Former White House trade adviser Peter Navarro is confident that former President Donald Trump “will be on the ballot in 2024.”
During an interview on Fox News, Navarro was asked about Trump’s speech on CPAC on Sunday and said that Trump is preparing to “clean up” his house internally and externally in preparation for the next presidential election.
“He’s got to take out the traditional Republican trash — McConnell, Cheney, and McCarthy. It’s got to be a revolution,” Navarro said.
Navarro continued, “He’s also got to get his own house in order in preparation for 2024. Whether he announces today or not, he will be on the ballot in 2024.”
“If he’s not listening to folks like [Steve] Bannon, [David] Bossie and Corey Lewandowski and Steve Cortes on the outside — Bernie Marcus on the outside — and [Dan] Scavino and [John] McCentee on in the inside, he’s listening to the wrong people.”
“He’s got to clean up what’s going on internally to make sure he’s got a solid message going forward, and externally he’s got to come after those traditional globalists, elitist Republicans who love open borders and love free trade,” Navarro concluded. Video Below
It may be nearly four years until the 2024 presidential election, but political handicappers are already sizing up the field for the Republican Party.
What will Trump do going forward? Will President Joe Biden even make it four years.

According to a Washington Times/CPAC poll, over 95% of respondents approved of the job that Trump did as president.
More than two-thirds of respondents said that they wanted Trump to run again, while 15% said they did not, and 17% were unsure.
A staggering 95% of respondents want the GOP to continue pursuing the policies of Trump.
If Trump were to run for president again, 55% of respondents said they would vote for him.

According to a new poll from YouGov/Economist, Trump’s popularity is +75 with Republicans and has continued to soar.
The poll found his favorability rating was 87 percent among GOP members, while just 12 percent viewed the 45th president unfavorably.
Trump went nuclear on McConnell in a scathing statement on Tuesday night, calling him “a dour, sullen, and unsmiling political hack.”
In a statement released by his “Save America” PAC. Trump said, “The Republican Party can never again be respected or strong with political “leaders” like Sen. Mitch McConnell at its helm.”
“Mitch is a dour, sullen, and unsmiling political hack, and if Republican Senators are going to stay with him, they will not win again. He will never do what needs to be done, or what is right for our Country,” Trump added.
The former president also vowing to support primary challengers in upcoming elections.
“Where necessary and appropriate, I will back primary rivals who espouse Making America Great Again and our policy of America First. We want brilliant, strong, thoughtful, and compassionate leadership,” Trump said.
