I smell a new VP wannabe for the treasonous grifter...

'Big step up from Ron DeSanctimonious!' Trump praises new GOP presidential challenger

Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) entered the 2024 Republican presidential primary on Monday – and his announcement did not receive the usual hostile treatment from "former guy"
...
Good luck to Senator Tim Scott in entering the Republican Presidential Primary Race," Trump wrote on his Truth Social website. "It is rapidly loading up with lots of people, and Tim is a big step up from Ron DeSanctimonious, who is totally unelectable. I got Opportunity Zones done with Tim, a big deal that has been highly successful. Good luck Tim!"

he knows she lost, he knows he lost. He wouldn’t tap a fellow loser when he is portraying himself as a unique type of winner.

It would be a good move for him for Independents, but he's never cared about them previously so doubt he starts now.

He needs to carve out a place so that he make the argument he isn't the Fascist he actually is. And Clarence Thomas is proof that there are African Americans out there gobbling up the hateful rhetoric that people like Putin/trump dishes out.
