(TheRedWire.com) – The Republican National Committee (RNC) is planning to set a new requirement for GOP candidates running in the 2024 presidential election which would block the party’s final nominee from allowing former President Donald Trump to speak on the debate stage. Republicans are currently divided on which nominee they should support for the GOP nomination in the 2024 election.
The RNC is planning on introducing a rule that would promote unity among party members. A source close to the matter had said that the RNC’s Temporary Standing Committee on Presidential Debates is planning on meeting next week in order to discuss the official rules regarding sanctioned debates and adopting resolutions which would require first that they would support the GOP’s nominee in the 2024 presidential race.
This means that former President Trump who had previously announced his presidential campaign in November 2022 might be prevented from participating in the Debate if he did not win the party’s nomination.
The former president has also previously said that he would not commit to backing the presidential nominee. He told the Washington Post that whether or not he would support them would depend on who the nominee was.
There are some Republicans who have also said that they would not back Trump for the GOP presidential nomination.
New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu said he was going to back whoever the nominee was, but also stated that he was certain the nominee would most likely not be Trump.
