President Trump is ready to go to war, and any 2024 hopefuls will be taking on the 45th president at their own risk, according to multiple media reports.

President Trump is ready to come out swinging, according to The Daily Beast:

Republican challengers, be warned. Former President Donald Trump is expected to “come out swinging” with his 2024 presidential announcement expected next week, an advisor told The Daily Beast.

Trump wanted to launch his presidential campaign on the night before the election, but aides persuaded him to wait. Since then, he has promised a “big announcement” on Tuesday, November 15, though his campaign advisor has encouraged him to wait until after the Georgia runoffs in December, Business Insider previously reported.

“I would expect Trump to come out swinging Tuesday,” an unnamed advisor familiar with the matter told The Daily Beast. “People forget that he eviscerated 16 Republicans in 2016 and has kept the entire party in check through fear since then.”

This is WAR, says the same adviser:

“I’m sure there will be challengers,” this adviser continued. “But they better show up ready for war, because nothing is off the table.”

Lara, President Trump’s daughter-in-law and close advisor, threw a brushback pitch at Ron DeSantis:

Lara Trump on Sunday warned Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis not to run against her father-in-law, former President Donald Trump, in the 2024 Republican presidential primary.

‘I think he’s a smart enough guy to know that it would be great to have all of the support of all of this party, of the “America First,” MAGA movement, whatever you want to call it, fully behind him in 2028, then possibly fracturing it in 2024,’ Trump said on Sky News Australia. ‘I can tell you those primaries get very messy and very raw.’

According to Maggie Haberman, Trump is ready to “burn it all down”:

The Republican Party may be girding for a brutal internal war amid the wreckage of its midterm elections — and Donald Trump is ready to “burn it all down” if he can’t keep his grip on the GOP, predicts New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman.

One thing appears clear: the “Great MAGA King” is not ready to relinquish the throne.
