President Donald Trump continued criticism of Never Trumpers in Washington, DC, on Friday, even asking reporters for a list of the ones working in his administration.
The president spoke with reporters as he left for South Carolina to speak at the Second Step Presidential Justice Forum at Benedict College.
“Who are they? Tell me. Tell me who the Never Trumpers are because I’m not a fan of the Never Trumpers,” Trump said.
Daniel McAdams, Executive Director of the Ron Paul Institute, lashed out at Secretary of State Mike Pompeo for hiring NeverTrump “neocon war criminal” Elliott Abrams to oversee a US regime change operation in Venezuela after Trump had already rejected Abrams for the State Department in 2016.
“You CANNOT make this up!!!” McAdams tweeted Friday. “@SecPompeo has appointed as his point man on Venezuela the EXACT person most involved in the 2002 US coup in Venezuela! Elliott Abrams – a neocon war criminal!”
Never Trump establishment conservatives Max Boot and Jennifer Rubin have openly expressed their desire to see pro-Trump Republicans replaced with illegal immigrants.
Writing for the Washington Post, neo-con globalist Boot wrote, “If only we could keep the hard-working Latin American newcomers and deport the contemptible Republican cowards — that would truly enhance America’s greatness.”
Jennifer Rubin, who is also employed by the Washington Post as a “right of center” columnist, reacted to the column by tweeting it and enthusiastically proclaiming “yes!”
Incumbent Republican South Carolina Rep. Mark Sanford, a frequent Trump critic who the president lambasted earlier in the day as “nothing but trouble” and “very unhelpful,” was ousted in Tuesday night’s primary by state Rep. Katie Arrington.
On a key primary night with elections also held in Maine, Virginia, Nevada and North Dakota, the results in South Carolina were an unmistakably positive referendum on President Trump’s tenure.
Arrington’s shock win was also a dramatic rebuke of Sanford’s heated “Never Trump”-style rhetoric and scandal-pocked career. It signaled that the president’s base in the state remains solidly behind him ahead of November’s midterm elections, despite withering criticism from both inside and outside the Republican party.
You know all that insufferable babbling and crying about “principles” we had to endure from you Never Trump Konservative Ken Dolls?
Your rending of your cheap suits, your 180s over classic GOP policies because The Donald actually tried to enact them, and your mortifying blubbering to suddenly sympathetic hosts on MSNBC and CNN about how awful our President is? With your sad, drawn faces and high-pitched voices, you True Conservatives of Conservatism™, you Keepers of the Flame of Conservativeness resisted the coming of Donald Trump (and those who supported him) because… because…
Because that’s not who we are…
Because we’re better than that…
United Nations (U.N.) Deputy Ambassador Jon Lerner has deep ties to not only his longtime colleague and boss, U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, but also Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, the failed “Never Trump” movement, and the pro-mass immigration billionaire GOP mega-donors the Koch brothers.
Lerner, 49, withdrew from consideration to become Vice President Mike Pence’s national security adviser after news broke that President Trump was reportedly livid that a key member of the Never Trump movement would be joining his White House.
Still, Lerner has squeezed his way into the administration he avidly fought against despite having no foreign policy experience, with a source telling the New York Times that the consultant will informally advise the White House on national security.
