Trump Cornered at Home: Republican Leadership Wants Him Down


The Republican leadership is on the verge of jamming Donald Trump, who is bidding for the White House. This unpredictable move was characterised by Mitt Romney’s words against Trump.

The former Republican presidential candidate, Romney, labeled Trump as “phoney,” a “fraud” and a “conman.”

“A person so untrustworthy and dishonest as Hillary Clinton must not become president. But a Trump nomination enables her victory,” said Romney.

“He has neither the temperament nor the judgement to be president.”

According to The Sydney Morning Herald, Romney also said that a presidency under Trump would certainly jeopardise the US and its complete democratic political process.

Romney was extremely critical of the businessman’s unreliable remarks on national security, humiliating women, minorities and persons with disability in his speech.

As Romney predicted, Trump’s reaction to this was a combination of anger and personal attacks.

“I backed Mitt Romney, you can see how loyal he is,” he said.

“He was begging for my endorsement. I could have said ‘Mitt, drop to your knees.’ He would have dropped to his knees.”

While retaliating, the real estate businessman called Romney a “lightweight” and a “choke artist.” Romney was a “failed candidate,” says Trump referring to his 2012 loss to President Obama.

The GOP frontrunner also said that he is a “better businessman” that Romney.

After Romney’s unexpected condemnation, Senator John McCain thrashed Trump through an open letter. The letter contained denunciations from dozens of conservative security experts and one-time advisers, on Trump’s national ability.

Senior Republicans, Senator Ben Sasse of Nebraska and Governor Charlie Baker of Massachusetts, are going public with their disapproval on voting for and supporting the billionaire as their presidential candidate.

A group of important and well-known party members are following Sasse and Baker.

On the other hand, there had been protests outside Fox Theatre, as reported by CBS Detroit. The protesters flooded the streets with posters saying “Dump Trump” and “Workers for $15 Wage.”

Their slogans said, “Can’t Take No More.”

According to Jonathan Jones of The Guardian, there is a scarcity of satirical artwork on Trump that would stop him, like Warhol “demonised” Nixon and Heartfield did Hitler’s parody.

“If I were an artist, I would not be satirising Trump just yet,” Jones said. “I would be making a poster of Hillary Clinton. And the message? Last best hope.”
