From the very moment that Donald Trump originally declared his candidacy for president, he has been at war with the Republican establishment. Since he couldn’t even trust his own ostensible party, that made his battles with the Democrats only that much more difficult.
As soon as Trump became president in 2016, the establishment GOP had been working behind the scenes to sabotage him, all the while glad-handing in front of cameras and pretending to be on his side. Every good thing that was ever said about Trump and every apparent piece of teamwork was all a ruse calculated to fool Trump supporters into also supporting RINOs who actually hated them.
When Trump had the election stolen from him, hardly any Republican bothered to defend him.
When his own supporters were set up by a combination of BLM, Antifa, and the Capitol Police and then blamed for a riot, most of the disgusting cowards in the GOP collaborated with the media and its lies.
The number of betrayals that Trump and his supporters have endured at the hands of the GOP is staggering. And yet, these grifters continue trying to trade off Trump’s name and associating themselves with him in order to win support.
Thankfully, Trump himself has had enough and has signaled unmistakably that he refuses to work with these backstabbers any longer. No doubt, the same can be said about millions of his supporters as well.
Trump Distances Himself From RINOs
Of late, there has been yet another war going on between Trump and the GOP establishment, this time a somewhat surreptitious one. The RNC, the bastion of everything horrible and useless about the Republican Party, had been using Trump’s name in all manners of events, advertisements, and so on. Clearly, this was a ploy to rope in Trump’s supporters.
Trump wasn’t having it. Recently, his attorneys issued a cease-and-desist letter to the RNC demanding that they stop trading on Trump’s name. Predictably, the grifters at the RNC refused.
In response, Trump issued yet another statement on the matter on Tuesday, March 9. The statement was somewhat more nuanced but totally clear on Trump’s refusal to have anything to do with the establishment elements of the GOP.
“I fully support the Republican Party and important GOP Committees,” Trump said, “but I do not support RINOs and fools, and it is not their right to use my likeness or image to raise funds. So much money is being raised and completely wasted by people that do not have the GOP’s best interests in mind.”
The RNC appears to have backed down and now pledged to seek his approval before endeavoring to use his name or image for fundraising.
However, the usual gaggle of grifters remains unhappy and insists on projecting onto Trump. The likes of Matt Gorman, former NRCC Communications Director, insist that Trump just wants control when that is precisely what the GOP establishment wants.
Thank goodness that Trump is fighting this. And thank goodness that so many now see these snakes for what they truly are.
