President Donald Trump just received some incredible news. It is not over and Democrats are terrified — they never expected this to happen.
“What’s very striking is that President Trump still has such enormous reach in the party that nobody can fight him,” said former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich (R-GA) on New York City AM 970 radio.
Gingrich continued: “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.” The former House Speaker couldn’t be more right, of course.
Trump created a movement and it hasn’t gone away just because he is no longer president. In fact, if you listen to Trump himself, he has big plans — including using his political action committee to support America First candidates.
His PAC, Save America, boasts a $30 million war chest and you can bet he will be getting involved in the 2022 midterm elections. Trump may even wade into Republican congressional primaries.
