Donald Trump could be ‘kingmaker’ in new party says expert
The Spectator’s US Editor Freddy Gray and talkRADIO’s Ian Collins discussed the likelihood of Donald Trump running for President in 2024. Mr Gray stated if the former US president is unable to run again he may play kingmaker for one of his children with Ivanka Trump being the current favourite for her father’s backing.
Mr Collins said: “If he can’t hold public office, he can’t stand at the next election in any form.
“So where would that leave his patriot party?”
Mr Gray responded: “I think he would be seen as the kingmaker.
The talkRADIO host asked: “Right so his name is on the ticket but he is not standing himself?”

Mr Gray replied: “It may well be his son or increasingly in speculation at the moment perhaps his daughter.

“I don’t own the Senate seat, it doesn’t belong to me.
