More than a hundred former Republicans are in talks to form a new center-right party to oppose former US President Donald Trump. Reported by Reuters.
The negotiators conceived of breaking away from the Republican Party because of its unwillingness to oppose Trump and “his attempts to undermine democracy.” So far, these discussions are at an early stage. Some 120 former Republican officials, including former administration officials of Ronald Reagan, George W. Bush, George W. Bush, and Trump himself, are reported to have discussed the issue during a Zoom conference last week.
“Much of the GOP is becoming increasingly radical and threatening American democracy. The party must reaffirm its commitment to truth, reason and fundamental ideals, otherwise it is clearly necessary to create something new, “- said the agency politician Evan McMullin.
On February 9, the Senate began a second impeachment trial against Trump. On January 14, the House of Representatives voted to impeach the former owner of the White House in connection with the riots in Washington. The Democrats motivate the decision, among other things, by the fact that after the completion of the process, he will no longer be able to run for president. This is the first time the US has attempted to remove a state leader from office after the end of his presidential term.
