How come it is so hard for another Republican to run for president in 2020?

I understand why a president serving a term is hard to beat because of popularity but why is it practically impossible? How and why are the primaries
different for the party of a sitting president?

This is the crucial sentence here: “Every incumbent president for four-plus decades who has faced a serious primary opponent was weakened enough to ultimately lose reelection” https://www.apnews.com/5dc0d0509dd2459fa4452b67957f1b1f.

On top of that, Trump was not just sitting back, his arms crossed, during all this time. He has solidified his control over the party, not allowing a serious contender to emerge.
