Corruption runs deep – US conservatives are divided over Trump’s future | US News
Will Donald Trump be an expendable political force when he is replaced on Wednesday by Joe Biden after one term in office?
The Republican Party did not do well under his leadership. He lost control of the White House, the US Congress, and the Senate to the Democrats.
But Trump card He still has a loyal “base”.
At 74.2 million, he claimed – honestly – to have more votes in the 2020 election than any previous candidate, Republican or Democratic. His problem is that Biden I got seven million more, 81.3 million.

Journalist and editor Bill Kristol was a prominent figure in the neoconservative movement that dominated the right during the Reagan and Bush years – but he severed his relationship with Republicans to become “Never Trump.”

“There is no such thing as Trump,” he says.
“Trump supporters are not an immutable block of granite. On the afternoon of January 20, Trump moves from sitting in the most powerful office in the world, the Oval Office, to sitting by the pool at Mar-a-Lago. Same again.”
Like Bolton, reality TV star Omarza Manigault Newman barely spent a year working with President Trump, despite having been a friend since she was in the first series of Apprentice. In 2004.
Whether or not he is convicted in the Senate, she predicts that he will not be able to stay out of the Senate.
“He’s going into politics because he can’t help himself,” says Manigault Newman, author of Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House.
“Now that he’s stripped of his tweeter on Twitter, we expect to see Donald Trump try to lobby wherever he can … because that’s the narcissist.”
