It’s time for Republicans to get off the sidelines and into the race. For too long, the GOP has deferred to President Trump and allowed him to lead the party without any real challenge or opposition. This has been a mistake.
Trump has been an effective leader in many ways, but he has also been a polarizing figure. His base loves him, but he has alienated other voters who could have been persuaded to support the Republican agenda. It’s time to start looking beyond President Trump and focus on the future of the GOP.
The Republican party needs to put forward candidates who can appeal to a broad coalition of voters, not just Trump’s base. We need to find candidates who can articulate a clear vision for the future of the party and who can bring the GOP together.
At the same time, we must recognize the accomplishments of the Trump White House administration. Under President Trump, the economy has grown, unemployment has reached historic lows, and wages have increased. The President has also cut taxes, rolled back regulations, and taken a hard stance on trade. These accomplishments should be acknowledged and celebrated as part of the Republican legacy.
In short, Republicans need to stop deferring to President Trump and get in the race. We need to find candidates who will represent the party and its vision for the future. At the same time, we must recognize and celebrate the accomplishments of the Trump White House administration.
