(trendingpoliticsnews) – In an announcement made on Twitter today, Blaze Media unveiled plans to present the first presidential forum of the 2024 Republican primary season. However, a key figure will be notably absent from the roster of participants – former President Donald Trump.
The event, scheduled for Friday, July 14th, will be steered by the distinguished television personality and political commentator, Tucker Carlson. This marks Carlson’s first major public appearance since his departure from Fox News, who now is primarily focused on his new segment, “Tucker on Twitter.”
Despite Trump’s conspicuous absence, the upcoming forum boasts an impressive lineup of political figures and influencers. Attendees include Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, former Vice President Mike Pence, U.S. Senator Tim Scott, former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy, and former Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson.
