Former President Trump is making a lot of headlines lately. It wasn’t too long ago that Trump received massive backlash for having Holocaust deniers Kanye West and Nick Fuentes over for dinner at his Mar-a-Lago residence in Florida.
Then, just earlier this month, Trump went on Truth Social and outrightly stated the Constitution ought to be “terminated” because of how the last presidential election turned out.
This, too, is getting as much pushback — if not more — than the Trump-West-Fuentes dinner in late November.
Though even before both of these incidents transpired, there’s been growing opposition against Trump being the 2024 GOP nominee. Now, a former aide for the Biden White House is weighing in on the odds of Trump winning the nomination, per Breitbart News.
Jen Psaki on Trump and 2024
During a Meet the Press panel, various commentators discussed the odds of Trump being able to pull off the GOP nomination in 2024, despite all the problems and currently collapsing support he faces now.
Former White House press secretary Jen Psaki’s view is that Trump shouldn’t be underestimated. Psaki claimed “sane Republicans” and Democrats alike often make the error of underestimating Trump.

Before warning that Trump holds “evil charisma,” Psaki also pointed out that in order for him to lose the GOP nomination in 2024, a “better alternative” needs to emerge.
Alluding to the growing Republican support for Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis to run for office, Psaki stated DeSantis is either “at his peak” or the “savior” of the GOP.
The former White House press secretary then claimed the process of winning a presidential nomination is long before again reiterating that Trump shouldn’t be underestimated.
A Shifting Tide
Within recent months, the tide definitely appears to be turning, albeit not in a way that’s favorable to Trump. In real time, more and more polls are emerging that show the former president behind DeSantis.
This comes despite Trump announcing his candidacy for the 2024 race just last month. Some have suggested the former president did this to stop other Republicans from potentially running; though this doesn’t seem to have worked.

More Republicans are being vocal about their views that the party needs to move on from Trump. In Florida, government officials are already preparing to remove a measure that would mandate DeSantis resign as governor if he chooses to throw his hat in the ring for 2024.
All of this is happening before 2023 has even arrived. Time will tell whether or not another Republican manages to stop Trump from getting the GOP nomination.
