In the first public statement from former President Trump since Mitch McConnell raked him across the coals on the Senate floor following his impeachment trial acquittal, our former president tore into Mitch and gave us some insight into what his future plans are in politics.
It’s pretty evident by now that the hard corps establishment Republicans inside the beltway who pretended to get along with Donald Trump think that the condemnation he is getting inside the beltway and his now failed impeachment trial in the Senate believe the opportunity is right to turn on him in hopes of destroying any possibility of him returning to or being a significant influence in the Republican Party…
Outside the beltway, such things are not so evident, and former President Trump still has more popularity than any of the establishment politicians inside the beltway could ever dream of having and those who thought this was the time to start stabbing people in the back again will no doubt find themselves having a difficult, if not impossible time getting re-elected the next time their name appears on a ballot.
Former President Trump began his statement like this:
“The Republican Party can never again be respected or strong with political ‘leaders’ like Sen. Mitch McConnell at its helm,” Trump says in the statement. “The Democrats and Chuck Schumer play McConnell like a fiddle — they’ve never had it so good — and they want to keep it that way! We know our America First agenda is a winner, not McConnell’s Beltway First agenda or Biden’s America Last.”
Former President Trump goes on to point out how he received many more votes than any Republican candidate in the history of the party and that his endorsement saved many congressional seats essentially making his case for the opening statement…
Does anyone believe that the Republican Party has any chance of maintaining the new broad spectrum of voters Donald Trump brought into the Republican party without Donald Trump on their side? It would be interesting to hear the opinions from as many of you as possible in the comments… I haven’t seen a significant decline in former President Trump’s popularity among the people I meet with and talk to, but it is good to hear from as many people as possible.
