GOP Begins To Break With Trump As Biden Takes Management Of Election
Republicans begin to break with President Donald Trump after Joe Biden takes the lead in Pennsylvania, Georgia and Nevada as the election resumes on day three.
While President Trump is doing everything possible to anger his grassroots, including mistakenly Some Republicans have declared victory and the railing on Twitter to stop the count. They read the tea leaves and publicly reprimanded the president.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who largely avoided criticizing the president during his tenure, told reporters Wednesday, “Claiming you won the election is different from ending the census.”
According to NBC News, former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, who helped Trump prepare the first presidential debate and intercepted the coronavirus for his efforts, told ABC News that Trump’s claims of fraud and Biden’s stealing vote were unfounded .
“There’s just no basis to make that argument tonight,” Christie said of Trump’s allegations on ABC News. “It just doesn’t exist. All of these votes must be counted that are coming in now.
“You have to let the process run itself before you judge it to be flawed. And by doing this ahead of time, if something goes wrong later, he’s undermined his own credibility, ”Christie continued. “I think it’s a bad strategic choice, it’s a bad political choice, and it’s not the kind of decision you’d expect from someone in the position they hold tonight.”
Trump hosted a gloomy press conference Wednesday night, throwing out everything from baseless allegations to lies, but his words seemed to fall on deaf ears outside of his most loyal followers. Congressman Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) Also reprimanded Trump’s claims and tweeted: “We want every vote to be counted, yes every legal vote (of course). However, if you have legitimate concerns about fraud, bring EVIDENCE and take it to court. STOP the spread of exposed misinformation … This is going to be insane. Texas Republican Will Hurd shared his opinion on Trump’s statements and said on Twitter Thursday, “A seated president who undermines our political process and questions the legitimacy of countless Americans’ voices without evidence is not all dangerous and false, but also undermines the foundation of this nation built on it. Every American should have their votes counted. ”
