Donald Trump gets awful news from Wall Street about his 2024 bid

Former President Donald Trump is on a warpath. He believes he is the only one qualified to be President.

But Donald Trump just got awful news from Wall Street about his 2024 campaign.

Donald Trump is, certainly, by far and away the favorite to win the Republican primary race in 2024, which would set him up for a rematch against incumbent Democrat President Joe Biden.

However, whoever comes out as the primary challenger to him has a real shot at winning the primary race as well. At one point, it seemed as though Ron DeSantis would be the clear alternative to Donald Trump.

Today, though, South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley is surging in the polls and there’s growing buzz that she could beat both Trump and Biden on her way to the White House.

There’s so much buzz, in fact, that reports from Wall Street show that she’s garnering a ton of support business executives that are switching from the Trump train to the Haley bandwaggon.

The Daily Caller News Foundation has reported that the Haley campaign is in regular talks with major business executives, including the JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon.

The Daily Caller News Foundation reports:

As many financiers are seeking an alternative to former President Donald Trump, Haley has reportedly been meeting with Wall Street executives during fundraising events and has held private conversations with left-leaning JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon. Though some argued the former ambassador is merely trying to appeal to a broad base of voters while gaining enough financial backing to go the distance, others voiced concern to the Daily Caller News Foundation over Haley courting members of the “establishment” who promote ideologies like environmental, social and governance (ESG) and diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) while cultivating business interests in China.

This is an interesting approach for Nikki Haley for a few reasons.

Firstly, the conservative voter base that Nikki Haley needs to win over that Trump has commanded for years now is no longer “friendly” with the elite on Wall Street who tend to be disconnected from the average American.

There’s a reason why the song “Rich Men North of Richmond” exploded in popularity earlier this year.

The conservative base no longer wants to be aligned with the big wigs on Wall Street who continue to grow more and more unpopular by the day.

Secondly, it’s clear that Haley is attempting to win this race against Donald Trump and Ron DeSantis by embracing the “establishment candidate” title rather than pushing it off.

Part of what made Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign so successful was that he was a political outsider who had choice words for the political class. Nikki Haley, however, seems to want to embrace the idea that she is the “political class.”

This is evident in the way she has approached the debates as well, insisting on peddling 2000s-era RINO policies from the likes of George Bush and John McCain.

Lastly, this move seems to indicate that she believes she simply needs more campaign cash to be able to take on the heavyweights like Trump and DeSantis.

The DCNF reports that the Nikki Haley campaign is planning a huge $10 million targeted ad-buy for the states of New Hampshire and Iowa leading up to the start of the Republican primary race.

Though, she only raised $8.2 million in the third quarter and only has $11.6 million left in the campaign coffers.

Courting these Wall Street bigwigs may be her way of trying to secure major investments that will allow her to run more and more campaign operations.

Whether this will all work is anyone’s guess. For now, Donald Trump remains the easy favorite for many conservative voters. Time will tell how that shakes out at the ballot box early next year.
