Former GOP Officials May Create Anti-Trump Party

Could the Republican Party split into two factions with those factions defined by whether or not the members support former President Donald Trump? Given the following report exclusive to Reuters, that seems to be a growing possibility.

~~~~~~~~~~

Dozens of former Republican officials, who view the party as unwilling to stand up to former President Donald Trump and his attempts to undermine U.S. democracy, are in talks to form a center-right breakaway party, four people involved in the discussions told Reuters.

“The early stage discussions include former elected Republicans, former officials in the Republican administrations of Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, George W. Bush and Trump, ex-Republican ambassadors and Republican strategists, the people involved say.

“More than 120 of them held a Zoom call last Friday to discuss the breakaway group, which would run on a platform of “principled conservatism,” including adherence to the Constitution and the rule of law – ideas those involved say have been trashed by Trump.

“The plan would be to run candidates in some races but also to endorse center-right candidates in others, be they Republicans, independents or Democrats, the people say.”

Please share your thoughts in the comment section. Should Republicans who oppose Trump leave the Republican Party and form their own political party? What would that mean for the future of the GOP?

    Trump SHOULD form a separate party. 75 MILLION voters are NOT wrong! The democrat party has been hijacked by left wing progressive nut cases who are determined to turn America COMMUNIST. Since China owns the whole Biden family, Joe HAS to do what Xi Jinping tells him to do. Biden was NOT elected. He was “appointed” by the democrat party. There is NO WAY possible for him or anybody else to win an election, hiding in a freekin’ basement during the whole election. Trump was the goose who laid the golden eggs. Biden is destroying EVERYTHING that TRUMP did to rebuild America, so plan to stand in line at soup kitchens real soon. I hear you can buy a nice house in Guatemala, Honduras, & El Salvador real cheap, cause that’s how America will look after Biden/Harris are finished with your tax $$$$$. Sell what’s left of your house, give up your American citizenship, live in Guatemala a few years and come back in a caravan and claim asylum and get all the free stuff that the present caravans are receiving.

      The problem with creating a new party from the Republican party is that it splits the GOP and currently the Democrat party is larger than the Republican party if not in actual people definitely in money since they have been ripping off this country for years!
      If the Republican party split in two there will never be another Republican elected in any office! That is why Trump opted not to peel off and start a new party but instead work hard with congressional Republicans to take back the house and senate in 2022. A separation of the party would make both halves as insignificant a threat to the power as any of the other parties that arise.
      Look at the independent party or the green party how many representatives from either of them are in the house? less than 5? In actuality what the Republicans need to do is (and this is painful to say but it’s true!) take a lesson from the Dems and learn to put aside petty differences for the good of their party!
      It is obvious when votes take place in congress almost every time there are at least a few Republicans that cross the aisle and vote with the Dems, but it is a very rare occasion when a dem crosses to the right! And because of this and the very small lead in numbers that they have votes always are won by the dems!
      It is like being a member of a family, there is always going to be a conflict that normal, and the love keeps it from getting too far out of line, but when an attack on a member of the family happens two brothers that were just in a fistfight will stand back to back to defend their own! The Republican party must adopt this practice if they have any hope of surviving!

        The original statements about Trump “undermining” and “trashing” our democracy are DAMN LIES! He is the GREATEST PRESIDENT of our lifetimes! Just look at his accomplishments in just 4 years. We CANNOT let emotions split the GOP and thereby give the radical LEFTIST Democrats permanent power. Trump is wise enough to know this and those weak, “Democrat Lite” RINOs damn well better know it too. Enough Trump America-First Republicans will sweep into Congress in 2022 and start pulling us back out of the Swamp. Just wait.

    Tell Donald Trump to go to where he will be most popular.
    Tell him to go to Hell.

God will REIGN and you ALL will be held accountable for your laziness and wasteful spending. Form your own part who cares!! President Trump will stomp you lazy asses too
