidential nominee again in 2024, he would “absolutely” throw his support behind the former president.
But, he says, a lot could happen between now then.
What are the details?
During an interview with Fox News‘ Bret Baier, the anchor asked McConnell if he believed Trump would be the GOP nominee during the next president election as some have predicted.
“Well, there’s a lot to happen between now and ’24,” the GOP leader responded, revealing, “I’ve got at least four members that I think are planning on running for president, plus some governors and others.”
“There’s no incumbent,” he continued, telling Baier it “should be a wide open race and fun for you all to cover.”
Baier then asked directly, “If [Trump] was the party’s nominee, would you support him?”
“The nominee of the party? Absolutely,” McConnell replied.
