Bret Stephens, who is a prominent Never Trumper, argues in a New York Times article that Donald Trump would be a strong 2024 candidate due to his understanding of key issues, such as immigration and the public’s declining trust in institutions.

Stephens acknowledges that many voters may remember Trump’s first term favorably, citing economic factors like wage growth.

Despite his support for Biden, Stephens’ perspective has sparked controversy due to his departure from the globalist viewpoint for which he’s known. (Trending: Trump Responds To Biden’s Bombing In Yemen)

“You can’t defeat an opponent if you refuse to understand what makes him formidable [and] too many people, especially progressives, fail to think deeply about the enduring sources of his appeal,” wrote Stephens.

“Arguably the single most important geopolitical fact of the century is the mass migration of people from south to north and east to west, causing tectonic demographic, cultural, economic and ultimately political shifts. Trump understood this from the start of his presidential candidacy in 2015,” he continued.

“Enforcing control at the border — whether through a wall, a fence or some other mechanism — isn’t racism,” explained Stephens.

“It’s a basic requirement of statehood and peoplehood, which any nation has an obligation to protect and cherish,” said Stephens.

Stephens wrote, “Far too little has changed since then … If anything, Trump’s thesis may be truer today than it was the first time he ran on it.”

“We should be more honest with ourselves and admit that those institutions did their own work in squandering, through partisanship or incompetence, the esteem in which they had once been widely held,” encouraged the columnist.

“Brokenness has become the defining feature of much of American life: broken families, broken public schools, broken small towns and inner cities, broken universities, broken health care, broken media, broken churches, broken borders, broken government. At best, they have become shells of their former selves. And there’s a palpable sense that the autopilot that America’s institutions and their leaders are on — brain-dead and smug — can’t continue,” insisted Stephens.

Stephens admitted, “Americans have reasons to remember the Trump years as good ones … Wages outpaced inflation, something they have just begun to do under Biden.”

“We’re a country of immigrants — by and for them, too. Americans who don’t get it should get out,” wrote Stephens in 2017.

“The phenomenon of [population] replacement, writ large, is America, and has been from the beginning, sometimes by force, mostly by choice,” he commented in 2022. “What the far right calls ‘replacement’ is better described as renewal,” explained the columnist.
