Former President Donald Trump made a big move to expel “RINOs, sellouts, and known losers” from the GOP. Trump is targeting people who voted in favor of the infrastructure bill. Trump named names and wants other Republicans to challenge them in primaries.
Trump said: “Any interest from good and SMART America First Republican Patriots to run primary campaigns against Representatives Tom Rice, John Katko, Don Bacon, Don Young, Fred Upton (challenge accepted).
“Andrew Garbarino, Peter Meijer (challenge accepted), David McKinley (challenge accepted), Nancy Mace, Jaime Herrera Beutler (challenge accepted) and Chris Smith? You will have my backing! Gonzalez, Kinzinger, and Reed already QUIT.
“They are out of politics, hopefully for good. Warmonger Liz Cheney (challenge accepted) is on the “SKIDS with a 19% approval rating.
“Saving America starts by saving the GOP from RINOs, sellouts, and known losers! In the Senate, the “Disaster from Alaska,” Lisa Murkowski (challenge accepted), must go. There is “almost” nobody worse!”
“Mitch McConnell has stated that he will not go to the signing of the “Non-Infrastructure” Bill (only 11% for real Infrastructure) or, as it is sometimes called, the Elect Democrats in 2022/24 Act.
“It gives Biden and the Democrats a victory just “as they were falling off the cliff. Based on the fact that the Old Crow convinced many Republican Senators to vote for the Bill, greatly jeopardizing their chance of winning re-election, and that he led the way, he should go to the signing and put up with the scorn from Great “Republican Patriots that are already lambasting him.”
From Fox News:
The statement comes after Trump unloaded on the 13 Republicans who voted for the bill during the National Republican Congressional Committee dinner last Monday.
Fox News Digital previously confirmed that Trump delivered a lengthy address slamming the 13 representatives, including Maliotakis, who was present at the dinner.
Malliotakis was “visibly shaken” during the dinner, a New York Post reporter said, citing a source at the dinner.
She is up for her first reelection next year and explained her vote as one that will “modernize our aging roads” and other infrastructure issues across America.
“I cast my vote FOR the bipartisan infrastructure bill and AGAINST advancing the socialist spending spree. For far too long our leaders have failed to modernize our aging roads, highways & bridges, upgrade sewer systems & implement flood resiliency projects,” she tweeted on Nov. 6.
