GOP senator calls on Trump to drop out of the 2024 presidential race

During an appearance on CNN this Sunday, Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) said he thinks former President Donald Trump should drop out of the 2024 presidential race.

“I think so,” Cassidy replied on State of the Union when asked if Trump should drop out. “But obviously, that’s up to him. I mean, you’re just asking me my opinion, but he will lose to Joe Biden if you look at the current polls.”

“I’m a Republican. I think any Republican on that stage in Milwaukee will do a better job than Joe Biden. And so I want one of them to win,” Cassidy continued. “If former President Trump ends up getting the nomination, but cannot win a general, that means we’ll have four more years of policies … which I think have been deleterious to our country’s future.”

Cassidy went on to say that he think the indictments against Trump are a “slam dunk.”

“If that is proven, then we may have a candidate for president who has been convicted of a crime,” he said. “I think Joe Biden needs to be replaced, but I don’t think Americans will vote for someone who’s been convicted. So I’m just very sorry about how all of this is playing out.”
