Trump attacks Republicans’ sold out, demands that they prevail.
Former President Donald Trump blasted several Republicans as “RINOs, sold out and known losers,” and called for the “America First Republican Patriots” to rank them as primary.
Trump issued an aggressive statement Saturday naming Republicans he wants to see out of office immediately:
Any interest from the good and SMART America First Republican Patriots to run primary campaigns against Representatives Tom Rice, John Katko, Don Bacon, Don Young, Fred Upton (challenge accepted), Andrew Garbarino, Peter Meijer (challenge accepted), David McKinley ( challenge accepted), Nancy Mace, Jaime Herrera Beutler (challenge accepted) and Chris Smith? You will have my backing! González, Kinzinger and Reed already LEFT, they are out of politics, hopefully forever.
Seven of these Republicans, Representatives Katko, Bacon, Young, Upton, Garbarino, McKinley, González, Kinzinger, Reed, and Smith, voted to pass Biden’s $ 1.2 trillion infrastructure bill.
These Republicans were essential for the bill to pass the US House of Representatives. The bill was approved by the House by 228-206 votes.
Representatives Rice, Meijer, and Herrera Beutler were likely on Trump’s list for his vote to impeach the president in January.
Although Representative Mace did not vote on the infrastructure bill or Trump’s impeachment, she United House Democrats in their recent vote to hold former White House aide Steve Bannon in contempt of Congress.
Trump also called out the infamous Never Trumper Representative Liz Cheney (R-WY) in his statement.
“Warmonger Liz Cheney (challenge accepted) is on SKIDS with a 19% approval rating.” Cheney voted to impeach the former president in January and is a member of the Select Committee to Investigate the January 6 Attack on the United States Capitol.
“Saving America begins with saving the Republican Party from the RINOs, the sellouts, and the known losers,” Trump continued. He also called for a senator, Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), to also be elected as the primary.
“In the Senate, the ‘Alaska Disaster’, Lisa Murkowski (challenge accepted), must go away. There is “almost” no one worse, “Trump concluded.

Murkowski, who announced his re-election campaign on Friday, was one of seven Republicans who voted to convict Trump for inciting the January 6 riots in the United States Capitol.
