The resolution presented by David Bossie would have been taken up for a vote the following week by the Republican National Committee (RNC).
According to REUTERS, a Trump ally, David Bossie presented a draft resolution aimed at declaring former President Donald Trump as the GOP’s presumptive nominee for the 2024 general election. However, the January 25th resolution was quickly withdrawn hours after Trump opposed the measure on Truth social.
On a January 25th Truth Social post, Former President Trump stated, “While I greatly appreciate the Republican National Committee (RNC) wanting to make me their PRESUMPTIVE NOMINEE, and while they have far more votes than necessary to do it, I feel, for the sake of PARTY UNITY, that they should NOT go forward with this plan, but that I should do it the “Old Fashioned” way, and finish the process off AT THE BALLOT BOX. Thank you to the RNC for the Respect and Devotion you have shown me! TRUMP2024.”
David Bossie is an RNC committee member and was the Deputy campaign manager for the Trump Presidential campaign in 2016. Bossie has been the President and Chairman of the advocacy group Citizens United, who on January 31st filed a FOIA lawsuit against the State and Defense Departments for records pertaining to alleged Iranian influence in the Biden Administration.
The resolution presented by David Bossie would have been taken up for a vote the following week by the Republican National Committee (RNC). The resolution would have been considered by the Resolutions Committee and if approved, RNC members would have taken it up at their annual meeting. According to Fox News, a copy of the resolution was obtained by Fox News Digital, but was later retired after Trump’s opposition to it.
Meanwhile, Nikki Haley’s campaign continues to feel mounting pressure to exit the race by other Republican leaders supporting the former President. In a statement by Nikki Halye’s campaign, they emphasized, “Who cares what the RNC says? We’ll let millions of Republican voters across the country decide who should be our party’s nominee, not a bunch of Washington insiders,“
However, the campaign was hit with a hard blow when 2 of her biggest donors turned off the taps that were funding Haley’s campaign. Nonetheless, Nikki Haley was able to raise another $1 million after this blow, indicating that for the foreseeable future, Trump will have to continue to face off against Nikki Haley.
Trump supporters argue that the time and resources could be put to better use letting Trump go against President Biden. Regardless, Trumps campaign will have to deal with multiple fronts until and if Halye’s campaign drops out of the race.
