Following some mainstream right-wing media, five major donors to the Republican Party have now publicly turned their backs on former US President Donald Trump. He declared his candidacy for the 2024 presidential election on Tuesday, but appears to be having a harder time than the previous two times getting a majority of Republicans behind him in the primaries. Let the majority of Americans stand on November 5, 2024.

a look. Donald Trump has announced that he is running for president in 2024. The energy and enthusiasm are not spot on.
Media mogul and billionaire Rupert Murdoch made it clear last week that he would not support Trump’s new candidacy. Murdoch has several major right-wing media outlets in his portfolio, such as Fox News and the New York Post, which have consistently played the Trump card in recent years. But in recent days they have called him responsible for “one Republican failure after another.”
Five major Republican donors have now turned their backs on Trump. They are calling for new faces who can guide the party into the future.

Ronald Lauder, the billionaire heir to the Estée Lauder fortune, also said he would not invest any money in the Trump campaign. This is what his spokesperson told CNBC.
And billionaires Steve Schwarzman and Thomas Petrify also don’t have cash ready for Trump. At least not Schwarzman in the Republican primary, where he wants to support someone from the next generation. It has not yet been announced who it will be.
Petrify would vote for Trump if he won the Republican nomination, but he hopes that won’t come to pass. “We need a new face,” he told Bloomberg. Trump’s problem is that he has too many flaws. He was never elected. Point.”
