David French: Nope, I'm Not Running For President

Writer David French will not be launching an independent run for president. French had previously been put forward as the "Never Trump" alternative candidate by Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol, but has decided against an official run.

According to French, the timing and circumstances were just not quite right for a presidential run.

But given the timing, the best chance for success goes to a person who either is extraordinarily wealthy (or has immediate access to extraordinary wealth) or is a transformational political talent. I’m grateful for the opportunity to serve my country, and I thank God for the successes I’ve had as a lawyer and a writer, but it is plain to me that I’m not the right person for this effort.

I believe with all my heart that there is an American movement ready to both resist the corruption, decadence, and dishonesty of the American elite and restore the promise of the American Dream. But that movement may not emerge for some time, and it might emerge only after further heartache and pain.
