J.D. Vance, the author of the New York Times best-seller Hillbilly Elegy and a prominent conservative voice, has endorsed President Donald Trump for a 2024 presidential run. Vance made his endorsement during an appearance on Steve Bannon’s War Room: Pandemic podcast, where he said that Trump is the only Republican who can unify the party and win the White House.
Vance has been a vocal supporter of Trump since the 2016 election, and he has been a frequent guest on the War Room podcast. He was a vocal critic of the Republican Party’s handling of the 2020 election, and he has been a vocal advocate for Trump’s 2020 campaign.
In his endorsement, Vance acknowledged that Trump has made mistakes and has said some controversial things, but he argued that Trump has been a successful president and that he is the only one who can bring the Republican Party together and win in 2024. Vance argued that Trump is the only Republican who can “unify the party, bring back the disaffected, and win the White House.”
Vance said that the Republican Party needs to focus on the issues that Trump campaigned on in 2016, such as immigration, trade, and economic growth. He also argued that the Republican Party needs to “embrace the populism” that Trump has championed.
Vance’s endorsement of Trump for 2024 is significant because it comes from a prominent conservative voice who has been critical of the Republican Party in the past. His endorsement could be a sign of things to come, as more and more Republicans come to terms with the reality that Trump is the only one who can win the White House in 2024.
