As the midterm elections of 2022 came and went, warring political factions in Washington DC appeared to be attempting to use the contest to somehow tarnish their enemies.
In other words, whatever disappointment arrived on election day was quickly spun into political attacks, meant to suggest that things would need to change before 2024 lest they wished to succumb to the same fate.
This is especially true in the way that many in the GOP attempted to blame Donald Trump for the trouble they experienced, as the Republican Party’s centrist wing continues to attempt to rid themselves of the ultra-popular former President and his MAGA Movement.
Trump has a different idea, however.
Trump faced heavy criticism following midterm elections after Trump-endorsed candidates lost key close races across the country. Many commentators argued Trump had forced the party to put up bad candidates, but Trump now argues it was the fault of staunchly pro-life Republicans.
“It wasn’t my fault that the Republicans didn’t live up to expectations in the midterms,” Trump wrote on his Truth Social platform. “It was the ‘abortion issue,’ poorly handled by many Republicans, especially those that firmly insisted on No Exceptions, even in the case of rape, incest or life of the mother, that lost large numbers of voters.”
“Also, the people that pushed so hard, for decades, against abortion, got their wish from the U.S. Supreme Court, and just plain disappeared, not to be seen again,” he added.
Trump is the current presumptive nominee for the GOP in 2024, largely due to the fact that he’s the only person currently in the race.
