GOP Strategist: Trump Did So Much Damage in His First Georgia Rally That He Won’t Be Invited Back
When won the Republican nomination in 2016, Donald Trump created a number of new Republican voters. And the party would desperately like to keep those voters in future elections. The problem is, however, that keeping those supporters means always keeping Trump happy, even when it’s detrimental to the GOP.
This phenomenon was clearly on display on Saturday night in Valdosta, Georgia. The president hijacked what was meant to be a rally for Republican senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler. According to GOP strategist Susan Del Percio, Trump did so much damage to their election hopes that he won’t be invited back.
Del Percio made the comments during an appearance on Alex Witt’s MSNBC show. She began, “Well, last night there was also a weather storm that moved in, it was called a bomb cyclone and I think that you can probably use that title for what we saw. I mean, Donald Trump was being typical Donald Trump; putting himself above everybody else.”
The GOP consultant continued:
“He doesn’t care what happens to those Senate seats, he only cares about being able to scam millions of Americans who support him out of more money so he can have a bigger PAC to serve himself. This is what it is all about. Now, I’m curious if he will end up doing a second rally because I think that the harm he has done in the first one, and the division he has caused within the Republican Party of Georgia is very significant. I don’t think that he will be asked back.”
