KEY POINTS

  • Clinton could make a bid for presidency if Republicans regain control of Congress in the 2022 midterm elections
  • Clinton previously warned party members from aligning to progressive policies
  • It is unclear whether Clinton plans to make a bid for the presidency in 2024

A Donald Trump versus Hillary Clinton rematch may likely happen in the 2024 presidential election, a former top adviser suggested Sunday. 

Dick Morris, who previously served as former President Bill Clinton’s adviser, said he believes Clinton could make a bid for the presidency if Republicans win control of Congress during the 2022 midterm elections. 

“There’s a good chance of it,” Morris told radio show host John Catsimadis, referring to a Hillary-Trump 2024 rematch. ”She has set up a zero-sum game where the worse [Biden] does, the better she does, because she’s positioned herself as the Democratic alternative to Biden. Not just to Biden, but to the extreme left in the Democratic Party.”

Morris also added that Bill could serve as Hillary’s strategist for her 2024 campaign should she make a bid. 

“Knowing the people around her, I believe there is only one person capable of that level of thinking — and that’s her husband, Bill,” the former top adviser said.

Morrison’s prediction comes after Hillary warned Democrats about aligning itself with progressive views and policies and urged her party to reject far-left positions that could isolate segments of the electorate during a recent MSNBC interview.

Clinton also took a shot at the Biden administration and congressional Democrats during the interview, saying the White House cannot be counted on to be “stable and productive.”

Her comments may have referred to the Democrat’s failure to push President Joe Biden’s Build Back Better initiative in Congress, leading Senate Democrats to repeal the legislative filibuster.

While President Biden has previously indicated plans to seek reelection in 2024, his overall approval rating has fallen to 40%. His rating on key issues like the U.S. economy and government spending has also dropped to 38% and 33% respectively, according to an Economist/YouGov poll.

It is still unclear whether Clinton would run for the presidency in 2024. However, a person close to the Clintons previously suggested that the couple is beginning to reenter the political scene and “move the pieces” in their favor. 

Trump has also held off on announcing his plans for 2024 but teased that his supporters will be “very happy” with his decision. The former president is expected to make an official announcement after the end of the 2022 midterm elections.
