According to reports, South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem told the New York Times last week that she doesn’t believe President Donald J. Trump gives Republicans the “best chance” in 2024.

According to the Times, Noem said narrowing the focus on Trump means the GOP isn’t talking to “every single American.”

“Our job is not just to talk to people who love Trump or hate Trump,” she reportedly said. “Our job is to talk to every single American.”

Noem made the comments while attending the Republican Governor’s Association. Considered by many as a potential running mate or, perhaps even run for President herself, Noem told reporters during her re-election effort in 2022 that she would serve all four years.

In the summer, though she told CBS she wasn’t ruling out a run for President in 2024. And at that time she said if Trump would run for President, she would support him.

Following the Times’ article, Noem called the publication a liar because she said Trump shouldn’t be the only person responsible for Republican messaging.

“What they printed is not what I said. What I said is that every single one of us as Republicans need to be messengers. It’s all of our job,” she said. “President Trump is the only one running for president, the only one who’s been president, he is obviously the leader of our party right now, and he has a responsibility, but we all do too.”
