Mick Mulvaney ‘absolutely’ expects Trump to be ‘leading GOP candidate’ in 2024

If the Great Heist of 2020 is successful, and the longer the counts drag out the better the odds are, imagine the reaction from the corrupt media cabal when Donald Trump is elected president once more in 2024.

A prospect that may very well happen, according to former acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney.

 

Speculating on what would happen if Trump loses the election, Mulvaney talked about who the leading Republican candidate might be in 2024.

“Now, folks are starting to realize, ‘Wait a second, if Donald Trump loses he might be the guy,’ and I’m telling you absolutely,” he said, in a webinar hosted by the Institute for International and European Affairs.

“I would absolutely expect the president to stay involved in politics and would absolutely put him on the shortlist of people who are likely to run in 2024,” he added. “He doesn’t like losing.”

Mulvaney described Trump as a “very high-energy 74-year-old,” adding he expects the president to be “further engaged in 2024 or 2028 if he were to lose this next election.”

He also noted that Trump would be younger than Biden currently is.

“Plus, don’t lose sight of the fact that he will be, I think, technically younger than Joe Biden is four years from now,” said the former director of the Office of Management and Budget.

“American elections can be a sloppy, ugly thing but it’s sort of like making law which we describe as making sausage: No one wants to see it happen but you enjoy the end product,” he added.

Mulvaney dismissed concerns about Trump taking legal actions over potential voting fraud, saying that “lawsuits were part of close elections.”

“It should not surprise anybody that there are lawyers and that there are lawsuits and it is not a tacit admission of loss, any more than it is a declaration of victory,” he said.

The media — Trump’s true opponent in the 2020 election — is pushing a narrative that Trump may not go along with a peaceful transition of power, but Mulvaney dismissed that notion as “crazy.”

Speaking with CNBC, he suggested the “other side” might be the problem if the courts back Trump’s complaints about election improprieties.

“If the process runs, and I expect it to run, and at the end of that process Joe Biden’s the president, you can absolutely guarantee a peaceful transition of power. I just hope the same is true on the other side,” Mulvaney said.

Citing the contested George W. Bush-Al Gore election, the special envoy for Northern Ireland noted that we managed to get through that.

“American elections can be a sloppy, ugly thing but it’s sort of like making law which we describe as making sausage: No one wants to see it happen but you enjoy the end product,” he added.

With concerns about election shenanigans in several key states running rampant, and Democrats already overtaking the president’s lead in Georgia and closing in on the key state of Pennsylvania, and counting continuing three days after the election, Trump addressed the counting process Thursday at a press conference.

“If you count the legal votes, I easily win,” Trump said. “If you count the illegal votes, they can try to steal the election from us. If you count the votes that came in late, we’re looking to them very strongly, but a lot of votes came in late.”

Millions of unsolicited mail-in ballots flooded the playing field in many states, while others moved to extend the deadline to receive these ballots well past Election Day.

“It’s a corrupt system and it makes people corrupt,” the president said. “Even if they aren’t by nature, but they become corrupt. It’s too easy.”

“Our goal is to defend the integrity of the election,” Trump added. “We’ll not allow the corruption to steal such an important election or any election for that matter. Our goal is to defend the integrity of the election. We will not allow the corruption to steal such an important election, or any election for that manner.”

One thing is certain, with the media all-in on dispelling any notion of impropriety, the Democratic Party has carte blanche to do what’s necessary to find the votes to prevail.
