Donald Trump knows he lost the 2020 election. So do Congressional Republicans. Even the Trump family is aware that the Donald got badly beaten by Joe Biden and rejected by the American people.
But despite the results of the election, the Trumps are now taking steps to literally make the GOP the permanent party of Trump, according to CNN, which reports that Donald Trump Jr. and his girlfriend, former Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle, are quickly moving to take over the Republican National Committee (RNC):
“Donald Trump Jr. and Kimberly Guilfoyle are making moves to expand their influence at the Republican National Committee, three GOP sources, including advisers to the President tell CNN. Some sources say they may seek to take over the party structure themselves.
“President Donald Trump’s eldest son and his girlfriend, a Trump campaign fundraiser and former Fox News host, have made it clear to campaign and White House officials they are unhappy with RNC chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, who they view as not having done enough to win a close race.”
“‘Don Jr. and Kimberly have an eye on the RNC, through themselves taking over or somebody close to them taking over,’ a well-placed Republican Party source close to the White House said.”
And the two may just pull off their party coup, because while some in the GOP don’t want to have Trump turn their party into little more than a vehicle for his own self-aggrandizement, they’re also terrified of what would happen if they tried “purging” the family from the the party, which might enrage the president’s political base and wind up leaving Republicans as a permanent minority party, unable to win any elections moving forward.
Republicans and the RNC made a deal with the devil when they let Donald Trump into their party. And now the devil is demanding what’s left of their souls.
