Former GOP Rep. Charlie Dent to Republicans Running in 2022: Trump Can Only Hurt You [VIDEO]

Donald Trump angry over Parkinsons diagnosis

Donald Trump spends an awful lot of time talking about how popular he is. And much of the GOP seems to buy it. The few Republicans who have been willing to speak out against Trump have been removed from positions of leaderships and faced threats of primary opponents.

The 2021 midterms did a good job of showing what an anchor Trump is. Glenn Youngkin was able to become the governor of Virginia largely by running away from Trump. Former GOP Rep. Charlie Dent says other Republicans should follow this strategy in 2022.

Dent made the comments during a Saturday morning appearance on CNN. He told Christi Paul and Boris Sanchez, “to my Republican friends, I say 2020 and 2021 were very good years for Republican candidates who were not named Donald Trump. What part of Donald Trump’s unpopularity aren’t they seeing here.”

The former Pennsylvania Rep. continued:

“You look at what Glenn Youngkin just did in Virginia, where he clearly distanced himself from Donald Trump. And Republicans shouldn’t delude themselves either. The reason why they’re probably going to have a decent year in 2022 is because of President Joe Biden’s sinking approval rating — that’s it. Now, to the extent they can make the election about Biden and the Democrats, all the better. To the extent Donald Trump injects himself into the conversation, that will only hurt Republicans. So Republicans are better off without Donald Trump more so than with him by far.”
