Another day, another RINO!
If President Trump has anything to say about it, The American RINO will soon be an endangered species in politics, and this is welcome news!
People are sick of this perfectly manicured, and mass produced politician.
The kind that does not put America first, but instead puts D.C. special interests, and the deep state before the very people they are supposed to serve.
Murkowski has ALWAYS tried to pick fights with President Trump, yet he has accomplished more in four years than her 20 years in office!
Take a look:
Former President Donald Trump is making official his plans to target Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski, vowing to travel to Alaska to campaign against her ahead of the 2022 midterm elections.
In a statement to POLITICO on Saturday, Trump said: “I will not be endorsing, under any circumstances, the failed candidate from the great State of Alaska, Lisa Murkowski. She represents her state badly and her country even worse. I do not know where other people will be next year, but I know where I will be — in Alaska campaigning against a disloyal and very bad Senator.”
Murkowski, who has held her seat since 2002, has been a longtime critic of the former president and was one of seven Republican senators to vote to convict him in last month’s impeachment trial. She is the only one of the seven to face reelection in 2022.
A Murkowski spokesperson did not respond to a request for comment.
The Hill had more on the story:
The threat marks the latest indication that Trump plans to heavily insert himself into 2022 races across the country.
Republicans predict that Trump will cast himself as a kingmaker in the GOP moving forward as he mulls a 2024 bid of his own. While he’s seen his approval rating nationally dip since the Jan. 6 riot on Capitol Hill, his endorsement is still coveted by Republican candidates eager to endear themselves with a grassroots that overwhelmingly still backs the former president.
In his first endorsements since leaving office, Trump has mostly backed incumbent lawmakers who also enjoy establishment support. However, he’s put sitting lawmakers on notice that he could also fight for their defeats if he believes they have been insufficiently supportive of him or his agenda — with his threat against Murkowski serving as a reminder that incumbency is no protection alone against a Trump challenge.
