Anti-Trump Republicans go after Trump’s affinity for RussiaPosted by Josh Taylor / July 3, 2020
The latest ad by the Lincoln Project, a group of anti-Trump Republicans, just released a doozy of an ad. It’s entirely in Russian, and it attacks Trump’s apparent love for––and deference to––Russia’s president, Vladimir Putin.
The ad does seem to be onto something. According to former administration officials, Trump would become so enraged whenever Russia was mentioned that aides eventually stopped mentioning Russia altogether.
And sources indicate that anti-Trump Republicans are setting their sights on another target. Sources reveal that anti-Trump Republicans are trying to sink the GOP’s chances in Senate races in 2020, which they believe is a necessary move to salvage a party so tainted by Trump that anyone who stinks of him has to go.
Trump is in trouble, and he’s starting to flounder. It’s so noticeable that people are starting worry about how he might react if his poll numbers keep dropping. Some critics thing Trump is preemptively blaming foreign countries for his 2020 loss. He’s also going nuts about voting by mail, because he says it will lead to fraud, but really he know it means he will lose. Other observers––Republican operatives––think Trump might just quit rather than lose, which would effectively screw the GOP. The anti-Trump Republicans would certainly love it, though.
