From the first Never Trumpers in 2016, there have always been Republicans speaking out against Donald Trump. The numbers have only increased during the last four years, and with the November 3rd Presidential election looming, more and more are making themselves heard as they fear what another four years might do to the country.
Repair Republic, an offshoot of the security and intelligence-driven Defending Democracy Together project, announced its formation on Thursday, with members including former Trump insiders like former Press Secretary Anthony Scaramucci; Michael Steele, the former head of the RNC; former DHS Chief of Staff Miles Taylor; TV commentator Tara Setmayer, and former US Presidential candidate Evan McMullin, among others.

The site’s mission statement doesn’t mince words:
“Weak leaders, nationwide discord, and a confluence of crises are threatening the country’s greatness.
Now is the time to speak up.
The Republican Political Alliance for Integrity and Reform (REPAIR) is committed to restoring principled leadership in Washington, refocusing the Republican Party’s priorities, and repairing the American republic.
The Republican Political Alliance for Integrity and Reform (REPAIR) is a group of former senior U.S. government officials and conservatives—including from the Reagan, Bush 41, Bush 43, and Trump administrations—who are committed to advancing a more hopeful vision of America’s future.
The Alliance brings together thought leaders and stakeholders to focus on a return to principles-based governing in the post-Trump era. REPAIR also cultivates and promotes diverse viewpoints across the conservative spectrum on issues ranging from national security and foreign policy to social unrest and democratic institutions.”
Repair Republic is also behind the new ad from former Mike Pence aide Olivia Troye, whose explosive revelations regarding the Trump administration’s response to the coronavirus set off shockwaves Thursday.
After a while she couldn't look herself in the mirror because no matter what she did, the President would undermine it and make Americans less safe.
