Republicans grapple with post-Trump future : Just move on. After a lot of time, the Republicans revolted in Washington where Democrats controlled the White House and Congress, adapting to a time of exhaustion, deep uncertainty and internal strife.
Switching to a minority status is always difficult, leading to discussions about who should be blamed for losing the last election. But the process is tense especially as Republicans face deeper questions about what the party stands for without incumbent Donald Trump.
Four years ago, the GOP values were unquestionably tied to the demands of a president who used to undermine democratic institutions and sold the party’s long-term commitment to monetary policy, strong foreign policy and the rule of law with respect and disunity.
The group is now facing a decision as to whether to continue on that path, as many of Trump’s loyal supporters want, or plan a new course.
The government of Maryland Larry Hogan, one of the few Republican-elected officials who has always criticized Trump, has warned President Ronald Reagan that this is a “election time”.
“We have to decide whether we will continue to go under the direction of Donald Trump or we will go back to our roots,” said Hogan, who could be the 2024 White House candidate in the interview.
He also added saying that the party would have been much better if they had cleansed themselves from Donald Trump. He also said that but he don’t think there is any hope that it will ever end.
Whether the party continues is likely to go to what Republicans like Texas Sen Sen Ted Cruz are doing next.
Cruz spent weeks analyzing Trump’s baseless allegations of electoral fraud, which helped fuel deadly violence in the U.S. Capitol. Republican election officials at several battlefields say President Joe Biden is serious about the election.
Trump’s claims have been completely rejected in the courts, including Trump-appointed judges.
Cruz conceded Biden’s victory on Wednesday, but declined to comment on his official offer.
“He won the election. He is the president. I just came out of his anointing, ”Cruz told Biden in an interview.
Looking ahead, Cruz said Trump would remain an important part of the political debate, but also that the Republican Party should move away from the divisive “language and language and rhetoric”.
Cru said that the President Trump will certainly continue to make his views known, and they will continue to have a real impact, but he thinks a progressive world needs practical policies, and that he thinks as a team, they need to do a better job of winning hearts and minds.
After the Capitol riots, a small but well-known group of high-ranking Republicans stood firm against Trump or distanced themselves from him.
A prominent Republican of the Senate, Mitch McConnell, said on the eve of the inauguration that the Trump administration that attacked the Capitol was “offended by the president.”
Even Mike Pence, Trump’s vice president and long-regarded as his most devout artist, skipped Trump’s march to Biden’s inauguration ceremony.
Trump returned Wednesday to his home base in southern Florida, where he kept a small group of former White House aides to work in a two-story guest house on the outskirts of Mar-a-Lago.
In addition to the advisor of the Washington, Trump will be able to reach out to a well-funded political action committee, the Save America PAC, which is likely to win tens of millions of dollars in donations that filled his campaign after his election defeat.
Those close to Trump believe he will lie down next time as he will focus on his next case of prosecuting violence. After that, he is expected to recall, possibly giving interviews to the media and finding a new home on social media after losing his powerful Twitter bull.
While his plans are still developing, Trump is expected to continue his political involvement, including trying to retaliate by backing key challenges to Republicans he believes have insulted him in his last days. He continues to leave the door open for another presidential contest in 2024.
Some friends believe he may be flirting as a candidate for the third election, which could have severely divided the already broken GOP.
Trump has issued a formidable oath when he leaves the White House for the last time as president: “We will be back somehow.”
Many in the GOP’s die-hard then continued to promote conspiracy theories, embracing white nationalism and, above all, respecting Trump’s voice as a gospel.
