The chairwoman of the Republican National Committee (RNC) says she has no doubt that the GOP is still led by former President Donald Trump. Ronna McDaniel cited Trump fundraising prowess and his popularity with everyday Americans.
“You know I always say, go back to the voter, and I think when you see the amount of people that show up to the rallies for President Trump, and this $102 million fundraising haul, I think the voters in America — Republicans in America — would absolutely say the president’s the most popular Republican and still leads the party,” McDaniel told WABC Radio on “The Cats Roundtable” that aired Sunday.
McDaniel said Democrats are failing at everything from immigration and inflation to COVID-19 and personal freedom, making the 2022 elections essential for her party.
McDaniel called what President Joe Biden has done is a “catastrophe.”
“It’s pretty much been all ugly,” McDaniel said. “I think we can all agree. Look at our country right now. We’re in such bad shape.
“We had such a strong president, and now to have Biden do what he’s done with our borders so porous, with inflation going up, everyone is paying more. Your dollar is going less far than it used to. Gas prices are up. People can’t find people to work at their restaurants and their small businesses. It is a catastrophe.”
She also blasted attempts by progressives to expand the number of seats on the Supreme Court.
“Our country is at stake,” McDaniel told host John Catsimatidis. “It’s not just Democrat versus Republican. It’s Republicans versus communism. They want to take your freedom of speech away, your freedom of religion, our police. They are denigrating our country. They want to stack the Supreme Court, get rid of the filibuster.”
“We won’t recognize America if we don’t win this next election,” she added.
Trump has told folks he has made a decision on whether or not to run in 2024 but he has not declared any intention formally.
