They are terrified of this.
According to Breitbart News, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich slammed Democrats stating that former President Donald Trump will continue to lead the GOP.
“[W]hat’s very striking is that President Trump still has such enormous reach in the party that nobody can fight him,” Gingrich said. “I mean, you can complain about him. You can criticize him. But McConnell can’t possibly fight Trump. He doesn’t have a big enough base. And it’s also a reminder that there is sort of an establishment insider party that sits around at cocktail parties in Washington. And then there’s this huge country outside of Washington. And that country in 2015, by about two to one, did not like the Republican leadership in the Congress, and that was the forerunner of us ending up with Trump as the presidential nominee.”
He continued, “I think … [Kevin] McCarthy has been much smarter as the House Republican leader to recognize his ability to get the extra seats rests almost entirely on working with Trump — not picking a fight with him.” You can watch a clip of Gingrich’s remarks here.
