Prominent conservative activist says Trump ‘disconnected from al-Qaeda’

  • A prominent conservative activist told Politico that Trump is “disconnected from al-Qaeda.”
  • “I think he’s getting bad advice from the people around him,” said Amy Kramer, leader of Women for America First.
  • Trump’s choices in the US Senate’s Republican primary have put him at odds with some right-wing activists.

A prominent conservative activist and organizer of the Save America rally said Jan. 6 that former President Donald Trump is “disconnected” from the Republican Party base and “received bad advice” after he switched his endorsement in the Alabama Senate race.

Katie Brett, who Trump backed shortly before the run-off after initially supporting it and then being rejected by the opposition MP. Moe Brooks, won the Republican primary round for an open seat in the US Senate in Alabama on Tuesday.

“Donald Trump is disconnected from al-Qaeda,” Amy Cramer, the leader of Women for America First and a supporter of Brooks, told Politico in a report on the runoff in the Alabama Senate on Tuesday.

“I don’t know what happened there,” Kramer, who is also a longtime activist in the Tea Party movement, told Politico. “I think he’s getting bad advice from the people around him, and I think that’s unfortunate, but it’s time for those of us in the movement to get back to basics, back to our first principles.”

“We were here long before President Trump came along, and we’ll be here long after,” she said.

Brooks has been one of Trump’s biggest allies in his efforts to nullify the 2020 presidential election in Congress, and has secured endorsements from a slew of global Trump figures in his Senate campaign.

But after Brooks’ fundraising slowed and faltered in the polls, Trump withdrew his endorsement, saying that Brooks “wake up” during the 2020 election.

“It’s quite clear that Donald Trump has no loyalty to anyone or anything but himself,” Brooks said in a previous interview with AL.com.

Senator. Similarly, Rand Paul of Kentucky, a longtime supporter of Brooks, said Trump’s turn on Brooks was “definitely a sense of bad irony.”

“A lot of us were conservatives, spotty liberals, and constitutionalists who didn’t exist long before Donald Trump even existed,” Paul said in a campaign call to support Brooks, according to Politico magazine. “We were glad Donald Trump was with us on a lot of things, but that doesn’t make it the end of it all.”

“I would say, without a doubt, that Mo Brooks is probably the most loyal person to Donald Trump of all the members of Congress I can think of,” Ball added. “And surely there is a sense of bad irony that the president did not reciprocate that loyalty. And I will never understand it, I will never justify it.”

Some of Trump’s other endorsements so far in this cycle, such as his support for Dr. Mehmet Oz and J.D. Vance ran open Senate seats in Pennsylvania and Ohio some Republicans in those states and fueled a rift between Trump and an influential Republican group, the Growth Club.

In other instances during the 2022 primary, Trump swept at the last minute to endorse a candidate, such as his support for Brett after he did not endorse Brooks, and his 11-hour endorsement of Doug Mastriano for the Republican nomination for Governor of Pennsylvania. .

And two other pro-Trump nominees for the US House of Representatives are in Georgia, a former state representative. Vernon Jones and Jake Evans also lost in the Republican primary runoff rounds on Tuesday.

Jones and Evans’ defeats continued Trump’s losing streak in Georgia, as his select candidates challenged the governor. Brian Kemp and Secretary of State Brad Ravensberger lost out completely in May.

But their losses are not a blanket rejection of Trump since the victors, Mike Collins and Rich McCormick, also embraced Trump politics. in Single campaign adFor example, Collins was seen driving a truck with “TRUMP AGENDA” printed on the side and a Trump bobblehead on the dashboard.

“At this point, Trump’s endorsement is neutral. It’s neither redundant nor negative,” Gordon Rhoden, the Republican Party chair for Athens and Clark County, told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “People are moving further.”
