Another confrontation between Biden and Trump is the worst possible scenario, according to the governor. He noted that it would be very similar to how Biden got elected in the first place. During the presidential elections, the American people had a choice between Biden and Trump.
In 2024, however, the governor of Arkansas said he would not support Trump. He noted that his behavior was not something the people wanted to see in a president.

Many of the Republicans’ losses in the 2022 midterm elections were attributed to Trump’s performance. Some of these states included Georgia, Pennsylvania, New Hampshire, and Arizona.
Despite the losses that the Republicans suffered in the midterm elections, the governor of Arkansas does not think that the voters’ rejection of the party is a big deal.
The results of the midterm elections indicated that the Republican Party needs a bold agenda, according to the governor of Arkansas. He noted that the party should also have new voices that can articulate its vision for the country.
Several Republicans have already announced their intentions to run for president in 2024. One of these is Ron DeSantis, who is currently maintaining a high favorable rating. Recent polls show that Trump is trailing the Florida governor.
