Donald Trump is clearly running for President in 2024, but can Republicans trust him? He is putting his fragile ego not only over the Republican Party, but also over the good of the country and every local community. He remains very popular with the Republican base, but at some point the base needs to consider whether Trump actually has our best interests at heart or whether he is all about his own fragile ego.
There was a time when Republicans could work with Trump. He repealed harmful regulations on business when he first entered office, supported pro-life policy, got a significant tax cut through Congress, got us out of the foolish nuclear deal with Iran, reversed Barack Obama’s attacks on due process for college men accused of sexual misconduct and defended religious freedom. Realistically, we would not have gotten any of that had Republicans not worked with and supported Trump while he was in office.
