The GOP has essentially gone all-in on Donald Trump as their standard-bearer going forward. The issue, however, is that Trump only cares about himself and has no interest in doing what is in the best interests of the party.
Trump is going to attack people he sees as threats, regardless of their party affiliation. And during his speech on Saturday night, the former president went after GOP congresspeople Nancy Mace and Tom Rice.
The 45th president mocked Mace for a video she made where she pleaded for his support in front of the Trump Tower building. “She’s standing in front of Trump Tower in New York; I’m saying can you believe this? It was untruthful, just like everything else she does.”
The former president continued, [Mace] joined the phony narrative about January 6th. She voted to hold Steve Bannon in contempt, which was terrible. She’s totally manipulated by raging Never Trumpers and the radical left Democrats that are poisoning our country. She’s a terrible person, and she has no idea what she’s doing.”

Trump also included Rice in his rant, urging the South Carolina crowd to “dump these grandstanding losers and replace them with two rock-solid, America First champions.”
