Although he incited supporters before the Capitol riots on January 6, he remained loyal to the former president.
new York- With the cancellation of his Facebook account, being abandoned on Mar-a-Lago, and mocking his new website, Donald J. Trump was largely out of the public eye this week. Although the Republican Party’s surrender to the former president is clearer than ever, so is the damage he lied about his election theft to American politics.
In Washington, Republicans tried to deprive Representative Liz Cheney of his leadership in the House of Representatives. This was a punishment for condemning Trump’s false claims of voter fraud as a threat to democracy.
Lawmakers in Florida and Texas have proposed new measures that could slow down voting, echoing the fictitious narrative of Trump and his allies that the electoral system is manipulating him. In Arizona, the state Republican Party began a weird review of the November election results, which involved looking for traces of bamboo on last year’s ballots.
Although supporters were incited before the Capitol riots on January 6, loyalty to the former president remained. Although Republicans are caught in the illusion of election theft, Democrats are still committed to ruling a country that is still struggling to escape a deadly pandemic.
Strategists on both sides assured that this inconsistent dynamic—two parties operating in two different realities—may define the country’s politics in the next few years.
