Conservative media tycoon Rupert Murdoch has reportedly made clear to Donald Trump in recent days that he will not support his reelection bid – a major blow to the former president’s odds of winning the Republican nomination.
According to Sky News, Murdoch spoke to Trump following the midterm elections and told him that the disappointing results for Republicans has put an end to Trump’s political career.
“We have been clear with Donald. There have been conversations between them during which Rupert made it clear to Donald that we cannot back another run for the White House,” a senior News Corp source said.
In fact, Murdoch is so anti-Trump now that he’s open to supporting a Democrat in 2024 if Trump wins the GOP nomination.
“The source added that the Murdochs would “likely remain neutral” if Joe Biden stands against Mr Trump in 2024. However, the family is open to backing another Democrat candidate should Mr Biden step aside and Mr Trump be on the Republican ticket,” Sky reported.
“The source said: ‘If it turns out to be Donald versus Joe then it may be that we just cover the race without any leanings one way or the other.’
“However, the source added that if the Democrats could “find a credible candidate to take Joe’s place” then the Murdoch media empire could back the Democrats against Mr Trump “for the sake of stability and a sensible White House”’.”
However, the source added that it would take a lot for the Murdochs to support a Democratic candidate.
“A lot of things would have to fall into place for that to happen,” the source said. “Joe would not be running, and the Democrats would have to have a new strong candidate. And that is not Kamala [Vice-President Harris]. But I don’t believe the Democrats know who could replace Joe yet so he may well go for a second term, especially given his relative success in the midterms.”

Him?! shkoyach… He already said that 6 years ago…
He wants to become CNN and decide from up there what us little guys think – go right ahead.
A stupid business decision it will surely be…
Another lifted story from the leftist media. Keep it up. Don’t bother doing your homework.
How come the story didn’t mention that approximately 90% of the candidates President Trump endorsed and campaign for in the 2022 election, were elected? If he was so bad for the party, then it should have been 90% the other way. 90% WERE ELECTED OR REELECTED. Think about that. Of course this story doesn’t bother mentioning it because it goes against everything that they want you to know.
The problem right now that many of us have with Governor Ron DeSantis, is that he’s been hanging around with the snake in the grass piece of garbage Paul Ryan. Remember that would be the same Paul Ryan who was Speaker of the House for the first two years of the Trump presidency when a lot more could have and should have been done to get the president’s agenda through. Paul Ryan wasn’t interested in it going through because Paul Ryan is really part of the Washington swamp and the president doesn’t like swamp creatures .
Thank you President Trump for beginning to show us that there are swamp creatures in Washington, all that bureaucrat mess that’s behind the scenes thinking that they run the show. Within half of the alleged wrongdoings that you’ve been accused of are because of these bureaucrats who think that they are the ones that control the law of the country and not the president.
That doesn’t sound very journalistic of Mr. Murdoch.
And anyone else notice how YWN loves posting headlines which try and enrage its readership? YWN needs to calm down…relax….we didn’t realize that YWN has trump derangement syndrome…its going to be okay take a chillpill…come on man!
Why are we Ultra Orthodox Jews so excited about Trump. He’s a wild animal and acted this way for the last year! Leolom Yehei Odom, No?
I think there’s a proper way to say this – “You’re fired!”
More seriously, Trump has done an excellent job convincing people that he’s the only one that push conservative goals, he’s the only one not part of the swamp, blah blah blah. It’s not true! If Pence or DeSantis or whoever other conservative was up there, they would also nominate conservative judges, they would also work towards conservative goals, etc. They just wouldn’t be the vulgar, impulsive, self-centered, petulant, vengeful bully that Trump is. A much better America even for staunch conservatives.

Doesn’t matter that 90% of Trump’s candidates won because the vast majority of those were safe Republican races. Trump could’ve endorsed a horse and it would have won as long as it had an R next to it on the ballot.
What matters is that the VAST MAJORITY of Trump’s candidates lost in competitive or even lean R races. Trump has a stranglehold on the GOP base, that no one denies. But the results from the midterms make it obvious that Trump and Trumpism is poisonous toward moderate Republicans and swing voters
