- An unofficial commandment at the Conservative Political Action Conference – thou shalt not dis Donald Trump – was broken Friday by two Republicans who may end up facing off against each other and the former president in the 2024 Republican primary.
- Mike Pompeo, Trump’s former secretary of state and a potential 2024 contender, directly scolded Trump for the $8 trillion added to the national debt during his administration. Pompeo also made more oblique comments that could easily be seen as a swipe against his former boss.
- Announced 2024 candidate Nikki Haley, who served as Trump’s ambassador to the U.N., reminded the crowd at the Trump-loving event that she thought politicians over 75 should be required to take a mental competency test.
- That very clearly applies to President Joe Biden, whom she targeted in her speech, but it also would demand that the 76-year-old former president prove his mental acuity as well.
