Republican National Committee chair Ronna McDaniel on Sunday said Republicans “overwhelmingly” agree with former President Donald Trump’s actions in office.
In an interview on CBS News’ “Face The Nation,” McDaniel conceded Republicans have their differences as well, but are more united than divided.
“The voters are saying overwhelmingly they agree with what President Trump did in office,” McDaniel said. “As you see Joe Biden strip away energy independence and cancel the Keystone pipeline, as you see Joe Biden say, I’m going to prioritize opening our borders over opening our schools, opening our economies, when you see the vaccine rollout that started under Operation Warp Speed in less than a year — these are the types of things that voters are saying they saw happen in the Trump administration and now they’re seeing the Biden administration strip those things away.”
According to McDaniel, the party “overwhelmingly agrees with each other on more than we disagree with each other,” citing Republican governors who “are leading across the country are following the science, keeping the kids safe and healthy, but getting them back into school.”
“These are the things that our party stands for, opening up our economy, opening up our schools,” she said.
“You’re seeing more and more Republicans recognize we need to unite around how do we win back these majorities and stop [President Joe] Biden in his tracks,” she said.
According to McDaniel, the GOP has denounced white supremacy, but Democrats haven’t done the same about Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan or Antifa.
“We passed a resolution unanimously from the RNC members three years ago saying we condemn white supremacy, anti-Semitism, KKK, and I’m going to add QAnon to that,” she said.
“They are not welcome in our party. I have not seen Democrats do that with Louis Farrakhan, who calls the Jewish people termites. I have not seen them do that with Antifa, who last night committed violence again in Portland,” she said.
