GOP. Rep. Meijer Voted to Impeach Trump, But Now He Says GOP Has No Other Option But to Back Him [VIDEO]

Following the January 6th insurrection, most Republicans opted against holding Donald Trump responsible. Peter Meijer, a freshman congressman from Michigan was one of the exceptions. Meijer was one of 10 GOP Reps. who voted to impeach Trump.

After a year in the House of Representatives, it seems like the congressman is changing his tune. On Sunday, Meijer told Chuck Todd that Republicans have no choice but to back Trump.

During an appearance on Meet the Press, the lawmaker was asked why Republicans still back Trump: He claimed:

“There was no alternative. There was no other path. And given how President Biden, when he was elected into office, said he would be moderate and look for bipartisan solutions. But then after, and frankly, I blame the former president for this, after we lost the two senate seats in Georgia and the Senate flipped, it became an exercise in trying to be an LBJ or FDR style presidency and enact transformational change in the absence of any compelling mandate from the American people to do so.”

Meijer continued by claiming that Trump is popular because of the way Democrats react to him. “So that gave the rallying signal. That created a very steep divide, and at the end of the day, there’s no other option right now in the Republican Party, and that’s a sad testament.”
