Donald Trump is at conflict with Republicans

USA: Donald Trump is once again at war with his own party, angrily denouncing potential rivals, fueling old resentments, and rebelling against a former president who came to victory six years ago working like. It is only a matter of days before he is expected to announce his intention to run for the White House again.

In an effort to fend off any rivals for his party's nomination in 2024, the former one-term president dubbed Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin "Desanctimonious" and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, a moniker with a racist undertone .

It's the same strategy Trump used in both his successful 2016 campaign and his failed 2020 re-election, even though he has long viewed himself as a wrecking ball within the party.

However, it comes at a time when a growing number of Republicans are holding him responsible for his overwhelming performance in Tuesday's congressional elections and when Trump may need to win over rather than alienate party members .

Former Republican leaders such as Chris Christie and Paul Ryan, as well as conservative media outlets such as Fox News Channel and The Wall Street Journal, have criticized Trump for interfering in the midterm elections, claiming that his actions increased Democratic turnout. and alienated independent voters.

Trump accused the media of favoring DeSantis to prevent him from being nominated, without providing any evidence.
Trump's longtime adviser Jason Miller predicted Friday that he would make his decision to run for office again next week.

Trump will announce his candidacy for president on Tuesday, Miller informed former Trump aide Steve Bannon on his popular "War Room" podcast.
It will be a very sophisticated, well-crafted announcement, he continued.

As he did in 2016 with rivals like Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio, Trump has a history of belittling his opponents with derisive nicknames and mobilizing his supporters against them.

To protect his relationship with Trump, a Republican strategist from Florida, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said, "He traps people and lets his supporters take him down."

While acknowledging that the political landscape has changed significantly since 2016, those close to Trump are attempting to soften his image out of concern that his fiery rhetoric may alienate many voters. who may support his policies but yearn for some normalcy. a senior adviser told Reuters.

Additionally, efforts are underway to persuade Trump to put an end to his past complaints. "The 2016 campaign focused on offering solutions to issues and presenting ideas.

We are trying to persuade them to discuss the future. We will wait and see, the advisory said. Some of Trump's allies are already attempting to publicly show their loyalty as the party splits.

Despite the fact that he has not yet announced his candidacy and the first party primary is more than a year away, Alice Stefanik, the third-ranking Republican in the US House of Representatives, endorsed him on Friday.

Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia said on Twitter that successful Republican governors should remain in their current positions and refrain from seeking the presidency.

DeSantis is said to be seriously considering running for president, but neither he nor Youngkin, the first-term governor who was re-elected Tuesday, has made any announcements about it.

Trump referred to Youngqin as "Young Qin" and quipped, "Sounds Chinese, doesn't it?" in a post on his Truth social network on Friday. Yangqin does not speak Chinese.

The previous day, Trump posted a lengthy scathing post about DeSantis in which he once again referred to him as Ron "Desanctimonius" and claimed that he owed Trump his political success.

Given his focus on the state's recovery from Hurricane Ian and policy issues, the governor will hesitate to respond directly, according to two Florida Republicans close to DeSantis.

DeSantis will highlight how his governing style differs from Trump's more combative and less policy-focused approach, he claimed, by staying off the field for the time being.

Trump's opening presidential announcement, scheduled for Tuesday, could be seen as an attempt to quell the competition before it begins, but growing criticism of the party suggests that will not be the case.
