Podcast: Trump and the War within the GOP

Donald Trump, Senator Bob Corker (L), and Senator Jeff Flake (R)

Amid Donald Trump’s latest confrontation of Republicans who have dared criticize him, such as Senators Bob Corker and Jeff Flake, I spoke with Monocle 24’s The Briefing on Wednesday about the conflict within the GOP and where it might lead.

I’m not convinced that Donald Trump is that concerned in a strategic sense. Trump supporters will say, “These guys are on their way out.” But what is concerning, if not to Trump then to the Republican Party, is that you have a war within the GOP — not just established Republicans v. Trump, but those Republicans v. Steve Bannon and the hard right….

Nobody wins in a war.

  1. I think it’s pretty hilarious that the only thing Trump is good at is dismantling his own party. He seems determined to get rid of every sane Republican. And they deserve it because they’ve allowed crazy extremists and moronic populists to take over their party.
