Trump argued that Republicans need to pursue his “Make America Great” policy if he wants to win big in the midterm elections of 2022.
In an interview broadcast on April 19 by Fox News, host Sean Hannity asked former US President Donald Trump if Republican candidates should run on the “Make America Great “in the upcoming midterm parliamentary elections or not.
“If they want to win, they should do it. We have expanded the Republican party,” replied the former US president, citing the number of votes he won in the group of Latin American voters in the 2020 election.
“If you want to win and win big, this is what you have to do. You have to do that,” he continued.
Trump’s statement has been at the heart of the internal Republican controversy over the past few months, since he left the White House in January: these party members should pursue a super-conservative and divisive populist brand. The turn is associated with the image of Trump, or opens a new direction after a series of election failures.
Nearly three months after the end of his term, Trump remains the most influential Republican man. He vowed to participate in Republican politics as the party seeks to regain the House and Senate from the Democrats in the midterm elections of 2022.
Although some candidates have embraced the Trump-branded political breeze, many are hesitant, arguing that repeating the former president’s messages and strategies will not help them make up for their losses election last year.
However, observers say Republicans who want to leave Trump also need to be wary of political risks. The former US president has publicly announced his intention to influence the party’s primary election, supporting “take the seats” for those he deems “disloyal”, including Georgia Governor Brian Kemp and Senator Lisa Murkowski of Alaska.
