Anti-Trump Republicans use classic Reagan speech to bash presidentPosted by Josh Taylor / July 9, 2020
In the 1980s, Ronald Reagan gave what has a become a classic, now called the City on a Hill speech. Modern day Republicans are turning that ad against Trump:

This is the latest in a series of brutal anti-Trump ads sponsored by his fellow Republicans. That ad, run by the Lincoln Project, a group of anti-Trump Republicans, is a real doozy . 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.
