WATCH: Republican Congressman Says Donald Trump Lost In 2020 Because Of His Bad Behavior

How did Donald Trump lose in 2020? The former president claims, against all evidence, that the election was “stolen” from him. One Republican leader, however, says that it’s really about Trump’s own behavior.

Donald Trump has spent his short political career boasting that he came in as a businessman, not a politician, and about the other ways he has deviated from expected norms for candidates and elected officials. He’s used his podium — both the literal one and the social media accounts boosted by his presidential notoriety — to verbally attack others, even ending his term by getting booted off several platforms for inciting violence.

In 2020, Trump lost the election, even as his party gained seats — suggesting that a contingent of Republican voters were still supporting right-wing candidates, but specifically chose to reject Trump himself.

A relative few elected Republicans have been wiling to speak out against Trump, whose endorsement is the nearest thing to a golden ticket in his party, and who quickly turns on anyone who fails to show him the support he commands. Representative Don Bacon (R-NE) is one of those few.

He says that “comportment and temperament” are major issues for the former president, and that people were tired of Trump’s drama.

“I think we have to acknowledge that the American people don’t like name-calling. They don’t like the rude behavior. They like folks who treat people respectfully. I think that’s what cost President Trump in 2020…and yes, a democracy respects elections, and our president should have respected the conclusion.”
