Republicans Think Trump Is Using His Twitter Army To Sabotage The Senate

More News For You

There is no denying that the Republican Party is having some serious internal conflict at the moment, but some within the party are pointing at President Trump as the root cause of the problems.

As Donald Trump ascended to the highest office in the nation, he brought with him the majority of the GOP that have been holding their silence for a long time.  This soon evolved into the MAGA wing of the Republican Party, and their silence was broken.  Conservative candidates suddenly realized the value of these red-hatted voters, and Trump’s brand of politicking was suddenly unavoidable.

But there was a downside to this: Should you find yourself on Trump’s bad side, he would use the force of the MAGA movement to rain down a barrage of tweets on you.

Some within the party now believe that’s exactly what’s happening in Georgia.

Axios co-founder Mike Allen told CNBC on Thursday that some Republicans believe President Donald Trump is hurting the party’s chances in next week’s Georgia Senate runoffs.

“There’s a big strain of thought among Republicans that President Trump is sabotaging this race. He’s done so much to be unhelpful to those candidates,” Allen said on “Squawk Box,” referring to GOP Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue.

“I talk to Republicans and they look at what’s happening, and they say, ’You know, he must be thinking, ‘I want to send a message, If I’m not on the ballot, Republicans are in trouble,’” added Allen, a longtime political reporter in Washington.

President Trump’s team has denied the allegations.

“Keeping a Republican majority in the Senate has been a priority for the President from the beginning,” Trump campaign spokesman Tim Murtaugh said in a statement Thursday to CNBC. “He will be rallying voters to support Senators Perdue and Loeffler and warning that their opponents are leftist extremists who support higher taxes, the job-crushing Green New Deal, and amnesty for 11 million illegal aliens.”

The race in Georgia has been a tight one, with both Democratic candidates holding slight leads over their Republican opponents according to recent polling.
