Establishment Republicans are still trying to figure out a way to purge Donald Trump and his voters from the GOP.
Now all hell is breaking loose.
But now Donald Trump gave the Republican Party an ultimatum that could change everything.
Donald Trump recently delivered a cease and desist letter to the Republican National Committee, National Republican Senatorial Campaign Committee, and the National Republican Congressional Campaign Committee to stop using his name and likeness in fundraising appeals.
Trump objected to the fact that the organizations raise money for establishment Republicans from Trump supporters and funnel the money to the likes of Liz Cheney, Adam Kinzinger, Ben Sasse, and other Republicans who supported impeachment.
The national Republican organizations responded that it was impossible to eliminate all references to Donald Trump in fundraising appeals designed to reach Republicans.
Donald Trump shot back with a statement urging grassroots Republicans to stop funding RINOs.
“No more money for RINOs,” Trump’s statement read. “They do nothing but hurt the Republican Party and our great voting base – they will never lead us to greatness.”
Instead, Trump urged his supporters to support his Super PAC that would back America First conservatives in the upcoming election.
“Send your donation to Save America PAC at DonaldJTrump.com,” Trump added. “We will bring it all back stronger than ever before!”
In his speech to CPAC, Donald Trump declared that the GOP was unified around opposing Joe Biden and supporting Donald Trump’s America First Agenda.
Trump said only a handful of disgruntled beltway insiders like Liz Cheney were really causing the problems.
Nearly 75,000,000 Americans voted for Donald Trump in the last election and Trump has always been very protective of his brand.
The former President’s been more than happy to endorse establishment-aligned Republicans like South Carolina Senator Tim Scott.
But few Trump supporters believe that Republicans who voted to remove Donald Trump from office and exile him from the GOP should benefit from the financial contributions of Trump voters.
