We knew that the opportunity was always there, and now it seems as though the difficult year for the Republican Party simply become tougher.
Donald Trump arrived in the GOP (Grand Old Party) like a damaging round, and he brought with him a long-dormant, heavily conventional item of the American challenge in the MAGA movement. Currently, with Trump out of the picture for the time being, the old guard of the Republican Party is searching for a location to call their very own.
“A contingent of former Republican officials are in talks to form a political party that would break away from supporters of former President Trump, Reuters reported on Wednesday.
More than 120 people were on a call on the matter on Friday, including former government employees who worked under the Trump administration, the Reagan administration and both Bush White Houses as well as former GOP members of Congress.
Evan McMullin, former chief policy director for the House Republican Conference, told Reuters that he co-hosted the call with former officials who fear a large faction of the party is unwilling to stand up to Trump.
“Large portions of the Republican Party are radicalizing and threatening American democracy,” McMullin, who ran an anti-Trump independent presidential campaign in 2016, told Reuters. “The party needs to recommit to truth, reason and founding ideals or there clearly needs to be something new.”Source
Over the last numerous years it was believed that the Democratic Party would be the very first to crack, at the very least officially, offered the hefty radical visibility currently entrenched on the left side of the aisle.
