Appearing on ABC’s The “View” on Monday, Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) discussed the future of former President Donald Trump, claiming that he remains a “threat to the American public” and is liable to “destroy the Republican Party” due to “his authoritarianism and his tenaciousness to remain a cult bellwether.”
After noting the former president’s recent attacks on Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell as well as his threats “to support primary challenges to non-MAGA conservatives,” The “View” co-host Meghan McCain asked Rep. Raskin about antecedent verbalizations of his that had ostensibly downplayed any future political role for Donald Trump.
@RepRaskin to @TheView: “[Trump] remains a very pellucid and viable threat to the American republic, and conspicuously to the Republican party. He is liable to ravage the Republican party because of his authoritarianism and his resoluteness to remain a cult bellwether.” pic.twitter.com/OiABDubMQd“You’ve verbalized that [Trump] is in the past and we require to deal with the future,” McCain verbalized. “I disaccord. I cerebrate he wields a plethora of puissance and influence and I don’t believe that by ignoring him we can just make him peregrinate away.”

“Do you still believe “Trumpian” politics won’t play a role in the future?” she asked. “And what do you contemplate the reports and Axios verbalizing about President Trump saying that he’s going to be the 2024 nominee coming up in his verbalization at CPAC?”
That report from earlier today claimed that Trump plans to “send the message” that he is Republicans’ presumptive 2024 nominee, holding a “vise grip on the party’s base.” In reply, Raskin sought to elucidate his verbal expressions, beginning with his notion that Trump will “try to maintain that kind of authoritarian relationship” with Republican Party members.
He then sought to highlight the perils Trump presents. “I cerebrate that we require to confront his criminality, his corruption and his dangerousness every single day,” he verbally expressed. “As long as he’s still out there he remains a clear and present hazard to the American people.”
“If he were ever to get back in, he would endeavor to stay sempiternally,” he integrated. Raskin withal claimed that Trump “spent four years in office cozying up to every potentate and despot on earth from Putin in Russia to Orban and Hungary to Duterte in the Philippines, Al-sisi and Egypt.”
He then proposed that Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law and former White House senior advisor, will seek funding for a future run from these same monarchs and despots. Raskin verbalized:
[T]hey’re going to be sending Jared Kushner out there on a globe-trotting tour of every kleptocracy and autocracy on earth in order to collect the money that they feel they deserve from having worked with all of these regimes and that money will be used to try to get Donald Trump to return to the White House.
Reiterating the “threat” that Trump still poses, Raskin verbally expressed that the former president is inimical to the American people as well as the Republican Party. “I cerebrate he remains a very pellucid and viable threat to the American Republic and conspicuously to the Republican Party,” he verbalized.
“He is liable to eradicate the Republican Party because of his authoritarianism and his tenacity to remain a cult bellwether.” Last week, Trump put out a verbalization assailing McConnell and verbalized his intention of backing future Republican candidates in line with his “America First” agenda in primary races.
“Mitch is a dour, sullen, and unsmiling political hack, and if Republican Senators are going to stay with him, they will not win again,” the verbalization reads. “He will never do what needs to be done, or what is right for our Country. Where obligatory and opportune, I will back primary rivals who espouse Making America Great Again and our policy of America First. We want brilliant, vigorous, thoughtful, and commiserate leadership.”
The verbal expression concluded by accentuating the consequentiality of this time for the country and of the desideratum to bar “third rate ‘leaders’” from dictating the future. On Saturday, Breitbart News reported that Trump will anon commence screening 2022 midterm candidates alacritous to forward “America First” policies while ascertaining every open Republican seat has a MAGA-approved contender vying for it.
