Donald Trump is gearing up to run for President in 2024.
But not everyone who supported Trump before may still be in the fold.
And Donald Trump is worried this big star at Fox News is going to turn on him.
The battle lines are being drawn at Fox News Channel over a potential 2024 Trump Presidential campaign.
And Trump himself is reportedly keeping score by dividing up the big name primetime stars into camps that either support or oppose him.
According to a report in Rolling Stone, Trump believes Sean Hannity will support his re-election campaign while Lauran Ingraham could back a challenger like Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
Rolling Stone reported:
In private discussions, Trump has cataloged which major on-air personalities, hosts, and shows he views as steadfastly all-in “for Trump,” which ones he sees as possibly defecting, and which he deems “against Trump.” For instance, Trump views Sean Hannity as firmly in his column, and has expressed some doubt about which camp Laura Ingraham might end up in come 2024.
Over the past year, Ingraham has given hints that she is not yet on board with Trump running for re-election.
In an interview with Northern Virginia Magazine, Ingraham praised Trump’s pro-working class agenda of securing the border, standing up to Communist China, and negotiating fair trade deals, while at the same time saying she was not yet ready to commit to voting for him in 2024.
“I’m not saying I’m there for him yet,” Ingraham began. “But I think whether he runs or not-I mean, his policies worked,” she added. “Trump’s blueprint for a forward-looking, optimistic set of pro-American policies – that blueprint, without a doubt, is winning.”
In an interview with former Senior White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway in April, Ingraham bemoaned the fact that Sean Hannity pushed Trump to endorse leftist Senate candidate Dr. Oz.
Ingraham – as well as many other conservatives – thought Trump made a mistake since Dr. Oz supported red flag confiscation laws, abortion on demand, and transgender surgeries for minor children.
“Hannity, I think, I believe endorsed Oz and I think that’s, you know, that’s probably not inconsequential for President Trump,” Ingraham told Conway. “You wouldn’t answer the question whether it was a mistake. I think it was a mistake to endorse Oz. I’ll say it. I’m not afraid to say it. It was a mistake to endorse Oz.”
Ingraham also recently traveled to Florida to host a town hall event with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
Ingraham was one of the earliest backers of Trump and his Make America Great Again agenda.
But will Trump have the united support of Fox’s primetime lineup in 2024, or do some – like Ingraham – believe Governor DeSantis is the best shot to win while getting the same Trumpian policies and willingness to fight?
