This week, aspirants for the presidency in 2024 will reportedly participate in a discussion hosted by Tucker Carlson in Iowa. But the pack’s leader has made the decision to stay out of it.
At the FAMiLY Leadership Summit in Des Moines on Friday, Carlson will speak with six contenders for the presidency.
The former Fox News anchor will be joined by Republican governors Ron DeSantis of Florida, Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina, former vice president Mike Pence, businessman Vivek Ramaswamy, and former governors Nikki Haley and Asa Hutchinson.
Donald Trump, though, is noticeably absent from the list.
Trump won’t be attending, according to Bob Vander Plaats, president and CEO of the Family Leader, which is organizing the discussion alongside Blaze Media. He made this statement on Tuesday.
But this weekend, Carlson will also attend a gathering where Trump will make an appearance: the Turning Point Action conference in Florida.
