kinda true, although tbf, trump now is more preoccupied with claiming he won in 2020 than immigration or trade and at least some republicans seem to find that a compelling cause.

"lol, i understand military logistics quite well, thanks."

I'm guessing that Trump will continue to be preoccupied with 2020 for the rest of his life.

Problem is for the GOP with Trump is that he has an absolute stranglehold on 35-40% of the GOP base. Not enough for a majority because if it is a One vs One scenario in the primary he could lose. However, if there is 3 or more it will almost be assured he'd win the nomination. I'll use the Biden example in 2020, Democrats wisely saw that they would have a contested convention and would have given the GOP what they wanted of craziness. So they got Klobachuer and Buttiegeg to drop out of the race, effectively making it a 1 vs 1 choice and effectively ended the primary before Super Tuesday. If the GOP can do a similar strategy they could avoid a Trump 2024 GOP Ticket. However, does anyone really believe that Cruz, Hawley, Christie, DeSantis, Cotton, Scott, and some others won't run thinking that it should be their turn and that this time it'll be different?

the south still talks about the civil war and they caught hands from the north until they gave up.
