The flood gates have oppened in the media…
The once unthinkable IS occurring….
How will the supposedly party ‘leader’ deal with it?
Republican strategist David Urban, a former Trump adviser, told the Associated Press that the Trump brand is wounded “no matter what the former president says.”
Said Urban: “Of course, he’s going to claim victory, right? The president touts an accomplishment record that includes victories in uncontested races. He can say whatever he wants. But how do people feel in America? I think people feel not great about the Trump brand right now. It’s bad.”
Urban to the New York Times: “Republicans have followed Donald Trump off the side of a cliff.”
“I think Trump’s kind of a drag on our ticket. I think Donald Trump gives us problems, politically. We lost the House, the Senate and the White House in two years when Trump was on the ballot, or in office. I think we just have some Trump hangover. I think he’s a drag on our office, on our races.”
