Former President Donald Trump came out swinging hard against the Republican Party establishment, call for “No more money for RINOs,” which means Republicans In Name Only.
Trump made the comment in a statement released on Monday by his Save America political action committee, going on to say, “They do nothing but hurt the Republican Party and our great voting base — they will never lead us to Greatness.”
It’s time we all stop supporting establishment hacks who sell our country and our values up the river in order to keep their cushy jobs and get wealthy off the backs of American citizens.
Then, as he has for more than five years, he asked supporters for money. “Send your donation to Save America PAC at DonaldJTrump.com. We will bring it all back stronger than ever before!”
Trump’s comments followed reports over the weekend that his lawyers had sent out cease-and-desist letters to three fundraising entities for the Republican Party — the Republican National Committee (RNC), the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) and the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC), according to Politico.
“Trump was furious that his name has been bandied about by organizations that help Republicans who voted to impeach him — without his permission,” the political website said. “Trump, who made his fortune in licensing, has always been sensitive to how his name has been used to fundraise and support members, even while in office.”
“To set the record straight, there were two reasons the Senate races were lost in Georgia,” Trump stated on Thursday. “First, Republicans did not turn out to vote because they were so angry and disappointed with Georgia Republican leadership and Governor [Brian] Kemp for failing to stand up to Stacey Abrams,” he went on to add.
“Second, Senator Mitch McConnell’s refusal to go above $600 per person on the stimulus check payments when the two Democrat opponents were touting $2,000 per person in ad after ad,” the former president said. “This latter point was used against our Senators and the $2,000 will be approved anyway by the Democrats who bought the Georgia election — and McConnell let them do it!”
I think Trump is right on the money here. RINOs, those who claim to be conservative, but don’t really hold to or promote those values and principles, need to be removed from office during the next election. We need real conservatives to help restore our nation to its foundational roots.
Let’s make that happen.
