"As far as whether the president is going to run again, he seems to be teasing that he may, if he does he can count on me," Stone said. "I will be there. But if he does not, four years is a very long time, even in American politics."
"If he elects not to run, well, then, those of us who support his agenda, the America First agenda, we need to have a back-up candidate," he said. "We need to have someone who can win a general election on the same platform that Donald Trump won on."
Stone's response to Malzberg when asked who he would support if Trump doesn't run: "Congressman Matt Gaetz from Florida. A scrapper. A brawler."
