Billionaires against Trump? A Koch group released a piercing attack ad against Trump. But the Former GOP Chair believes it will be ineffectual for most of MAGA.
Koch slams Trump
MSNBC highlighted a recent Reuters analysis that stated that Republicans bleed donors and cash over Trump’s false election claims. It is leaving Republicans in swing states broke.
Real estate mogul Ron Weiser has been one of the biggest donors to the Michigan Republican Party, giving $4.5 million in the recent midterm election cycle. But no more. Weiser, former chair of the party, has halted his funding, citing concerns about the organization’s stewardship. He says he doesn’t agree with Republicans who promote falsehoods about election results and insists it’s “ludicrous” to claim Donald Trump, who lost Michigan by 154,000 votes in 2020, carried the state. “I question whether the state party has the necessary expertise to spend the money well,” he said.
The withdrawal of bankrollers like Weiser reflects the high price Republicans in the battleground states of Michigan and Arizona are paying for their full-throated support of former President Trump and his unsubstantiated claims that the 2020 election was stolen from him. The two parties have hemorrhaged money in recent years, undermining Republican efforts to win back the ultra-competitive states that could determine who wins the White House and control of the U.S. Congress in next November’s elections, according to a Reuters review of financial filings, plus interviews with six major donors and three election campaign experts.
A political network financed by the deep-pocketed Koch organization decided that Donald Trump was too much of a liability. They vowed to sink Trump and released an ad that knocked him as they started that process. They state categorically in the ad that Trump lost. They all but called him a narcissist for concentrating on his legal troubles, his lies, and just himself. The narrator in the ad said in no uncertain terms that Republicans will lose if Trump is the nominee.
While it is more than likely that Trump would lose to Biden, I would not assume that is a foregone conclusion.
“This ad will mean very little,” Michael Steele said. “It will do very little. If nothing else, it solidifies more around Trump. It sets up what a lot of those MAGA heads believe is this sort of anti-establishment us-versus-them kind of mindset.”
He is right. If Trump is to be stopped, the monies must go, not to other Republicans or ads, but to Democrats and Progressives nationwide. They must bite their Republican tongues and save the country.
