Former President Donald Trump isn’t done with politics yet, no matter how much the Democrats have wished that he’d just go away.
Trump, while plotting his next move from the comfort of Mar-a-Lago, has been a bit quieter than usual. Much of this can be contributed to the fact that he remains banned from both Twitter and Facebook, rendering him unable to whip up controversy on the whim.
Now, when he does speak, his statements are more succinct and focused…and a heck of a lot more brutal.
Former President Donald Trump said he would campaign against Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, and blasted her as a “disloyal and very bad Senator” in a statement this weekend.
“I will not be endorsing, under any circumstances, the failed candidate from the great State of Alaska, Lisa Murkowski,” Trump said in a statement. “She represents her state badly and her country even worse. I do not know where other people will be next year, but I know where I will be – in Alaska campaigning against a disloyal and very bad Senator.”
“Her vote to advance radical left Democrat Deb Haaland for Secretary of the Interior is yet another example of Murkowski not standing up for Alaska,” he continued.
Trump’s statement isn’t exactly shocking – he said the same thing in June after Murkowski told reporters she was “struggling” to support the president in his reelection because of how he handled the George Floyd protests.
Trump has continued to be a force in the Republican Party of late, not only teasing a 2024 run during a speech at CPAC, but also reminding the entirety of the GOP that they’ll need his MAGA voting bloc if they wish to remain employees of the government.
