It is unlikely that Susan Collins will support Donald Trump in a potential run for president, she said on Sunday.
It is not likely given the many other qualified candidates that have expressed interest in running. Collins was asked by George Stephanopoulos about a potential Trump run.
The former president has attended political rallies, but he has not committed to running again.
Collins said we are a long way from 2024.
Several Republicans have expressed interest in running for president in 2024.
Collins criticized Trump's recent promises regarding the Capitol insurrection. During his Saturday rally in Texas, Trump said he would consider pardoning those charged in the January 6 insurrection.
I don't think President Trump should have made that pledge. Collins said that the judicial process should continue.
Collins wrote in a Washington Post op-ed that she would not vote for Trump because he did not reflect historical Republican values.
Collins voted to acquit the president in the first impeachment in 2020 and then voted to convict him in the second.
