Wow, talk about a power move by Donald Trump.
This is a little insulting to the rest of the Republican candidates making a run at 2024, but the truth doesn't care about their feelings.
Despite not attending the first Republican debate and already having confirmed he'll be missing the second one, Trump is trouncing every single other GOP candidate in terms of popularity.
As a result, Trump is already ready to look past them all and start focusing on his ultimate goal:
Winning the general election in 2024.
You can call it cocky if you want, but there is simply no way to get around the truth.
Trump is the most popular presidential candidate on the Republican side, and it's not even close. People appear ready to follow him whether he ever shows up at the debates or not.
Ron DeSantis, Nikki Haley, and Vivek Ramaswamy will probably never even get a fair chance.
That's just what Trump wants.
It's important to share the news to spread the truth. Most people won't.
