President Trump is currently in the process of making his list and checking it twice. He’s not worried about who has been naughty or nice, though. His primary concern is making a list of GOP members that have run afoul of our democracy so that he can primary them in the upcoming elections. There are a lot of GOP bigwigs who should be worried about what is coming their way.
Former Vice President Mike Pence is sure to make the list, while Mitch McConnell is also going to end up in the crosshairs of Trump. Both men have laid the blame for the Capitol riots squarely at his feet. Kevin McCarthy also followed suit. These men were all willing to enjoy the Trump gravy train while the getting was good, though.
As soon as they had their opportunity to make him into a scapegoat, they pounced. Credible allegations were made regarding voting fraud in a number of states. Instead of investigating them in full and putting our federal government’s best and brightest to work, they seem content to remain Republicans in name only.
This leaves Trump with precious little recourse. There is speculation that he plans on starting a Patriot Party so that the concerns that are not being addressed can finally be handled. This party would represent the American people who are being left behind by the two main parties. They would also investigate the issues that are taking place with the voting machines.
According to the Daily Mail, the move is being made as a means of keeping Donald Trump protected during the impeachment trial. However, we are casting a sizable amount of doubt on that perspective. Let’s say that Trump does end up being impeached. What Republican party will even be left to salvage after that happens?
It’s a question no one has the answer to but we are sure that the GOP is considering it as we speak. On the other hand, the Republicans are an arrogant bunch who believe that they do not need Trump’s help to win in 2024. Maybe after they are pounded in the midterm elections, they will be willing to change their tunes.
The Daily Mail has more about the latest developments in the world of Trump. “Donald Trump is reportedly moving forward with his plans to create a ‘Patriot Party’ to put pressure on Republicans who oppose him and attempt to head off conviction in his second Senate impeachment trial.
Trump has told people that the third-party threat gives him leverage to prevent Republican senators from voting to convict him during the Senate trial next month, people in his orbit told the Washington Post.
Since President Joe Biden took office, Trump has been ensconced at Mar-a-Lago, remaining publicly cryptic about his plans except to tell a reporter on Friday: ‘We’ll do something, but not just yet.’
But behind closed doors, Trump is already drafting an enemies list of Republicans who opposed his baseless claims of election fraud, instructing aids to prepare primary challenges against them, sources told the Post,” they reported. If we know anything about Trump, it’s that he is not going to allow himself to be silenced any longer.
Will he come back with his own social media platform, his own political party or both? It’s anyone guess at this point but one thing is for certain: there is something brewing at Mar-a-Lago. Trump is not going to go quietly into the night and anyone who expected him to is sure to be let down by what happens next.
It’s going to be a comeback for the ages and we are sure that lots of Republicans are running scared. Once Trump makes his list of enemies and shares it with his base, these GOP members are not going to enjoy the same number of votes that they are currently accustomed to. This is something that they probably never stopped to consider!
