(bigleaguepolitics)President Donald Trump is considering ditching the Republican Party and starting a new “Patriot Party” that will actually put America first.
The Wall Street Journal has reported that Trump has talked to “several aides and other people close to him” about the possibility of creating a new political party.
Trump understands that he commands a constituency of Americans who previously had little interest in politics. He brought these folks into the Republican Party like nobody else ever could, and he could use them as the core of his new political party.
Big League Politics has reported on how Republican leaders like Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) have stabbed President Trump in the back, blaming him for violence that took place in the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6:
Outgoing Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell gave one final speech attacking President Donald Trump before the latter leaves office Wednesday. He repeated the false claim that Trump incited protesters to storm the Capitol building and said that Congress will “move forward” to continue addressing the serious challenges facing the United States.
A transcript of McConnell’s remarks is as follows:
“The last time the Senate convened, we had just reclaimed the Capitol from violent criminals who tried to stop Congress from doing our duty. The mob was fed lies. They were provoked by the president and other powerful people. And they tried to use fear and violence to stop a specific proceeding of the first branch of the federal government which they did not like. But we pressed on. We stood together and said an angry mob would not get veto power over the rule of law in our nation. Not even for one night. We certified the people’s choice for their 46th president.
“Tomorrow, President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Harris will be sworn in. We’ll have a safe and successful inaugural right here on the west front of the Capitol, the space that President Bush 41 called ‘democracy’s front porch.’ And then we’ll move forward. Our work for the American people will continue as it has for more than 230 years. There are serious challenges that our nation needs to continue confronting. But there will also be great and hopeful opportunities for us to seize. Certainly November’s elections did not hand any side a mandate for sweeping ideological change. Americans elected a closely divided Senate, a closely divided House, and a presidential candidate who said he’d represent everyone. So our marching orders from the American people are clear. We’re to have a robust discussion and seek common ground. We are to pursue bipartisan agreement everywhere we can, and check and balance one another respectfully where we must. And through all of this, we must always keep in mind that we’re all Americans, we all love this country, and we’re all in this together.”
The GOP establishment may have given Trump no choice except to start a third party. They are hated by their own constituents for allowing America to be sold out and rolling over for electoral fraud.
